FC: Our Family Memories December 2009 - December 2010
1: It has been a wonderful year for our family. It started out a little crazy moving out of our house, living with Grandma and Grandpa while we fixed up our "yellow house", moving in on February 7th and going to the hospital to have Luke on February 10th. My wonderful parents helped us and took care of us so much during that stressful time. We were so blessed to bring home our sweet baby boy. He has made us so happy. His sisters adore him. We love being back at the "yellow house". Clara turned 2 and Kaylee turned 5. Kaylee also started kindergarten. It has been a great year full of blessings. We sure wish our little ones would slow down a little bit. I just wish we could freeze them right now and they wouldn't grow up any more. They are each so precious. We love our family life. It is what makes us happy. It is simple and beautiful and perfect. Nothing in the world even comes close to making us as happy as our three little miracles. We are so lucky to be blessed with such angels. Life is good!
