Wasn’t I just writing the 2008 Christmas letter? It seems each year goes by faster than the last. 2009 was filled with changes and blessings for our family - here’s an update!
Again this year, we welcomed a new baby into the family! Our sweet boy, Bennett Isaiah, was born on November 17 and checked in at 7 lbs, 15 oz, 20 ¾ in. He looks a lot like Cameron, but has darker hair and eyes like Elly. He is a pretty good sleeper, and “goes with the flow” like a champ – but what choice do you have with two older siblings 3 and under?! Bennett means “blessed,” and we feel his name is a perfect reflection of our feelings – he’s another precious blessing from our Heavenly Father!
Elly is our independent, energetic little girl – she’s well-prepared to hang tough with her two brothers! She goes for what she wants 100 percent – and usually what she wants is what Cameron wants, too, making for many heated “conversations” throughout the day! She loves running full speed around the house, getting tickled by Daddy, drinking big cups of chocolate milk and playing sweetly with her baby dolls – such fun to watch.
Cameron continues to amaze us with all the information he remembers and retains. He picks things up from TV shows, our conversations, trips to the store…EVERYWHERE! My mom came and gave him an H1N1 shot last week, and since then, he has been asking and asking for another “baccination” from Grandma.
Another big change for our family this year was our move back to central

I’m staying home with our three babies (they are all still babies, right?) We spend our days playing all kinds of make-believe, singing, dancing, and watching Veggie Tales. I am incredibly thankful I can be at home with my kids each day – and even though I am, the time still seems to fly by! I’m not coaching right now, but really itching for the weather to turn a bit so I can get outside and run – I’m ready to be back in 5K shape!
