Highlights of 2016

It's New Years Eve and what a better way to spend the morning than by reflecting on the top 5 "Highlights" of this year!
 This is a link up with Daisy Designs so be sure to check out her original post to see more highlights!!

 First!! The BIGGEST highlight of the year was the birth of our daughter, Kennedy!! She was born June 13th at 3:21am!  Weighing 7lbs 4oz and measuring 20 1/2 inches!! We are blessed to be her parents each and every day!

A second big highlight this year is that we upgraded my husband's truck - we found the prefect truck in the color that he actually wanted! He needs his truck for work, but it also needed to be a family truck that would haul things!  I don't really have a picture of it to add, but it's been the perfect fit for our family!!

We have been doing a lot of family stuff!  This fall we bought two quads so that we can go out to the desert to go riding.  It has been so awesome!! We've made two family trips out to the desert so far this year and my husband has been able to take the quads out riding with some friends a few times, too!  We also went camping with Kennedy for the first time (she was 5 months old!).

I finished out the year (well.. almost! Kennedy was born a week and a half before the end of the school year) teaching TK and then moved up to Kindergarten! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this age and am SO excited to be a part of kindergarten again!! It's been years since I've taught kindergarten, but it is truly my favorite age!!

We celebrated, visited, enjoyed, and relaxed A LOT with our family and friends!! Having our baby, it just has been so wonderful to visit with everyone and enjoy each others company!

What are your highlights from 2016??


  1. Such a gorgeous baby girl. Congratulations!
