So, pretty much…this year has been AMAZING. We played in snow. We got a dog. Sister joined us in homeschool. We went to Disney a few times. We discovered that we are most definitely a camping family. We got a new cousin/niece. We went to the beach more times than I can count. We had a bazillion little “nothing special” moments that turned out to be the most special things of all. This year has been such a blessing from the Lord and I don’t want to take a single moment of it for granted. I’m excited about welcoming in 2012…both as a family and as a studio. Collin and I have BIG things planned for this year and we can’t wait to share them with you. I pray that for all of us it’s a great one.
God wants us to glorify Him…it’s what He put us on this earth to do. And He wants to bless us with life…abundant life. “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” John 10:10 ENJOY these amazing moments that He blesses us with! This life is Beautiful!
Can you believe that this is the ONLY photo that we have of all four of us from 2011? That’s shameful. My resolution for 2012 is to document the four of us together more. I will shove the camera into the hands of family members when we are with them. And even if, as my sister-in-law says, it ends up crooked and out of focus, at least we will have it. =)
This past week we trekked down to Jacksonville for what was supposed to be a day trip to visit with Collin’s parents and grandfather. What we didn’t count on was that it would take us SIX AND A HALF HOURS to get to Jacksonville. Traffic was insane. We ended up spending the night in Savannah. I’m so glad we went, though. We love this man SO much. Almost 97 years old. He’s pretty amazing. The kids were showing him pictures on my iPhone and someone asked him if his phone looked like that. His response? “Sometimes after my third martini.” HA! Abie’s still pretty quick with his comebacks.
We have pretty wild and crazy plans tonight for s’mores with friends and kids. It’s gonna be HUGE. I wouldn’t have it any other way. Happy New Year to you all! Kiss someone you love at midnight!
