Happy New Year!!

My, oh my, what a year we have had. I must say that 2010 has been quite the wonderful year. We are blessed beyond belief. We are blessed day in and day out by our wild woman. She keeps us on our toes and is so entertaining. You can't help but smile or laugh while observing her or playing with her. Katie is most definitely "feisty" - the first word the doctor used to describe her. She is loving. She is hot-tempered from time to time. She is perfect.

This year Brad passed the CPA exam! That is such a huge accomplishment and I'm so very proud of him.

I'm still working my 16 hours a week from home. Sometimes it is very hard, but it is so rewarding and I love what I do.

We experienced the whirlwind of putting our house on the market, finding a new house, and moving into the new house. Our hold house selling after 4 days on the market was definitely God's work. And our new house is perfect. It is much more convenient to Brad's work and we enjoy having the extra space. I will admit that I do miss our old house - we had such great, important memories there. It was our first house as a married couple. It's where we brought Sadie home. It's where we set up Katie's nursery and brought her home. We lived a mile from Brad's mom (which we definitely miss!)....but I can't wait to have great memories here in the new house.

And of course, living in middle Tennessee, I can't mention 2010 without mentioning The Flood in May. It is still hard to fathom the devastation that was experienced during that disaster. As we were driving around Opryland Hotel looking at lights, I had to keep telling myself that all of that was under water. Unbelievable. I love the spirit that the city of Nashville and others across the state have - supportive, determined, and solid. Three words sum it up best - WE ARE NASHVILLE.

This year and last year I made photo collages of Katie and our family to give everyone. I thought this year's turned out quite cute. Our family in 2010. I think it will be neat to do one each year and be able to look back at all of them and see how our family grows and changes.

Many blessings for the new year - should be a great one! I can't wait to see what 2011 brings us - I'd love it to bring another kiddo, but only time will tell! (And no, to answer the question going through your head right now, I'm not pregnant!) We will be ringing in 2011 with some of our neighbors! Should be interesting - great food, good people, and I hear there may be some karaoke involved. From our family to yours, Happy New Year!!!!
