Looking back at what 2007 means to the Martin Family:

In March Zachary turned three and we had his birthday party at McDonald's. It is so hard to believe that my baby is 3. It seems like yesterday that I was crying because I didn't want to have anymore child rem. It's amazing how God knows the plans he has in store for us, even when we don't understand it at the time. Our nephew Ryan also turned one in March. Jamie and I love him like he were our own child. We love to see him come and even more love to see him go.

In May Andrew graduated from preschool. I can't believe that he will be starting big boy school.

In June we went to the happiest place on earth Disney World. We spent one week on Florida with my mom and step dad. This is the best vacation that we have ever went on. I started planning this vacation 8 months before we left and all my planning paid off. I can't wait to start planning our next vacation for 2008 to Disney again.

In July the kids and I went to the beach with my dad for 5 days. This was the first time I had ever taken the kids on my on and went somewhere over night. We had the best time. I would definitely do it again. The kids are finally getting old enough that taking all three by yourself is really not that bad.

In August Andrew started Kindergarten and Karson started 2nd grade. Karson was thrilled to finally have a nice teacher. She has had two very strict teachers her first two years at school and finally she got a very layed back easy going teacher. She will never forget Mrs. Hodge. I also started my second year teaching at AMRBC. I love teaching two year olds. I can't believe I can actually say that, but it's true.

In September, my purse was stolen out of my car in my driveway and I lost everything. Someone actually used several of my credit cards totaling over 1000.oo dollars. My digital camera was in my purse and I lost all of my Disney pictures and everything else that happened this year. It taught me a very valuable lesson, to never leave my purse in the car ever again.

In October my "baby" Karson turned 8 years old. I can't believe I have an 8 year old. We had our first sleepover at our house with 4 girls. It was so much fun, and we would do it again. She is getting bigger and smarter by the day. Sometimes she thinks she is 28 years old.

In November we went to Gatlinburg with our Sunday School Class. We look forward to this special bonding trip each year. Andrew also turned 6 this month.
