Farewell, 2015!

Happy New Year's Eve!  We have been blessed beyond measure with such an amazing year that I felt like it was only right to go back and take a look at what made it so fabulous!

We enjoyed some fun in the tub!
Sawyer got potty trained in 3 days!
 We had some fun at Grandpa Larry's farm
We went on some family hikes 
Took some pit stops
I traveled to NYC with my mom to visit my brother
 Saw a taping of the Chew while we were there

 Ate tons of yummy food

Tice and I traveled to Chicago in March over St. Patrick's Day weekend and got to cross an item off of my bucket list!
Enjoyed dinner at one of our favorite restaurants, RPM Italian while we were there

Had some pictures taken of the kids

Tice attended a wedding for a dear friend in Mexico but I decided to stay behind with the kids...
 and visit an old friend and her family in Pueblo
 We ate lots of Mexican food throughout the year
 We headed to Boulder for Tice's work and enjoyed hanging out on Pearl Street

We celebrated Kinley's first Easter
by dying Easter eggs, 
getting Easter baskets,
and participating in an Easter egg hunt at the club!
We celebrated Mother's Day
 Enjoyed spending time with family
 We enjoyed some kid free time with a trip to Vegas with great friends

 Sawyer had his first dentist appointment
 Tice and I enjoyed some dates on the golf course, including a couple tournament we took 3rd place in!

I got stung by a bee for the first time in 25 years and my hand swelled up... 
 We enjoyed popsicles
We celebrated the Fourth of July with friends and fireworks

Celebrated Sawyer's 3rd Birthday

Tice and I enjoyed a quick trip to Telluride for our anniversary
Enjoyed tasty summer time foods, especially ribs!
Tice quit his job and right after we traveled to Portland to spend time with friends
Go wine tasting and 
Dip our toes in the water at the beach
Then came home and celebrated Kinley's 1st Birthday

Tice started his own financial advisory company (so, so proud of him!)
 I enjoyed a getaway to Aspen with a girlfriend where we enjoyed lots of shopping, food, and cocktails

Took another trip to Telluride with the family and enjoyed hanging out at the Peaks Resort
Soaked up the last dog days of summer
 Laughed at ourselves sometimes
 Got all dressed up and attended some fun events for good causes
Drove to Lincoln, NE to attend Tice's family reunion

Attended some CU football games and met John Elway at one!
Enjoyed the pumpkin patch

 Got all dressed up for Halloween as a little piggy and Mater the tow truck from the movie Cars (that costume took mommy and Grandma Tammy hours!)

Celebrated my birthday

 Hosted our first Thanksgiving
 Played in the snow
 Met Santa at the club's annual Santa brunch and were happy about it...
 or really, really mad!
 Had family pictures taken for our Christmas cards....twice :)

All in all a wonderful year and I can't help but look back on it with the biggest smile!  We were so incredibly blessed and I can't wait to see what 2016 has in store for us!
