Home Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

by Shawni



I got too tired to write up some witty little thing about what we were up to this year on our cards…I figured I could say it all in pictures.

But for record-keeping sake I wanted to sum it up in a few words too.

1,387 tantrums thrown
46 pounds of “baby” to lug around
6 different doctor specialists visited
0 trips to the emergency room (don’t worry, I just knocked on wood)
1 syndrome diagnosed
3 trips to Mexico
10 reams of paper filled up with creative drawings
4 therapists we are indebted to
4 family entrepreneurial businesses started (Elle’s dance/gymnastics classes, Max’s lawn mowing, Grace’s child care and Elle’s photography)
9,495 pictures taken (that’s not including the thousands of deleted ones)
1 book published
1 half marathon run
2 new members of the family now snow-skiers
2 car wrecks
1 additional Priesthood holder
1 baptism
14 rounds of antibiotics taken
1 kid in Jr. High
4 girls in the same school
1 thankful family

We wish everyone such a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from our house to yours!

I loved your Christmas card, but was disappointed that it didn't come with a newsletter. I'm glad you wrote one on here. Merry Christmas!
p.s. that rash in your earlier post looked SO miserable!

I LOVE the card and list! We can relate to a lot of that. I recently found your blog and wanted to stop in and say hi. I really love reading about your beautiful family. I was so touched by Lucy's story and will keep her and you all in my prayers.
