According to Us

One Husband, One Wife, Five Children and Everything in Between

I don’t know about you, but I think this was the FASTEST year ever!! I’ve said this before, this year has been a year of big changes and transitions for our family. I have hardly blogged at all. It started out as an accident, but as the year went on, I felt it was necessary. This year started out with the surprising news that we were having baby #5. My mother-in-law, brother-in-law, and sister-in-law all moved half way across the states to where we live, and my father found out, fought, and won a battle with stage four throat cancer. WHEW! What a year!

To close it out, I thought the best way to recap this year was with photos from each month. Each picture was chosen to represent the month as a whole, and to remind myself to make everyday count in the coming year.

Happy New year to you, and may it be filled with many good memories and blessings, even in hard and difficult times!!!
