2015: Stop. Wait a minute. Fill my cup put some liquor in it.


This year lacked an abundance of major milestones, however it was filled with a wholelotta crazy that made for many afternoons having kitchen dance parties to Uptown Funk leaving this Mama ready for Happy Hour the second Daddy came home from work. So here's to 2015, I hope your cup is as full (of liquor) as ours!

January - 

With the school year in full swing, we enjoyed much of our daily routine of Evie going to Young 3s, 3 days a week.  Maggie and Elizabeth spent 2 mornings a week working at The Natural Baby.  Elizabeth started taking classes at Pure Barre. Eric went on the January retreat with Saint Brigid Life Teen and started as a full-time employee for NCR.

February - 

Eric and Evie went to their annual Chick-fil-a Daddy-Daughter Date Night. Elizabeth, Evie and Maggie drove to Savannah to meet new baby cousin Ellie and to celebrate Valentine's Day.  We had a snow day or two. Elizabeth went on a Lent retreat.

March - 

Photography season began for Elizabeth. We introduced the girls to the Stations of the Cross.  Elizabeth worked at MommyCon Atlanta. Eric had a few CHRP reunions.

April - 

Maggie turned one with a full-blown birthday celebration courtesy of Nana and Grandpa. She also started standing (and jumping).  Evie (finally) took interest in using the potty. We spent Easter with both sides of the family.  Spring Break included ice skating, boat day, and a Braves Game. Eric turned 31!

May - 

Evie wrapped up the school year. Evie finished her year of GymTots with a Gymnastic Jamboree. We celebrated the beautiful weather at the zoo, on the boat, and at Food Truck Alley. The last day of May we drove south to 30-A for some fun in the sun.

June - 

The Buergler family beach trip was one for the books. Maggie started climbing stairs and cruising the furniture. Evie went to summer camps at her preschool. Elizabeth, Evie and Maggie were summer regulars at story time, the puppet shows and playgroup. Eric went whitewater rafting with guys from Church and then to Boston for work. The girls had a sleepover weekend at Grandma & G. Daddy's. We had Corsetti Siblings Cabin Weekend.

July -  

Eric ran the Peachtree Road Race.  Elizabeth went to the Edel Gathering in Charleston, SC. Eric and Elizabeth had too much fun shopping Amazon Prime Day.  Evie had VBS and gymnastics camp. The girls had strep (yes, in July). We hosted a gender reveal party for Katie and Sam (it's a boy!)

August - 

Another cabin trip for the books. Maggie started walking. Elizabeth photographed a Baptism and Wedding in the same day (oy!). Evie had SporTykes camp and her Ballet/Tap classes started up for the year. We took a family trip with the Buerglers to Beaufort, SC.

September - 

Evie started 4-day, "Big Threes" as well as Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. Maggie started Me & My Shadow gymnastics classes and started talking. Cousin Eliza was born. Elizabeth began long-term substitute teaching for Kolbe Academy Online and turned 33! Eric spoke at a local chapter of National Charity League. We went to Stone Mountain for the Yellow Daisy Festival.

October - 

October was full of rainy days. Eric and Elizabeth took a long weekend trip to Nashville for their 6th anniversary. The girls stayed with Grandma and G.Daddy. The girls visited a pumpkin patch, apple orchard and went on a few hayrides. Grandma and G.Daddy spoiled us with a Day-cation at Stone Mountain. Eric held down the fort while Elizabeth was knee deep in Fall Photography season. We went trick-or-treating with cousins Luke and Eliza.

November - 

The girls went with cousins to see Santa. We booked Evie's surprised 5th birthday trip to Disney. Evie turned 4. Elizabeth sponsored cousin Rebecca in Confirmation. We celebrated Thanksgiving with the Corsettis and Sanders; and then went to the casino and to pick out Christmas trees with the Buerglers. Nephew Joey arrived almost a month early. We found out we're expecting Baby Buergler #3!

December - 

An ultrasound confirmed that we're having just one Baby in July 2016.  The whole family was home sick for a full week with a non-influenza viral infection. We watched most of the classic Christmas movies and introduced the girls to hot chocolate. A mouse ate the interior of Elizabeth and Eric's cars destroying 3 of our 4 carseats. We celebrated Christmas with all the family. Eric and Elizabeth were Godparents to Eliza.  We rang in the new year by sleeping 10pm-9am!


What was new in 2015?

2 nieces and a nephew. Elizabeth learned to sew. Eric committed to a half Ironman in 2016 and "learned a lot of technically geeky shit". Maggie started walking and talking. Evie potty trained, learned to dress herself and started ballet/tap.

What stayed the same in 2015?


Eric continued to work full-time in software development. Elizabeth stayed home as the primary caregiver to the girls as well as balancing teaching online, photography, and teaching cloth diaper, essential oil and baby wearing workshops.  Together we continued with our couples bible study and our involvement at our parish.  Evie continued to LOVE school and dance.  Maggie keeps growing like a weed! The girls are sweet as can be and absolutely adore one another.
