Here is our last family photo of 2013! I can quite confidently say that 2013 was our best year yet. I can’t imagine what 2014 could possibly have in store but we are ready and excited! Happy New Year!

Here are some of our 2013 highlights:

  • Zach’s new job
  • Sage’s first birthday & birthday party
  • Sage’s first steps
  • Taylor is halfway finished with Grad School (and with all A’s!)
  • Sage’s first day of school
  • Zach’s band, The Outset, released their first CD
  • Watching Sage’s vocabulary explode & watching her explore the world and learn new things

I am so glad I kept up with this blog all year so we can remember all the wonderful days we had together, but I would be lying if I said I wasn’t kind of ready to be done blogging every day :). Thanks for following along!

Tonight was our very last family dinner date of 2013! Tomorrow night Zach and I are going to OKC to ring in the new year while Sage has a fun sleepover with Grams! Big girl Sage was more interested in eating (spilling) my soup than eating her own dinner, which is fine by me when you look that cute eating!

Sage had a sleepover at Grams house last night, and didn’t wake up until 10:30 this morning! We had a pretty lazy day after that and topped it off with a our first big girl bath (first time at home not using the baby tub, sniff sniff) with some new tub toys from Santa!

Tonight we hosted a party for my Grad School cohort and it was lots of fun! Kristi made up a shot, the “Dr. Cherry” in honor of a very peculiar professor we all had last semester (and again next semester)! It was a super fun night and the perfect way to unwind after the crazy semester we all endured together!

This afternoon we were finally ready to venture out of the house after all our holiday festivities (and the weather was crazy nice today) so we hit the park and went for smoothies after “swingin” and “sliding” to our hearts content.

MERRY CHRISTMAS! We had the most fun ever today with this sweet sweet girl! Santa must have put Sage on the EXTRA nice list because she got some of the coolest toys ever! She loved her play kitchen & the bongos from Daddy! We got to spend all day with the people we love and I declare this the BEST. CHRISTMAS. EVER.
