This year has been a whirlwind of amazing events for our family! I’m happy to share them with you, as well as the top posts on The Momma Knows for 2013.
Our family has grown, secondarily! We’re all done “having kids” but let me tell you, that didn’t seem to slow the growth very much!
Our youngest daughter got married in March, adding a new son to our family. He’s in the Air Force, and they are stationed in New Mexico now.
My husband and I just celebrated our 19th anniversary, and we’re adjusting to having a nearly empty nest. Actually, we are really ENJOYING just having the boys at home. 🙂 This is the first time in our marriage we’ve ever had fewer than 3 kids!
Our middle daughter had a baby in May, bringing us a new granddaughter. Then our oldest daughter had a baby in June, adding another granddaughter! (Both are shown below.)
Our oldest son and his wife also had a baby less than two weeks ago, giving us a grandson! This brings us up to a grand total of SIX (so far) grandkids! We’re loving it.
I also got to meet my favorite author, Ted Dekker, in November. He was very nice, funny, and man can this guy preach. Here is a video (which is actually two clips) that I took while he was speaking. If you haven’t read his newest book Outlaw yet, you should. It’s about some of the things he spoke of this night.
If you have a chance to get in on one of the last dates for the Outlaw Tour, check out Ted Dekker. He’ll blow your mind. If he doesn’t already with his writing. 🙂
It has been such a creative and colorful year!
