Happy Holidays

Environmentally friendly?  Cheap?  Lazy?  Efficient?  Call it what you want, here is your Christmas card for the year!
This year has been an eventful one for us, with many exciting changes.

Here is the short list, in time order:
We bought our first house
Andrew finished his student teaching and graduated with a Music Performance and Music Education degree.
Isla Scout joins our family! 
Lauriel finishes her Master's in Education
Lauriel starting teaching two classes at Western Washington University

We are busy, every day, living a life that seems too good to be true. We have been lucky enough to have Andrew stay home with Scout during the day while Lauriel continues to teach middle school special education. One evening a week she teaches up at WWU, with an additional online class that she works on from home. Two evenings a week, Andrew teaches private trumpet lessons, his studio is growing almost weekly! In spite of our crazy schedules, we find time to soak up each others company and indulge in a ridiculous amount of fun projects.  We are enjoying owning our own home, watching Lucy romp around our acre lot, and admiring the beautiful view our of our windows. Scout is growing and changing on a daily basis, today she is smiling big smiles with her two front teeth (bottom), rocking back and forth on all fours, and buzzing her lips to make us laugh. This may be out of date by the time you are reading this post!  We are thoroughly enjoying our happy, funny baby!

We hope you are doing well this holiday season and would love to hear from you!
