2014 Year in Review


As you know, I love social media but really want to have my highlights on my blog.  I am going to do a year in review, photo style and hope to start making a "Month in Review" post, highlighting memories on my blog starting 2/1, at least that's the plan,LOL!

As I scrolled through pics I was reminded what an AWESOME year it was.  While there are SO MANY things I loved about 2014, one of my favorites were seeing the kids excel in swimming, especially Anna finding her niche and watching her confidence grow! Another favorite was watching Christopher grow in the culinary department. That kid LOVES to cook, his favorite is making Mac and cheese! My favorite highlight for Sofia was her losing her first tooth!!! Oh, and one of my personal HURRAYS is that we met our goal of getting out and exploring more of the outdoor sights that Austin has to offer us! 

Enjoy the review, in random order since I'm trying to figure out this Blogger app for iPad!  I just want to get it posted, LOL!!!!
