End-of-year Wrap Up

2012 was a Great year for our family.
The kids started third grade and turned 9! Where does the time go?
Eliza had another great soccer season and started piano lessons with her all time favorite teacher, Miss E!
Sarah joined a community children's choir and continues to be a strait A student!
Caleb spent the year coming up with some pretty great inventions. He managed to figure out how to get his pinewood derby car to be self propelled by  mounting a motor from an old VCR and a propeller from a broken toy on it. He advanced in Cub-scouts and completed all his wolf requirements.
I still love serving in our ward primary presidency, and I learned that it is possible to pay for Christmas by selling ugly Christmas sweaters on e-bay.
Adam Is still the  Elders Quorum president in our ward and rides his new snowmobile every chance he gets.
As a family, we built a tree house this year and went on some pretty great camping trips. We're happy to be on this journey together. Still loving, learning, giving and forgiving.
We look forward to all 2013 has to offer.


  1. I love that you sold ugly sweaters to pay for Christmas!! That is awesome! You have such a wonderful little family! Someday soon we need to get our families together...I think our kids would have a blast with each other! :)

  2. I love this update on your kids. They are so cute and I can't believe how big they are getting! Sometimes I think back to when they were in my Sunbeams class and remember their beautiful spirits. I'll always be grateful for your invitation to have me over for dinner to meet them. I'm not sure why I thought of that today, but I did. You are so great Ruth. I love your cute kiddos!
