2012 has been the year for change in our home!
In May we went to Disney World! It was an amazing trip! We went with Jamie & Craig, & Jim & Cathy (my adopted parents J). We also went to Universal Studios to see Hogwarts! It was an experience we will never forget!
In June we bought our first home! 7131 Cloverglen Dr, Dallas, TX 75249 J It is taking a lot of work, but we are putting our own touches into everything! We have also had some amazing help! Thank you everyone who helped us move & helped us renovate!!! We love having our own home! But we miss seeing Conner & Elias everyday! They change so much from day to day that now when we see them we feel like they are different people! We would like to thank The Burns’ for the time ya’ll allowed us to live in your home! It was a blessing & we love ya’ll!
Then we changed churches. It was a very difficult decision, but we felt God calling us elsewhere. In June we started attending Waxahachie Bible Church. In August we attended our last youth service at Abundant, which was the most difficult part of leaving. We are really enjoying Waxahachie Bible! In the short time we have been there it already feels like home. We have met some great people & started attending a Sunday school class where everyone is like family.
Then Krystle became a Pet Granny! She started working for The Pet Granny as a pet sitter part time. It is a family owned & run business (Patrick’s Aunt’s) & they were getting busy so asked if she wanted to work with them. She is really enjoying it! She is also still creating for ScrappinArt, though not as much now that we have a home to put in order.
Patrick has been working at Promotional Arts for 8 ½ years! He is also continuing to grow his computer repair business in his free time.
I would like to leave you with a little Christmas nugget that came to me the other day. When we give gifts, we should do it out of love; not expecting a gift in return. When Jesus came to earth giving us the most precious gift, He knew we could never repay Him! But He did it anyway! And if you could not buy gifts this year, then lovingly accept the gifts others have gotten you, knowing they love you and wanted to give to you.
We love you! We hope you make this Christmas a wonderful time with friends, family, & love! Merry Christmas!
Patrick & Krystle
