… And Some Things You May Not Know
I tried to include some pictures you may not have seen on the blog this year, so enjoy! I’m only listing a few things per month, as I could write a page about each month’s activities.
January. We celebrated my birthday, postponed John’s due to his traveling, went ice-skating (Nathan and Melanie’s Christmas present), and I started Colorado with the Moodys outline.
February: We celebrated John’s birthday, recorded product videos, and received the exciting news that Joseph and Elissa were expecting.
March: Mary graduated from high school, spring temperatures felt delightful, we launched Titus2 product videos, Lydia was born, and we had a “thank you Mom/Teacher” celebration trip to the zoo.
April: Ahhh. Spring! More projects and celebrating Resurrection Sunday.
May: We enjoyed more indoor and outdoor projects (including Jesse finishing a stand up desk, Mary decorating a wall in the living room, and Joseph pouring his back patio), Sarah launched a Kindle giveaway of Summer with the Moodys and made it in the top 100 free Kindle books on Amazon, and we had multiple family celebrations.
August: We pulled off Mom’s surprise trip to Colorado, and I sent my book to the copyeditor! Mary and Mom both celebrated birthdays in the amazing Colorado mountains.
September: Mary sketched for Colorado with the Moodys, we went on a ministry trip, and GiGi broke her ankle.
October: Calia arrived, we celebrated Jesse’s birthday late, Anna’s birthday on time, my book went to the printer and was completed, the family pulled off a surprise “congratulations on the Moody Series” party, and Dad wrapped up his Business Jump Start course.
November: We had lots to be thankful for as the year wound down, including news of Christopher and Anna Marie’s new baby. The girls also put together many gift shoeboxes for children.
December: What a wonderful way to end the year, with more family times, Christmas surprises, Mary, Joseph, Elissa, and Calia taking a trip to Denver for Operation Christmas Child (report coming later!), and celebrating Jesus’ birth!
We are excited to see what 2016 has in store. Happy New Year!
Sarah for the rest
