It's Been Real 2013...

Tuesday, December 31, 2013

I feel like we were just doing this whole New Year's thing to ring in 2013 a very short while ago, and now here it is, time for 2014 in less than an hour now. Time sure does fly by, but I'm trying to enjoy every second of it as much as I can. I saw a few other blogs I follow doing a year in review through pictures, so thought it'd be a fun way to document just how great God really is and how blessed we have been this year. I'll hate to see it come to a close, but I welcome 2014 and all it has to offer with open arms.

This may just be my favorite picture of her ever!

This was her very first time meeting one of our Goddaughters at UK's cheer clinic. She was fascinated with everything going on that day.  It was also my first time taking a trip out of town with her solo.

 


Started eating something besides breastmilk at six months exactly!

Made lots of church trips with her mama.

 

I miss these fat little cheeks so much. I feel like she didn't hardly have them anytime. 

 
Caroline's baptism was one of my favorite memories from this past year. It was such a special service on Palm Sunday anyway and then to have my sister sing and assist with part of the baptism made it even more special 






A very fun Easter was had by all.

Took our first longer road trip to North Carolina to watch our middle Goddaughter graduate.



Caroline's first time burying her little toes in the sand in Orange Beach, Alabama. Part of our first official family vacation to Alabama and New Orleans!


She perfected mean muggin' all day long.

 
           Crawled some at 9 months.... And finally walked at 11 months, on Independence Day
 
Celebrated the big ONE with her Busy Bee Birthday party.


Roared her way through the streets for her first time trick-or-treating.

 
Spent a few days roaming the streets of Savannah; her first of many trips to come there.

 
Bombed many Christmas photo attempts.
 


Spent lots of fun times with her favorite cousins!




And showed us what the good life really is all about. We are so blessed to have the people in our life that we do. Both blood relation and God-given 'adopted family".  A very, very Happy New Year to everyone! Don't forget to eat your pork, greens and black eyed peas tomorrow!
