2013: A Year in Photos

It's no secret that 2013 is probably not my favorite year of my life. It brought with it some seriously hard times for us. There were many nights spent in sadness, in grief, and in pouring our hearts out to God in prayer. 

However, in the midst of all that, there were also some seriously good times. There was joy. There was laughter. There was God's supreme faithfulness to our family. This post is going to highlight a few of our favorite moments of the year, as well as some of my favorite photos. 

My goal was to post one photo for each month, but there were too many good moments to choose from. So, I threw that goal out the window and just posted *almost* as many photos as I wanted. :-)

We are so grateful for these good times in midst of trial. 

January: Soaking up time together as a family, 

and cherishing our precious littles. 

February: Vacationing at Disney World, 

lots of character meetings,

loving Mickey Mouse,

and celebrating Brianna and Brenson's birthdays.

March: Soaking up cuteness, 

visiting the zoo, 


dressing in green for St. Patty's Day, 

and looking cute for Easter.

 April: Family photos!



May: Mother's Day,


and spending time in the beautiful outdoors.

June: Participating in Angie's wedding.


July: Hosting an Independence Day celebration.

August: More cuteness, 

and lots of days spent at our new local splashpad!


September: Kicking off Autumn.

October: Our traditional visit to the pumpkin patch,



and family themed Halloween costumes.

November: Celebrating thankfulness. 

December: Family snow days,


showing love during the holiday season,


feeling the magic of Christmas through the eyes of our precious babies, 

celebrating on Christmas Eve, 

Christmas Day, and for several days afterwards. 

Goodbye 2013! We're not too sorry to see you go, but we are grateful for the good moments you gave us. Here's to 2014!
