2016 in review

January: I turned 27, Millie turned 4, busy season began, Sarah left on her mission and we got to attend her farewell. I read "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up" and went on an organizational tirade.

February: Max made us laugh with his mischievous ways, Millie began soccer team, I got to hear my mom speak at her RS Super Saturday, Tyler worked hard, and we got to see Lindsay and Kenny as they house-hunted here!

March: Huge YW fundraiser for me, I won tickets to the rodeo for Tyler and I, the kids and I went to the beach with friends, we enjoyed cousin time over spring break and went to the rodeo again, finally drove out to see the bluebonnets, lots of soccer for Millie. Tyler officially finished busy season. Oh and we found out I was pregnant!

April: I was super sick and exhausted so this month was a bit of a blur for me. Millie finished the soccer season. We went to the Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival with Grammy and enjoyed a few days with Garrett and Mitchell in Houston.

May: I was released from YW, We got to meet baby Wes, Tyler turned 29, first swim of the year, fun Memorial Day at the Westons, Millie finished preschool.

June: We swam a lot (except for Max, who avoided getting in the water at all costs), we re-vamped our daily routine, had a fun few days with cousins (Bakers back from Cambodia), and then went to California & DISNEYLAND!

July: We celebrated Mitchell and Shayna's wedding, found out we were having a BOY, enjoyed time with AJ, Max got rid of the binky and moved to a big boy bed, had fun with Andersen cousins (Andersens visiting from Germany), I started using a grocery pickup service. Life-changing.

August: Lots more fun with extended family on both sides, lots of swimming and rainy days, Tyler and I celebrated our 7th anniversary, and the kids got to go with Tyler to bring-your-kids-to-work day.

September: Tyler went to Louisiana to help clean up after the flood, we had family pictures taken, the kids and I went to Beaumont and finally got to meet Becca, Millie participated in her first primary program, we officially began preschool at home, Tyler went to a BYU football game in D.C.,  and Millie started taking gymnastics and swimming lessons.

October: The kids came with me to a couple of my doctor's appointments, we endured a super hot "fall," got ready for baby to come, and had a fun Halloween.

November: We did lots of baby prep, voted, and enjoyed going on some fun last outings together as a family of 4. Harvey was born and we had a relaxing Thanksgiving.

December: One of our most low-key Decembers to date, thanks to having a newborn. We visited Santa and spent time with family on both sides. Tyler got to go to the bowl game in San Diego and we enjoyed a great Christmas.

This has been the slowest and fastest year ever. I love looking back and thinking about how things have changed, how we have changed. We are excited for 2017!
