looking back at 2015

2015 was a good year for the Cramer clan.  In January we moved into our own home after selling our other home and living with the in-laws for six weeks.  We were (and are) very thankful to have a place to call home...and with all my curtain sewing and miscellaneous decorating projects we are making this house our home.  Although we did have a little bit of neighbor drama at first, I have gone out of my way to be nice to everyone and even form some new friendships.  

Lance was enrolled in a special needs Pre-K that is working out really well.  His teachers just love him!  As long as he isn't rushed in the morning, he usually does well getting out the door.  Lance is always ready to have a "great day!" 

Of course it has been amazing to watch our baby girl Clarice learn and grow.  She is certainly going to be our little talker.  She not only wants attention...she pretty much demands it.  Any time we go out in public everyone just falls all over themselves for her!
Later in the year we joined a church that is only a mile and a half up the road.  We feel like that is the place we are supposed to be and we have enjoyed forging new friendships there.  Matt and I have both been able to do a little volunteering with different projects too, but we are making an effort to keep that in balance and not get over-volunteered. 

That's basically the highlights.  I hope you all have a great 2016.  Here's to new beginnings and new adventures!

  3. That does sound like a great year for your family. And I can't imagine anyone who wouldn't love Lance. He seems so sweet and fun. And of course, Clarice is a doll baby! I love that you guys are really putting down roots in your new home. Here's to a great 2016!


thankful for our new schedule

Having 2018 in the rear view mirror is such a blessing.  I am so thankful for the new year and our new schedule.  Lance only has to go to ...
