Happy New Year!

Yes, I realize it is July. But, since I haven't posted anything since 2009, I thought I would call this one a New Year's post. I'm not going to try to put everything that's happened in the last 15 months on here, because I don't think anyone loves me enough to read all that. BUT, here are a few highlights:

Charlie lived through his first year of school and graduated Kindergarten.

I lived through Charlie's first year of school, although many tears were involved.

Rachel finished her first year of preschool and is now smarter than us all; just ask her, she'll tell you.

Audrey is 2, and so good at it. She is way more stubborn than I ever was (no comments, Dad), but cute enough to make up for it.

We had our first object stuck up a nose last week. Yes, it was Audrey, it was a bead. She also swallowed a bead that day. They both came out alright. No more beads at our house.

We are taking our first ever full-week family vacation, starting TOMORROW. Half a week of camping with friends, half a week of visiting with family= 9 days of happiness. And yes, that math does add up in my head.

Next month, Brian and I will have been together for 10 years. One decade. Wow. Things are so much better now, thank you Lord. I can't wait to see where we are in another 10 years!

I re-connected with 2 friends that I haven't been close to in years, and it is so awesome to be back in touch with them. I love my friends!

I finally got a new high-efficiency washer and dryer. My life is still crazy, but oh so much better.

Jackson turned 18. As in, legally an adult. I can't believe my husband has an adult child, we are so not that old!

Okay, that's my list for now. We are so truly blessed in our lives that I could go on forever about all the wonderful things that are happening. Instead, I will just try to blog more often than every 15 months to share our happenings. I will try to remember how to post pictures, because I've got some good ones. And know that if you are one of our friends or family, we love you , and pray that you are just as happy and crazy as we are!

Love from Wyoming,
