Farewell, 2013

It's safe to say that this was the most memorable and amazing year for the the handsome and I. Blessed is an understatement and tonight we'll be saying goodbye to one of the best years of our lives and toasting to 2014!

I would definitely be lying if I wasn't a little sad that this is going to be Rae's last 'first' holiday of the year.

Sadly, we packed up all our Christmas goodies the night of Christmas. Our impending move plus traveling soon has us packing up everything around here.

We started out 2013 in the best possible way. In January, the Lord blessed us with the our precious little Raelyn Errin Tipton. She felt perfect in our arms and more than we could have ever dreamed of. 

We took our first family picture when Rae was just a few days new. These two have my whole heart.

Of course we celebrated lovebug's first holiday! Needless to say my love for holidays has gone into overdrive ever since she was born.

 The Easter bunny even paid her a visit. Pearson (the turtle) in the easter basket is one of Rae's favorite toys right now. It's so cute seeing her carry him around the house.

We watched our tiny newborn turn into a little babe right before our eyes..

We took our first plane ride down to Florida as a family of three..

and we even met the ocean!

 More holidays were celebrated.. 

...and the pups have got a lot of loving on too.

We dressed up like a kitty-cat

and learned how to make the 'Behr face' that we just can't get enough of.

Spent a lot of time on the front porch, eating snacks, watching the pups play and giving lots of hugs...

and had the best first Christmas!

Thank you 2013 for not going by too quickly and for being so magical. 2014 better bring their A-game, because it has some awfully big shoes to fill.
Happy New Year's Eve, friends!
