Before I get to the recap, allow me to share our Christmas card with you. I just sent it out, (I used to have a master list but this year I had to redo it so it took awhile to get all the addresses). I love it! (from Shutterfly)
Every year I make a Shutterfly book for that year, and I am so thankful that I thought to start this little tradition. For this year's recap I will share some of my pages.
Last year on my recap, I wrote:
What does 2010 hold for us? In April we are celebrating 3 years with an AMAZING trip to New England which we are both SOOO excited about! Paul will turn 30!!! And kids... well ever since 2007, I have been writing about adopting in the new year to come. This year may actually be THE year, but I have learned one thing from my looking back- it really is all up to Him, and I am happy with whatever He has planned for my life.
So without further adieu, here was our 2010:
There are obviously more pages to this book, but I put a few for you to get an idea. :)
I am so thankful that God chose 2010 to finally be the year we became parents! Our marriage grew even stronger, (by the Grace of God), and we fell more in love with our furry child.
What does 2011 hold? Our 4th anniversary, Sweetpea's adoption, my baby sister graduates high school and will go off to college, I'll turn 25, the 5 year anniversary of my sister's Home going, and possibly another adoption. We are still waiting on our little Nemo- hopefully we will get more news on Monday. This waiting for him has been frustrating to say the least. I know God is sovereign- I just want some answers already!
God has blessed us abundantly and graciously and we are so thankful. We look forward to 2011 and pray that we will glorify Him in all that we do in the new year.
Happy New Year!
