Almost 2015!

Really, it's almost 2015 already?

This last year and especially this last month have FLOWN by. 

Last month we hit the two year mark for Jared being back in the military, he got a promotion in September (while he was broken and on convalescence leave), we moved (again) in October, we took our first family vacation back in May, we got a surprise visit in January from Amber and Tucker and so much more. 

While I have pictures from the entire year, I'll only bore you with photos from this last month and a half.

We are impatient. We opened our Christmas presents yesterday and it was so worth it. Emma has been playing her new piano keyboard every chance she gets.

If you decided to follow us on Instagram, you'll get to see pictures all month long, not just whenever I remember to write a blog post. 

We hope you all have a fantastic holiday season!
