Christmas card 2010

There are a few addresses I never rounded up so I thought I'd post our Christmas card and letter. We're off to Idaho-- Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Merry Christmas! We hope you have had a happy 2010 and find this card in good health and good spirits. We are grateful to have been blessed with another great year.

We started the year celebrating Jackson’s first birthday and it is hard to believe in a few weeks we will be celebrating his second! It has been a lot of fun watching him achieve many milestones this year. He spends his days running all over the place and talking up a storm. Some of his favorite things right now are movies (or “DBDs” as he calls them), swimming, cars, his tricycle, making messes, and playing with his dad. He is becoming more and more independent and makes us work harder for hugs and kisses. He continues to be the light of our lives and we are so happy to have him in our family.

We found out in early September that another little one will be joining our family in the spring! We are thrilled to have another baby on the way and are so grateful this came without any doctor assistance. We are excited to find out if it is a boy or girl mid-December—we’re happy either way!

Sean has had a busy year with school and work. He entered his final year of law school this fall and is looking forward to finishing in the spring. It’s strange thinking there really is life beyond school. He continues to work as a legal clerk for APX and really enjoys it. We were thrilled when APX extended Sean a job offer to join their in-house legal team after graduation. We know he is very fortunate to have such a wonderful job opportunity in such a difficult job market. Life for Sean this year hasn’t been all work. This summer he joined a karting league at Miller Motorsports Park with one of his friends and absolutely loved it. He was also able to go with a few friends to the second installment of a driving school in Alabama. He got to let out his inner-racing demon—thankfully in a somewhat controlled environment!

Jenny is staying busy running after Jackson and trying not to let her waist expand too rapidly. During free time (a.k.a. naptime), she has enjoyed working in the garden and a few sewing projects. She is an activity days leader for church and enjoys planning and attending activities with the cute girls in her neighborhood. She also survived enjoyed girls camp this summer as girls camp director. Ready for a vacation, she suggested a family trip to Yosemite National Park and San Francisco this fall. We saw some beautiful scenery and had a great time exploring together.

We are so grateful for our family and friends and wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
