2020 Year In Review

 I really expected this post to be quick to put together since we spent most of it in quarantine but I was surprised at how much we did and how many fun memories we made!


We started the new year with birthday month! Travis, Peyton, and Colson each turned another year older. We celebrated Travis with tubing. Peyton had a cereal party! Colson had a friend party at the hot springs. I started making cakes this month and it turned into much more than I ever anticipated. Both boys were cavity free!


Travis and I went to Vegas for a work conference and then made the drive down to Arizona to see my grandparents. Colson received an award at school for his illustration. Colson also received an award for responsibility!


I attended my first cake class. Charlee Jo had kidney surgery to repair a blockage. COVID shut the world down. We did our best to spread some joy.


We celebrated Easter as a family. We entered the world of distance learning. The kids and I participated in a drive by birthday parade for Robbie. Can those stick around?! So much fun! Quarantine got to both of Travis and I and we both lost some hair! And we spent so much time outside.

We took family pictures. My mom, aunt, Kacie, and I went on a fun outing to a local winery. I went to Nashville with friends to attend my friend Liza's wedding.
