A Very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Happy, Happy New Year

The last month has been a doozy in the FULL realm. Lots of fun memories being made for our first Christmas in 5 years that we celebrated in a ‘real’ house. Lots of decorating, lots of baking, lots of family, lots of gifts under a real tree. I’ve loved it.

Now that the holidays are coming to an end, I’m looking forward to regrouping and settling into a schedule – at least for a while. One last new tradition that our family will do together, though, is make a “Dream Board” for 2014. We started this last January and each family member dreamed big – lots of ‘God-sized’ dreams written on the poster board. At last check, we’ve crossed off over 20! The financial blessings and the crazy opportunities that happened are overwhelming. It’s incredible what God is longing to do and have us experience if we’ll only dream with Him. We’re looking forward to another ‘dreamy’ year with Jesus and I encourage you to do the same! I’ll leave you with a few of our realized dreams and a wish of a Happy New Year from our family to yours!
