Recap of 2014

We had lots of fun and excitement packed into 2014 ~

Greg, Amy and I journeyed to Honduras for a week long mission trip.  Very hot, lots of fun, friendships forged and strengthened, and sharing Christ and His love with some awesome children & their parents.

Feb. brought us a new grandson ~ Thomas Jonathan Jackson Cutler!  He joined his big brother Robert and doubled our grandsons!  He is a laid back, easy going baby boy with beautiful smiles!  Its fun to watch him and Robert together.  He just started taking some steps this week.

We participated in several fundraisers to help with our church's week long mission trip to Haiti.  Will went this year for the first time and loved it. 

Greg & Amy went to New York for the 2nd year to serve with a mission team.  They had a great time.  I had to miss this trip because of James jaw infection and surgery.  I was the "babysitter".

We started working at a ceramics shop, first as a volunteer position and it turned into a part time job.

Amy went to Memphis for Street Reach again this year ~ 3rd year I believe.  She loves doing the mission projects and vbs for the inner city children in their neighborhood.

In August we spent time in Roanoke at Gregs folks home.  Amy got her boaters license and learned how to drive a jetski.

Just a couple of days after the middle of the month,  grandson #3 made his world debute!  Aiden Scott McDaniel ~ he is such a tiny little guy.  He surprised us all with his tiny size 5 1/2 pounds ~ a big surprise since his daddy weighed 9 pounds at birth.  At 4 months, he is a bundle of energy and has just about tripled in size.  Its a lot of fun to watch my son with his son!

We spent my birthday at Disney World.  Greg, Mom, Amy, Will and I had a blast.  Its as much fun to go with big kids as it is little kids!  But I am looking forward to taking grandchildren in the future!

We had several fun visits with Andy and AmyKate.  They were a great help when James was in the hospital.  AmyKate started doing ceramics projects with us! 

Thanksgiving was at Moms with all 3 grandsons together for the first time!  Oh, what fun.  3 little buddies ages 2 and under! 

December was our Christmas music at our church and the following week at another church.  Lots of laughter and praise in our little group.

All of our children turned a year older ~ James 31, Rob & Andy 27, Allen 25, Katie 21, Will 20 and Amy 18. 

We are looking forward to 2015 ~~~~~

a new grandbaby is coming in August!
Mission trips to Honduras, Haiti, and Memphis!
Our 10th anniversary!  We are planning an RV trip to Florida for our celebration!
Greg is eligible to retire in April ~ we don't know what this will bring yet!

We are so thankful for the blessings and opportunities the Lord has allowed us to enjoy.
