Where have we been?

I have not blogged in... well almost a year. Time has really just escaped me and we have SO much going on all the time making it really hard to get on here and post.

In the time since I have last posted we have had a lot of changes. In September Gibson celebrated his 4th birthday! I cant believe he is 4 and will be 5 in only 5 short months. My baby is about to be a "little kid", not even a toddler anymore.
Later in September Chad was also diagnosed with high-functioning Autism. It was a diagnosis I knew was coming, but was still hard to hear. I know that both of my boys have lots of struggles ahead of them, but I also know we were given these two amazingly Autistic boys for a very special reason! We may not know it yet, but we will one day.
Gerod celebrated his 30th... yes you heard right... 30th birthday! Old man! We had a GREAT party with all of our friends and we were able to celebrate Gerod and how wonderful we all think he is. It was a great night! So excited to see what 30 brings for this amazing man of mine.
We celebrated our first Christmas without my grandpas. It was very different than past years, but we tried to make it as normal as possible. We were able to remember things about them and how amazing it was to have had them with us as long we did.
Gerod and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary. Amazing how time flies! It seems like just yesterday we were heading to the chapel to get married! He is such a great husband and amazing Daddy. I couldn't have asked for anyone better!
On Valentines Day Gerod and I celebrated 10 years since our very first date! Again, I am awestruck at how quickly time passes us by. I look forward to MANY more years to come.

And that brings me to today... no special day or anything... just the day I saw someone post about people who stop blogging and I thought... I need to start doing that again. What a wonderful outlet for my feelings as well as a great way to document the things our little family goes through.
I know we have many things in store for the years to come and I cant wait to get back into blogging to keep track of ALL the things we do as a family.

Here are our recent family pics by a friend of mine: Neely Jacobson.
