I created this blog as a way to "Keep up with the Joneses"! We feel so blessed to get to spend everyday together and my hope is that this blog is a way for us to look back and remember our journey together! I know this will evolve and I cannot wait to see what it turns in to. I have recently added my side business on to the blog. I taking a leap of faith with my photography and cannot wait to see what happens. I hope you enjoy!

The Joneses 2016

What an incredible year! The year I became a mom. It has truly brought me more joy than I have ever known and a love I cannot describe. To think that Jesus loves us even more than we love our babies is just mind blowing. So thankful for all 2016 brought to our family. There were lots of ups, downs, and in between. The Lord was with us through it all and I cannot wait to see what he has in store for 2017!






So normally I do a picture recap, but I am wiped out trying to catch up this blog. Here's a few hight lights from our year! It was the best! 

Jan: We announced we were pregnant & took a fun trip to Chicago! 

Feb: We found out we were having a GIRL! 

March: We went to the Grand Canyon and Phoenix for Jeffrey's work trip. We also took our first ever Jones girls trip. 

April: We planed for Mary-Cameron! Jeffrey went on a fun guys trip to Virginia Beach. 

May: Jeffrey turned 30 and we celebrated ALOT. We went to Lake Tahoe and Vermejo! I also had two sweet baby showers and went to my first Byron Nelson!

June: We found out I had placenta previa and that changed some plans, but Mary-Cameron continued to grow! (Praise God) We had lots of sweet baby showers to celebrate our girl! 

July: We went on a staycation and prepared for Mary-Cameron! My GCYL girls surprised me with the sweet baby shower, like seriously blew me away!Wait what am I saying.. surprise! Mary-Cameron joined us 5 weeks early on July 29, 2016. It was the BEST day! She scared us quite a bit, but she was a fighter and after a 10 day stay in the NICU we got to bring our girl home! 

August: I honestly do not remember.. just kidding.. kind of.. We brought home our girl! We adjusted to life with sweet MC! 

September: YL started back up and we started to find a new normal. Ruthie turned 1! I started Bible Study Fellowship, a moms group and Mary-Cameron and I started Music Class. We also cheered on our Bears! 

October: Lots of fall fun, cheered for the Baylor Bears, Mary-Cameron started sleeping through the night and whew was that a game changer! I also decided to resign from my counseling job at CTMS to stay home with MC full time. It was a very bittersweet decision, but I am loving being able to be with my girl full time right now!

November: Jeffrey & I celebrated 5 years of marriage. We went on a weekend getaway to the hill country and it was such a sweet time reflecting on our marriage. We also celebrated Thanksgiving with both of our families and started to feel more in a routine. 

December: We celebrated Christmas ALOT. We went on a YL ski trip, made sweet memories with friends and family. 

Thankful for 2016,

MJ
