2013 In Review

Here we go again! Another whole year to look back on. I don't think there's any way I can limit to one picture a month like I did last year. But here are the highlights of 2013.
We visited the doctor for our 15 month check up, and got some professional photos taken at a studio.

We celebrated my birthday with some family photos, and we threw our first toddler Valentine's Day Party. The boys looked so cute!
Henry and Holden enjoyed getting outside (even though it was still cold!) to check out their new playhouse. They also got to be the ring bearers in their Aunt Erica's wedding and looked so handsome in their outfits!
Happy Easter, boys! They enjoyed their first Easter egg hunts and checking out what was in their baskets (especially the chocolate...)
Happy Mother's Day to me! We tried for a nice picture. My mom got us a zoo membership, so we enjoyed checking out the animals.
First haircuts! They looked so grown up afterwards, but they did not enjoy it! We also took our first family vacation to the beach and had a great week with our cousins. 
We went to a concert in the park and checked out the new fire station near our house. Lots of fun summer and outdoor activities.

Our second trip to the State Fair, where we enjoyed the tractors and never wanted to leave. We tried out some splash parks and spent some time in the water with friends.

This was a big month! We started our first day of Parent's Day Out, on Mondays from 9-1. There was crying at first, but now they look forward to class! The boys also turned TWO, which we celebrated with an amazing farm-themed party.
Our second trip to Pumpkinfest was as awesome as the first. The boys loved the pumpkins, hay ride, and all the activities. We also spent plenty of time in costume, from parties, to Zoo Boo, to trick or treating.
Loving the leaves a lot more than last year! They liked raking and jumping in the piles. We had a fun Thanksgiving with our families.

Snow is a lot more fun this year, too! They can actually walk well in boots and keep gloves on, so they can enjoy being outside. Christmas traditions were special this year, too, since the boys liked picking out the tree, decorating it and unwrapping what was under it!

That was our year in a few snapshots! We were certainly lucky in so many ways. The boys get to go to the zoo and the museum, music class and PDO, and have made lots of special friends that make our weeks go by fast. Thank you to all of our family and friends for being an amazing part of our lives! 2013 was a good one, and we look forward to what 2014 will bring!
