2008 was Great

Wow I can't believe that another year has flown by. There have been so many good things that have happened in 2008.
We started off the year pregnant for the 2nd time and praying that Russ would be able to get a new job at a different school. Our prayers were answered and Russ got a job at a brand new middle school that is near our house! His commute is so much shorter now, it is so nice. The spring came and we were so anxious to go to Utah to surprise my grandparents on their 50th wedding anniversary. While we were there we got to see family that we haven't seen in years! It was so great! We were counting down the months and days until Daphnee would be here. In June McKaylee turned 1! We had a small party for her and she got to eat lots of cake. School was out so Russ took some odd jobs just to supplement our income. During that time he re-injured his herniated disk, so he wasn't feeling that great! August came and I was so ready to have my baby. Russ had started at his new job plus he was getting ready to start his first semester at UNT ( Go Mean Green) talk about a stressful time. Daphnee was 2 days late but she came in a hurry! Only after 2 1/2 hours in labor my sweet little girl came into the world. She has been such a joy since she's been here. Mckaylee and Daphnee have grown so much. They are both happy little girls and they always make me smile. I look back and I see so many blessings in the form of prayers being answered, family and friends that were there when we needed them. I am so blessed. I can't wait to see what 2009 brings us!
