Casey Kasem's Top 40 Countdown


13 years of marriage
2 more children
2 years in our new town at our new church
3 years of blogging
1 plane trip
2 different therapists
3 ruptured cysts
1 vegetable garden that yielded exactly
3 vegetables

I think that's 40.

My Long Distance Dedication goes, however, to all of my new amazing friends in Haiti or that are adopting from Haiti, or that have already adopted from Haiti, and those many people who worked so hard to get my kids to us safely.

It has been one of the more difficult years for our family, and one of the best.

Happy New Year.

Knew.Every.Single.Song. I am sucker for 80's love songs. Now... where's my lighter?

Great photo of the kids, Christine. Your kids are beautiful.

Have a great New Year.

Your list almost goes to the turn of the 12 Days of Christmas! :)
Sometimes the hardest years and the more rewarding. Happy New Year to you...I'm glad we've found each other in blogland!

Sounds like a great, exhausting, emotional, terrifying, wonderful year.

I think your list only adds up to 30, though. Presumably you'll be having a very busy day today? :P

Hasn't been a fantastic year for us either. I want you to know that I have prayed for your family so much this year and will continue to! I admire and respect you so much!

I love that it was one of the most difficult AND one of the best. I love that you wouldn't change a thing. This is why I love you and your blog.

You added two kids in one year? That sounds like a crazy kind of fun to me.

They're all gorgeous!

A Happy Kinda New Year to you and yours from She Lives!
