Ahh... that magical time of year. The forging of traditions and the making of memories. Like the rest of 2014, it was a weird and bumpy lead-up to Christmas. Fin was in training much of December (and November), and when he finally came home, I had to leave for a work trip. But we didn't let that stop us from making cookies, watching the parade, seeing the lights, and being with family.

Little Joe's first Christmas.

We are so grateful to once again be able to celebrate such a special time with the whole family. This was a wonderful year. Full of growth and milestones (not just for the baby), hard times, and happy times.

'sall good.
