2014: A Year in Photos

These "Year in Photos" posts have become some of my favorite that I do each year. I enjoy going through all our photos from the year and choosing the ones that make me smile the most. With that said, every year I tell myself that I'm going to limit it to two photos per month. Well. As you will see, that didn't happen this year. I'm pretty sure I haven't been successful with that goal yet, but this year is especially bad. Be prepared for photo overload :-).

Some months have a few more than others, but they are all my favorites! Praise God for all the blessings - big and small - of 2014!

Lots of outside play,

spending time together as a family, 

and family photos!

Celebrating Brenson's 2nd birthday, 

Brianna's 4th birthday,

sharing a circus birthday party with our family and friends,

enjoying the winter weather, 

and having professional photos taken of the kiddos.

Enjoying the winter weather, 

roadtripping in Oklahoma, 

wearing green for St. Patty's Day, 

and finally welcoming spring!

More Oklahoma exploring,

 camping as a family,

enjoying a bit of hiking, 

Easter at the N Homestead

Easter Sunday at home, 

celebrating Easter with friends,

and one of many zoo trips for the year!

Celebrating Mother's Day, 

soaking up time with my cuties, 

and celebrating G-Jo's 60th birthday!

Finding out we were expecting again,

celebrating Father's Day, 

and vacationing in Colorado!

Finding out we're expecting TWINS, 

celebrating Independence Day, 

enjoying the beautiful summer foliage, 

swim lessons for Chloe Jo and Brianna, 

and soaking up some time with our cousins!

Announcing our BIG news to the world, 

watching the belly start to really grow (14 weeks), 

Momma suffering from morning sickness causing Daddy to function outside of his comfort zone,

and lots of days spent at home due to morning sickness (but still having fun!). 

Vacationing in St. Louis, 

soaking up the Autumn air, 

walking to end Alzheimer's in honor of my Pappy, 

utter silliness at the doctor's office waiting to see the twins, 

and watching that belly continue to grow (20 weeks)!

Family time at the pumpkin patch, 

Momma taking a girls' trip to Chicago, 

carving pumpkins together, 

dressing up for Halloween, 

and enjoying that growing belly (24 weeks)!

Celebrating the wedding of a dear friend,

a shower for the twinbies, 

purchasing a mini-van to accommodate our growing family,

observing Thanksgiving,

and Christmas at G-Jo and Grampy's house,

and yep, watching that belly grow, grow, grow (29 weeks)!

Being thankful for some much-needed outdoor play, 

getting ready for Christmas,

reading lots of Christmas stories before bed,

celebrating Christmas as a family, 

and still growing those twinbies (even with the flu at 33 weeks)!

What a beautiful year it has been . . . so full of blessings from above!

Happy New Year to all my readers. May 2015 have bountiful blessings in store for you!
