Hands Down...

 Hands down my favorite holiday! I love spending quality time with family and friends, with endless joy on my kids face. Seeing them interact with family and seeing how much they grow year to year, puts a huge smile on my face.

The excitement of Christmas has never left me. Ever since I was a kid, I would look forward to spending time with family and indulge in the season of giving!
Now watching the joy and excitement on my kids faces as they open presents and watching them bonding with family, makes me one happy mama!!

 We started off Christmas eve at my in-laws house for some celebrating!

2013 in Review

Another year has flown by and I find myself wondering how it all happened so fast! The kids have grown so much this past year and my little baby isn't a baby anymore.They amaze me with the things they remember from year to year. 

 {they decided to call it quits in the first 10 minutes}

 {He's not my little baby anymore, he is getting so big!}

 {I've done many races since then and will continue them in the spring. I am not a runner, but I do enjoy a fun run now and then}

 {The more kids you add...the tougher it is to get them all to look and smile}

 {I am NOT a 'green thumb' and not everything survived because of the bunnies, but we had fun and will try again next year}

 {My little drama queen is growing out of her 'little girl' stage}

 {He continues to love baseball and is getting unbelievable better each year}

 {Many memorable years and an amazing family comes from granny and gramps}

 {A very fun girl filled weekend that is was a start to an annual tradition}

 {Our fun Music in Plymouth that we celebrate at each year}

{Abbys favorite sport and Chase's 'back up' sport}

 {Our family loves camping and we fill our summer with many fun trips}

 {How is my first born already 8 years old?!}

 {Two in school gives mommy a little daytime break}

 {Loved his first kid pitch league and did great at pitching}

 {Not a toddler anymore...she is growing up in her sister's shadow}

 {He finally found the girl of his dreams and they make a perfect couple. Not to mention we really love her too!}

 {My parents took us all to Riviera Maya for a family reunion, sans kids}

 {We enjoyed an extra big Christmas celebration this year with lots more family to celebrate with}

{God has blessed us with 4 amazing kids and even when times get tough, the good will always outweigh the 'bad.'}

Wishing you all a very HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Many memories and blessings in 2014!
