Happy New Year!
Isaac (4yrs 10m), Penny(11m), and Rose (3yrs)
Highlights of 2014:
-Baby #3 was born at the end of January - Penelope Joanne Black, born 3 weeks early, weighed 5lbs, 3.8oz, and 18.5in tall. Such a little peanut!
-Isaac turned 4 in February!
-Grandma Deb, Grandma Lucy, and Grandma Teresa all got to come and visit us in Hawaii!!
-Matt and I went to Maui (with Penny in tow since she was only a few weeks old at the time) to see a good friend get married in March, and I also got to meet up with some family friends that I haven't seen since I was 13 (Hello Kittners!)!!
-End of September/beginning of October we took our three kids on a huge trip; we went to California for a week and half, which we visited family, friends, and went to Disneyland, then went to Pennsylvania for another week and a half to visit even more friends and family. It was long and tiring at times, but so worth it!
-Had our first child admitted overnight to a hospital -- Rose, while at Disneyland, got herself severely dehydrated.
-Rose turned 3 in December!
It's crazy looking back at pictures from throughout the year and seeing how much each child has changed. It doesn't seem like it most of the time, because we are with them all day, every day, but there is definitely growing happening!
This upcoming year should be pretty relaxed, but one new thing will be happening: Isaac will be starting Kindergarten in the fall! I hope he loves it, and I hope he does well.
Around the Oct/Nov timeframe (which is still a LONG ways away) we should be finding out where we are going next after this Hawaii tour is over. I'm excited to see if we're going someplace new or going back to where we've already been. One thing's for certain, we should be back on the mainland which means we'll be closer to family again!
It also looks like some good friends of ours might be PCSing back to Hawaii in the middle of this year, so that will be awesome to be able to see them more often again, but then we'll be leaving less then a year later. Hopefully our paths will cross again and again though :)
That's all for now!
