2013: Year in Review!!!

...2013 has been a pretty great year! It's crazy to go back and see how much our family has changed in the past year. Here's a look back in pictures...

January 2013
AR took her first airplane ride to visit Nana in Florida!

February 2013
H turned 9 and we all celebrated at her gymnastics party!

March 2013
I joined the Dirty Thirty Club with lots of love and excitement from all my friends and family.

April 2013
AR won $100 in a Diaper Derby!

May 2013
My sweet girl celebrated her first birthday pink lemonade style!

June 2013
Summer officially arrived. We spent lots of time at the spray pad, swimming, drinking out of the hose, and anything else that kept us cool from the hot Missouri weather.

July 2013
We took family vacay to Outer Banks, NC. It was AR's first time on the beach and in the ocean. Of course, my little water baby LOVED it!

August 2013
AR went to her first, very hot Cardinals game.

September 2013
Of course we had to celebrate the first day of Autumn! We went apple picking and she wanted to eat every apple she picked right way.

October 2013
Halloween time! AR's costume this year was a cowgirl. The Cardinals also went to the playoffs and AR went to her first World Series game outside the womb. Matt and I also celebrated 5 years of wedded bliss. 

November 2013
AR had her first sleepover at the farm and it was the first time I'd been there in a couple years. Other highlights from November include Toddler Thanksgiving, Turkey Trot and I cooked a turkey for the first time!

December 2013
This month brought on Santa, cookies, Christmas trees, and more holiday celebrations. AR and I became Santa stalkers, we got to see all of our family, and we enjoyed the first snow of the year.

Can't wait to see what 2014 holds for us. Have a great New Year's celebration! We'll be celebrating with our hog jowl and black eyed peas tomorrow. What was your favorite memory of 2013???
