Here's a quick update on our family:
Mark: enjoys his new job. He's quite busy traveling but we make the most of the time he spends with us. Lately he likes to spend his free time working on the addition to the house, texting (especially his daughters) and talking to his lovely wife on the phone when he's away on business trips.
Arline: enjoys staying home and working on the new addition to the house! It will be done by Christmas, yay!!! She also keeps herself busy with Christmas shopping, taking care of the boys (Cameron and Cody) and making sure the household is running smoothly. She also likes talking to her daughters on the phone, who are both away at college.
Lauren: is currently in Idaho with her husband, Jeff and her daughter Ava (9 months old). She's enjoying being a new wife and mother, studying to become a Psychologist, and talking to her mom, dad and sister all the time! She can't wait to graduate so she can focus on her family and that's it! No more homework!
Jeff: (our son-in-law)is up in Idaho with Lauren and Ava. He keeps busy working at his internship, going to school to become a Mechanical Engineer, and spending time with his family and friends. He, too, is waiting for that glorious day when there will be no more homework...only to move on to...graduate school and more homework. He works so hard!
Kelsey: is enjoying living in Provo, going to school majoring in Music Media, and singing in her women's accapella group, Noteworthy. She keeps busy with school, work, and having fun with her friends and roommates. She, too, spends lots of time talking and texting to her family.
Cameron: loves high school and especially Vocal Point, which is the show choir that he's in this year. He loves school, writing, art, reading, and hanging out with his family and friends. He misses both his sisters, who are away at college, very much!
Cody: loves the sixth grade and his new school (now he's in middle school...how time flies!) He enjoys hanging out with his friends, going to school, playing on his new Nintendo DS, and hanging out with his family. Cody is also very creative. Both Cameron and Cody think of the most unique and coolest things!
Ava: (our granddaughter) is as healthy and active as ever! She loves spending all day with mommy (Lauren) and nights with daddy (Jeff) and weekends with the both of them! She's such an entertainer! She laughs, smiles, and wrinkles her nose at everyone! She just recently learned to say "dada" and says it all the time! She loves to make messes, climb on everything, and jump on her mommy and daddy's bed. She loves all of her family, especially Grandpa because he makes funny faces at her that make her laugh!
Our Family: So there's our family update. We love it when we're all together! We love to laugh together, travel together, eat together, and especially sing together! Families are Forever!
