Fun fact of 2017 - it was the first odd year since 2001 that I did not have a baby. The first 3 were even years, and then came 7 kids from Hyrum in 2003 through Owen in 2015 that were born every odd year. Daniel broke the tradition being in 2016. We're looking forward to 2018. The only big change we know that's coming as of right now is that our oldest, Joseph, will be leaving this summer for a 2 year LDS mission. We are super excited for him, but also a little teary that our first chick is flying from the nest. It will never be the same, but you can't stop the change. He's ready to launch so we're happy for him. Have a happy 2018!
