Lets just say it is not easy to ponder all that God has done this past year. It reminds me of a scripture in Isaiah.
I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake;
And I will not remember your sins. Put Me in remembrance;
Let us contend together;
State your case, that you may be acquitted.
Though it is difficult. It is healthy to be overwhelmed by the blessings God has bestowed upon us. May we remember Him and celebrate His gift of life this upcoming new year!

With the arrival of our little Hadassah, God has changed a lot in our family. I have a renewed perspective on motherhood and childbearing (yes, we want more little blessings.) Sean himself has a passion to biblically lead our family, so we can grow closer to God with each other. We only have the kids in our care for such a short time and without further ado, here is a little snippet into their life...
Elijah Jo will be turning 10 next month! Ahh!! I am amazed. The first official child with a double digit. Mr. Jo had an eventful year. He celebrated his last birthday with his first sleepover, got over his fear of water, read the Lord of the Rings Trilogy!!!, took Basketball Basics class, and recently scored 2nd place in a 1k race. What a champ. I love this boy to pieces. He continues to politely correct me on my spelling and english. Especially with bible names! He is very aware God has given him an incredible gift of drawing. A day would not be complete without some form of art work. His drawing won a Holiday Contest in the Gazzette Times December 22! Good job Buddy!

Oh Jason Jon my big boy, turned 4 in July! Jason is known to have two speeds. First: when he is awake. Second: when he is asleep. The house would just not be the same without his loud voice! It is very important one hears his entire conversation/story no matter how long it takes him to get it out!! This year Jason learned how to ride a bike and dive underwater. We often say he has no fear. God protected him from loosing a tooth and hurting his head in three big accidents (maybe I will blog them later). We are happy he is safe! Jason is learning his alphabet, shapes and numbers. He is still my cuddle boy.. when I can slow him down :)
