Ally (10) hasn't relinquished her place as Miss Creative. She has also officially "caught up" to Benji in school by joining the 5th and 6th grade combination class. Hyrum is the apple of her eye especially when he gives her all of the hugs and kisses that she requests.
Hyrum (2) has a very curious, helpful nature. He helps us by pouring his own cereal and milk (even if it goes all over the table). He has redecorated the tree by eating all of the candy canes within reach. He appointed himself our family photographer. He's particularly good at feet and eyes. In short, he makes us all smile!
Ben was laid-off in July and is still trying to determine which way life will take him next. He has enjoyed doing things for his wife (waking up with the kids, projects, cooking), finishing his own projects and being able to 'take' the holidays off.
The trials of life continue to refine and the Lord continues to bless. Love to you all,
