2015 was a great year. No heartaches, no drama, no anything but laughs, smiles and memories.
Carlos turned 2 and had a huge Dinosaur party
I turned the “big” 30 and won a game of Chess against the all mighty brain
I got my other thigh tattoo’d in honor of my Papa
We went to California Academy of Sciences & Nina Val was our tour guide around San Francisco
Emery saw her first street performers and I wish I would have caught her reaction when the “statue” started talking to her
The same week we went to The California State Train Museum (Carlos’ first time)
For Easter I failed to spiral curl Emery’s hair and tuned into dreads. The day was made memorable by Emery taking it upon herself to guide Carlos to each hidden Easter egg.
Met up with some friends I never see!
Emery started Gymnastics
I lost 20 lbs!!! & re gained it back before summer ended … but now I know I can do it, its a matter of keeping it off
(no real photo but it happened)
Victor Graduated with a B.A in May (woo hoo!)
The end of May Emery had a surprise birthday party at Disneyland
June my Emery baby turned 5!!!
She was old enough to get her ears pierced
We went on a few beach trips
Victor & I went whale watching for our 6th wedding anniversary (& I got totally sick)
Victor & I saw Morrissey!
Emery started school!!! ( & is killing it!!)
*& we through her a first day of school party
Victor started Middle School
Carlos is potty trained!!!
(but I have to take him to the bathroom every 5 minutes until he can do it himself 😐 )
We started our own YouTube channel, Taking California
We went to Disneyland for Halloween (Thank you Aunty Christina for making our dreams come true and giving us two tickets and fun cash!!)
Carlos is FINALLY (and I can not stress that enough) weaned!! And that makes me happy & very sad.
Carlos went to the snow for the first time at Sequoia National Park
& a few weeks later we went back to take our yearly family photo
Celebrated Thanksgiving at Great Grandma & Papa’s house
(blessed to have those two in our lives)
Another Christmas Eve Tradition at the Great Grandparents
Emery learned to ride her bike with no training wheels!!
December Dad turned another year older
My favorite part of writing the Year in Review is seeing all the fun and special memories we have made. It’s easy to get caught up in life and the ups and downs of daily things, but to look back at all the smiling faces with in the year makes me happy to be part of all the chaos.
From our family to yours, have a happy, healthy & safe New Year!
