Our dear friends and family, we are so blessed from the Lord to have yet another blessed year, filled with love and health. We have had such a great year. Busy as always! Jeremey is still working at Farmer's Oil and the farm and flying not near enough for him! He put the Roadhammer in the Guitly By Association Truck Show in Joplin this year and took home a trophy. The kids were in a tractor pull there too and all took home trophies! It was a good day for the Graves Gang! Abbey is a 4th grader and starting her barrel racing career and having a blast. Her new horse is Jessica, she sounds like a winner doesn't she? Natalie is in 1st grade and is a "rock star" on the playground as Jeremey puts it! She gets to sing at St. Mary's Assumption in Wakita on the first Sunday of the month. She loves the spotlight and holds her own! We are so proud of her! Zachery is almost 5 and in preschool. He has a great buddy Tyce and they are inseparateable! He is still the protector of the girls and loves all things boy!!!! Our baby Miss Emalie is also in preschool and turned 3 in August. She is a mamma's girl and I love it!! It is amazing just watching her grow! Abbey and Natalie are in Girl Scouts (cookies anyone in January?) and Natalie and Emalie are in dance and gymnastics. Zachery tags along sometimes willing and also hangs out with Jeremey for some male bonding! We have such jewels in our crown!! We truly are lucky parents!!! I am busy just trying to keep up with everyone and the places they need to be! What did we do before kids?

They know me in a way on one else ever has. They open me to things I never knew existed. They drive me to insanity and push me to my depths. They are the beat of my heart, the pulse in my veins, and the energy in my soul. They are my kids.
