2011 Year In Review.

Well as 2011 comes to a close it is time to reflect back on the year to see how much life has changed.  We have both lost and welcomed in family members this past year.  We celebrated birthdays, adoption days, anniversary's, and weddings. We celebrated the life of Granny who passed away at age 99. We grieved the loss of our dog Mia and welcomed in our new new dog Bea. We look forward to 2012 knowing we are blessed by our God and know He has some great plans for our family. We will start the new year praying for health and blessing as we pursue our dreams, plans, and hopes for 2012!  God Bless all of you who have faithfully followed us and prayed for/with us over this journey.

We started the year on the Great Wall of China
north of Beijing.  (it was freezing!)

On Jan 4 we met Lauren in Shanghai for the first time and on Jan 5 she became a member of the family. 

After settling in back home and getting some time for Lauren 
to adjust to her new surrounding we took her on her first visit 
to Disneyland. 

Lynda then turned her attention to finishing off all the final plans for Amber and Eddie's wedding which took place in March.

In May Lynda's Grandmother finally went home at the age of 99, although we grieved we also celebrated her life and how she touched not just our lives but countless others over her life.
At Granny's 95th birthday - the 4 generations.

We then got our 10 chickens and built a coup in the area behind our barn.  We ended up with 3 roosters and 7 hens - right now we are getting close to 2 dozen eggs a week.

Cameron not only graduated high school in 2011, but attended his first homecoming dance at a local high school with his friend Destiny.

In October we (Kevin & Lynda) celebrated
 our 28th wedding anniversary.

This year we also lost one of our sweetest dogs, Mia.
We also welcomed into our family a new dog a basset hound named Bea.



Kevin and Cameron also had the opportunity to travel back to Pennsylvania for a hunting trip with Kevin's brothers, nephews, and family friends.

HAPPY 2012


  1. Happy New Year Carr family!! Can't believe it has been a year ago that we were all FREEZING together!! Hope your 2012 is great!

  2. Thanks Chad and Becky!! This year has gone by fast. Looking through pictures to post, all the memories of those FRIGID days came back. So glad we took lots of pictures so we can now enjoy the sights in the comfort of a warm home what was too cold to really enjoy in person. Happy New Year to you all too.
