Ah the end of the year. Time to look back and then turn our faces toward the new year and our future.

This is what 2015 looked like in Sluiter Nation…

It’s hard to choose just a handful of photos to represent the whole year. As you can imagine I have a million pictures of Alice. We also had so much fun with friends and family this year, but have no pictures to show for it.

The point is, we have been very, very blessed in 2015.

There were times that were very slim and some that were rough. We definitely struggled with Charlie’s tantrums and Eddie adapting to first grade and Alice teething.

But all in all, it went by way too fast.

And now, on to 2016!
