Rose turns 3
-EVERY POST in this blog is all about Rose, because while we share our memories with family and friends, it is intended for Rose to have as kind of a digital scrapbook of her childhood. The 3 year old Rose is like a little person with her own mind and ideas. She is fun to play with and has a very creative imagination. She prefers to be active, but has her favorite cartoons and books when she needs to slow down a bit. Nothing makes her happier than playing with her babies and nothing makes her angrier than when it is time to wash her hair. She loves fruit and donuts. Mommy and daddy love that she still takes a nap!
It is also thanks to Rose that we added Meow to our home...
Heather's new job
-After 4 wonderful years working as a Service Coordinator for Early Intervention, Heather accepted a new position at the same company, and is now a Crisis Interventionist. The change was precipitated by a need to be home with Rose during the mornings to take her to speech therapy. The change has been positive in lots of ways including more time with Rose and a pay raise :)
Justin's Pole Barn
-After 6 long years of living in our home, Justin got the one thing he wanted from day 1...a larger garage.
-Although I wouldn't have expected us to love the beach like we do, we certainly were a beach family this year with an overnight trip to Cape May, day trips to Sea Isle and Avon-by-the-Sea, and a week at Lewes.
2 Trips to Knobels
-Rose LOVES rides. We weren't sure after an early season trip to Knobels if we would make it again, but we made it (on their very last day)
Cousin Bruce III is born
-This was probably the happiest moment for Rose who adores her baby cousin. She is very lucky that they live close and has gotten to see a lot of Bruce since he was born. There is nothing Rose enjoys more than helping to change his diaper by handing over wipes and a clean diaper!
New Car (sort of...)
-Heather got caught in the 'great hail storm' and her beloved red Jeep was totaled :( We upgraded to a larger Jeep and although Heather misses her smaller Jeep, all the extra room has worked out really well!
Master Bedroom and Bathroom
-Progress has been made in the master bedroom and bathroom. The bathroom is done and the bedroom, not so much ;) Maybe by next year's review!
-After 5 years of the dreaded 'neutral' color, Heather picked a color and Justin painted it for her birthday present (because Justin REALLY hates painting!).
2014 was packed FULL for us :) Here's hoping 2015 is wonderful for everyone!!!
