2017, you were too good to our little family. We started out the year in Disney World after celebrating a Clemson National Championship.
This big boy rode his first roller coaster.
A couple weeks after coming home, we sold our first house.
And were blessed to purchase our new home with plenty of space for our growing family.
Speaking of our growing family...
We found out in January that baby brother would be joining our family in the Fall.
We celebrated Ryder turning 2.
And Finn finished his very first year of preschool.
We celebrated 10 years of marriage in May.
And made ourselves right at home at our new neighborhood pool over the summer.
Our biggest boy started 3-day preschool at a new school this Fall.
And turned 4 in September.
At 9:24 on 9.24 we welcomed our third baby boy to our family when Jude was born.
At a month old, we took our first family day trip to dive right into Fall.
We got to experience Halloween in our new neighborhood.
And I started doing life out and about as a mom of three.
Finn's school had a Thanksgiving party.
And we took a day trip to Clemson.
We picked out this baby boy's first Christmas tree.
And saw the man in red.
Clemson won the ACC Championship and finished the season at number 1!
We got our first snowstorm in our new house.
We celebrated Christmas with family in South Carolina.
And spent Christmas at home as my family came to join us.
2017, you were oh so sweet and we were blessed far beyond what we deserve. Yes, we had our share of challenges and refining moments- but it's the sweet, everyday moments that stand out the most. Our house is loud and messier than I'd prefer but I wouldn't change a thing. I feel like I spent the better part of 2017 moving, unpacking, setting up a new house and learning a new town all while being massively pregnant chasing after two toddlers. I am most looking forward to diving into a new year in our new home as a new family of five. So cheers to 2018, we are ready for you.
And another Clemson National Championship would be nice too.
