What did 2007 bring us?


We took a leap of faith and did the Palace Bridal Show

Kobe had his first Valentines Day party in his Pre-school class

My sister Bobbie got married


I started a Blog...

We bought our first home with a big back yard!!

Kobe turned 5 years old

Ben mowed his OWN lawn for the first time

We went to the Ghent family reunion for the 5th year in a row

Elle Rain Wentzel was born

Kobe and Brook went bowling for the first time

David Gabriel Shell made his first appearance

Mark & Ben tiled, and tiled, and tiled...

Kobe started Kindergarten
We all got to meet Elle for the first time
I...I mean Ben...got a new camera


In October Chris, Alyssa & Kendra came up for a visit and the kids all went to Bronners together for the first time and had a Halloween candy hunt in their costumes together

We had our first Halloween party at our house

Kobe went to the Pistons Basketball Camp at Church


And we spent time with people we absolutely adore.



And if you want to see what the end of our year has been like just check out my recent blogs.



2007 has been an exciting year filled with lots of new milestones in our little family's life. It will be so interesting to see what God has planned for our 2008.

We pray that God continues to make our paths straight as we do our best to follow HIM.
