Dear Family,
     Well, it's been a busy year. We had a new member join our family. Grace Isabelle got here last August. As for other memorable events... hmmm.... we lost two vehicles in July but are now mobile and appreciating the changes now that we aren't stranded on a mountain side.  Kaitlin is in her last year of elementary school. I can't believe how fast she has grown and what a beautiful young woman she is becoming inside and out. Kaden is still as energetic as usual. He is in love with sports and being physical. He is still a great help to me. Riley just completed another season of football. He was the king of interceptions on his team. He is also a giant. Hailey has adopted Grace ;) or at least claimed her as her own. She is loving the second grade and her teacher Mr. Bottimer. Tavis still plays a ton of make believe. His teacher informed me he is one of the most tenacious students she's ever had, always has to keep trying until he gets it right. He hasn't quit loving art either. Laila oh Laila... she has got me on my knees!!! Praying that we make it to 6yrs old. I mean really that girl pushes all of my buttons. Grace is a little blessing. She is loved by all and for an almost 4 month old is full of personality. She coos and makes noise all the time. As for Jeremy and I we are great! Jeremy is now working at the prison as a correctional officer and is doing well. His superiors are often commenting on what a outstanding job he is doing. #proudwife... Anyway I am enjoying the blessing of being able to be home with my babies and not miss a moment of this madness. Though they make me nuts I love them crazy style and would be sad to miss a minute of them growing up. Hope you all are doing great and the holidays are finding you happy and healthy!!!
