Looking back at 2015

Every year we say it.. what a blur, where did that year go? 2015 not so much.. it has been a long year and like that last year or two quite tiring.. mostly because there is just so much happening. So many balls up in the air, we are still working on settling in. Settling in the house we've had for almost three years now, the fact that we have two children now and the fact that on and off we have had a few temporary and permanent family members in the house. Each time one arrives or leaves we have to readjust..

We started the year with a big birthday.. H Turned One and a few months later and D Turned Five 

                      

We squeezed in a little travelling.. we flew down to Florida with my parents and the boys on their first taste of Disney and the Magic Kingdom. We also spent some time at SeaWorld, Legoland and the Florida Keys 


A few months later we made a trip to New Orleans and some more New Orleans 


Our other adventures were closer to home.. a trip to the zoo, children's garden, children's museum 


And we had a few grown up adventures too :) 


We have also been busy around the house.. currently in the middle of a project as I type.. and the house is in utter chaos! But when the project will finish and we will have this wonderful new functioning space it'll all be worth it.. as were all our other projects. 

We started with the basement and created a space for the boys too..


and our formal dinning room got a a new look.. and new function 


D did a little look back of his own



Looking forward to see what 2016 has in store for us.. here is what our 2014 2013 2012 2011 looked like.
