A Year in Review


Not much happened in January which was awesome!  Celia had a mega growth spurt, Audrey was hanging in strong in Kindergarten and enjoying her afternoons.


Ice skating and a trip to Grandma and Grandpa's in which we made a great trip to the zoo.

This little peanut starting working out with me a little, Audrey and I enjoyed our freedom in the afternoons

We had fun celebrating Easter

We celebrated May 4th, Celia had to do a timeline for school which lead us through memory lane, Audrey, took a trip to Morris Arboretum

Kindergarten complete, 3rd grade complete, onward to swim team!

A great visit with the cousins and finished out a strong swim season


Wrapped up a beach trip and onward to 4th and 1st grade!

She turned 10!


Soccer for Audrey, Basketball for Celia, Halloween and lots of stress.
Our house, primarily our sewer pipe caused massive stress along with some other events.  I just have to add it because it was a big part of my Fall.   I did get to go on an awesome field trip with Audrey.  The first field trip I have gotten to go on with her!


She turned 7!  

Well we ended the year with the stomach bug which crushed our trip plans but we had a nice relaxing week at home.  We had a good Christmas Everyone is rested and ready to tackle 2018!!  We start it with more basketball, some swimming, some soccer, and piano.

Merry Christmas

A fair warning that no cat was injured in the following scenario.  Fluffy is however contemplating her purpose in life a little but is comforted by the fact that she is the MOST important thing in one 7 year old's life.

Happy Birthday Audrey

 We often don't know what you will come up with at any moment as you live to be silly (at home)

Fluffy is your best buddy and your constant companion.
Your sister is a very close second and the feeling is so mutual, the two of you are best friends.
You love animals with a strong passion and have a ton of animal facts available when needed.

You are a character but you are still shy in most places.
At school you are talking more but still very quiet.
Your teacher says you are very sweet and respectful at school. 

We get glimpses of a serious Audrey

Then this...

You begged me about a million times to put the Christmas tree up.
So it was up for your birthday this year.

Audrey, if we only knew the screaming little baby that gave us all sleepless nights and a couple years of frustration would give us this amazing little girl we likely wouldn't have minded the wait.
You are a happy, fun, and silly ball of energy.
Here's to another year.  I only ask that your legs don't grow quite so fast as we are running out of pants!!  Love you sweet girl.
