Until Tomorrow...

I have so many things I need to blog about! However, tonight I am going to spend some time with my wonderful husband (while the kids watch a movie upstairs). Katelyn is sick. She has been running 102 fever since Thursday. I think I am going to take her into the sick clinic at her peds office tomorrow. Anyway, my point is that I will be staying home with her during church tomorrow so maybe I will have some time to sit down and blog. So, until tomorrow...I have a poem for you! I have had this since I was a teenager and it hangs on my bulletin board in my kitchen. This poem has helped me through many difficult times and I hope it helps you too!

This was the first time Tayler folded her arms for prayer all by herself!


I know not by what methods rare
But this I know God answers prayer.
I know that He has given His word
Which tells me prayer is always heard.
And will be answered, soon or late,
And so I pray and calmly wait.
I know not if the blessings sought
Will come just in the way I thought.
But leave my prayers with Him alone
Whose will is wiser than my own.
Assured that He will grant my quest
Or send some answer far more blessed.

We had a fabulous New Year celebration! We went next door to our neighbor's house. They have become our extended family! It was a fun-filled night! We all gathered around to watch the ball drop and then lots of hugs and kisses! :)


Kehli was diagnosed with ITP (lots of hospital visits)
(she is doing really well right now)
Check this and this out

Kehli got glasses!

We made a trip out to Idaho this summer and SURPRISED Rich's parents with a visit.
We had a BLAST!!

Brittaney got braces

I was diagnosed with skin cancer and had surgery!

Brittaney turned Sweet 16

Katelyn, Brenden, and Kehli started gymnastics and the LOVE it!

Christopher started Taekwondo and he LOVES it!

Kehli and I ran a 5K together...and I survived!

Rich finished school in August and had his graduation ceremony in December!
(You are AWESOME BABE---We are so PROUD of you!!)

We have had a fun, crazy, busy year. I am thankful for my family and for the love that we share and for the fun that we have together. We have made so many fun memories this year. As we move into the new year, I hope that this year will be full of even more fun memories and hopefully less hospital visits. I hope that each of you had a wonderful 2009 and that your 2010 is even better. Thank you for being a part of my life! I feel so blessed to have such wonderful family and friends! I love you all!
