Welcoming the New Year

Happy New Year!

2014 was such a great year. It definitely had it's hardships for the Dewey household. But it also was filled with love and faith, which made 2014 a great year. 

2014 we became parents. There isn't much better than that. We are so grateful to have such an amazing, healthy baby boy. He has grown and developed so much in the last 6 months, so we are definitely looking forward to continue watching him grow and develop into his personality in 2015. 

2014 also taught me that being a parent is HARD WORK. Especially when your little one is an early teether! But that's why God made babies so beautiful, they are easy to love and care for no matter how sleep deprived you may be. 

In 2014 we started slow with Kjersten being the only one employed the first 2 months. But after much patience and prayer, JT got the job of his dreams working for Intel Security in Idaho Falls. Although we weren't big fans of staying in Idaho, it felt right for us in our lives right now. We still don't understand why, but we know we are where we need to be right now. Which is great because it has given JT a great opportunity to start his career, and he gets paid well so that I can stay home with Jonas. 

In 2015 we of course have made goals to try to better ourselves, which is always important to do in order to progress and learn in life. Our top goal is to become homeowners this year, hopefully by late Spring! We also want to work on living healthier. Today I (Kjersten) felt good stepping on the scale and finding I'm under my goal weight from having a baby, only 1 pound above my starting weight! But we want to work on eating healthier and exercising more. We started and were successful before the Christmas madness, so hopefully we can be better again! 

To celebrate the closing of 2014, and to welcome 2015 we had some of JT's siblings visiting us! We had fun playing games and doing our NYE tradition, cheese fondue.

Happy New Year!
