Hello 2011

I'd like to say good-bye to 2010. Like a good roller coaster-
it had it's ups and downs- moments of exhilaration and times that made me nauseous. It wasn't a bad year, but it could've been better. Luckily, time flies when you have this many gray hairs (which no one sees thanks to L'oreal.). When you think about it, this year will zoom past as well. We talked about this year at FHE, and all the events that will be happening. Here's a run-down of the things that will make a great "Christmas Letter" for 2011.



  • We'll have 9 birthdays, some more monumental than others. We will turn 4, 8, 11, 12, 15, 17, 19, 42 and one of us will be 45. (I just felt 3 more hairs turn gray.)

  • That means, we'll have a baptism, and of course, cub scouts.

  • One more priesthood holder and, as he reminds me, participant in weekly young men's activities.

  • One step closer to a dating daughter. Heaven help us all.

  • That daughter will enter high school- heaven help those boys!

  • High school graduation- fingers crossed. If he makes it, there will be a HUGE celebration.

  • Another senior in HS and a new student in jr. high.

  • And, the biggest event we're anticipating- a mission call. This one gives me butterflies every time I think of it.

Of course, there will be much to fill the days in between. Surprises, good and bad. That's just the way it goes. I will cling to my faith that I can get through whatever time may bring. And, also, the hope that the year will bring my fondest wish- a publisher.


Here's hoping your new year, really the whole year, will be happy and filled with good surprises.
