Referral Anniversary

We celebrated our 1 year anniversary of seeing Emma's picture for the first time on January 4. She has grown so much since we first received this picture. She is such a beautiful child. She is so full of life. We thank God each day for sending this special baby to our family.

Moving, Christmas, Snow Days, Best Wishes for 2008

The past month has been a speedy blur. We closed on our old and new house on December 7. We began moving into our new house on December 13. We finally have everything from both houses either in storage or at our new house. We still have LOTS of boxes to unpack, but we are finally done packing and moving so much stuff!
We had a wonderful Christmas holiday. Curt and I celebrated 12 years of marital bliss on December 23. We went to the mall to finish our shopping and had a slice of pizza for dinner. LOL. My brother, Tim, and his wife, Katy, came home from Colorado for a visit. We really enjoyed getting to spend some quality time with both of them. The time just went too quickly! We were once again blessed with a wonderful Christmas. It was such a delight to watch the girls open thier gifts. Christmas brings magic alive in a child's eyes.
We got two extra days of vacation due to a big snow. The girls spent some time outside playing in the snow. Emma wasn't really sure what to expect when she went down the hill with me on the sled. She didn't like the snow blowing back in her face. Darya had a great time especially when Curt brought home a new sleek sled. We had a couple of near death experiences zooming down the big hill!
We hope everyone has a blessed new year in 2008. While we never know what will happen at any moment, we trust in God's grace. We thank Him for His abundant love. Happy New Year!
