Wow, it seems like we blinked and this year was over with!!! It’s hard to believe that this year is almost over with. But reality is soon we will close the door on 2009 and rush head first into 2010! Our family is excited and ready to meet the challenges that lay ahead for our family but we want to take time to reflect and give thanks on the wonderful year the Lord blessed us with! 2009 found Big Daddy very busy with work and church and keeping up with the kids and making L2L a very happy wife!!!! I’m not sure what I did with this year but know that homeschooling, AWANA, and homemaking have kept me very busy and I feel very blessed with the amazing husband and children I wake up to each morning! I would have to say the biggest highlight of LJ’s year would have to be, hands down, his baptism in the East China Sea on May 31, 2009. He continues to amaze us with his maturity, quick wit and physical ability on wheels daily!! On October 13, 2009 JJ joined us as a family of believers in Christ and I was very blessed to be able to help him in asking Christ into his heart. He has become a soft hearted, comical young boy who loves to ride bikes with his dad and if given the chance would play PS2 ALL day long!! CJ has grown leaps and bounds this year and has an amazing ability to communicate her desires. She can put a smile on anyone’s face and has added dancing to her list of hobbies this year. As we look back at 2009 we feel very blessed by all that has been provided to us and sing praises to God for being our family’s Rock! We pray you have a wonderful New Year and had a Christ filled Christmas!
