Goodbye 2010, Hello 2011!

Happy New Year Friends and Family!

Can I just say how excited I am for 2011? Jeremy and I have been talking about how we both feel it's gonna be a really good year. I'm excited to see all of what God has in store for our family. I know it's gonna be GOOD!

Some of my favorite moments of 2010:

♥ Gracelyn's 1st Birthday. What a joy to see her growing so healthy and strong.
♥ Ethan talking more and more. I'm so thankful.
♥ Moving into our friends rental home. It was a true answer to prayer for us.
♥ Celebrating 7 years of marriage with my hubby. I love you baby!
♥ Ethan turning 2. His party was so fun and filled with lots of family.
♥ Our weekend getaway to Kalahari. America's largest indoor water park. So fun!
♥ Our amazing 1 week beach vacation with my family to Virginia Beach. It rocked.
♥ My friend Bekah getting pregnant. After 3 years of longing to be a mommy, she's gonna be one in March! I'm so happy for her.
♥ My cousin Tara expecting her first baby. So excited for her and Jesse.
♥ Nicole telling me they are pregnant with baby # 2. A day I thought would never happen. I picked up the phone, called her, ran outside and screamed as loud as I could.
♥ 2 successful garage sales at our house.
♥ Play dates at Safari with friends.
♥ Buying an awesome camera.
♥ Pool days with the Maddock's.
♥ My mom calling Elmo "Red Grover". Probably my hardest laugh of the year.

♥ The cards, messages, packages, texts and prayers from my family and friends after my miscarriage. Love you guys.
♥ Developing an even stronger bond with my BZ girls.
♥ Reconnecting with Lisa. An old friend who I loved dearly and made so many amazing memories with. It has warmed my heart to see us back in touch and to know how you're doing.

♥ My mom's reaction to my news. Love you mom, thanks for always being so excited for me.
♥ Jude's reaction to my news. It was fun to tell you and thanks for the long hug!
♥ Multiple people telling me it was strong on their heart I was pregnant. Such a cool way of God telling me that all will be well with this little one.
♥ Tommee Profitt's new CD. His music blesses my life. You really should get a copy if you don't already have one!
♥ Nursing Gracelyn until 16 months. That's something to be proud of!
♥ Both kids sleeping through the night. Usually :)

♥ My dad thinking Barney was a hippo.
♥ Thanksgiving with the Petke's. Love my family!!
♥ Buying our van!!! I was beyond excited and love having a van!
♥ July 4th parade with the kids on our street! So fun. Especially watching my dad grab as many tootsie rolls as he could. Ha.

And most of all, being loved by an amazing God. He's so good. So faithful. I'm thankful for 2010. Despite the hard times it brought - it was still filled with so many good memories and blessings. My heart is full of hope and joy leading into 2011 and I can't wait to see all the good things God has planned for our family.
