January brought Dad's birthday and our cruise to the Eastern Caribbean! We got to visit St. Marten, St. Thomas, and the Bahamas. It was an amazing trip and we were so blessed to be able to go!
February brought Jackson's first wrestling match. He won with a pin and his mom may or may not have flipped the flip out!
March was Brooklyn's first spring game of the soccer season. She had another successful season! She is so talented and such a good athlete!
April was Easter and we loved attending the West Point Easter Egg Hunt! We were especially impressed by their accommodations for those with disabilities!
May was super busy! Grandpa and Grandma Nef came to visit, which we ALWAYS love! Mom changed jobs from Salt Lake Community College to Ogden City.
June was Mom's birthday and I got to have a pedicure with Nana and Sis. She loved it so much!
July was another busy month. We went camping with Nana, Pops, Brandon and Carrie. Because of the storms, we were only able to stay one night, but it was fun regardless! Brooklyn organized our first pretend birthday party and it was a blast! And, Mom and Braxton ran our first 5k race. It was so awesome! Braxton took third place overall!
August saw three of our boys be ordained to offices in the Priesthood. We were so blessed with support for that event. It was also when we gained another family member, Gus. And, of course it was the boys' birthdays!
September gave us a scare with a big fire in our backyard. We are so thankful to all of the responders who came all of the residents and animals safe! We also enjoyed the Christensen family reunion at Cherry Hill!
October brought a knee surgery for Dad. He has recovered well and is doing his best to be patient until we do the knee replacement!
November was Thanksgiving and a Mom who was never home because of two jobs!
December brought Christmas, long hours for mom and dad, and mom deciding that quitting and being with the family was the top priority.
2015 has brought our family many challenges, and an enormous amount of blessings. I am so thankful to be a mom and a wife. We hope that we will have many more fun memories in 2016!
