This year has been one for the books! It started off a little rocky, but we accomplished so many of our goals this year. It feels so good to look back and see how much my family has grown. In February, we welcomed our second baby boy, Teagan. He is one of the happiest things that has ever come into my life. Today at the store Teagan was smiling at a man behind us in the checkout line and he said, “I will smile all day because of this baby.” He is so full of joy and shares it with all around him. I love that little bug! Shad graduated from BYU in April which has been a long time coming! We felt like he would be in school forever, but he did it! He finished! About a month before graduation, Shad got a job offer from a company that he was really hoping to work for. He accepted and got hired at Jones and DeMille Engineering. We are so so grateful for this job and the opportunities that it has given us. Shortly after graduation, we bought a house in Richfield and Shad started his real life big boy job. Buying a house is something that we always talked about and always seemed so far out of reach. It was a distant dream that somehow came true this year! We are so grateful for our amazing realtor, Kathy, and all that she did to help us in the buying process. She is not only a wonderful realtor, but an amazing person and friend. I can’t say enough good things about her. We started our life here in Richfield and have been so so blessed this year. These are just a few big things that happened, but all of the little things are just as significant. We can’t wait to see what 2017 brings!
