Merry Christmas Everyone

***Disclaimer*** I will not be sending out any Christmas Letters this year. Sorry!! The month got away too fast. Anyway, here is our Christmas Letter and a small dance our family has been practicing :) Enjoy!!!

Dear Family and Friends,
We hope that 2007 brought you happiness and joy. We hope that this holiday season finds you happy an blessed.

After 6 ½ years with Dish Network, DH said goodbye. He accepted a job with Pioneer Cable and is extremely happy with the change. It has been an adjustment, but having James home earlier and happier is worth it. He loves his new company that treats him so much better than his last. We are grateful that he works so hard for our family to provide love and support to us. DH teaches the 11 yr. old children in Primary and really likes it. He may be moved to teaching the 8 yr olds, but doesn’t know yet.

DW began her 8th year of teaching this year. She is teaching at John C. Fremont in the 5th grade. She loves only working part time. She has a job share with her co-worker Lisa. It is so wonderful. They each watch each others children, while the other is teaching. With 4 kids under the age of 3, it is a little hectic. It is a great set up and she is so grateful to only be away from the girls for about 4 hours a day. What a blessing. Another blessing, was finding out that our 3rd child is on the way. We will find out on Christmas morning if this is a little boy or a little girl. Either way, we are extremely excited to add another child into our family.DW is the Nursery Leader in her ward. It is a very exhausting job. She knows she was called there so that D2 can be okay with being in there. We don’t know if we will have to go to Primary with D2.

D1 is 3 ½ and is just that 3!!! She recently potty trained and is doing so well at it. It took a while for HER to decide when SHE was ready. She gave her mom and dad a hard time and knew just how to be in control. She is our little sweetheart. She will continually come up and say, “I love you, Mom” or “You’re so sweet!”. She loves life and everyone around her. D1 is very excited to start Primary in January. It is amazing that she will be a little Sunbeam. Where did the time go??

D2 is 18 months and getting into EVERYTHING!!! She began walking at 14 months and hasn’t stopped getting into everything since. She changed from a very needy mommy’s girl to a go getter. She has finally accepted family members and will finally let them hold her. I have noticed recently that D2 is very shy. She will only start to play with the kids after she feels comfortable. Most of the time, you will find her happily playing by herself. She is also a sweetheart. She loves her daddy to bits. When he comes home from work, she will not let him out of her sight. If he happens to slip away for a moment, she throws a fit! D2 begins her first official day in Nursery this Sunday. She enjoys it a lot, but only if Mom or Dad is there.

We are looking forward to 2008. We look forward to the many blessings in store for us. We love you all and hope that you have a great holiday season.
Our Family

Hello! Glad to hear things are going well. Your page is still cute as ever. Sorry we didn't send you a card or letter either. I only did a few, mostly to people I hardly ever see. I didn't even send one to my mom. Craziness. Anyways, good to see how you are doing. Greetings from us :)
