Merry Christmas and here's to another year.


Things sure do have a way of getting away from us. And you all know that clean socks and clean dishes trump blog updates. Then there's another thing: our boys are addicted to an online game that only works on the laptop (minecraft). Sometimes it's just not worth the fight to get online.

Here is our year-in-a-minute update:

MIKE
new thing: went to Germany, conducted first funeral
same old thing: coached Emily's soccer team

TONYA
new thing: in primary presidency (but old thing because it's my third time)
same old thing: still starting lots of projects instead of finishing them
news on my back: got the all clear from the doctor to do reasonable things and shouldn't have much trouble until arthritis kicks in

HAYDEN
new thing: in jr high, got taller than mom, went deep sea fishing
old thing: still on the computer non stop, still working towards Eagle scout

EMILY
new thing: in intermediate school, playing the flute,
old thing: still making crafts and drawing

TATE
new thing: new elementary school, likes Mike's fish 'n' chips, reading chapter books
old thing: still wants to do everything Hayden does, still likes to hug and snuggle

New post eh? Hayden must be at a friend's house so you can use the computer. We hope you had a great Christmas this year.
