This past year went by quickly. The kids are growing fast. God has been good to us. Here are some highlights of our year.

In March, Lexi and I went to Missouri for my niece, Brittany’s wedding. We really enjoyed our time there and even got to go together to the American Girl Store in St. Louis and have lunch at the Bistro. Lexi got her dolls hair done.

After Christmas we returned to Texas. We got to spend an evening with Gary’s mom, and take her out to eat. It was great having the time. I learned so much about why she named her kids-what she did. (But that is another story!)

We spent the last 4 days of the year at Moon River Ranch. This was a leadership retreat for Genesis Pure. We were humbled and honored to be invited to attend it. Our family had a great time. We learned a lot, and we met some great people!
