Once all of our Christmas festivities were over, it was time to set our sights on rounding out 2016 and ringing in the new year. Guys I've read a lot of people writing about how they were so excited to see 2016 end and how the year was awful, blah blah ... and to be honest ... I'm right there with them.
I had a lot of personal growth this year and for that I am thankful, but if I could have had a way to grow without experiencing all we had to go through I'd be okay with that too :) And just when I thought the year was all over and done with ... my kiddos spiked 103 fevers AGAIN, and Lainey decided to become an Olympic diver and use the Target shopping card as her diving board. Which landed us in the ER for a good portion of Tuesday night. Bennett was so sick he fell asleep in my lap and thank goodness she's okay ... but geeZe! We snuggled the kiddos tight that night and said lots of thank you prayers. But goodness ... dear 2016 - BYE FELICIA!

Also - I'd like to ask you for some personal prayers today. I'm heading back into surgery for a spot they have found on my face/right hairline :( it's not melanoma as far as we know - but it is pre-melanoma, so they are treating it as such and removing it with some decent margins. So we'd appreciate the extra thoughts and prayers our way as we recover this weekend!
And with that, let's raise a toast and cheers to 2017! May it bring health and happiness to all!
