What We Did in 2010

    A look back...
  • I was preggers!!
  • We went on a Baby Moon to Gatlinburg. 
  • I had a million eye surgeries.  
  • Spent the first 2 months of the year laying on the couch.
  • We moved to a new house and sold our old one.
  • My dad got sick and I had never been so scared in my life.
  • I finally realized my dad was not invincible.
  • Lost a Grandmother and an Aunt
  • Did LOTS of EXTRA praying...
  • Did lots and lots of Thanking...
  • Paid off my car!
  • Had our first baby!!
  • It was a million degrees outside
  • Lost a lot of sleep.
  • Carter had his 1st birthday!
  • We built a garage
  • Went on our first vacation with Reagan
  • Zac finally got of the night shift 
  • Lost all my baby weight then gained 15 back thanks to my eye and steroids.  (Nice)
  • Made new friends just to find out they were moving to Kentucky.  :(
  • Lost my job
  • Got a temporary job thanks to my dad
  • Zac's dad got sick and we got scared again.
  • Had our very first white Christmas and our first one with Reagan.

We had some good times and some bad this year but I think the one good thing out weighs ALL the bad ones.  We are SO blessed and I thank God everyday for that.  Everything happens for a reason and I can't wait to see what he has in store for us in 2011!  Happy New Year guys!!!

So This Is (was) Christmas.....

And what have we done?..... Well there was this...

which is my absolute favorite Christmas pic of all time!!

And this....

Lots and lots of presents...

A good bit of this for the first time EVER...

A lot of this as well for Reagan...

And plenty of this....time with family

Oh and definitely plenty of this....mmm cake.....

We had a great Christmas!!  It was amazing!  I still can't believe it snowed here!  Zac got me a Brave Love necklace from Lisa Leonard Designs.  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!  This is it here...Brave Love.  It has all of our names at the bottom.  Sorry, I haven't gotten a pic of it yet!  I absolutely LOVE it!!!  Did I say that already?  Reagan got everything she needed plus more.  Santa brought her an excersaucer and a taggie blanket that she loves as well.  Santa didn't go overboard this year because he figured everybody else would.  He was right.  :)  I got Zac a Brew Your Our Beer kit which he loves.  Boy, I can't wait for that!  It makes 5 gallons at a time.  Nice.  My mom and dad surprised me with a laptop.  I was so shocked that I cried.  I just wasn't expecting to get something like that.  Don't you just love surprises!  They also got us a Handy Cam which is awesome.  We already have plenty of videos to share.  Aren't you excited.  I think we got everything we had hoped for. 

Most of all we took time to remember the reason for Christmas.  Our savior was born!  We read the story straight from the bible.  That is my favorite part!   Of course Reagan doesn't understand it all right now but she will in time.  What I think is important is that we start our own traditions and teach her the real reason for Christmas.  It's not about toys and what we get its about Jesus.  Hopefully one day she will love to read it too.

I hope everybody had a wonderful Christmas!!
