Merry Christmas

It has been so long since I have blogged. Things have been so crazy. I can't believe that Christmas is almost here.

I decided instead of sending out cards this year, I am going to blog and email a little letter to tell everyone how our year went.

We will start with Paul. He is still driving for John Pocock and loves trucking except for the being away from the family part. John is so good to us and Paul really enjoys working for him.

They released Paul from the Elders Quoram Presidency and now he is teaching the 14 yr old Sunday School class. I think he enjoys it.

I am busy as usually raising 3 very busy kids. I am still doing a little bit of hair out of the house and on Mondays I work for 4 hours at a transitional rehab for elderly people doing hair and I love it, the only downfall is I get to attached to my patients. I have mostly been focusing on our ACN business and have traveled a little this past year for conferences to Detroit, New Jersey and Anaheim California. I just got home from Cali and had a chance to visit a very good friend in Huntington Beach. It was so much fun to spend time with her.

Hayden, played football this year, there team had a hard year and didn't win one game, but Hayden did awesome and had 9 interceptions and several touchdowns. The kid always has a ball in his hand. He is such an incredible athlete. He is also getting amazing grades and has aced every spelling test this year he is in 4th grade. He loves spending time with his friends, and the phone rings off the hook with friends calling to play. He is also in scouts and enjoys that. Hayden is an awesome help and has been doing a little babisitting for me know and then. He will always be my little bud.

Miss Maycee, we love this girl, she has such a sense of imagination. She is also playing office and can walk better in my heals that I can( I am not even kidding.) Maycee loves school, mostly the social part. She is trying really hard to keep up. I think that if she spent less time talking and more working she would be a super student. (Poor girl got her mothers talking ability.) Maycee also loves to be with her friends. She loves saying the prayer before meals and at bedtime and puts a lot of thought into them. Maycee loves to cuddle on the couch with Mom and can't wait for the weekends for Dad to get home. She is our little Princess Pie and we don't know what we would do without her.

Carson, I think that this boy must be the busiest kid on the planet. Last week when I was getting dressed he flushed a liter of Shampoo down the toilet, I mean the bottle not just the shampoo. That same day he poured almost an entire bottle of dish soap in the dishwasher also fun to clean out. If I can't find something, it is usually in the vase in my room. He has just started to fold his arms and bow his head for prayer and we says 5-10 prayers a meal now. Carson doesn't say hi or bye, he will blow you a giant kiss as loud as possible, these he give freely today in fact every person we passed in the aisles of the store got one. He can also count this is because he spend so much time in the corner, sometimes will go to the corner and count himself if he is mad at me. Carson LOVES his Daddy and will have nothing to do with me when Paul is anywhere around. He has a sense of humor like his Dad and loves to tease. He also loves tractors.

Well that is our family news.

We want all of you to know how Grateful for the birth of our Savior. We wish you all a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS, and my we all remember the true meaning of the season.

We LOVE you all.

The Woods!
