Happy 2009!

Wow! Have things changed over the course of 12 months around here, if you would like to see the highlights of 2009 here they are!








Chris Graduated from the police academy!


Ben and I celebrated our 8th Wedding Anniversary!


I continued to struggle to potty train Savannah


We got a new car!


I turned 26! Yuck!

I got used to being a mom to three

Savannah was officially potty trained!


And we have been sick as dogs around here ever since the end of December!

Holy cow, life has been CRAZY, and I can't wait to see what this year brings! I am hoping for more kids, yes I am crazy like that, and for God to create a great family for us and to use all of us to do HIS will!

I do anticipate Savannah going home this year, probably around March, so that will be hard, but I know God has a plan and years from now I will look back and smile at what HE did in our lives - even when it was hard.
