Happy 2010!

Wow!  The first week of the new year and I'm already way behind!!!  We had a busy couple weeks with the holidays.  The kids had a nice long winter break and were ready to get back to the school routine.  Well...MOST of them were ready!  We had a great break though!  We spent tons of time together, had a few basketball games, lots of late nights, a few movies,  and we celebrated Hunter's 15th birthday!  For his birthday all he wanted was the driver's manual so he could study and get his learner's permit.  (He had no idea it was free!)  Nicki was more than happy to fill that request for him...with one small hitch...she took out all the pages and replaced them with pictures that she and Tanner drew.  It was hilarious!  The look on Hunter's face was priceless!!!  Nicki later redeemed herself with the actual pages and a case of Vanilla Coke.  Jordan had surgery over the break right before Christmas.  She's doing great, feeling better, and she can breathe again!!!

As we looked back on 2009, we were overwhelmed with the many blessings we received this past year and have so many things to be grateful for.  At the top would have to be my testimony of the gospel and our family.  I would be lost without either one.  I'm convinced I have the best husband and kids in the world!  And what a gift it is to know that our family can be together forever.  We're so very grateful for the blessings we've received as a family in sending Lance on a mission.  It's been absolutely wonderful to see him grow these last few months and to see missionary work in action.  It's been exciting to watch those tender in the gospel blossom and grow in just a few short months.

We're looking forward to 2010 and hope and pray it's one of the best years ever for everyone!
