Goodbye 2013, Hello 2014!

Hello 2014!!! New Years Eve was great. Gennavieve, Andrew and myself spent the evening doing fireworks and wondering where in the heck 2013 went. My family does New Years BIG! I really missed being home and we aren't planning on missing it next year. 

 Thanks to Handy Andy's skills at "selfies" we were able to get a fun snapshot of the three us of us. Happy New Year!

We all had our favorite type of firework. Gennavieve stuck to the SPARKLERS but was still pretty unsure why I was letting her play with fire. No words needed. The picture says it all. 

It didn't take her long to get the hang of it and soon enough it looked more like this. Definitely fun, still a little confused.

Andrews favorite by far was the Roman Candles. He had way too much fun trying to hit the fire hydrant and other things that I will not mention... ;)

My favorite of the fire works were the SMOKE BALLS!! I drew some stuff in the snow which I thought was awesome!!

And another one...

As you can see, we had a BLAST! 

It's tradition for us to come up with New Years resolutions. You always have the typical lose weight, eat healthier etc etc. This year, mine is to blog. Document all the wonderful things we do and have a record to look back on. Wish me luck! Happy New Year! May it be the best one yet!

2013 in Review

2013 was one heck of a year! I've learned so much and look forward to applying my new found knowledge in 2014. I moved, twice. Continued Gennavieve's adoption process; Single Momin' it! Gained not one, not two, but THREE baby cousins (baby Mike and twins Kianalei & Kalena). Watched my youngest brother wrestle for the first time in too long. Here is a few pics taken during 2013. Enjoy.

                                               July 4th in our new apartment!
                                                    This girl is such a diva
I met this guy, Andrew! A little about him, he is 11 months older than me, works as a Helicopter Mechanic and has two cats. He enjoys: motorcycles (actually, anything with an engine), guns, building things and TOOLS! We met in June 13' and had a great several months. We spent some time in Bear Lake, Houston and Ely, NV. Looking forward to what 2014 has in store. 
The zoo!! We spent several hot summer days here on our zoo pass! G is finally old enough to enjoy it. Although she seemed to be most amused by the size of the elephant poop than anything else. :/ We LOVE Hogle Zoo!!
My favorite thing about this whole year is that I made it home for Christmas for the first time in several years. Man it felt good to be home! I miss my family and can't wait to go back. 

                              Several more pictures to come once I get them downloaded!! :)
