Here’s a quick recap of our year:
January- The beginning of the year marked the end of maternity leave. Alyssa was sad to leave the kiddos for her first drill, but lucky that Mr. Mom, a.k.a. Haus is the best daddy ever!
February- We enjoyed lots of visits from old Army friends this month.
March- Traveling month. Alyssa and the kiddos went to Idaho for a few days, Haus headed to San Jose for a project for a few days.
April- We decided to start hosting a Bible study through our church this month. Three studies later we are immensely blessed by a generous, supportive group of friends that meet with us on a weekly basis.
May- Papa and Nana came to visit this month.
June- Haus and Alyssa celebrated their 11th Wedding Anniversary!
July- Camping without sleeping on the ground, HURRAH!! Alyssa found an old 1980s style pop-up camper on Craigslist and Haus fixed it up for its inaugural trip to visit friends from college. Can’t wait to take it out a ton next year.
August- Second year of homeschooling begins. Turns out this homeschooling gig is pretty cool.
September- Vaca! Took our first family vacation to southern California. Disneyland, Legoland, Seaworld. So much fun!
October- Baby Girl turned 1! We decided her nickname on the blog will be L.D. Ask us in person and we’ll let you in on the meaning behind the initials.
November- First Colorado Thanksgiving. Alyssa’s family came here for turkey and taters.
December- Our first 9-1-1 call and ambulance ride started out this month! Thank goodness our sweet girl is doing great now.
Not as tumultuous as last year’s list. We are definitely so thankful that this year we were able to spend more time together and less time traveling. Big changes coming up next year which we will post about soon!
Merry Christmas and blessings to your family this new year!
