I am cheating this year with our christmas cards. It has just been one of those months where I decided this was the best I could do. Live has been great for us. I can not believe the year is almost over.
JoAnn started school this year and is loving it. She will turn six in February and she can't wait. She is absolutely amazing about being mom's big helper. It has been hard having her gone during the day, but as soon as she is home, she wants to do what I do. She is already reading some books and loves to sound out words and spell anything she can.
Jay will be four next month and is so excited to finally get to be in Primary. He is not my big helper around the house and love to be a protective big brother to Savanna. He is definately ALL BOY and love anything messy, dirty, or anything his dad is doing.
Savanna is now 21 months and has become our little spit fire. She is so much fun and loves to be the center of attention. She is definately strong willed and it is amazing how much she is understanding. She is not talking in full sentences and suprising me every day. She is also my cuddle bug and can't seem to get enough of dad or mom.
Alan is still working for Auto Owners. We are so grateful with the economy that he has a job, but we still would love to get up north. Alan is an amazing dad and husband and the kids adore him. As soon as he walks in the door, mom is no longer important. Alan started school up again last semester and between school, work, and his calling (2nd Counselor in the Elder's Quorum) he has definatetly been busy. Somehow he still finds time to cook Sunday dinners and help around the house!
I am loving my life. My kids definately keep me busy, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I am still with the Young Women and wouldn't want any other calling. I also started school up this last semester and was amazed how much I enjoyed learning again. I was able to do all my classes online and should be able to for the next two semesters. I am hoping to get into the nursing program in the fall...we will see what life has in store for us.
We are so blessed and grateful to be together during this time of year. We will get to spend Christmas in St. Johns and my kids are praying for snow! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
