What a Year...

Matt was talking to one of his pastor friends this year (who he had not talked to in a while) and he when he heard that we had moved, had a baby, planted a church & gotten ordained all in one year, he was shocked!

Here is our review of 2010, Enjoy!
We found out in the beginng of 2010 we were pregnant with baby #2

Matt was getting used to working (a lot) and preaching on occasion

We were enjoying the beach & our close proximity (5 min. drive)...

In March we found out that Andrew would have a baby sister.

In May we went back to St. Louis so Matt could "walk" for completing his Master's of Divinity.

Andrew turned 2!

We celebrate 6 years of Marriage!

...more swimming

I had a girl's weekend in Tampa to celebrate my sister's 30th birthday!

Matt preformed his 1st wedding (he did 3 weddings this year)

We started getting ready for the baby...

...more swimming...

We got to have a weekend get-away with The Christiansons

This is the last picture I took before Molly came (36 weeks)

We went from a family of 3 to...

...a family of 4!

Molly Joy Loveall joined our family on July 27th at 10:54 pm...

Andrew started school, 2 days a week for just a few hours...he loves it!

After many days & nights of studying, Matt passed his exams and became ordained. He is a Reverend now!

Molly was baptized by her Daddy!

We started services in November at our church plant, Oak River Church

What a year it has been! These are just some of our highlights and we have had our struggles and joys this year! We are so blessed by our wonderful family and hope you all have a wonderful Christ-centered Christmas...

From our family to yours, Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
