Christmas Letter 2008

Photobucket Once again Christmas is upon us and we find ourselves busier than we would like to be. I would rather snuggle in front of the fireplace then deal with grouchy cashiers, traffic and the cold.
Wouldn’t you?
2008 is quickly coming to a close and honestly I am looking forward to 2009!
But, before it gets here I thought I would update you on all the craziness in our neck of the woods. Our summer was spent finishing the basement(almost done but not quite) Jennifer has moved into her new room a few months ago and doesn’t seem too mind that the bathroom isn’t done and the paint needs touching up. That along with the fence and deck will have to be pushed onto next years “to do list”.
But, 2008 wasn’t all work and no play!
Barry and I got our Hawaiian vacation in and the travel bug bit us both. Our next stop is Mexico but the wheels are already turning to where we will travel next. Barry & I are busy with courses...his is for work, mine is a bit more relaxing and the results are a lot tastier! I am learning how to decorate cakes. We both made career changes this year. Barry left Halliburton and has joined GLM Industries as their maintenance manager and I went back to work and opened up a Family Day Home thru and agency. So far the families have been amazing!
Jennifer is as busy as ever! She decided this year that she wanted to dance so we put her in Jazz. Her instructor is quite impressed and wants her to go into competition dance next fall. Pathfinders and youth group take up a fair amount of her time as well but she is happy, busy and seems to have settled in quite nicely.
Noah just turned 4 and has turned his attention off of “Cars” and has become quite the “Thomas the Tank engine” nut.
Following fast in her big brother’s foots steps Abby has quite a fascination for whatever Noah is playing with so there are many fights over trains & Cars in our house.All of the children have been busy growing, learning and exploring and we are anxious to see what they will teach us next!
Until Next time…
Heather& Family!

What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace. Agnes M. Pharo
