2008 was...

...a pretty easy year for us.  We didn't have a lot of earth shattering choices to make-really just one that popped up out of no where.

Here is a glimpse into our 2008:


I hit a deer with my car (way to start this list off on a good note)

Mark had some heart problems and Doctors decided to do surgery to fix them.
After the surgery the doctor states, "Your heart seems to have fixed itself"

I get a new car (not because of the deer)





Ben and I decided to adopt- not knowing what way God would lead us to do so.




Dakota is Born




I turn 25 years old


Ben and I turn the "office" into a children's bedroom

I am shaking my head at the first thing I wrote in this post:

"This was a pretty easy year for us"

What?!?!  After going through the events of this year all I can say is I am so THANKFUL for the grace God has shown to all of us in so many situations!  I am so excited to see what this year brings.  Next year, when I do this same post, it will be interesting to see what it holds.

Lord, guide our steps, prepare our hearts, and help us to run this course with all we have for You!

I often wonder with all the people we meet, how do people go thru lifes events and not have GOD, a family, a church family and friends? We are blessed.
Love you bunches,
