Because I was gone for six days (between Christmas and New Year’s) I missed my opportunity to do a “Year in Review” before we rolled over to 2014.
So….it’s a little bit late. Here are the highlights for 2013:
I got a ticket: 😦
I am proud of my husband here.
I wrote this blog post.
This was my FAVORITE month–I got to go to Illinois!!! (Where my heart lives)!!! 🙂
Andi and me
Jeremiah and me
Paige and me
Rebecca, Andi, Hannah, and me
Shannon and me

I am SO READY to go back!!!
We spent a lot of time lovin’ on kids at church….
Brooklyn, Mason, Heath, and Walker

We also went to San Antonio for Alika’s graduation from Basic Training in the Air Force:
Me, Alika, and Paul
My life was CONSUMED with Vacation Bible School!!!! There’s no way I can recap that–trust me, it was fun, rewarding, exhausting, and worth it!
My other favorite month of the year (besides APRIL)!! We went on Mission Trip–
We met life-long friends (Kris and Heidi) and I got to Jamie and his family….
Emilie, Lauren, and Morgan
Jasmine and Macie
Paul and Aubrey

Oh, we also moved in July….directly after getting back from Mission Trip and before going to Pre-Teen Camp:
We started August (ended July) going to Pre-Teen Camp
Paul and me
Paul, Lindsey, Victoria, Catherine, and Taylor

Right after Pre-Teen Camp, I turned around and went to Children’s Camp.
Hanna and Ellie
(August was a hard month for me, in regards to ministry at the camp–Children’s Camp was terrible for me and I really struggled in ministry during that month)….
August was also my birthday! We went to San Antonio for a little “mini vacay”
We went to a Baylor football game with Heidi, Kris, and Aubrey. They beat Buffalo, 70+ to 13, I think. It was also 110+ degrees outside!
We also immersed ourselves in all things football: Middle School football, Freshmen football, and Varsity football…..
One of my favorite posts:
We had National (Texas) Night Out at church and Fall Festival (another rough month of ministry for me). The Children’s Committee ALL work full-time, everyday, so it was up to me (and Paul) to do the entire Fall Festival by myself….it was hard and not something I look forward to again.
November was a SLOW month in “bloggy world” because I only wrote ONE POST!! I can’t believe it…..but, here it is:
Between November and December, I spent a lot of time going to Waco….4 times in a one month period, to be exact
Thanksgiving was so late that those pictures ended up in December….
Loved seeing the Derrick’s, as always! 🙂
The original Tanner 5: Donna, Susan, Paul, David, and Mike
I worked twice at Lights of Tej*as
We had our annual Christmas hayride and then went to San Antonio for a mini-vacation, just the two of us! 🙂
Then, Christmas with the Fam came…..
Paul and me
Leslie, Marcy, and me
Scott, Leslie, Marcy, me, and Paul
Dad, Leslie, Mom, me, and Marcy
Leslie, me, and Marcy
The whole Hubbard clan–missing 3
2013 was kind of a rough year for me, in ministry and in marriage. We laughed a lot, we learned a lot, we (I) cried a lot, we prayed a lot, we cared a lot, we fought a lot, but, we survived and came out better on the other side!
Here’s to 2014!!
