2012 in Review
The past year went by so quickly. IT was a year full of so many blessings and a good bit of heartache but I am thankful for it all. To begin the year in Jan. Paige turned 13! My baby girl was now a teenager but she acts way beyond her years, she is so smart and helpful. Levi turned 5, where did my baby boy go. Feb. was Billy and my 11 yr wedding annivesary. That one is hard to believe, so grateful to God for giving me this man. March my sister and I threw my parents a surprise party, they had been married 40 years and also both were turning 60 so we called it a 100 year celebration. That was very fun and we really surprised them!! WE are very thankful for our parents and for the life they have given my sister and I. March also was full of more celebration as Dylan and Dustin turned 15 and Brittani turned 9 ( all that was very shocking too). Dylan and Dustin were born at 32 weeks and weighed 3 and 4 pounds at birth and now they are thriving 15 year old boys that are super smart and I am amazed daily at what they have learned working with their daddy. June was my turned to be surprised!! My husband, oldest daughter and sons, and some sweet young girls from my church pulled together as surprise party for me for my birthday. I was in total shock and very grateful for my family and that of the super church family we have. IT was a great time after experiencing a couple of miscarriages. In August our Issac turned 4 and in September our sweet baby girls Annie and Elizabeth turned 3 and 2. In October was Billy's birthday which we celebrated by having a GA/FL get together as usual but this year we have tons of people here which made it even more special to Billy but since Ga. WON it was a special day for me too ;) Also October brought a very special day in it as our baby boy Jericho turned 1!!! November brought another positive pregnancy test and as of right now I am almost 11 weeks. AFter alot of heartache of 3 miscarriages it is a joy to be expecting and so far baby has looked well. Prayers for a healthy baby in 2013 would be appreciated. 2012 also brought health problems as the reason for my miscarriages was thyroid issues as well as low progesterone which makes you feel horrible. Billy also has a hernia. December brought a fun Christmas season that we celebrated the birth or our Savior Jesus Christ. And now here we are in Jan. 2013. I am hoping for many more blessings this year and the blessing of a healthy baby. Through all the heartache I experienced in 2012 the Lord taught me so much!! Well that is pretty much it! Hope your year was blessed and that the New Year will be even more blessed for you and your family and my hope is that we all turn our hearts to the Lord.
