We had a new addition to our family!
Our granddaughter Grace was born on February 5, 2014
I can’t believe my beautiful blue-eyed grand baby is almost a year old already!
We had a lot of first’s this year!
I took the very first photos of Grace. I love this one!
The first photo of Grace and Mommy, my beautiful daughter Jayme!
Grace and Daddy, my son-in-law Max!
My beautiful blonde, blue-green eyed granddaughter Paige started school for the first time this year. I can’t believe she’s in school already!
What a cutie pie!
Paige’s first symphony…love her dress!
My beautiful brown-eyed granddaughter Faith started middle school this year.
OMG…I can’t believe it! Where did the time go?
Faith got her first cell phone. I love this photo, they’re so excited and I love how Paige has her arm around Faith…that is so cute!
Faith’s first selfie. It came out great!
On September 4th, I became dairy free for the first time in my life. I’ve been gluten-free for almost 4 years now, which really hasn’t bothered me. I must admit, I really don’t have a choice…I have Celiac Disease. I’ve also been 90% grain free for almost a year now. Dairy was harder for me to give up. I love ice cream, especially rocky road, or any other chocolate ice cream with nuts.
And I love cheese!
I have to say that cheese is the thing I miss the most, and that really surprises me! I thought it would have been ice cream or sugar, but no…it’s cheese! I’m not sure if I have to be dairy free forever? Maybe when we move to a drier climate, I might be able to eat it again? Right now…living in Florida (swampville), I can’t eat it because of my sinuses.
I also cute down on sugar this year. I’m about 90% sugar-free on a good day!
Except for when I need a little more chocolate!
Like when I participated in National Novel Writing Month. This year was my first time participating, and I definitely wasn’t prepared for it. It was very intense and I needed lots of chocolate to get me through it!
#NaNoWriMo was the hardest thing I did this year! But it was worth it. I feel like I’ve grown as a writer. I’ve learned that I have to make time for writing…everyday, not just when I have time and next year…I will definitely be more prepared!
My greatest accomplishment this year was…being a #NaNoWriMo winner!
This year, Faith became a big sister for the first time!
They’re first photo shoot! How cute is this!
Baby in a basket! This is too cute!
I love this one!
OMG…look at the way they’re looking at each other!
Awww…my beautiful girls!
I love this one!
These photos came out great!
I’m so glad I have three granddaughters! After having four boys and just one girl, it’s so nice to have more girls around. Jayme and I have been out number for years! I think we need a few more though!
What I loved most about 2014, other than having a new grand baby…was all the hugs I got from my husband. He gives the best hugs ever! It’s my favorite place to be…in his arms!
So…even though 2014 was a roller coaster ride, full of ups and downs and twists and turns, it was a good year. I can never say my life is boring!
I‘m looking forward to 2015…being an even better year!!!
