2015 has been a busy year and we have been very blessed! I want to take a moment and list some of the memories made and family changes that occurred this past year.
In January we visited T’s sister and her family who live a few hours from us. The reason she’s standing in front of so much ammo is because we went to Cabella’s!
My husband’s brother T proposed to A and I put on a bridal shower for her.
In February they got married…
and I found out I was expecting another baby!
In March I put on a barnyard themed party for E’s 2nd birthday and we took a trip to Colorado.
In April, we got our first glimpse of the new little life inside me.
In May, we said happy 4th heavenly birthday to our firstborn son Titus who passed away at birth. We sent gifts to our sponsor children in his memory.
We also found out we were expecting another boy!
In June we celebrated 5 years of marriage,
and my sister in law and I put on a bridal shower for my husband’s sister.
Father’s day I announced that I was naming our baby boy after my husband.
In July I traveled with E to Connecticut for my brothers wedding then flew back just in time for T’s sister’s wedding
July also brought us the scary news that our baby had a heart defect and may need surgery after birth.
In August, we had a nephew born and Ella started music classes at ACME and I started going through the Teaching Mama curriculum with her.
In September we praised God that the baby’s heart defect had corrected itself! We took a trip with all our nieces and nephews and their parents who live in the state to Blanchard Springs Caverns.
September and the beginning of October was filled with doctor appointments and non stress tests as my high risk pregnancy got more complicated towards the end.
October brought us a healthy baby boy born early on October 16. He had a rough start and we spent 5 nights with him in the NICU before getting to go home.
November, my dad flew down to visit us from out of state and we ended up back in the hospital when baby T spiked a fever.
Thanksgiving we were all healthy and got to celebrate the holiday at my in-laws in their barn.
December, T started a special project at work and we are enjoying a break from night shift!
Phew! What a year! It was filled with blessings along with some challenges that caused us to focus our eyes on the Lord and trust Him.
I’m excited to start 2016!
