DONE!

Today is a very, very happy day. I am done with school... FOREVER! :-) Forever seems like a very long time. I probably should never say never but it is almost 99% for surely. For those of you still fighting the good school fight... GO FOR IT! :-) You can do it!!


I finished my last final this morning and it was my hardest class... LOGIC. Ugh, I thought it was going to be terrible. It actually turned out to be okay! :-) Yes! I love when that happens!

This week is like calm before the storm for us as we enter this weekend and Christmas! I am excited so don't get me wrong... I love Christmas time and all that comes with it. It is just that for someone (me) who is SUCH a planner it just messes with my mind sometimes. That is why I am thankful for GRACE!

"Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need." Hebrews 4:16


Tonight is our second annual COOKIE PAINTING! My mama hosts this fun event for our growing family to come together.... Just the ladies! This time Jonna's future in-laws and our friends the Cross's will be joining us, minus Bre. WE WILL MISS YOU BRE!!


I will be sure to post photos from this years adventure. Its so crazy to look back and think about how much has changed since last year at this time! :-) It is only a testimony to the Lord's faithfulness!
