A Year in Review

So I am completely at a loss for words that it is officially 2014. Seriously the last few months flew by. Like in a blur and I am not sure that I was even awake for some of it. However, 2013 was a pretty good year for my crew. We were blessed in so many ways. Financially, spiritually and physically. 

We got to watch our precious boys grow, and boy did they ever! We have great jobs, a nice house, a brand new Tahoe that I might have begged for, we went on some pretty neat trips and had a wonderful holiday season!

Ryan is back in Midland. He seems to be doing ok, we saw him a couple days after Christmas. I wish he was around more, it makes me sad that Case hardly knows him, but I am hoping that he is on the way to doing better for himself. I sure love this kid man. I don't even have a recent pic of him. I guess that's what happens when they grow up and leave home

Christian has moved into a new chapter in his life, we I mean he broke up with his longtime girlfriend that he had been with since his freshman year. I know he misses her, I miss her, but I am happy as long as he's happy. He's on the last leg of Senior year! I can't wait to see where this kid is going to go. I am so very proud of the young man that he is and the man he is becoming.  

Kaden is my happy, computer nerd, video game lovin' kid. Man I love this one's positive outlook. He's had quite the struggle so far in 5th grade. I don't think he was prepared for how hard it was going to be, I know I wasn't! But if there is one thing I can always expect from this kid, it's that even when things seem bad and his smile is upside down, he bounces back like no one ever! He took the year 2013 out with a bang... he chose Jesus! Chris baptized him on December 29, 2013. We couldn't be prouder!

Case... oh lord, I don't even know where to start with this one. This precious boy can always bring a smile to my face, which is good cause I think we might be in trouble once he hits the terrible twos. (I think God knows what he's doing when he makes these boys cute) He's learned so much. He can do over 15 signs, and now has added words to go with them. He's running, not walking. He makes our family complete. I don't know who adores him more... me, his dad or his brothers. He is definitely the center of attention and I don't think any of of would have it any other way!

Chris and I have had a great year, even though Chris was laid off earlier this year, he's found a job that he's pretty happy with. I was promoted to Executive Director at MECD and couldn't be happier with my job! We've been blessed with a great marriage and beautiful kids... what more could we ask for. Well if you ask me... nothing except maybe a new bigger house! (hint hint! Babe, you know I had to put it out there!)

I'm not normally a big New Year's Resolution kinda girl, but this year I really want to do better, better at a lot of things... praying, being thankful,being happier, more patient, more tolerant, and last but not least, I want to blog more.

Lamentations 3:22-24
Because of the Lord's faithful love we do not perish,for His mercies never end.
23 They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness!
24 I say: The Lord is my portion,therefore I will put my hope in Him.
