Our Year in Review, Part Deux

I love going back and reviewing all of the events of the year--it's been a busy one!

In JUNE, we hung out together as a family a lot and enjoyed the heat sunshine.

Ellie spent some time cooling off in the fridge....

And we did some yummy baking!

JULY brought us on an amazing vacation to Israel with my family!

We spent a wonderful two weeks exploring Israel (more pictures here, here, here and here). Love.

In AUGUST, we went to the Jersey Shore, and on a day trip to Long Branch to celebrate Steve's birthday.

We also found out that we were expecting a baby BOY! (We loved our gender reveal cake from Carvel!)

SEPTEMBER brought a lot of changes, including a move to the toddler room for little Ellie and new hours at work for me.

We celebrated the holiday of Sukkot with our own backyard sukkah!

And took this mommy-daughter photo, one of my favorites:)

In OCTOBER, we visited a pumpkin patch with family:

And Mama here enjoyed a mani/pedi and lunch with friends!

Ellie joined us on a family lunch at Noi Due, one of my favorite restaurants in the city, where she literally sat and ate every course. #hoorayfortoddlersthatlovetheirfood

And meanwhile, the baby bump grew and grew....

By NOVEMBER, I started feeling REALLY pregnant!

We also got into a car accident (but were ok, thank G-d) and wound up with a new minivan as a result. Silver lining?

DECEMBER started off with Chanuka celebrations!

We spent time with my family (hey sis!):

Experienced quite a bit of snow:

And topped the year off by welcoming baby Moshe on December 24!!!

Moshe spent 8 days in the NICU, but we found out on December 29 that he had passed all of his tests and would be discharged the next day. It was the best way to end the year:)

What was the most major event in YOUR 2013?
