As 2016 comes to a close...the Hammerick's are feeling HAPPY, PROUD, and THANKFUL! Here are some of our most memorable moments from this past year.
Allie ice skated for the first time and learned very quickly!
The Hammeick's went to Great Wolf Lodge...
...for Allie's first cheer competition of the season.
Allie ran her first Girl Scout cookie business and sold over 300 boxes of cookies!
The Hammerick's got their very first pets...FISH (Shimmer and Starlight)...
...Allie completed her first year of Lego League with her team, The Recycle Friends...
...and we took a cruise to St. Maarten, Haiti, and the Virgin Islands (Allie's 5th and Ayden's 3rd).
Todd took the family for our first flight together..
...and the kiddos saw their first Tiger's game at Comerica Park.
Ayden graduated from Lynnie's Place...
...and we drove out east to Philadelphia and to visit Sesame Place.
Both the Hammerick kiddos achieved their wishes for 2016.
Ayden officially became a big boy by hanging up his binkie, learning to use the potty, and sleeping in a big boy bed all within a couple weeks of each other...
...and Allie learned to ride a two-wheeler!
Fairy doors magically appeared in our house...
...and Todd and I celebrated our 15 year anniversary with our first trip away from the kids to Utah.
Allie started kindergarten and Ayden started preschool...
...and Ayden turned THREE!
OCTOBER & NOVEMBER
(Just a lot of fall activities, but nothing extraordinary)
Allie turned SIX...
...and no one cried for Santa's photo this year!
