Year in Review - 2014 - Celebrations & Holidays

We kicked off the recap week with our travel adventures and then all of our "firsts".  Today, I recap all the big celebrations and holidays that happened throughout the year.

LET'S CELEBRATE...
The first birthday we got to celebrate this year was Mimi's birthday in February.  After a crazy snow storm the week before, it warmed up rapidly and we headed to the National Zoo to celebrate Mimi's birthday weekend with us here in MD!




One of my favorite pictures of the year was taken right after we attended the local St. Patrick's Day parade.  Out for lunch in our green attire celebrating our "Irish"...






We celebrated Easter at Epcot wearing our bunny ears all day long...





Easter dinner was held in "Norway" with a few familiar princesses...






Although we spent the week before Georgia's 3rd birthday celebrating non-stop in Disney World, her actual birthday was just a quiet night at home with the three of us... and a few cupcakes...





During the first weekend of May, we held a party at our house to celebrate Georgia's turning 3.  This year's theme was... appropriately... Minnie Mouse...








Spring is always a busy time at the Thoman House.  Before I had time to fully clean up from Georgia's birthday, Mother's Day arrived on the scene.  I got to have a great brunch with my favorite peeps before getting shipped off to Red Door for the day.  YES, please!!






And because May is non-stop action, Nick's 36th birthday was the following weekend.  We celebrated at our favorite Greek restaurant...






We wrapped up May by celebrating the long Memorial Day weekend at home.  Warm weather arrived just in time for the pool to open!





Summer officially kicked off with celebrating our favorite guy on Father's Day...





Nick and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary on the beaches of Paradise Island in the Bahamas.  For some reason, the staff seemed to think it was our honeymoon, which earned us a sweet suite upgrade and a beverage or two...






Happy anniversary to us!

We unexpectedly spent the 4th of July holiday in Massachusetts after a busted AC unit at our house.  Uncle Andrew put on one heck of a fireworks display...






We celebrated Clay and Asha's (Nick's cousin) wedding along the California coast in early August with his family...



Did I mention the crazy after party????


We wrapped up the summer by spending the entire Labor Day weekend at the pool.  By the end of the season, Georgia was swimming like a fish all by herself in the deep end!






September brought us back to the west coast for my friend's wedding in sunny Seattle...







October brought Halloween and a huge debate in our house - polar bear vs panda bear.  Thankfully, I ordered the right costume and Georgia got to wear it to a few different celebrations at school and around the neighborhood for trick-or-treating...






In early November, Georgia celebrated a big milestone - her first night in a true big girl bed...






Our little turkey had a great Thanksgiving here in MD with Nick's family...






The following weekend, we celebrated Cookie Bake 2014...


My little baker...


December wrapped up with celebrating my 35th birthday and Nick's annual work party where Georgia FINALLY made friends with Santa...









Phew... I'm exhausted just recapping our year!
