Here is our 2011 Christmas newsletter. I'm not mailing anything out this year, so you all get to view it electronically. Hey, I'm saving the trees! (and I don't have the money for cards and postage, or the time to get it all out.)
Ben got his Wolf merit badge today at his scout pack meeting, so he is now working on his Bear. I'm really proud of him and how driven he is. He is a very responsible kid and so trustworthy. He's a great big brother, too!
Jake is in Dallas, Texas this week, training for his new job. He's going to be an independent contractor for an oil and gas title firm. He is excited about it. He really enjoys title work and did quite a bit of it at his old firm. The job is flexible. He will be working from home and setting his own hours. And the best part is it pays the bills! We've been struggling to make ends meet the past two years and finally we will be able to get our feet under us again. We feel really blessed.
I'm busy carpooling, volunteering in Ben's class every week, going to Relief Society meetings every week, working Monday through Thursday, taking kids to dance, basketball, helping plan our ward's Christmas party that is this Saturday, working out 4-5 days/week, helping my friend get through some tough times, keeping the fridge stocked, budget balanced, just wrapped all our Christmas presents, helping the kids with homework, went through the kids old clothes and toys, sold old toys on eBay and KSL, and more. The good news is, I sleep really well at night. I'm out as soon as my head hits the pillow. :) Which reminds me... my pillow is calling. Better catch some zzz's. Until next time...
