From Our Family to Yours

This December has been filled with happy memories and wonderful time spent together as a family. We started off the month with Miss Ava's birthday-- I can't believe she's now three years old! She is such a blessing to our family. She is full of JOY and is always ready with a quick smile and a warm hug. She loves to dance and sing wherever she goes. We are so grateful she has joined our family as baby number ten! What would we do without her sunshine in our lives?

Russell is a wonderful father.

Next came Russell's forty-first birthday. It never ceases to amaze me how much we grow in love for each other over the years. He has one of the kindest hearts I have ever known, and I feel privileged to know that it belongs to me! We spent a lovely day together, including taking the middle and little kids to the park for a picnic lunch of pizza and playing. We had a great time talking and swinging in the gorgeous weather while the kids played on the playground equipment. (Have I mentioned why I love living in AZ?) Later that night we went to the Hale Theatre's live production of "A Christmas Carol." It was so fun to attend a play together again! Since we met in a show, and then studied together as Theatre majors in college, it's a lot of fun to go back to our "roots," now and then.

The rest of the month has been filled with movie nights, multiple trips to stores, Spirit-filled sacred moments, wrapping marathons, and hours and hours of Christmas music blaring. I've loved every minute of it!

We love and miss our wonderful families, but we're also grateful we got to see so many of you this past summer and fall. We hope all our awesome friends and family had a very Merry Christmas and we wish you all the very best in the year 2012!!!

Lots of love,
The K Family in AZ :-)
