2013 was an amazing year!2013! It began with many fears surrounding the girls' upcoming entrance to kindergarten that ended with the good news of our new "Mayor". Included celebrated milestones we never thought possible. Gave new meaning to dreams coming true. Brought great health. Blessed us with new friendships. Opened our eyes to a whole new level of human kindness. And created memories with family and friends that we will cherish forever.
So many proud moments this year. Looking back it is amazing how blessed this year was. First we found out Mia was being granted her "dream" to meet Cinderella. The trip, given to us by The Dream Factory, was nothing short of magically unforgettable. It truly was the trip of a lifetime! Our Give Kids the World Star shines brightly in our family room, our own little "Castle of Miracles". During this trip, we were fortunate enough to travel with another Rochester family and began a new friendship.
Of course, Fall did not disappoint. School began with a bang! All kids love their teachers and are doing great! On our first long weekend, we were able to take a drive through Canada's African Lion Safari. The monkeys hitching rides on the roof our car was definitely a highlight for us! All the kids enjoyed our annual trip to Stokoe Farms for some Fall Fun. The main event....Gabriella and Mia turned five. They thoroughly enjoyed their Princess Sofia party and all the accolades that came along with it.
The year ended with holiday celebrations and much needed family time!
Here's hoping for another banner year.
