At the beginning of September, we traveled back home to Iowa in order to attend a family reunion on my dad's side. While we were there, we saw quite a bit of family on both sides, though. It had been awhile since we had all been back, so we were excited to see all of the old places and sites. It was a lot of fun.
In the middle of September, Michael celebrated his 24th birthday. He asked for a cookie cake, so I had to go around to several different places before I was able to find one. My brother and his wife came over to our house in order to help celebrate.
At the end of September, we celebrated one year of being married. I couldn't believe that a year had passed so quickly, but I guess it's amazing how time flies by, especially as you get older. We had a lot of fun going to a place where we could bowl, mini golf, and play arcade games. It was nice to have a day just focused on us.
The rest of the year was not full of many exciting things. In October we celebrated the first Halloween in our new home, and had plenty of trick-or-treaters. In November I took a trip to New York to visit a friend (this will most likely be a separate post) and we celebrated Thanksgiving with both families, as always. Christmas time was full of celebrating, and then before we knew it, it was New Year's Eve. Needless to say, it was a pretty great year. Here's to hoping 2014 is even better. :]
