Cha Cha Cha Changes

It's that time of year again. Yes. The time of year where we make all new goals and hope we reach them. Well this year we will. It's also the time for changes not necessarily things that are goals. Let me put you in the loop of things going on in our life.

  • Andrew is getting his Associates degree by the end of summer time. What? Just his Associates? He has been going to school for over 2 years! Well Andrew was going straight for his Bachelors but now he is going for his Associate degree and then his Bachelors. Don't worry he will still graduate completely by the end of 2014 (possibly the very beginning of 2015) he just wanted to have the actual Associates degree just in case some freak accident happened.
  • Starrie is working out now. If you know me AT ALL you will know that this is surely a miracle. lets keep that goal/ habit up. OK? OK.
  • Jocey is making it a goal to be potty trained. It has been a NIGHTMARE! But its gotta happen sometime soon, right?
  • We are getting a second car! Yay! We are SO stoked about this. So if you see a decently priced Honda Pilot with 8 seats, hit us up. We have our eye on one but are still open to others.
  • Jocelynn will be put in some sort of extra curricular activity this year.
  • Jocelynn is also in primary.
  • We are getting a camera. Finally. Our old one decided to break the day we had Vivian.
  • We got a new nephew at the beginning of the year. Jeffery Ethan Summerhays!  
  •  Andrew had a permanent change of getting his wisdom teeth out. It was for the best.
  • I am also starting Vivian's baby book this week. 
There are lot's of things going on right now. So many things to think about/worry about. Sorry I am being terrible at blogging. I will get the hang of it soon. Oh and THIS song is stuck in my head.

Our year review 2012

2012 was a big year for us in lots of ways, lots of good ways! Here is a little bit about each of the family members year.

Completed 2 years of schooling at Broadview University and continues going and learning the things he enjoys. He went from being the store manager at 5 Buck Pizza to being an Admissions Rep at his school and excelling in his job. He went from being an father of 1 to a father of 2 little girls who have him wrapped around their fingers. And he now looks forward to (hopefully) graduating next year with his bachelors degree.

Went from being not pregnant for over 2 years to full on pregnancy. She sewed, crafted, cooked and tackled many projects. She continued to be a stay at home mother. She gave birth smack dab in the middle of October, and went from being  a mother of 1 to a mother of 2 little girls. Starrie looks forward to stabilizing life with 2 children and getting her body back.

She went from saying several words and randomly put them together, to forming full and complete sentances. She went from barely being able to sit through movies and shows, to memorizing all their theme songs and lines. Jocey went from 1 inch of hair to about 4 inches of hair. She had her first dentist visits and chipped tooth. And she became an awesome big sister who shows the little one more love than ever. Jocelynn is looking forward to getting potty trained.

Made it through the journey of becoming a full on baby. She came out healthy and had a smile the minute we saw her. She has learned to coo, babble, stand, bat at objects etc. She has brought all new meaning to our family and she brings joy to those who meet her. Vivian looks forward to sitting up, crawling and walking.

As a family we are looking forward to tax returns, our two week trip to Texas, getting into a bigger, newer car and all the special life experiences that are soon to come! We hope you had a happy New Year and that all the things you want will be attained!
