2015 A Year in Review

Wow. 2015 has come and gone so quickly. It's hard to believe that at the beginning of the year only our closest friends and family knew I was pregnant and now we have a happy, healthy 5 month old girl. 2015 was definitely an amazing year for my little family. It had it's ups and downs, but man, the ups outweighed the downs! Now let's take a look back at what happened in 2015...


We rung in the New Year with our best friends. JP and I ran the Aramco Houston Half Marathon. We announced to everyone that we were expecting!


I started my {bi}weekly bump dates. I severely sprained my ankle while running. 5th annual Disney World Girls trip. I walked the Frozen 5K and part of the Princess Half Marathon. We found out we're having a baby girl!


I made it to the halfway mark in my pregnancy. Went to the Shell Houston Open. Had a relatively relaxing month.


We had our Babymoon! London. Paris. Vienna. Salzburg. My baby sister got engaged!


We went to Denver. My brother graduated from college. One of my closest friends got married. I hosted Caitlin's bachelorette party. I made it to the third trimester.


I had my 10 year high school reunion. My best friends hosted our couples baby shower. We drove to North Carolina for one of my best friend's wedding! My in laws threw me a 2nd baby shower.


We spent the 4th of July at my parents house. We had our "trial run" to the hospital when I had back labor. I gave birth to the most precious baby girl in the whole world!


Chloe had her first photo shoot. I shared Chloe's birth story. We took Chloe to College Station. Chloe turned 1 month old!


Chloe went to her Uncle Matt's football game as his tiniest fan. Chloe went to her first tailgate at her grandparents' house. We went on a road trip to Dallas. I turned 28 years old.


We went to Hogwarts for Rachael's Harry Potter birthday party. I really started running again. We went to Aggie football games. Chloe turned 3 months old, visited her first pumpkin patch and spent her first Halloween in College Station.


Chloe got her ears pierced. We road tripped to Nashville with the girls. Maggie turned 5 years old. Chloe had her first Thanksgiving with her cousin Camden and she turned 4 months old.


We went to Disney World as our Christmas present from JP!!! Emily graduated from Physical Therapy school. We went to holiday parties. Chloe visited Santa Claus, had her first Christmas and turned 5 months old...and I still haven't blogged about it oooops!

2015 was pretty amazing, but I can't wait to see what 2016 has in store. I'm excited to continue on this adventure called life with my wonderful husband, perfect baby girl, and the most amazing family and friends a girl could ask for!

Chloe's First Christmas

To say that Christmas this year was magical would be an understatement. Christmas with your child is the most amazing thing in the world. Even though Chloe is only 5 months old and she doesn't understand Christmas, the holidays with her are better than ever. I think I'm not only speaking for myself, but for my whole family.

Chloe's grandparents spoiled her rotten with adorable outfits, new toys and things to help mommy and daddy like a foam puzzle for our floor! She's also lucky enough to have 3 aunts and 3 uncles that made sure she had presents to open on Christmas day. It's safe to say that Chloe had the most presents by far!

This Christmas we were able to see everyone! We started on Christmas Eve Eve at our house. Chloe opened her presents from mommy and daddy and we opened our presents from Chloe!

She's so excited to open her presents! 

Then Christmas Eve and Christmas morning we spent at my parents. Christmas Eve festivities included chainsawing firewood, baking cookies and hot tubbing before we woke up at 6:00am Christmas morning. We still wake up bright and early like little kids. It's just tradition! Then we go to mass at 8:00am and come home for breakfast.

After clean up, we drove to College Station for Christmas with the Gouglers! We had a delicious dinner, opened presents and just spent time together. We actually stayed the whole weekend and enjoyed relaxing with the family!

Christmas 2015 was pure perfection. I couldn't imagine it any other way. We're so lucky to be able to see all of our family on Christmas day! I'm pretty sure that Christmas from here on out is going to just keep getting better! Last year, we were able to share the news of our pregnancy with family, and this year we got to share Chloe! I wonder what next Christmas has in store...
