2014 Starting Off Content

The new year is off to a great start! 2013 was a year of discovery of who we are as a family and where we want to be in the near future. Ray and I worked to be on the same page about money and other topics so this year we are starting to tackle tough challenges as a team. I can't tell you how awesome it feels to know that we are working toward the same goals!

We had lots of "firsts" with Parker in 2013. Being 2 years old he was able to do more and really enjoy new places and people. Now that he is 3 years old and the new year has started we are excited to see what great "firsts" we can find this year to enjoy as a family. We have a big adventure coming up in February!! Lots of exciting things to come.

Ray and I have been reading a lot. When I mean a lot I mean we didn't read at all before so anything is an improvement. We are mainly focused on books and blogs to help us with our financial health as well as living with less to have more. It's been very therapeutic and enlightening.

We have lots of changes coming in 2014 and we hope that you will help us on our jorney and support us anyway you can!

We are learning to be content with what we have and what we have it great friends and family who love and support us.

Zoo Lights & Train at Library

Having a Columbus Zoo membership is a true blessing! We are able to go to the zoo anytime and spend as little or as much time as we would like!! We love going to see the Winter Lights. It was cold but that is expected in December in Ohio. We had a great family night at the zoo!

The next day we ventured downtown to the Columbus Main Library. They had a train on display during the holidays. We took Parker last year and he loved it. He could see over the fence and this year he was able to see everything on his own! :)

Winter Break Fun: Randoms!

After Christmas we had some random fun times! Parker got a build a fort set from Uncle Jimmy. It was a big hit. The for they built was barely big enough for Parker and then he made daddy join him. And then Parker wanted to build puzzles inside the fort.

Parker took a bath in our big tub and he is just being his normal cute self! :)

We took a trip to visit Natalie, Carter and Jackson! Sarah and Barrett where there too. Hoping to get the group pics soon! :)

Parker loves baby Jackson! Can you see the love on Parker's face?? He was mad because we had to leave. :)

Who doesn't love a kid in a white undershirt?? :) Parker helped Grandma Terry pack for Hawaii!! He loved playing with the suitcase was has the spinny wheels! The day before Grandma Terry and Popa left for Hawaii we went to lunch and wished them well!!

Christmas 2013

We had a great Christmas! We spent time with family and friends and relaxed. We hosted Christmas Eve dinner at our house this year for the Gibbs family. It was my first time making a ham and I was pleasantly surprised that it turned out so well. Everyone enjoy good food and quality family time. All of the kids had a great time playing!

Opening gifts :)

Trent, Chris and Kenda

On Christmas morning Grandma Terry and Popa came over. Parker opened his gifts and then we ate all-day-long! Uncle Jimmy came over later in the day for round two of Parker opening gifts. It was a very relaxing day. We loved every stress-free minute!!
