Another Year Done

Wow, how is it possible that another year has come and gone? Brent and I have come to categorize our memories not by which year something happened but which house we lived in when it did. The house we are in now is the seventh house in our seven years of marriage. Seems impossible. Although we know this isn't the last house we'll live in, I hope that we are a little more settled over the next seven years!

So much has happened in our lives over the past year. Tyler turned two this year and Emmalee turned one. Collin turned thirteen! Now that's just crazy. Brent and I celebrated our seventh anniversary. We finalized both adoptions. We moved from Phoenix to Rochester, no small feat. We've had our share of illnesses, some worse than others. The one Brent has now being on the worse end of the scale. We've watched our kids grow like wild and learn, learn, learn. Tyler has learned to crawl, pull himself up, get all over the house even if he can't walk yet. He has learned to say so many words both vocally and in sign. He has developed the sweetest, funniest personality and he is just a joy to be around. Emmalee learned to crawl, walk, run, climb, run, take her diaper off, take Tyler's diaper off, talk, throw fits and give the best kisses ever, when she'll let you have one. :) She is a ham and does whatever she can to make us laugh. These kids never cease to amaze us. They are so fun to be around and we love watching them and listening to their endless giggles. They have developed a great relationship with each other. Emmalee is very loving and giving to Tyler and Tyler is forever patient with Emmalee. What blessings they are!

2006 has been a good year for us. My hope is that we will all continue to have peace and happiness in the year to come.
