2016 favorites

2016 has absolutely flown by, and what a year it has been!  We have so much to celebrate as a family this year – most importantly, the addition of our Sabrina.  I’m not sure how 2017 will top that, but I’m ready to buckle in and see!  I’m linking up with Andrea and Erika to share my favorite moments of 2016.


Corinne took swim lessons again…

and had fun romping around in the snow with daddy!


we attempted to warm up the month with lots of Valentine’s fun!



we celebrated Corinne’s 3rd birthday with a PJ Masks party!

and had so much fun on a beautiful, sunny Easter Sunday


Brian and I took a little trip to NYC with the Patterson’s.  Yay, adult time!


We had family pictures taken on Ball State campus to celebrate our growing family

and escaped town to Hilton Head Island for the second year in a row!


Corinne had her first dance recital!

and we found out baby #2 was a SISTER!


We had the best July 4th weekend ever, complete with a wedding, lake time, and Finding Dory.


Corinne started soccer (go team Twisters!)

and we took a trip to the State Fair.


we spent a relaxing Labor Day weekend on Lake Cordry

and I had a baby sprinkle brunch with my dear friends!


baby Sabrina arrived on October 23, and our year was made!

and Corinne had the time of her life on Halloween 🙂


two words – baby. snuggles.  We spent the month getting to know our newest girl, and loving every minute of it.


So much Christmas, so little time!  We hit all our favorite traditions – Jolly Days @ the Children’s Museum, baking cookies, Christmas movies, and lots of family time!

What a whirlwind!  I can’t wait to see what 2017 holds for us.  Happy New Year, friends!
