Happy New Year!


I have to apologize because we didn't get Christmas cards out this year. Christmas cards are one of my favorite things about the holidays. I have mine hung up all over my house so I can remember how lucky I am to have so many wonderful friends in my life. I will try to be better next year. Here is what my card probably would of said if I sent it.

We love Florida!!! We love the sunshine and the beautiful weather. I guess living in buffalo for four years really helps you appreciate warmth. Everyday we thank Heavenly Father for letting us live here. We spend most of our time outdoors. We love the beach and all the parks. We also have really enjoyed being in the air force. We have met so many wonderful people. The military seems to understand not to take friendships for granted. You never know when someone is going to leave and so you just cherish the time you have.

Here is a run down of how everyone is doing. Rylee is in kindergarten. She is doing so well. She loves to read and will read any book she can get her hands on. She wants to be a cooker, teacher, or makeup girl when she grows up. She is still sweet as can be. She loves her friends. She worries about everyone and is always willing to help. She is loving Florida but still wishes she could live in Utah next to her grandmas.
Piper is hilarious. Her goal in life is to always have fun. If something is not fun then she wants nothing to do with it. She told my friend that she wants to be a monster when she grows up. She wants to marry her dad when she is five. She insists to anyone that asks that she attends school every day (she doesn't).  She came out of her room one day with nine pairs of underwear on. She feels no guilt about anything. She just enjoys every moment she has.
Sawyer is thirteen months old and is very active. He explores every inch of the house. He empties ever drawer and box that he can get his hands on. He is either the easiest baby ever or the hardest. He loves to laugh. His favorite past time is splashing in the toilet or pulling the toaster around the house.

Scott is enjoying the Air Force. He is learning a ton and is grateful he gets to work with so many specialists. He is the finance clerk at church. He is a wonderful dad and spends most of his spare time making the kids laugh.
I am doing great. I have wonderful friends who I spend as much time as I can with. I love being a mom more than I ever have. I love to cook and am constantly trying to perfect my recipes. I wish we could live in Florida forever but we will be moving again in August. I forgotten how much I love being near the beach. I am a beach girl through and through. We love you and miss you all. We hope that 2012 is the best year for you yet!
