Looking Back at 2016 and Looking Forward to 2017

This was us last year on New Year’s Eve….


And this is now…


The kids have grown up so much and changed so much over the past year.

2016 was a fun year full of lots of love, laughter, and craziness.

Brady is now in Pre-K 4 and played soccer this fall. We transformed his toddler room into a big boy room with a full size bed; he and Brant share the room.


The quints started Pre-K 2 this year. Most of them we released from their therapies and they have been much healthier this year. We took their pacifiers away this past summer. Once most of them learned how climb over our baby fences, we took the fences down leaving the house open to roam, which has made life much harder for us to keep up with everyone and keep everyone out of trouble. We’ve been getting out of the house more because they are healthier and stronger which is nice to let them experience new things. And we separated the girls into two rooms. Mia and Gracie slept in their new room together last night and it went well.


It’s hard to believe 2017 is here. Seems like 2016 went by so fast. In March, Brady will turn 5, which is a big milestone; he will be out of the toddler years and will start to kindergarten in the fall. The quints will turn 3 in March as well and from what I hear, 3 is a hard age with higher order multiples, so they are sure to keep us very busy this next year. So it’s looking like 2017 is going to be a busy year full of new beginnings and excitement.

I pray that you had a wonderful holiday season and that 2017 is full of love and blessings.

Be blessed,
