2013 In Review

Highlights of 2013

  • J getting a new car!  Now we can all comfortably ride together in either of our cars!
  • New windows for the house!  Our house is so much warmer/cooler and quieter.
  • Our vacation to Glacier National Park with Grammie and Grampie
  • LSK learning how to use our fancy camera and taking much-improved photos of our family!
  • LSK getting involved in a Community Band - it is so much fun to play again
  • LWK's 2nd Birthday
  • LWK REALLY talking now - full sentences/requests/demands, pleases and thank yous and our favorite, "I love you!"
  • LWK being able to recognize all the letters (upper and lower case), colors and numbers.  He can even write the L and the U of his name!
  • LWK singing - lots!
  • No food allergies for LWK (just environmental ones like all Seattleites, boo)
  • LWK's love of trains and Legos
  • Mommy and LWK swim lessons
  • LWK's first concert - Caspar Babypants
  • Celebrating Grandma and Grandpa's 40th Wedding Anniversary
  • A new bed for J and me (and that 2.5 year old 2am visitor that we often have).  How did we survive without a king sized bed for so long???
  • Watching LWK learn about the world, love his friends and family and grow up to be such a sweet boy.  We are so blessed with a happy and healthy kiddo!

Lowlights of 2013

  • LSK having pneumonia in June (for concert season no less!!!)

What we are looking forward to in 2014

  • No one getting pneumonia...
  • A Roadtrip Vacation - maybe Vancouver Island?
  • Potty Training (okay I'm not looking forward to the training, but the results)
  • The Olympics!
  • Getting better at my camera- I have made huge improvements in 2013 but  I have a long way to go!
  • Time together as a family, it is never boring with LWK around!

Probably one of my favorite photos of the year (post photography class).
It just sums up LWK's wonderment with the world around him this year!
