My favorite moments of 2014- reflections in pictures

I seriously don't know where 2014 has gone. It has flown by. Really the last 10 years of my life has gone by so fast! 2014 was a great year. I went back to work from maternity leave, becoming a working mom of two, which is definitely a challenge in itself. I got promoted! I watched Holly grow and reach milestones too quickly. I have watched Grant's vocabulary go from 50 words to full blown conversations. I love seeing Grant and Holly interact with each other. Sibling love is the best as the year has gone by. 2014 has been a great year! May 2015 be another great year.

To follow tradition with my blog, every year I highlight my year with a picture to represent each month. I have done this for 2012 (click here to see)  and 2013 (click here to see) . Now here is to 2014!

Here are my reflections for 2014, in pictures:

January: Grant takes swimming classes at the YMCA!

February: Grant turns two! This is Pin the Nose on Elmo with Grant's added artwork

March- I had my golden birthday! I turned 30 on the 30th! I had a great night with friends!

April- Happy Easter! All dressed up!
May- Getting Hot in Cleveland with a girls weekend to celebrate Megan's birthday!


June- Dancing the night away at Greg and Heather's wedding
July- Being a wolf on our family vacation at the great wolf lodge

August- Celebrated my co-workers bridal shower, baby wolf-face style.
September- Having fun at the pork festival
October- All dressed up for Halloween!

November- Happy First Birthday Holly!
December- Merry Christmas! Love these two!

Merry Christmas and where does the time go?

I am still alive! I know it has been two months since my last post! It's been crazy recently! I need more time to write. All I feel like I do is work, do laundry, clean, get the kids ready for bed, and repeat. Not enough time in the day, and where has the time gone? 2014 will be over in a few days! Ekk!!

I hope everyone had a good Christmas. It was fun to watch Grant and Holly enjoy Christmas. Grant was so excited about Christmas this year! We let him decide what to give Santa the night before, and he selected popcorn and tea! He didn't want to share his cookies with Santa! Grant is so funny! Here are some pictures to highlight our Christmas season! And hope I have time to write some more blog posts in the future!!

It's Santa Grant!

And Santa's Helper!

Opening presents

Grant got an helicopter and a fireman suit!

Holly is looking pretty serious!

Grant got an workbench from Santa!

Holly is more excited about Marco's cat toy present.

Yum! I like to eat presents!

Enjoying all of our new toys!
