It was the year of superheroes :)
We settled into our heaven sent rental in Gilbert, AZ as a family of five!
It was so fun decorating a GIRL room!
Spencer went to visit his mom over Labor Day weekend and my mom made a last minute trip to come visit the same weekend during my birthday.
We visited James, Maddie and Calvin in Oceanside for another quick weekend trip!
We went to Utah over our October break to walk the ALS Walk for the Cure with Spencer's family.
We did all of the Halloween things!
We went to Utah AGAIN for Thanksgiving. We are so grateful for the time we have with Spencer's mom. In October of 2016 when she was diagnosed with ALS, they gave her less than a year to live and she is still with us now, over a year after her diagnosis.
Jack turned six! He got to celebrate in Utah and Arizona! We went to Dinosaur Park in Ogden for his birthday and he loved it!
We had a wonderful and green Christmas at home in Arizona.
My family came to visit after Christmas and we went to the Arizona bowl in Tuscon to cheer on the Aggies!
This is obviously a post of all of our "highs" this year and not our lows, but I love writing these years in review because it helps me remember how blessed we've been and all that God has done for us. Our days are often repetitive, demanding, and exhausting with small kids and an infant and I won't tell you how many times I daydream about escaping real life and going on vacation but I'm sure grateful for this life I've been given and the people I get to share it with :)
Bring it on, 2018!
