2013 Kicked Butt/2013 Kicked Our Butt

Dear 2013,

How could we have ever anticipated that we'd end up here? After ten life-filled, laughter-enjoyed, dirty, wonderful years, you brought me to my knees. You led us to the most courageous decision of our tenure as parents: To sell our family home and seek the new. Our venture has brought us anticipation, hope, sadness, grief, evaluation, loss, new horizons, growth, potential, and peace. You've brought us closer as a family and ever-nearer to our LORD. For all of these things we are thankful.

I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.
O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.

And now for some 2013 Picture awesomeness:


We "enjoyed" art

We kissed bananas


We took a bath in the sink



We enjoyed the simple things

We travelled together

We met our Great-Grandma

We welcomed a hatchling

We celebrated the Risen Lord

And gave thanks for HIS many blessings

We received our First Holy Communion

… and we Grew!

We made new friends

We sold our house.

We ate delicious food,

and went to building school.

We dressed up for Halloween,

and celebrated 40 glorious years at the top of a mountain.

2013 brought us to the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. To 2014, we say, BRING IT!! We have Our Lord, we have each other - we've got this.
