Bubby is such a HUGE blessing in my life & I never knew I could love someone so much!

On the 18th the newest addition to our family arrived! My niece Isabella Claire was born!!!

The 5th was our 1 year anniversary!!! We had dinner at Jeff Ruby's (it was the best meal I've ever had).

The next day we headed up to Cincinnati to watch the REDS & go to IKEA!!!

Also in June baby Bella had her baby dedication at church:

Fast forward to October.... We had a lot of trick-or-treating events with the babies! Our first stop was the zoo!
