"Year in Review"

I printed out this neat little "Year in Review" for our family to fill out several weeks ago. I just went to link it here and the link has been removed. Well darn it!
So I will post a few of the questions and my family's answers here for ya. It was a great way to end 2014 for The Morrows. Some of the girls really got into it and took almost an hour to fill out.

Things I loved about this year: Getting to see my family in Indiana. Adding Amy & Noah to our family. Being promoted at work.
Things I am thankful for: Forgiveness in Christ, my family, my church, God's Word
Hardest thing of the year: Raising three teenage daughters at the same time

Things I loved about this year: Watching God grow our family & provide for all the necessities
Favorite memory: seeing my girls be more selfless than anyone I know
Greatest lesson learned: God always provides

The boys obviously didn't fill out forms, but I think they will agree 2014 was an AWESOME year!
Josiah & Noah are best buds and they clearly couldn't imagine life without each other.

Here are the questions in detail, if you'd like to sit down w/ your family to ask them the questions. It certainly provided about an hour of conversation time for us and it was great to reminisce and to think of things we're looking forward to in 2015!
