What a wonderful year we have had! When I look back at this past year I know my Heavenly Father has blessed our family so much. It started with Paul getting a job at Kennecott. What a tremendous blessing! The Lord answers prayers and is so mindful of us.
We have had some "ups".Alexis was baptized last January. What an amazing experience that was! We have had many mini vacations as a family this year and we continue to grow closer and stronger together. Some of our favorites was when Lexi danced at the Stadium Of Fire over the Fourth of July. What a fun experience that was for her and for us! Cherry Hills is also favorite!
We also had some "downs". My mom gave us all a scare after she had surgery. She was at home and went into full cardiac arrest in her room- alone. Thanks to my dad he had a feeling that something wasn't right and checked on her. He called 911 and my sister finally revived her right before the paramedics came. I don't know what I would have done or tremble to even think what I would do without her. Again, our Heavenly Father loves us and is mindful of us. The other down is my children are growing up too fast. Can't we freeze time for just awhile. Sadly, my baby Lily will be four this coming year. I can't believe my baby era is officially over. But on the bright side ----no more diapers and middle-of-the-night feedings! Yay! Oh, I have one more "down", this year's Presidential Election. Boo! That's all I'm going to say on that matter.
I have much hope for 2009. I have a feeling it's going to be a great one-lots of learning, laughing, and loving!
We want to wish you all a wonderful upcoming year. One with love, happiness, good health, friendship, and hope for the future. May the Lord bless you in all you do!
