Christmas Card and Letter 2011

Merry Christmas from the Schmitz Family! 2011 has been an amazing year for us. In January Mark and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary. It is hard to believe in a few weeks we will be celebrating 4 years of marriage! It seems like yesterday we were gathered with all our most special friends and family to celebrate a lifetime together.  We have been through so much together; some of which we “planned”, and some of which we didn’t…funny how the Lord works right?!?!
It seems our life is in a constant state of “going”, and this year was no different. Last January Mark and I became full owners of EXPEDITEstl, because of this I have been able to work from home. We travel once a month to IKEA to pick up the orders placed on our website. Thanks to the help from my parent’s, this hasn’t been a hard task! ;) This is just one of the many blessings we received in 2011. We’ve been able to experience the best of both worlds! I’ve been able to stay at home with Wyatt all day, but receive a paycheck while Mark is still in school!
In April we were able to take a family vacation to Disney World! (Thanks to my in-laws and the giving heart they have with their timeshare.) This was both mine and Wyatt’s first time to Disney World. It was a blast! Wyatt loved the characters and enjoyed all the children rides! April was such perfect timing too as we prepared to celebrate Wyatt’s first birthday.
May came and went so quickly. It was a month full of emotions. I had so much fun planning Wyatt’s first birthday party. It was carnival themed and turned out so cute! We were reminded of how blessed we are with such great family and friends. Wyatt was taking steps, drinking from a sippy cup, and eating table food by his first birthday! It seems he is discovering something new every day!
July was another incredible month! We found out Wyatt was going to be a big brother in March 2012. Then a few months later we found he was going to have a sister! We were so elated with the news.  We are in constant prayer and know this pregnancy is in the hands of the Lord.  March can’t come soon enough!
2011 is Mark’s last full year of Chiropractic School. He will graduate in Aug. 2012 and we couldn’t be more excited. Mark is such a great daddy and husband. He manages his time between school, clinic hours, EXPEDITEstl, and being “daddy” and “husband” too! He was recently selected to be the SIA (Senior Intern Assistant) at the clinic where he sees patients. Though he would never say it, but this is such an honor! In his free time Mark still enjoys golfing, working outside, and playing with his little “mini me” Wyatt. We have begun planning for the days after graduation and are praying and seeking the Lord’s will for our family.
Being able to stay at home with Wyatt has been such a blessing for me. As March quickly approaches, I am making it a point to spend special time with him. Between EXPEDITEstl bookwork, play dates, being a wife and mommy, I manage to still stay pretty busy.  We are so blessed and continue to remember the Lord’s blessings are new every morning! May God bless you and your family as we enter into 2012!
