Christmas card

With so many of our siblings moving out on their own this year, we ran out of Christmas cards pretty quickly! I meant to order another batch and send out more to our friends, but it just never happened. Don't be offended if you didn't get a card- unless you are family, you probably didn't get one! Here's an e-card and letter for you now.

Merry Christmas! 2014 has been an incredible year! Here is what we have been up to. (Although if you follow my blog, you probably know all of this anyway.)

All of us:
Our biggest adventure was selling our first home and buying a new home! We love our new place. It is exactly the same amount of square footage, so it's not exactly an upgrade, but the lack of stairs is amazing! We are also happy to be in a better school district for Parker.

We also are thrilled to be expanding our family! Baby #2 will join us in June of 2015. Any guesses to the gender?

Jon went to see his younger sister, Amanda, get married over the summer. He had a great time catching up with his parents and siblings in Salt Lake. Amanda was a beautiful bride, and Nate is a welcome addition to the family. Jon also received a promotion at work. He celebrated his 7 year anniversary with the company this March.

Sarah also got to see a younger sister get married! Carolyn was married in the St. George LDS Temple to Derek. Sarah enjoyed spending time with her siblings at the wedding in Utah, as well as a few crazy days in Las Vegas. (By crazy, we mean ordering 20 flavors of soda at Coca Cola world.) Sarah began volunteering at a suicide prevention line in June and has enjoyed using her skills to help others.

Parker continues to keep us all on our toes. He enjoys racing, running in circles, and jumping on things. He started pre-school this fall and loves it. He is learning so much! He is a bright little boy and Sarah is constantly thinking of new ways to challenge him. He has recently started putting together jigsaw puzzles. He is also obsessed with the alphabet and counting things. We are lucky to have a boy who enjoys learning so much! He is pretty clueless about Sarah's pregnancy, though. We talk to him about the baby and it clearly goes right over his head.

2014 has been a wild ride and we can't wait to see what 2015 brings us!
