Can’t believe our sweet little girl is already three years old (seriously, I want to cry – probably also the pregnancy hormones!). For her birthday we stuck with our favorite traditions… a gold number balloon, donuts for breakfast, doing a fun activity for a large chunk of the day (the beach this time!), go out to lunch (Em’s favorite – Blaze Pizza), opened presents which included a Jessie Doll, beach chair and Daniel Tiger pjs. We ended the day by heading to church (which she also loves), Chick-fil-a for dinner and the beach for ice cream right before bed! Overall I think she had a great day, and we’re so lucky to be her parents! We love you little Em!
We decided to celebrate Em’s 3rd Birthday party with family and friends over Memorial Day weekend since extra family was in town. Since Em LOVES unicorns, we did a unicorn themed party. Grammy made Em a special cake, we had a piñata, and all her favorite friends came. She still talks about her unicorn party today.
How is it already December already? It seems like we all were just making our new years resolutions and our little baby was still immobile! 2015 was pretty great for us, we made it a priority to create family time, no matter where we were – at home, at the park, or at the beach. Here’s what we’ve been up to…
Drew – He’d describe his year filled with intense, fast paced projects at Milwaukee Tool and lots of homework while he works on getting his masters at Marquette. He also traveled to China twice this year, but is always glad to come home!
Vanessa – Focused on improving her photography this year and launched her own photography business during the summer. She’s also works part-time as a graphic designer at an e-commerce company.
Emerald – She learned to eat real food, crawl, walk, talk and well has turned into a little human and is no longer quite a baby. She keeps us on our toes, but are so thankful for how much joy and laughter and craziness she brings to our home. Some of her favorite things this year were: the beach, walks, swings, splashing water, bubble guppies and trying to take ornaments off the tree.
We can’t wait to see what 2016 brings!
