Highlights of 2010

Today is a slow and sleepy day for us, so I took this opportunity to look back through my whole blogging year.  What a year it's been!  I'll try not to drag this out too long, but I thought I would cruise through just a few things that made this year extra special and a clear sign of God's blessings in our life.

Our year started out with a bang. Our fourth beautiful daughter was born mid January and has brought nothing but pure joy to our family!

There have been several new beginnings this year.  February brought the union of my sister Mary to her wonderful husband Peter,

and now, their family has grown even again as we all welcomed to the world this week our very first NEPHEW Caleb Jerry. Did you hear that?  They still make boys around here!  This little man has stolen our hearts!

We were able to celebrate again this Fall as David's brother Benjamin married his beautiful bride Melissa.
Having Benjamin and Melissa live near us these last few months have been a joy and we are going to miss them soooooo much as they move to WA for seminary!
Not long after having Melissa join the family, we were blessed to meet the next beautiful girl to soon become a King. 

Andrew met the love of his life down at college and we have been DELIGHTED to get to know dear Hannah more.  They are planning a summer wedding and we could not be happier to watch what the Lord is doing in their lives!

Some of the blessings have not been as clearly defined.

Most were just a part of every day life,

But they were all special nonetheless!

Being the parents of our girls is more of a blessing than I ever could have imagined, and it only gets better every day!

Oh yes, and then there is this guy!

It amazes me to look at this past year, see where we are now and say with all my heart, as honest as can be, I love this man more than I ever have in my life.  He's amazing. A M A Z I N G.  I cannot even begin to tell you.  Not only is he the man I respect more than any man alive, he's the man who holds my heart.   Completely.

2011 looks good. 

I know that there will be many surprises.  Some so good they will blow my socks off.  Some so bad they could break my heart.  But my God is good!  And 2011 is in His hands!
