2011 was full of ups and downs!
But I am so thankful for all the many blessings God gave our family!
We started the year off rough with the loss of my sweet Grandfather, Bobo. He passed away January 15. We miss him so very much but I am so thankful he was able to meet Addison. He is now in no pain and celebrating every holiday and birthday with sweet Jesus!
I celebrated my birthday, my bridesmaids threw me a Bachelorette party, I took my bridal pictures after rescheduling about 3 times because of snow, finished up with our pre-marital counseling and got everything ready for the wedding!
I married the man of my dreams on March 5! Our wedding day was absolutely perfect and being able to share it with Addison was even better! I can not thank God enough for unexpected blessings!
We also were able to take a couple of days to go to St. Louis for our Honeymoon. It may not have been the beach or a cruise but it was perfect! We got to spend time together and that was so important!
We were just getting use to being married, living together and having a baby all at the same time.
We celebrated our 1st Easter- which Addison woke up that morning with a fever so we were not able to go to church or any of our plans that day. My mom had to remind me that this will probably happen often because I was beside myself! haha
I celebrated my 1st mothers day! It was such a special day. Addison was dedicated at church in front of my family. Something I will never forget!
Both Brent and I's brothers graduated from High school and my Grandmother, Mawma, started chemo after finding out she was diagnosed with cancer.
God also answered a huge prayer with Brent getting a new job at Tyson!
We went on our 1st family vacation to Big Cedar in Branson and celebrated Brent's 1st Fathers day at the Tulsa Zoo! We made so many great memories!
We celebrated our 1st 4th of July and Addison HATED the fireworks!
July was a very special month. Brent was baptized on July 31st. I am so thankful to have such a amazing Godly leader for our family!
Addison turned ONE on Aug 2nd!
We had a big party for her on 7th!
I can not thank God enough for blessing Brent and I with her!
I started a new job 2 days a week as a preschool teacher for 2 year old!
It is so much fun and keeps me on my toes!
Was full of parties, parties, and more parties. This was a very busy month!
Halloween, our church put on a carnival so Addison attended as Snow white! :)
We celebrated our 1st Thanksgiving together!
Lets just sum this one up with Celebrating Jesus birthday and Christmas with Family and Friends!
Hope everyone had a great 2011 and may God bless you in the coming year!
For I know the plans I have for you, says the LORD. They are plans for a good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
