Year in Review: 2014

Here's our 2014 in review! (I know I am dreadfully behind on this blog, but I wanted to do this one since it's always a lot of fun. I hope to catch up on more posts soon.) And this is terrible, but I can't think of much to say about our year! Most things seem to be exactly the same, no major changes (which is really a good thing, we are all healthy and happy.) It is always fun to see how much they've grown and changed (or not) in a year.
JANUARY: Learning my camera and shooting in manual mode for the first time.
FEBRUARY: Trips to the museum and fun with our new Lego/train table.
MARCH: Finally getting back outside after a LONG and cold winter.

APRIL: Ok, this is my all-time favorite picture of the boys. Definitely a high point! And I love the reflection picture too, so I couldn't narrow it down to two pictures this month. :)

MAY: Finishing up a great first year of "school".

JUNE: Popsicles and snow cones on the deck was always a big hit. And we took our first trip to the strawberry patch to pick our own.
JULY: Our first and I think only trip to the pool this summer.
AUGUST: This is from a family picture session. And our 3rd trip to the State Fair was a lot of fun this time, since the boys loved the animals and tractors.

SEPTEMBER: Back to school with new teachers. And turning three and looking so grown up!

 OCTOBER: Always a fun month with Harry Potter costumes at Zoo Boo and trips to the pumpkin patch.

NOVEMBER: I think I took a break from my camera this month! Had hardly any to choose from. This is from our Christmas card photo shoot.

DECEMBER: Finally a nice visit with Santa! No tears. And fun picking out our Christmas tree. They really enjoyed all the parts of the season this year, including decorating the tree.
That was our 2014! Lots of good memories while we look forward to what 2015 will bring!

365 Week 42

Here's another crazy week! We enjoyed some beautiful fall weather and I had to get a picture of the leaves on our street and one of all the boys mowing. We had our playdate Halloween party, but it was hard to get very many pictures of all the kids, so I just picked a cute one of the boys. And for our anniversary, we tried to take some nice family pictures. My mom pushed the shutter for me since my remote wasn't working, but I did set it up on a tripod and pick the settings. It was really hard! I'm sure the focus is off since it's hard to stay in the exact same spot. But I think we got a few cute ones and that's all that matters! :)

Here comes another week! Lanore up on the couch where she shouldn't be, cutie Brayden's 6 month pictures and a trip to Pumpkinfest on Saturday. A fun fall week!

365 Week 40

This week is a little bit of a "cheat." I helped out a friend and did a photography session fundraiser, where all the fees were donated to a cause. So since that was a pretty big day for me, with lots of editing afterwards, I decided to post these as a week of pictures (since I definitely took some days off after this!) It was fun to work with several different families, and a little scary to work with some I didn't know. But I think overall the day was fun and I got some good shots! Good practice for sure.

365 Week 39

 This week started with our friend Cecelia turning one, but it was impossible to get a good shot of the three of them! I love the duck shot I took while walking through a park one morning. And I was pretty proud of myself for putting out a pumpkin and a mum to celebrate fall! And we ended the week with a trip to Zoo Boo with the boys as the cutest ever Harry Potters!
