12 {x2} in 2015

Joining in with the annual “12 in 2015” link-up {thanks, Bobbi, for hosting!} where we share a look back at the year with 12 photos. Although, I could never limit myself to just one picture per month as hard I try. So I’ll try to stick to two but this may take on a life of its own. 😉

January 2015

We took our second annual trip to Monterey to see the Aquarium for the homeschool days that included a trip to the Dennis the Menace Park.

Another graduation, this time Steve’s brother, Eric, graduated from UOP’s dental school, and was hooded by his father, also a dentist. Later in the month, we celebrated Lucie’s first birthday with a pretty pink cake.

Lots of trips to the splash pad and painting outdoors with a cleaning in the kiddie pool to follow because it was just. too. hot.

Although not much grew well this year, the sunflowers did splendidly. And there was a victory daddy-daughter dance in the rain when we received much-needed water from the sky.

October 2015

This was a busy month, and one where I worked on my photography, so lots to share! An absolute favorite every month: Artful Tot at the Crocker Art Museum. Evey got her first set of pigtails. Lucie loved the ‘punkins’! We jumped for joy when we heard of our newest niece’s arrival: Genevieve Marie. Evey can’t get enough snuggle time with her. I knitted my first set of leg warmers which my favorite ballerina loves to wear. We celebrated Halloween Frozen-style this year.

Evey celebrated her 3rd birthday with DONUTS! An early snowfall meant ‘snow fun’ the second week of November.

Who needs gifts when you can enjoy the boxes they came in? More ‘snow fun’ at the cabin to celebrate Christmas with family. And enjoying some tent reading while home sick.
