~*Year in Review*~

I thought of doing a review of the *Top Ten Blog Posts* but, honestly, I just don't have the energy to right now! 

We're working through another round of illness (fun stuff!) and I'm tired of being sick...after 4 rounds of antibiotics in the last 2 months for me alone I am not a happy flu camper!  

The Lord blessed us beyond words this year! We completed our China* adoption by bringing home these two amazing little ones! 

We added the surprise of baby Donosaur!  Oh my, I was NOT expecting to add 3 at once, AGAIN! The Lords plans are the best and Donosaur is such a sweet little surprise blessing! 

Our Sunshine has struggled more this year than ever and we look forward to 2013 and what that means for healing his heart

Kitty and J.J. have grown and matured so much this year. It blows me away their compassion and love! They fight over who gets to hold the baby, they lovingly help with the littles, and have truly learned what servant leadership is.  They are light years ahead of where I was at their age.

Peanut went from being the baby to being such a big girl and stunned us all by potty training in ONE day! She turns 3 in Feb. and I'm so not ready!

Devin and I are madly in love! 
We get about one date every 4-6 months and we try to make the most of the moments we do get alone.  We wouldn't trade it for the world, though!  We desired to be surrounded by a great number of little blessings! 

We look forward to what 2013 has to bring our family...and we look toward the Lord to put our family on the proper path!

  Psalm 16:11
You make known to me the path of life;
    you will fill me with joy in your presence,
    with eternal pleasures at your right hand. 



  1. I know that God will continue to bless your wonderful family! I pray for no more sickness and for sunshine to do a lot better! Surprisingly my anxiety hasn't been much of an issue since we arrived here. I think exercise is helping and we already knew some people here is helping also. God bless!

  2. You have a beautiful family!
