As this year draws to a close I just keep thinking wow...that went by quick...seems like these years go by faster and faster! Yikes!
We have had so many things happen this year...some good, some bad,
and some that still make me sad when I think about them...but through it all I have found God to be faithful and I am so grateful for all the prayers he has answered for us...I found myself wondering a few times if our prayers would be answered but when we least expected it...the answers came. Not always how we would like for them to but neverthless, the answer came.
We were once again blessed to be able to take a vacation out Colorado, my favorite place to visit...we found a new little town that we had been wanting to go to for several years now...Creede....and we loved it, so we may try to revisit there again...but Estes Park is also on our list....I think we REALLY love that town and the RMNP!
Bobby and I have both been blessed in that we have been able to keep our jobs when so many others have not been as fortunate...sometimes I think we take things like that for granted.
I am very thankful to have my mom still with us...she had a rough couple of months to start this year with and the Doctors said to call the family in...which we did, and my aunts and uncle came in as well as my sister from Nevada....but God heard and answered our prayers and I am so happy to say she is still with us. Oddly enough, right before all this took place, I fell on the ice in front of our house and broke my dr. put me in a cast all the way up my arm so I couldn't work and I was off for 6 weeks and was able to spend time with my mom while she was in the hospital...if I had been working I wouldn't have been able to do this...I say often " we don't see the big picture that God does" He knew I would need that time to be with my mom and made the way possible.
So this year instead of the usual things I always put on my{new years resolution} "to do list"{which I rarely ever get done} I pray that in the coming year...I will try my best to be a better Christian, a better witness for Jesus to others, a better wife, mother, Grammy, aunt, daughter, sister, and friend...and to also try to be so much more thankful for all the blessings I recieve on a daily basis!
Have a Blessed and Very Happy New Year Everyone!

Okay so I FINALLY got back to my blog... Yah I know I said I would be black to blog but somehow never made it back on here....I have by far probably been the worst blogger in the year of 2010!!!! We have been VERY busy these past few months but have news to share....
Kooper turned a big one year old in November....he is such a good baby although he has been very sick with ear infections and his momma has had a time with being sick herself....
Candace and her children moved back here and she has a new job which provides her a steady income for her and her family.... she has had a pretty rough year so we are happy things are looking up for her ....
Basketball season is off and running and therefore we are too! Our lady Warriors are doing well this season! And Praise the Lord Bree has not been hurt or on crutches this year.....
Bobby ended up getting cellulitus in his elbow{OUCH} which landed him in the hospital for three days and having surgery to remove the infection...he is healing nicely now and glad to get back to his normal routine which is busy.....
Bree finally got to get her braces off after wearing them for 26 months...needless to say it was a very special day!
A week before Christmas our daughter Brianna got engaged to a very sweet young man named Dalton...anyone who follows us on facebook probably already heard this happy news =) We couldn't be happier for the both of them...They are waiting until she graduates which will be 2012 to marry. I was fortunate enough to capture this very special moment!
We all had a very Merry Christmas....a very busy day...plenty to eat...but very blessed...
I am off for the week and trying to play catch up with housework and laundry and hopefully get all the Christmas decorations down and start decorating for Valentines Day!
Well, that is about all for now...I would say I will be back soon to blog and hopefully so but with my blogging history this past year I will leave well enough alone for now and just say I will definately try to do better...
