Happy New Year!
Wow what a year. Some very BIG accomplishments (not by me)and some really cool things happened. Let's see... Braden is now in Japan. Okinawa to be specific. He is doing well. He said that the Japanese do not care for us over there.He has not been able to see much but we have been able to Skype with him which has been very nice. He wanted everyone to know that he is well and he misses everyone. Jamie is working and getting back in the school work thing. Right now she is not feeling well. Jamie and her sister are sharing an apartment.
Courtney has GRADUATED Nursing School. She is an RN! What a tough 1-1/2 years for her and their family. They are all back in Mesquite and shared Christmas together as a family in their new home. Preston is now talking and singing like crazy. He is also in the middle of potty-training. Yes, he is a BIG BOY, just ask him. Andrew is starting in his new school in Mesquite and I thing he is more than ready to get back to school. Courtney said he is bored. I am sure that all of this is also a huge adjustment to Doug. Now the house is full of noise, yep, "Joyful Noise." I am glad they are all together again. I need to find a way to get Drew here each weekend for Jr. Jazz. He is a star. It was fun to have them here.
Brooke and Tim are always at a USU game or the cabin lately. I saw them today and they said that Scofield Reservoir area does not have much snow at all but the lake is frozen over. Ice fishing time.
Whitney and Isabelle are well. It was nice to have one little one at home for Christmas. She is like the others though. Toys get attention and clothes get tossed behind you. Christmas was fun.
Stacey is well. She reads a lot and plays with Isabelle. they are joined at the hip. Well actually they are joined at the knee since Izzy is quite a bit shorter, but probably not for long. Izzy is getting tall. She is so smart and silly. She can also be very moody. Yep it's a girl, ha,ha. Just kidding girls.
I am fine and hoping for warm weather.
I hope all of you are well and that you had a great Christmas and a very Happy New Year.
