Happy New Year!!

It’s after Christmas so the snow can stop now๐Ÿ˜‰ While these aren’t ideal working conditions for Tim, it’s hard to complain when the kids are jumping with excitement at the sight of snow, “lots of snow,” as Asher would say! Thankfully it wasn’t terribly cold either so we were able to go out and have some fun…we’ll wait…after the first minute of severe drama from Leah losing her boot in the snow….  

then we were able to have some fun…  
 although Asher did have a difficult time walking due to the snow being so deep๐Ÿ˜  
 By the way, Leah helped get him dressed!  

  Nothing better to warm up with than a nice cup of hot chocolate! 

And with it being Christmas break, Leah also got the chance to go hang out with grandpa and grandma for the night…and for the most part she waited patiently until it was time to go! She sure was excited!    Then finally….New Year’s Eve which means hotel time!!! It has been the tradition for quite a few years now that our family, along with some of Tim’s family stay at a hotel to swim, play games and try to stay up until midnight to ring in the new year! ๐Ÿ˜Š

And once again, this year was a hit! Kids had a great time playing with their cousins and they made some new friends as well…doesn’t Leah look beautiful?!๐Ÿ˜   

Asher still going strong after 11pm… 

  And all I will say about the night….to anyone who does not have the game Awkward Family Photos…GO BUY IT NOW!!! I have not laughed that hard in a VERY long time!! But it probably didn’t help that I was sitting by one of the most giggly people there!!๐Ÿ˜‰ It was a riot and I can’t wait to order it!! Regardless of what games we play, it’s always a lot of fun and a great family tradition that the kids look forward to!!  

So, while it’s the first day of a new year, it was still another day of work on the farm…   

  Well, for daddy because the kids and I just watched him from the truck๐Ÿ˜

    

Skyler is always able to make her job responsibilities a little more fun!

 

And at first, Tim and I were upset that we don’t have cable to watch the Rose Bowl but with what we are hearing on the radio…it doesn’t sound like we missed out on too much…but that’s okay because Asher thought it was a lot more fun to ride in the skid loader anyway๐Ÿ˜Š   

It’s been a good year…but a tough year. We lost some really great people due to the complications from fibrosing mediastinitis, and while slow progress in treatments and cures are being made every day…it’s not enough! We need official research!!

Prayers continue to my fm family who continue this fight with me, and also for those who have lost their loved ones to this disease. Those lost have not been forgotten!

With that beig said, I also need to say a big THANK YOU to all who shared my last blog as I reached almost 3,000 people…my highest ever! So thank you for taking the time to share my story. I really hope my journey can somehow inspire others and bring even more awareness to this disease!  

We are so grateful for all of your continued support and prayers and look forward to what 2016 has to offer! #blessed
