insights from a daughter of the King, teacher, farmer's wife, and Mommy


2015 in review

15 for 2015

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Philippians 4:6

1.  We prayed so much this year, for mission trips, babies, marriages, weather, sickness, loss, and each other.

2.  Addie started Pre-K, it was a little rocky at first but she loves it now and she has awesome teachers.

3.  Owen tried two new sports football and baseball.  He id still unsure about them both.  But is loving basketball.

4.  We made new friends and were grateful for the friends who have hung with us through the years.

5. Matthew built playsets and trailers and welded machinery and worked.

6.  Owen flew for the first time to Montana with my mom and dad and our good friends Donna and Terry.  He loved it and had a blast.

7.  Word for 2015: Adventure and adventure we did.  Our first time to Pigeon Forge and Dollywood. We hiked and camped at Stone Mountain, NC.  

8.  Music was made every day.  Owen learned to play the upright bass and continues to jam on the mandolin.  Addie rocks the ukulele and belts out Adele all the time.  

9.  Jessica, Chris, and I played a lot of trivia crack and Matthew and I discovered snapchat.

10.  Of course there were concerts!  Winter jam was awesome with For King and Country and Skillet.  Balsam Range like 4 times this year, always good, even in the rain.  Flatt Lonesome dedicated a song to Owen from stage.  Heather and Shannon Slaughter.  Marty Raybon and Shenandoah.  Merlefest was a blast!

11.  Matthew and I celebrated 6 years of marriage, with a weekend near Cherokee.   Love him so much!

12.  It rained a lot and we saw lots of rainbows.  Addie loves playing in the puddles and Owen loves to get muddy, boys.  

13.  We made time for family and friends and each other. 

14. Cousins are our best friends.  

15.  Addie fell in love with apple butter and Christmas decorations.  Owen loves cooking!



We are truly thankful for all the blessings of 2015, all the answered prayers, all the memories, and all the adventures.  God is good!


And here's to 2016 and all that it holds.
