Twelve Months of 2014

Even though 2015 is already a month old, I've decided to do a review of 2014. I've gone back and chosen one picture from each month of the last year. The leading off picture is a gift we got showing the whole family. It's detailed enough to have my beard and glasses, Julia's Harry Potter shirt and scarf and Skippy too.

A common winter scene of the kids playing outside for the January, 2014 photo.

Sometimes you just gotta get through the winter with a bit of snuggling.

Sometimes the snow doesn't look terribly deep until you try to walk through it - then the walking turns to trudging.

As the snow was turning into slop in April, we took in a Minnesota Swarm Lacrosse game.

Strolling along the Kinni and looking for baby ducks and geese is always a good May activity.

Finn started playing violin during the summer.

And in July he was getting his exercise playing soccer.

The kids got their first spelunking adventure while underground at Crystal Caves.

Skippy plays this funny game where she sits at the top of the stairs and gently drops a ball on the edge of the step. It then slowly rolls and bounces down the steps. If someone is there to throw the ball for her, she fetches it back to the top and drops it again. She does this all year, but it was the September picture I liked the most.

Julia's not a teenager yet, but she's preparing by spending more and more time in the bathroom.

After reading Watership Down for her book talk assignment for school, Julia also designed a board game as part of the project.

Our Christmas time at our house is the always the first one we do. It's a nice tradition for just the four of us that we enjoy.
