Hey y'all! With 2012 quickly approaching and 2011 being over soon I've been reliving some of the memories and pictures and wanted to share a few.
First...just a few BIG moments and extra special memories from this year:
-Thaddeus proposed and we began planning our April wedding
-Traveled to Ecuador for a mission trip with our church.
We lived in the jungle in straw huts & bathed in the river for a week
and shared the love of Jesus with the people there.
It was an amazing experience and I can't wait to go back! :)
-Graduated from Dental Assisting school
-Met Casting Crowns and attended their concert!
VERY exciting for Thaddeus & I because they're our favorite worship band!
-Thaddeus started leading worship
& officially became the worship pastor on staff
-My last Christmas 'at home'.
This may not be a big deal to most people,
but knowing that next year I won't be waking up with Jordan
at 5am & spending Christmas morning with my family is kinda scary.
Can't wait for Thaddeus and I to start our own Christmas traditions though
And now for the pictures...it's quite a load.
