It seems like I was writing about 2014 just the other day. 2015 was a fun one filled with special moments and memories that we will treasure forever! Here are just a few of our favourites (and not so favourite if I'm being totally honest) moments this year.
We started 2015 in Trinidad where we soaked up the sun, sea and sand before heading back to the coldest.winter.ever.
We also celebrated my birthday with my parents and a stomach bug this year :-(
I lost a very special person in February suddenly and sadly but I'm so sure she is very happy where she is. We also potty trained in February… fun times….
In March we went to Deerhurst where I almost broke my behind.
But got up in time to become a Canadian citizen.
In April, this cutie turned six and we celebrated with Cassia's Carnival!
Celebrating with a champagne brunch in May for Mother's Day and D's birthday!
My sweet girl graduated kindergarten at her Montessori in June.
And us girls headed to NYC for a week to kick off summer!
We came back to Canada in July to spend it with my brother and his family and help them settle in for the year here. It has been such a blessing and a joy having my family so close to us… well they live an hour away but we see each other almost every weekend and all holidays! And the cousins have become best friends, siblings and spouses (don't ask)
We also celebrated A's Sweet Sunshine Birthday
And spent loads of time in Jenn's pool
In August, we did a double Disney. First the World
Then the Dream (a Disney Cruise). One of my best vacations ever.
In September, it all began again… but this time with a first grader in a whole new 'big' school. Skating, gymnastics (x2), Kindermusik (x2), swimming and violin started again too.
In October, my other brother visited with his family for two weeks and we had lots of folks over for Thanksgiving! We also celebrated Halloween with Batgirl and a Bumblebee.
November was one to remember. The very first day of the month we saw and fell in love with a house. We bought that house and then staged and sold ours on the very first showing.
Our new home (lifted off a website)
And our current/old home
Sadly, in November I also lost my uncle after he suffered for a very long time from brain cancer. Another beautiful soul gone too soon.
And then December, we had a very Merry Christmas with my parents, brother, sister in law and nephew spending lots of the holiday with us.
What a year! So much to be thankful for. What I'm most grateful for though are the people. My family, my friends, their health and happiness are most important to me and I pray that 2016 is a wonderful one for us all!
