In lieu of holiday cards by snail mail this year, I've decided to go digital. Quick notes on our year:
Shane- Our baby turned seven this November! He continues to be the major athlete, loving soccer and baseball and trying roller hockey with his big brother this winter. He also started piano lessons this fall and played his first recital. He adores his first grade teacher and continues to be a sweet and loving boy. The kid is obsessed with all things Lego, Pokemon and video games.
Bobby- Bobby has been a busy eight year old! He has played roller hockey all year and has improved on his skills tremendously. This is his second year of playing piano and he has been doing awesome! He wants to move on to guitar next. Bobby is doing great in third grade, loves Lego building, collecting Pokemon cards and playing with his friends.
Kelly- With this fickle economy, I had to say goodbye to my writing gigs for a few publications in print and online. I stayed busy with the boys and by joining the school PTA board and working as a crossing guard and yard duty this fall. I also started piano lessons with the boys! I'm hoping the writing picks up in 2012, but meanwhile you'll find me keeping the kids safe in the school crosswalk and playing soccer/baseball/hockey mom!
Robbie- Robbie continues to manage two garbage company shops in the East Bay. He works long hours but enjoys the challenge. He has also done quite a bit of work on our house, installing new floors and doors and lots of painting.
We want to wish all of our family and friends a peaceful holiday season and a wonderful new year. And for a final laugh, the boys wanted to send you all this holiday video:
