Well to say 2014 was a busy year is an incredible understatement.
We searched for and found our first home.
Cedella started at People’s Church Preschool.
Isora managed to blow us all away with her ability to fall asleep nearly anywhere.
We traveled to Chicago and to the Cottage up north.
After waiting until we were moved and settled in our new home, we got pregnant.
And lost our sweet baby 14 weeks later.
Then we had 7 Christmas celebrations and our home became the Toys R Us graveyard.
It was eventful. Such a great way to begin the year and such a shitty way to end it. So much sadness. And it seemed to be all around us. So many people sick, hurting, suffering and losing loved ones.
In effort to counteract such sadness and to welcome the hope and promise of the year ahead let’s look at some pictures. Cause pictures always make me feel better. And if you don’t already you really should follow me on Instagram @mrseyebrowz. Because I post there way more frequently than here. Also…pictures of Iz sleeping in all manner of weird spots and positions on a regular basis.
WARNING: LOOOOOOTTTTTTSSSSS of pictures ahead. Like 30. So I’m splitting this post up into two parts. Enjoy!!
JANUARY – This little spitfire sassy pants turned 4 years old and started her new school. She amazes us more every day she’s on this planet. And ::gasp:: she will be 5 in a mere 9 days. I’m gonna need some Kleenex. ASAP.
And one of the most amazing things about this year? Watching these two grow even closer together. It’s the best.
FEBRUARY – Me and my girl Kasey decided to throw an all-out Frozen birthday bash for all of our kiddos. It was AWESOME. Here’s Cedella Elsa with Kennedy Elsa and Lexi Elsa.
And dozens of our favorite friends.
Cedella had TWO hot dates for Valentine’s. Grandma Becky took her to her first Broadway theater show, Beauty and the Beast.
And Michael took her to the Daddy Daughter Dance.
We all got good gifts this Valentine’s. Check out those flowers for me and My Little Ponies for the girls.
MARCH – I can’t even. They’re holding hands. And El rocked those silly glasses for days!
Birthday celebration with Grandma Rose! How lucky is Isora to share a bday with her Great Grandma. So. Lucky.
We had a big old St. Patty’s birthday bash for all our friends at our home. It was crazy and chaotic and FUN!
And then this happened. March 22nd. We found our Dream Home. Loved it the second we walked in.
APRIL: Our dear sweet furry baby Kira had to be put to sleep. I’m choking up just looking at this picture. We miss her so much.
Yep. It snowed in April. It’s Michigan. It does that.
Cedella in that hat.
And Isora with these headphones on. Such hipster kids.
MAY: We got the keys and moved into our new home!! So we bought the biggest bed we could find at IKEA. It is Heaven.
Keys to our Kingdom.
First morning cup of coffee in our new home.
First night we slept in our new home. Once we slept here that first night, we never slept at the old house again. It was just Home.
JUNE: This one day we ran around Detroit with TeTe, hitting up Eastern Market, Belle Isle and the Heidelberg Project.
Then we watched my BABY sister graduate from High School. Yep that’s Kylara. She’s 19 now. I’m so old…
And the best part about June? Our besties moved into a new home in the same city. As if they weren’t already, these four girls are now totally inseparable.
And while she has always passed out wherever she happened to be, we started noticing Isora sleeping in the craziest places in the new house.
