2010 In Pictures

“But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:31

Afternoon, folks!

As I have been going about my day I have been thinking about something profound to write about on this last day of 2010. 

I thought about it during my 7 mile run this morning,

                                       while I was reading blogs,

during my nap,

and while we were taking down the Christmas tree.

After much thinking, I decided that I would do a year in pictures.  Enjoy!

It’s funny, I actually thought this post would be rather quick to write…just going back and picking and choosing a few pictures to represent each month.  Ha!  It has turned out to be anything OTHER than quick!  Every time I opened a new file of pics I found myself browsing through them and reminiscing with whoever was standing closest to me as I was writing.  Sheesh…it has taken forever!  So I hope you’re REALLLLYYYY enjoying this!  Heehee, it has been made with love. Smile

Oh!  And to our family and friends, you just read our Christmas letter! LOL I didn’t send out cards or letters this year because I just couldn’t find the time, but here you go, this sums 2010 up perfectly for us!

As for this last day of 2010, we are laying low this evening.  Zachary is going to a lock in for the church, Katie is playing at a friend’s house for the evening, and Tyler is hanging with us ol’ parents and ordering pizza.  You know you’re crossing over when your kids have a more active social life than you do! 

But seriously, I am LOVING having busy, healthy, active kids and being a busy, HEALTHY, active mom to do it all. This is the first new year’s eve in awhile that I am not recovering from something…2008 was spent at Barnes-Jewish in STL because Tiff and I were having chemo together, and 2009 I was recovering from my hysterectomy.  This year is much better!  We are going to keep this going!

May God richly bless and keep you and your family in 2011!
