2013 Nutshell. Time to Catch Up.

By Chelsey5 @chelseysullivan

Where to even begin?

I have been a bad blogger. No posts in over a year! Sometimes life flies by and you can’t seem to catch up.

But I have made up my mind to be better at keeping up with the blog.

So a quick montage of 2013 is in order.

My last post was in February of 2013 so I thought it best to start from there.

Then I will cover our 2014 year. Hope you all enjoy it!

She gave some love to Trooper (my dads horse) that day.

We got to tour the Air Force museum and go on a beautiful hike.

Great family time!

We went to Idaho to a beautiful vacation rental that we shared with our whole family to celebrate my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary!

The rental was near the Yellowstone National Park.

So we explored the park and enjoyed time together as a family.

JULY 2013

In July the home we were renting sold and we moved to another rental out in the country.

My kids liked the house because it had a great place to play in the mud.

Then I got to see my baby sister! She was pregnant with my nephew Grayson during her visit.

My older sister and I threw her a baby shower and I got to take her lovely maternity photos.

She was a stunning momma to be.

SEPTEMBER 2013

The beginning of September was still very warm so we went to the lake.

We enjoyed some fun time in the sun.

Then later in the month when things began to cool off we went to the 1st annual Harvest Party at Grandma’s and Grandpa’s house.

The kids got to help harvest the garden, make a scarecrow, bake a pie and enjoy little gifts and time with family.

So fun!

Then we had a huge change.

We moved to Colorado!

Shane got a new job and to be closer to him we decided it was best to leave our beloved Wyoming and go to Colorado.

I was a lovely 6 1/2 months pregnant when we moved.

Baby was growing beautifully and the cravings were ever so present!

So in a nutshell that is our crazy year.

As always it has been fast and furious but wonderful.
