2014 in Review

We arrived on January 20th...and 5 out of 6 people in the family promptly got sick. Our introduction to America was a lot of laying around and getting over a jet lag/yucky flu combo.

After a less-than-auspicious intro to America, life got better. It snowed! 3 of our 4 kids had never played in snow before, so it was pretty exciting. Our little blizzard only amounted to about 2'' of white, but with the help of their uncles, they had snowmen, snowball fights and even a snow fort.

We discovered the awesomeness of free kids workshops at Lowe's and Home Depot! That would be their Trojan Horse piggy bank...

Easter eggs in America are awesome!

Then, we started our 4-oil change tour of America...20,000 miles, 36 states, and many many friends, supporters and relatives were visited....

We stayed for part of the summer at our church in Virginia---had a great time!

We enjoyed celebrating a good old American 4th of July...

Then, it was back to Missouri for a short pit stop...

Then, back on the road to the West coast, lots more friends and a short stop in a big canyon.

Then, back to Missouri...and we had a visit from Strawberry Shortcake, Pocahontas, Leif the Lucky, and an unidentified Redcoat (who we decided was from the French and Indian War).

Then, we all caught a BIG ol' fish together...almost pulled Asia in, so Grampy reeled it in, and we had quite the supper.

Then, we had Christmas with lots of family....

It's been a great year, and in a couple of days we are headed back to the Philippines , and a new family adventure. 

Thanks for sharing 2014 with us!
