Hard to believe that we are saying good-bye to 2014 tonight. I honestly cannot believe how fast this year went. 2014 we were blessed. Blessed with health, blessed with friends and family, blessed with new jobs and current jobs and blessed with growth in so many areas of our lives.
So my word for 2014 – BLESSED!
We started the year off with Jeremy recovering from his last surgery and returning to work. Blessed. We set a goal of saving close to $1400.00 by year end using the 52 Week Money Challenge. Jude got creative with these Heart Sun Catchers. We started a tradition with my Aunt by taking Jude to the National Western Stock Show and Pro Rodeo with her. Such a fun time.
We brought the rainbow fun into our kitchen and our craft table. Sure my Rainbow Cake in Mason Jars brought an awesome pinterest fail but I tried again and SUCCESS!! Jude made a perfect Rainbow Stained Glass for our front window too! I think we were ready for spring! We got a short visit with Jeremy’s parents and enjoyed a trip to the Butterfly Pavilion. Jude got to go roller skating for the first time! Teagan loved running around the rink too!
Teagan had a lot of firsts in April, growing up so fast. Teagan did great at her first Dentist Appointment – clean and healthy teeth!! We waited for a while but final had to give in and take her in for her first bang trim too! We went in for her first haircut and she came out looking like a little lady! It was decided that Teagan needed her own room so we transformed the nursery into a big boy room for Jude which meant he was finally in a Big Boy Big!! Easter was a great time for both kids. Lots of fun doing the traditional Egg Hunts, Easter Bunny Visit, Easter Eggs and church.
T-Ball and Tumbling – it is our life. Our weekends are full of fun activities and I love it! We took a family field trip to see Thomas the Train – Teagan was super excited to meet him for the first time. Jude’s school photo turned out so cute! He looks so much older than last year!
I shared a family recipe that Jeremy adores. Sausage Soup Recipe. We focused on staying healthy during the holidays. We started preparing for our Elf on the Shelf to return! Once again, my blogging BFF came to Colorado for a visit. This time we headed to the North Pole in Colorado Springs for some Christmas fun!
