Christmas Letter


We visited Santa and Mrs.

Dearest Family and Friends, 2010

I can’t believe it is the end of the year already. Time flies when you’re having Fun!!!! We all feel we have truly been blessed this year. Here’s a highlight of those blessings…. Starting with our youngest and going up from there.

EDEN- Little Miss Eden joined our family just two short months ago. She came a week earlier that her 10-10-10 due date but we still think 10-5-10 is a cool birthday. She loves to have smoochies from her big sister and brother. Eden frequently has one of them begging to hold her. Munchie (as we call her) looks like one of our family, but that look is all her own. She love, love, LOVES to be held and is learning to sleep through the night. She is a perfect addition to our little family and is a complete joy to have.

ALEX- Gator started preschool in the fall. He constantly has a bruise of some sort on his face/head and sometimes a bruise on top of a bruise. He is all boy! He loves to play with cars and trucks, ride his scooter and have play dates. He is still really small and sometimes I forget he is three and a half, until he spouts off a funny comment. His health has been amazing this year. We are anticipating one more planned open heart surgery called the Fontan; which they are telling us is needed sometime this next year. We have been fortunate to do so many fun things because of Gator and those willing to help us make happy memories with him. Hope Kids sent our family to a real-live Monster truck show! It was awesome and we still hear about it. Intermountain Healing Hearts had Heart camp, picnic, and Heart Walk that also includes the family. We love seeing our heart friends at these events.

RYLEIGH- Ry graduated from Preschool, had her dance performance, played all summer long and started Kindergarten this fall. She is taking a break from dance this year except for kids Zumba Atomic at the rec-center. Ry’s favorite things are having her friends over to play and helping mom. She is my very best helper. She also loves having “dates” with anyone who will take her out and spend money on her. She is learning to read and has done a great job at sounding things out. There goes the days of daddy and mommy spelling out secrets in front of her.

BRYNN- Holy cow, I am just trying to keep up with three kids and their schedules. I recently accepted a new and exciting church calling to be the Evening Relief Society Meeting Coordinator. I call it the good old ERSMC! Most know it as the home making leader. I am going to miss my 16-17 Sunday school class. This was also my last year on the board for Intermountain Healing Hearts as the secretary. I will now be part of the executive board. I still want to be involved just not so hands on right now. Three years is a great time frame to want to hand over some of that responsibility to someone else. I am still making people beautiful in my home Salon. I enjoy visiting with my clients and talking “adult” with them.

JEFF-Jeff is busy as ever. He is an amazing daddy to his kiddos and a wonderful hubby to me. He officially opened his business, Copper Canyon Design, in May with his business partner and friend Nic. We have been fortunate in the tough economy to have work and to have enough that I can stay home with the kids. He is part of the bishopric in our ward, going on three years. He loves our ward and really does a fantastic job. He is continually doing his honey-do list which included the garage cabinets, a new main bath cabinet and Ry’s bedroom in the basement.

Well that’s our family in a nutshell, busy and happy. We are blessed by our Father in Heaven to have all of these blessings. We remember the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ at this time of year and we are grateful for one of our biggest blessings, to have a testimony of Him and all that He has done for us. We are also thankful for all of you, we feel lucky to know you all.

Best wishes to Each and Everyone.

We “LUB” You!
Jeff, Brynn, Ryleigh, Alex and Eden Homer
