The Year In Review: 2013

In an effort to ignore and avoid the train wreck which is Jenny McCarthy on Rockin' New Years Eve, I've decided to take a moment and reminisce on all the memories our family made this year.  No big NYE plans for the Ashton's this year, as we are headed on a plane tomorrow morning to Denver to have a late Christmas with the Eby's.

The pictures below sum up all the family "firsts" we had this year.  I love seeing these photos next to each other...it really was an amazing, happy year.  Some firsts you will not see in the photos?  Darla's first time blogging (personally and professionally); Aubrey's first time to use the potty; first Ashton family flu bug experience; Eric's first time chasing down a neighborhood robber.  Probably a good thing we don't have photos to commemorate some of those experiences.  But glad we do have photos for the "firsts" listed below...
