Christmas Letter

Dear Family and Friends, Dec. 2008
As we look forward to a new years beginning, we would like to take some time to reflect on the things that made this year memorable (and movie quotable).
Trevor is an official teenager and in the 7th grade. He is currently playing basketball, but still enjoys baseball most of the year. Our favorite trip this year was for a tournament in Cooperstown, NY. His team did very well and tied for 9th out of 98 teams. While in NY, we went to Yankee Stadium and watched his favorite team, The Red Sox, beat the Yankees. “It was so choice, if you have the means, I highly recommend it.” (Ferris Bueller)
Tye is almost 18, and finally a senior. He is following in his dads footsteps and has been taking drafting and aviation classes. (Maybe he should design airplanes?) He is working for the theaters that are just down the street, and who wouldn’t love the free movies? Soon he will be graduating and off to college :( His new motto…“Life moves pretty fast, if you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” (Ferris Bueller)
Brittany has stolen the spotlight for this year by getting married. She met Jake during her first semester at Weber State and was married and the end of the second semester. They went to California and on a cruise for their honeymoon. They bought a home in Ogden, close to school and work. Jake is a software engineer and Brit is still going to school and works for McKay Dee Hospital. As they say…“If you find somebody you can love, you can’t let that get away.” (Wedding Singer)
Marc now flies for the biggest airline in the world, yes, that still is Delta. In August we went on a cruise to Alaska with all of his extended family-25 of us. In September, he had his 20 year class reunion, and he wasn’t the only one with less hair. In October we took the boys on a mini cruise out of Miami, just to relax. As for me, my year has been full being; wedding planner, travel planner, my 20 year reunion planner, patient, chauffeur, scorekeeper, mom, activities committee planner, and lets not forget “best wife ever.” Just ask Marc…“All I wanna do is grow old with you.” (Wedding Singer)
We hope this year has been good for you and your families and that this Holiday Season finds you healthy and safe.
Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown!

November Sweeps...We took a nose dive in the ratings

So here is my monthly "what we did last month" blog. Lets just say that November was pretty uneventful. I had some surgery, it was Thanksgiving, Marc's cousin had a new baby, I started Christmas shopping, started planning my class reunion (which will be way better than Marc's), the boys played in a 3 on 3 basketball tournament and the turkey bowl, Trev started Jr. Jazz, and the Titans lost their first game of the season. Last but not least, Tye made the Honor Roll for the first time in High school! Wow, can you say boring?
Hopefully December will have a little more to "write home about." I will at least post our family Christmas card.
