Happy New Year!

There is just less than an hour left in the first day of the New Year, and today seems to have past by as quickly as last year did. During dinner, my parents and Larry were talking about how fast 2008 past by. My Mom said, "you just wait, Before you know it, it'll be 2010!"

In reflecting on how much our life has changed this past year, Larry said, "well think about all that has changed in the past 3 years." He's right. our life has been a busy blessing of life, love and change.

We we're just getting engaged in January of 2006, We were married in May 2006 and pregnant with Eden in October 2006. We were blessed with Eden in June of 2007. Larry was in school full time and working full time and finally graduated in December of 2007. Then began the search for a church. God's lead us to Williamston, NC where we know without a doubt, we were called to and love. We moved here in April of 2008 and got pregnant with Josiah in May. Major changes over just a short amount of time.

Larry pulled out the video camera and hooked it up to the TV. We watched life through Eden's life. Our first Christmas married (pregnant with her) Her birth, first few months of life, eating her first foods, her first Christmas and birthday, and this Christmas. I am so amazed at how much she has grown and changed in the past 18 months. She is becoming such an awesome little girl.

2009 will bring the birth of our son and who knows whatever else God will bring. We are blessed beyond all expectations. God has been so good to us!!! So as I sit here reflecting on how life has changed so much and knowing this year will bring challenges, joys and trials, and fun. I'm looking forward to 2009. I hope you are as well :)
****These pictures were taken back in October by my friend Andrea. We used them for our Christmas gifts for our parents and Christmas cards. Our family loved them, so do I. Thanks Andrea!*****
