End of 2012

So there are some random photos that need to go in our book for the year, so here are a few, plus New Year's Day fun.
Random picture of my three favorite girls before Church one day!
Cute picture of the Urry family:  Heather (Matt's sister), Brandon, Skousen, Dexter
 December 29 pictures

 December 31--braved the mall so the girls could ride the train.
 And of course...sit in the remote control car
 What could be better than riding a train in the mall with my three amazing girls.
New Year's Eve night Matt chaperoned the stake youth dance.  So I tried to catch up on the blog and put the kids to bed at a good time so they were not messed up the next day.  
What a year this has been....greatest highlight was finalizing Lily's adoption and taking her to the temple in November.  My Mom and Dad even were able to be there which made it even more special.  Lexy blessed our home with her arrival on May 6 and are lives have been even more wonderful ever since.  We saw our cousin Doug marry in August in a crazy weekend drive to Washington and our friend Natalie got married in September in Arizona.  We are both teaching at Bakersfield College and have great Church callings.  We have the best family and friends and a beautiful home that continues to look  better each year as we add to it piece by piece!  Best of all we have each other and we have testimonies of the gospel of Jesus Christ and know that if we follow His commandments we can return to live with Him again as an eternal family.  Next step:  Lexy's finalization and sealing!  We are so blessed.
