Lots of Catching up to do!!

Well, hello there blog. Have you missed us, it has been awhile.

Well, all good have to come to an end. We are getting ready to say goodbye to Dustin's sabbatical in about a week. Dustin has been at CCV for almost 9 years now and was due for a break. So starting Nov 1, he was off for 2 months. We have had SO much fun with Daddy home and all kinds of free time. We spent most of our days together as a family and had a blast. We stayed in a local hotel for a week, took a trip to Flagstaff for another week, then went to Payson to visit Dustin's mom, then back over to Flagstaff with some friends. We came home a few weeks before Christmas and Dustin surprised me with a trip to New York City. It was a dream of mine to go there and I have been beggin him for years to take me. We left the kids home with family and friends and enjoyed 4 days alone in the big city. It was AMAZING and so so much fun!! It was the greatest Christmas present ever.

Now Christmas is over, though it was such a wonderful time I am happy that the madness is in the past and we can really focus on how amazing God truely is!! Our life will go back to normal in a few days and I am thankful for our "normal". God has given Dustin a job he absolutely loves and has given us these two amazing little people we call Kyla and Strius that I still get to spend my days with. So as we say farewell to the sabbatical, we are also so excited to live the life God has given us and can't wait to see what else he has in store for us.

We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and wish you a good new year!!
