2013 was a busy life changing year for us. 
Here is a run down:

-Allie ran in her first track meet. 

-I turned 35.
- We moved to OC for last month in OKC.
-Little Rhett Rhett joined the family! 
-We said goodbye to many friends. 
-I left a job I absolutely loved. 
-We survived 2 huge tornadoes.
-We moved to Conway.
-Jake turned 10!
-We found a wonderful church family. 
-The girls went to camp with Wilshire at QMCC.

-We went on several camping trips.
-Mami came for a visit! 
-We traveled to Detroit.

-Misa turned 29.

-We had the Bell birthday Bash in Houston. 
-The Berges girls came for a visit.
-Misa and I celebrated 5 years of marriage and 9 years of being together.  
-The girls started 5th grade and 8th grade. 
-I started school at UCA to pursue a degree in Addiction Studies. 
-I found out the first day of classes I was pregnant.

One thing is definitely for sure 2013 has strengthened us as a family. Especially Misa and the girls' relationship. It hasn't been the easiest year but I will say that it has been one of growth in our family, individually, and faith! 2014 looks like a similar year of growth as we move again and welcome a little one that will surely change the dynamtic of our family. We are looking forward to a lot of memory making and being able to work together to navigate the peaks and pits of life's journey!
