Hello 2015

Curt and I had such a fun New Year's Eve this year. We both worked but were done mid afternoon. We headed to Chris and Nena's house (a couple we met at the Sunday School class we are attending) for dinner and games! Around 11 we headed downtown to watch a ball drop. Knoxville has a ball that actually drops! It wasn't huge, but it was still a ball drop! And there were fireworks! It was a great way to welcome 2015! 2014 was a busy year for us and we look forward to what God has in store for us in 2015! 

Here is a quick recap of 2014

1) Curt graduated from Pharmacy School
2) Curt was hired as a pharmacist at Wal-Mart
3) We moved to Knoxville
2) We went to the beach with my family
3) I was hired at an infusion center
4) We bought our first house
5) We went to the mountains with Curt's family
6) I got rear-ended on the interstate and our car was totaled
7) We were forced to get another car...always stressful.
8) We renovated our house for 4 months
9) We finally moved into our house in November, it really was an incredible feeling!
10) We were able to celebrate the holidays with both of our families!!!

Ok I was stretching for that 10th one because we will do that every year but 10 is better than 9 :)

Back to New Year's Eve...

Merry Christmas :)

For us Christmas this year pretty much started the Saturday before and continued til the Saturday after with lots of stuff going on almost everyday! The Saturday before started with Debbie's side and a girls brunch. On Sunday was Mike's side for Christmas. Monday was Curt's immediate family. Tuesday was my last day of work. Wednesday, Christmas Eve, we drove to Cape and went to the Christmas Eve service with my mom's family. Christmas was spent at my Grandma's..all day...and it was great! Friday was my immediate family's Christmas. And Saturday was my dad's side for Christmas. Woah. I am now a little tired just thinking about all of that, haha! But Curt and I loved every second of it!

Here is our Christmas in pictures

Some favorite cousin's on Curt's cousin..Mary Kate and Anna

Anna and I had each others name!

I think Andrew loved his jersey :)

Mollie, Caroline, and me....Mollie loves holding her some Caroline!

Curt was clearly excited about his Christmas gift

Getting really excited to see what it is..we had to go out to the garage!

And there we have it...they even included me :)

Christmas at my Grandma's and Grandpa's

Brynn and her tea set

And then Brynn's favorite thing to do...go to Claire's and pick out one thing...I've never seen her contemplate  a decision so much

We had an intense game of the Farmer's game....yes Curt got upset because he did not win :)

And of course since we were in Cape for some of the Christmas tournament we had to go. Took me back to my high school days, ha!
It was an absolutely wonderful Christmas season! God has truly blessed us with such wonderful families.
