Ho! Ho! Ho! Hope everyone is well out there, and ready to see Santa Claus! I know my kids are. 16 days, but who’s counting? Here’s a little glimpse into our family this holiday season
Mark and I have managed to keep all of our kids alive this year and we even got to celebrate 7 years of marriage–just the two of us–in Durango, Colorado. We had a great time eating, hiking, and playing some serious games of foosball. Tragically, Mark took my foosball champion title. We still love Crossfit and do as many WOD’s a week as we can squeeze in. Mark is still working with the family at Petex Sign and continues to explore new investments and trade mining stock . I am still growing my little photography business and selling AdvoCare supplements, but mostly trying to keep the ship sailing smoothly at home. I am so thankful I get to do that. Jaden is about to celebrate his 12th birthday! He is in 6th grade this year. He plays baseball (catcher), plays the bells in band, and is in the Math Club. He is an outstanding student and an even better big brother. We are pretty excited that we will soon have a live-in-babysitterWe could not be more proud of him and what a wonderful young man he is. Eve is 5! She LOVES kindergarten. She and I share a love of reading and art. She reads to us every night and has filled our house with beautiful artwork. Mostly of dogs and bats. The occasional rainbow. Haha. She is the sweetest girl with such a heart full of love. She says when she grows up she wants to work at Sunday school, be a Mom, and a Veterinarian–in that order.Scarlett, oh, Scarlett. Scarlett is 2 and owning it! Mark and I were just discussing that we think she is starting to emerge from her wild ways into a darling little lady. She is her Daddy’s mini-me with blonde curlsShe LOVES to swing and bounce and RUN. Underdogs are her favorite and, of course, the Super Mario Brothers. She is very brave and thoughtful. We got a puppy about 6 months ago and Vega has become Scarlett’s little sister. She bosses her around a little bit, gives her a treat, & repeat. It is hilarious. Vega doesn’t seem to mindI hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!!
xoxo Mark, Val, Jaden, Eve, Scarlett, & Vega
