Highlights from our 2013

What a year! Definitely one to be remembered and cherished!

January
After spending two weeks back home in Michigan for the holidays, it was time to get back to normal. January was fairly quiet, and I can’t say we minded a bit! Moira began taking her first steps and Liesel enjoyed playing with her new toys.

Came in like a lion, with almost a foot of snow!! Luckily it went out like a lamb and we were able to enjoy our first park days and celebrated Easter in light jackets.

April
Was a big month! With the weather finally in spring mode, we enjoyed numerous trips to the park. We found out we had to start a house hunt, unsure if we’d be renting or buying. I celebrated my last birthday in my 20s and it was the month we found out God would be adding to our cozy family of four. A new baby was to born in December!!

The house hunt continued. We enjoyed a fabulous trip to North Carolina to visit Nina and grandpa. And we told our family and friends the exciting news of baby Statler #3!

We put an offer on our first house and it was accepted!! Liesel celebrated her 3rd birthday in Michigan and we moved into Mimi and Papas house until our undetermined closing date. Phew busy month!!

The girls enjoyed their first firework show and got to stay up way past bedtime. We went on our first family trip, not to see family, to Cinncinati. And, finally, after over two weeks of homelessness, we closed on our first house!!!

In August we were busy doing house projects. The girls spent countless hours swimming in our neighborhood pool. And Liesel started her very first day of preschool!!
