This year has been some kind of year. Our Christmas card shows that I ran the gamut of hairstyles...three different ones in three photos and this doesn't even cover the colors...
We do, incidentally, wish you all love, joy, and laughter for the coming year. Ahem. We took a weekend trip to the Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum in Mansfield, Missouri.
That was pretty near, we also traveled far. In fact, the farthest west we have been as a family of three.
We had family photos at the beach, sealing our suburban status!
I got two black belts and the two are as different as night and day and both equally as special.
One of my bestest friends got married.
We had an adoption fall through and, a few months later, life definitively informed us that this is not the time for our family to grow.
We celebrated and mourned Garrett's 3rd birthday.
To end on a happy note, Autumn took the best picture ever of me!
So, this year was a typical year, I suppose. We lived, loved, cried, partied, laughed, and felt all the emotions in between that make up life. I have so much to write about...here's to a more consistent year of blogging! Thank you for your support and prayers this year. How would we ever have made it this far without you?
