We wish all of you the happiest of holiday seasons and a fabulous new year. I always love sending out Christmas cards and love receiving them even more. And photo cards are the best ever! But with all of my kids scattered, with different schedules and kids’ activities keeping them close to home, it has become more and more difficult to get everyone together for group pictures these days. Also many of my family and friends keep up with us on Facebook and Instagram so it seems redundant to send out the same pix they see online. So this year I am just referring my card recipients to the blog to catch up on our news and see the latest photos. Welcome, friends! Scroll over the photos to see captions and feel free to read blog posts if you want more info than you can stand. 🙂
Susan, Corey, Aidan and Ally live in Clyde TX where Susan is a CNA at a nursing home and Corey drives a truck for an oil company. Aidan’s a high school freshman (WHAT?!) and Ally is in 5th grade.
Bonnie, David, Emery, Luke and Ada live in Amarillo where David continues to teach high school economics and has a thriving photography business on the “side” (more like another full time job). Bonnie is returning to teaching in January after a few years home with kiddos. She will be teaching 6th grade Pre-AP math and one section of regular math at a middle school near their home. Emery is in 3rd grade, Luke’s in 1st and Ada is in 4 year old preschool.
Sarah, Miles, Elle, Beck and Jack live here in Dallas so we get to see them a lot! Miles has a successful construction business and Sarah holds down the fort at home while volunteering and running around with kids. Elle is in 5th grade, Beck is in 2nd and Jack is in 4 year old preschool.
I’m thankful for our family and the good year we’ve had. I know we are fortunate and life is not easy for some. Wishing for a more just and peaceful world where everyone can feel safe and encouraged and able to achieve their greatness. We hope each of you thrives in the new year. Keep in touch, friends!
