Wow! What an amazing year we have had in 2012. From a new niece and nephew being born, to my little sis getting engaged, our family continues to grow. Not to mention, how much our own two kids are growing. Parker and Siena continue to grow and learn each day. Here are some photos of them in the last couple of years.
Parker: 3 weeks old, Siena: 1 1/2 years old
Siena: 3 years old, Parker: 1 year old
Parker: 2 1/2 years old, Siena: 4 years old
It amazes me how fast they truly grow. Siena is spelling and reading small words, singing and dancing, and making crafts like her life depends on it. Parker is counting 1-10ish, shooting a basketball with precision, and expanding his vocabulary daily. Love them so much.
Meanwhile, Jason and I continue to do well also. We are going on almost 7 wonderful years of marriage. I am still teaching fifth grade and loving it. This month I am beginning to teach a science methods course at Pacific University to graduate students, which I am very excited about. Jason continues to work as a pipe fitter and enjoying that as well. He continues to improve our house with projects here and there, from a deck out back to expanding the fence along the side of the house, he keeps busy. We recently celebrated my 30th birthday with a 1920s Murder Mystery Party which was so much fun!
So thankful for all our friends and family in our lives. Here's to 2013, may we experience many more amazing memories.
