Goodbye 2011, Hello 2012

This past week Chase and I took time to reflect on 2011 and all the blessings we received from the Lord. Really, 2011 was quite the year and I don't know how 2012 could top it. But we do have a lot of unknowns left, which should make for some excitement in 2012. Here are some of the highlights of 2011.
**Chase finding out he landed an internship with the Air Force as a JAG.
**Being showered with love by friends and family in preparation for Mila's arrival.
**Living in an area that allows us to attend married student wards. We find it such a blessing that last year we served in amazing wards and made more lasting friendships.
*Obviously THE highlight of the year was the arrival of Mila Christy Gunnell on May 17.
*Spending the summer in Texas near family and having family present in person and via technology for Mila's blessing.
**Quality family time (just the three of us) in San Antonio.
**Mila surviving two 1,000+ mile drives. She was a trooper!
**Selling our condo...bitter sweet, but definitely a huge blessing!
**Chase receiving an offer to be a JAG for the Air Force.
(Here's a picture of our celebratory breakfast since he received the call at 7AM)
**Spending Christmas as a family of three!
