(here is a digital copy of our Christmas card to those who we were unable to send one to)
~ In February, we took a family vacation to California where we met up with Ashli's family, hung out with Mickey Mouse, and enjoyed a 100® weather difference between home and our vacation.
~Bart did all kinds of manly things this year like putting up drywall and building shelves in our basement and garage, growing a mustache and beard for "Movember", and taking the whole family camping for the first time. He also did something super smarty-pantsish: he taught a master's level course at the local medical college.
~Ashli did something she never thought she could ever do: she ran a 5k! No wait-she ran two 5ks! She also (really) enjoyed attending the Daughtry concert with Bart. She learned that live concerts are amazing from the second row floor seats!
~We celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary, but because of a small munchkin who spent most of the year screaming for hours at night, we still have not taken our 10th anniversary trip.
~Kade is rocking 2nd grade, played two seasons of baseball this year, and spent the entire summer outside playing with his friends, riding bikes, playing catch, and using everything he could find as a pretend weapon.
~Ky is also rocking 2nd grade, where his favorite subjects are gym and music. He also played baseball this year, and played outside with his friends. He also spent countless hours on the computer writing and illustrating his own stories.
~Ky and Kade turn eight at the end of the month, and are excited to get baptized on New Year's Eve!
~Krew is the cutest two year old ever. He loves playing with his brothers, climbing on everything, riding on mom's bike with her, watching video clips on the iPad, and singing. Apparently he is also fond of screaming. To make things more exciting, he decided that he needed to take a ride in an ambulance on the first day of our vacation to Utah in October, but we didn't let that stop us from having a great trip!
Wishing you a fun-filled holiday!
