A few days late, but Happy New Year from our family to yours! I thought I’d share our most recent family photos that we took between Christmas and New Years.
We had an exciting end to 2016 and are looking forward to slowing down in 2017. Looking back at my personal goals for 2016 I met some of them and some of them are getting added to the 2017 goal list.
Here was my list from 2016…
- Read 3 Books(I’ve managed to read one in the last 15 months) SUCCESS!!
- Hang pictures on our walls SUCCESS! (Even on our new house!)
- Work at becoming fitter. I’ve gotten back into crossfit, but I need to put more motivation and effort into it. SUCCESS, even while pregnant!
- Make my 2014 and 2015 family album books. Adding it to 2017!
- Start my own photography business. Hopefully I’ll have more on this soon! Success, but I now I need to re-vamp because we’ve moved.
- Continue with my fitness and wellness journey.
- Print personal pictures to hang around the house.
- Make family photo albums.
This is a throwback picture share to February when vacationed in Hawaii with Taylor’s parents and brother. We had a great house rented on the beach of Kailua with the sand right out the back gate. Addy loved it!

It’s hard to believe that our sweet Adelaide turned 18 months this past week. Time is sure flying!
She is always on the go and loves exploring indoors and outside. Addy loves any activities that involve water. “Cooking” with water in the kitchen, playing in the yard with her kiddie pool, and bath time are some favorite water activities, she’s going to love when our neighborhood pool and splash pad open! Now that the weather is warmer she loves playing outdoors. She plays with bubbles, takes her baby for a walk, checks on the garden and plays with her balls. Addy still loves gymnastics class and now can do a forward roll by herself(which she does all around the house!) and is on the verge of jumping on her own.
She has developed a very friendly and loving personality, always smiling and waving to others. She loves to give hugs and kisses. At the grocery store she tries waving at everyone and loves getting waves and smiles back. She’s a charmer!
Addy is still working on talking. She says a small handful of words and babbles all day long, but I can only understand a few words. I’m sure shortly she’ll be talking nonstop.
Last week, Addy, my mom, Uncle Dave and I headed to Fredericksburg, TX to visit and aunt for an adventure. While traveling home I spotted the perfect place for Addy’s 18 month photos, a Bluebonnet field! Bluebonnet’s are the Texas state flower, which also helped mark our first year in the state! I hope you enjoy!
She loved taking time to smell the flowers!
We spent a fabulous week in Hawaii last week. I’m just getting pictures uploaded and can’t wait to share our trip with you. Here’s a few of my favorites so far!

Still working on the blog and picture problem! Hopefully switching web hosts soon!
