I have been doing a memories, dreams and reflections post each year since 2010. It is my favorite thing to do at the end of each year. You can see all the past years here. I love looking through my photos from the year and picking out my favorites for each theme.
I didn’t take this photo but I love it. You may see a few photos from our family shoot with Whitney Norko.
I Love You
I love my three sons so much! I was definitely meant to be a boy mom. Prestyn is so chunky compared to my two skinny minis. They both eat all day long and still so skinny.
Dustyn makes the best scared faces anything he sees a shark. lol.
Snow from January 27, 2015.
Carsyn’s cow birthday at Chick-fil-a. Which I still need to blog about. Oops!
Dustyn hanging out with his friends during his birthday party.
I Was Inspired…
I was inspired by the movie Big Hero 6 to make these Baymax Cookie Balls.
Spring flowers are my favorite!
Travel or Vacation
We just got back from our vacation last week. We went to Sea World and Busch Gardens in Florida. I took my DSLR but I ended up using my phone the whole time. It was just easier.
Dustyn swimming in the hot tub.
A Day In My Life
Prestyn loves to be held all day long, so he gets worn in a baby carrier a lot.
Prestyn giving me huge smiles with his new Elephant toy he got for Christmas.
Love taken photos of changing leaves in the fall. The bokeh at sunset is always so gorgeous.
Family or Home
My favorite photo from our shoot with Whitney.
I had another successful VBAC, definitely a reason to Celebrate.
Let’s Do It Again…
We went whale watching and I really want to go again. It was so much fun.
I Miss You
I lost three people close to me this year. My granddaddy James, where Prestyn gets his middle name , my grandma Cokie (pictured above), and my Aunt Joanne. I miss them all so much and only wish I had more photos of them. We also had to say goodbye to our dog Dudley. 2015 was a rough year for my family.
A beautiful sunset in our little town.
Dustyn dressed up as an Enderman, and Carsyn was Steve riding on a pig, both are from Minecraft.
Love this shot of the mushrooms. Not technically macro I guess. I already know what may be my macro next year though. I took amazing photos of snowflakes yesterday with my phone and new macro lens.
My three boys on Christmas morning.
The boys on their first day of school. Still one of my favorites.
Don’t Ever Change
Dustyn is the best big brother to Carsyn and Prestyn. He always watches out for them and I hope that never changes.
Just Because…So There!
Just because he is so cute. Carsyn really is such a happy guy most of the time. As long as all of his basic needs are met he goes with the flow and has a great time. The only time he is not happy is in the car. Not sure what it is, but he has never really liked it.
Hopes and Dreams
I hope that Prestyn will grow and develop well this next year. We had a scare the first week of his life and I just hope that it doesn’t affect him in the future.
