Quickly, 2007: A Year in Review

I started a post review of the year but got quite bogged down in lengthiness. So here's attempt #2.
2007: The Year that Was

Major themes: travel (Utah, California, Pennsylvania, New York, Canada), baby (a whole pregnancy all in one year), medical issues, weddings, projects, new job
Joining our family: Travis, Kiree, and Jen
Accomplishments: going to the temple weekly in August (mostly), September, and October; completing many, many projects before Kiree's arrival (including finishing painting our room, painting the bathroom, kitchen, outside trim and doors, and the railings); crochet and ballet; a much smoother delivery for baby number 2 and much better first 7 weeks- Thank you Thank you Mom R!; surviving pre-Christmas travel.

We were very blessed this year! We were able to spend some time with far away family members more than once this year. We got to go to some fun places. We got a new used 2nd car and a new, better paying job. Although there were several challenges that came up during my pregnancy we were blessed by the power of prayer. Thank you so much to the family and friends who prayed for us! We're so grateful the Lord answered our prayers in the way we had hoped He would. I'm also very grateful for the peace I received during the very difficult times. Kiree is a sweetheart and we all love her very much.

Happy New Year everyone! Bring on 2008! I've already got a list of stuff to do :)
