Year In Review!

What a year 2016 has been! It has been by far the best year of our lives! Let's take a walk down memory lane.


We celebrated sweet Emma's 12th birthday. She has been with me her whole life and I love her so.


I spent a week in Florida with our niece and nephew because my sister went away for work. It was such a fun time with them. 


We found out that we would be having a precious baby girl! To celebrate we bought a new car. Such an amazing day. 

The kids came to spend their spring break and Easter with us. It was the best!


We ran a color run 5k on post! It was so fun watching the kids have such a great time.

We also took the kiddos to Monster Jam, it was awesome! 

We went to Florida to celebrate Kyle's birthday and he got the best gift from my sister and the kids. He got to pet and feed a sloth. :)


My Dad came to visit and spent 2 weeks with us. Since Kyle was busy with work he helped me finish a few projects around the house.


We celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary at a beautiful restaurant in town! Hard to believe the kiddos from 6th grade history class are married all these years later.

We had our maternity photos done and they came out perfect! This is definitely one of my favorites.

Kyle's parents came to visit and it was so great to spend time with them.


We spent 4th of July in Florida, went hung out at the beach, had a BBQ, and celebrated Kylie and Grayson's birthdays at a water park.

I also ran my last race before E came at 34 weeks!


We celebrated Fishy's 8th birthday! He is such a silly kitty.

This was my due date month and was so ready to meet our baby girl. I finally went into the hospital on August 31st.


Our precious blessing and miracle, Emersyn Kay, was born on September 1st! The absolute best gift we could have ever received.

My family came to visit and meet our sweet girl. It was wonderful having them here.


Kyle's Mom came to visit and it was a great time.

We celebrated E's first Halloween and our little ninja turtle had a great time.


We headed to Florida to see family and run our first half marathon since E was born and it was amazing.

We also took this trip as a chance to celebrate Lisa and Kylie's birthdays!

My Dad came to spend Thanksgiving with us and we took him out to run a turkey trot with us.


We had a night out to ourselves and went to the OPS Group Ball.

We celebrated E's 1st Christmas and went down to Florida to ring in the New Year!

What an amazing 2016 it was! We spent a ton of time with family and welcomed our rainbow baby! 

I hope you all had an amazing 2016 and here is to an even better 2017!

**We will finally find out on January 10th if Kyle will be getting promoted, woo!**
