In many ways, 2016 has been filled with heartache and sorrow. As our family prepared to mail out Christmas cards, our usual joy and spunk weren’t very accessible, and it took a lot of reflection to decide what message we wanted to send to our friends and family. What we wish most for the holidays, and for the coming year, is peace and good will. If we all make an effort, we can make a difference.

A brief update on the kids:

Evan is nearing 8 years old. He continues to love animals, doing flips, and making annoying sounds.

June recently turned 6 and lost her two front teeth! This fall she started kindergarten and joined Girl Scouts. We’re excited for cookies.

Ramona is now a very mobile 1 year old. She is continually content and brings an unfair amount of happiness to our family.

Happy Holidays!
