This year has been a blast!

I can't believe that we are already to the end on November. This year is going by way to fast. I thought that I would share some of the highlights that have happened to our family in the past year. There have been some really great things that have happened to us.

In Jan we started off a great year in our house and have loved being here. Not much happened in Feb and Mar. In April I got transferred to the Walmart that is only 5 min from home instead on 30. In May Joe received a great compliment from work... they love what he does so they give him a big fat raise. We celebrated kids birthdays and our anniversary all in May. In June I got pregnant but didn't know that I was. In July we went to Silverwood and had a wonderful family day at the amusement park, we also welcomed a new addition to the family our nephew Kade. Joe decided that he is ready for a change in his life and quits smoking. YEAH! We also start saying our family prayers on a regular basis and studying the scriptures as a family more consistently. It's neat to see the difference in the way our family acts toward each other. In Aug wasn't feeling all that great took a pregnancy test and yep, we're going to have another baby. We also got to go and spend 10 days in Alaska with half of Joe's siblings. Sept school starts YEAH! Mom gets to have quiet time, well a little quiet time. Cordin takes soccer and discovers that he actually likes it, and is pretty good too. Gabbie loves school and accelerates at everything that she is doing. Joe finds out the his job is pretty secure...phew. In Oct Joe turns 35. In Nov we celebrate Gideons 2ND birthday and find out the same day that we are having another girl. Cordin is baptised by his dad which is really cool. All of my siblings are able to make it except for Ben who was playing in the Apple Cup, which they won in overtime. Baby starts moving a lot. She is very active. I'm sure that Dec will bring lots of fun too.

Thinking back through the year I have realized just how blessed we have been. With everything that is going on in the world we have really been watched out for and taken care of. I am so grateful for the blessings that I have and that my family have been given. I don't know where we would be if we didn't have a loving Heavenly Father that watches over us and protects us. I would truly be ungrateful if I didn't acknowledge that all I have has come from Him. I hope that we will all take the time to thank those that need our thanks, and love those that need our love. I love you all and wish you a happy and safe holiday season.

Cordin got baptised on the 22nd. It was really nice to have my family there. It was even better that Joe got to be the one to baptise him. He was really excited that his dad got to do it. It was a great day.
