"So promise me you'll never forget...that you aren't an accident or an incident...you are a gift to the world, a divine work of art, signed by God. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on this earth...Flooded by emotion, overcome by pride, the Starmaker turns to us, one by one, and says, 'You are my child. I love you dearly.'" Max Lucado, God Thinks You're Wonderful

Quick update!

Just had to post a quick update.

We made it to Breckenridge, CO on Saturday and Blake got here within 30 minutes of us.

I can't explain to you the excitement of getting to see him. We all ran out of the lodge and I was crying like a baby. It was oh-so sweet to see my best friend again. I am still not sure how military wives do this, because I stink at it.

I cried about everytime I saw him, I couldn't quit hugging him and I pretty much didn't leave his side for the 24 hours that we got to see him before he left for Aspen again. My sweet family watched our kids so that we could ski together on Sunday and have some "date time". How blessed are we?

So, we are in Breckenridge for a family vacation with my family. There are about 20 of us here and it's been SO much fun just hanging out together.

We've been skiing and rotating babysitting for "the littles" and the older kids are skiing and going to ski school. Here are some quick pictures!

Sorry for the delay in posts....I couldn't find my cord for uploading pictures!

Sadie did great on the road trip. So much so that I felt bad for ever thinking she would be hard! I think it made all the difference in the world that my mom drove us the WHOLE way here! How would I have ever made it without my family? Will post more pictures from the trip soon!
