2011 has been an amazing year for Brian and me.
In January, I was able to re-connect with some high school friends. Somehow they stumbled upon my blog and it's been great catching up with them. Also, I posted that life was really good. Brian and I both felt that 2011 was going to be a big year for us and we were both excited to see what God was going to do.
In February, I started documenting 1000 gifts/blessings. Somehow, at some point I stopped doing that. I am going to re-start that again this year. It's always so good to stop and think about all the blessings in your life. I need it now more than ever when I'm exhausted and life seems so hard.
In March, we found out we were pregnant and ecstatic! It took me a long time to realize it was true. Also, we had a visit from some of our Indiana friends - Brad and Sheri and Josh and Julie Julie. We love them so much!
In April, we announced we were pregnant. I can't even begin to thank everyone for all the prayers they have prayed for us.
In May, I turned the big 3-0 and Brian and my parents threw me a surprise birthday party. We also went camping with some of our Indiana friends.
In June, we spent a week in Houston to celebrate my brother-in-law Chris' wedding. We had the best time!
In July, we spent the 4th of July in Indiana and re-connected with some California friends. I love summer!
In August, we welcomed our first niece - Jasmine. She is so precious! Such a happy baby. We also decided on the name Hudson. Also, I started getting a little more involved on face book and have enjoyed rekindling some friendships.
In September, we celebrated Brian turning the big 3-5 by meeting our some of our friends and spending the weekend camping. I also had multiple baby showers. I felt so loved at all of the showers.
In October, our dear friends Josh and Julie adopted a precious baby girl - Kaitlyn. What an awesome answer to prayer. Our sweet Compassi0n girl turned 10. I had two more showers.
In November God blessed us tremendously with the birth of our son Hudson. We have prayed and longed for a child for so long. We can never thank God enough for our precious little boy. Our parents were able to come down here for about a week. It was so...good seeing them and having them here. We had the best Thanksgiving.
In December, we celebrated 5 years of marriage. I love my husband so much -every year just keeps getting better. We were also able to travel to Indiana for a week and spend time at both our parent's houses. I will try and blog about that later. Christmas was extra special this year - even if we were/are exhausted.
I had to post a picture of this little sweetie
I love having a blog/journal so that I can look back and remember everything.
God is good and He does answer prayers! We're so excited to see what God has in store for us for 2012.
