Merry Christmas from our Family to Yours!!!
Each year, we write an annual Christmas Letter to send out with our Christmas Cards. I thought it would be fun to share it here with all of you, my amazing Quilting Friends :)
Dear Family and Friends,
Obviously the big news of the year is that the Dodgers won the World Series. All else seems to pale in comparison but I’ll do my best to update you on some of the other things that have happened this past year.
Spencer is halfway through his senior year of high
school. While he will graduate from Cedar High he is definitely a
Jessica, also a student at
Kristian is in the middle of his 8th grade year at Cedar Middle. He has been riding with the Iron Giants mountain bike team for the past two seasons. Much to the pleasure of his father, he loves it. Like Spencer he has a fascination for Magic the Gathering that I just don’t understand. He is looking forward to starting high school next year. Due to his mountain biking habit he will be my first child to not run cross country in the summer though with Grandpa retiring I’m not sure anyone will notice.
Kamryn moved from the elementary to the middle school this year with her starting 6th grade. She seems to be a little bit of all her older siblings with a little bit of mountain biking, Magic and Dodgers mixed together. She has also enjoyed learning the flute in band this year and taking piano lessons from her aunt. She has worked very hard in her studies and is beginning to enjoy reading.
Jocelyn is still very much the baby of the family. We don’t even try to hide it. This year on her birthday she asked her teacher if she got a crown at school. Upon learning that they don’t do that in 3rd grade she made her own crown and proceeded to wear it all day. Josie sings all day long. She doesn’t even seem to know that she is singing at times. If the house is quiet you know Josie isn’t home. We try not to spoil her but she gets away with a lot, but in the struggle between parents and children the other kids seem to be able to use that to their advantage so it all seems to work out.
Melissa continues to be as busy as ever with her quilting. She continues to design quilts and even dabbled in creating her own fabric this year. (Edit - If you are still reading, I will share more of this soon :) She has been serving as the young women’s president for the past few years and loves being with the youth of the ward. She is certainly the glue that keeps us together as is evidenced by the chaos that ensues when she goes off to teach as some quilting retreat (though that hasn’t happened as much during the pandemic).
Not too much has changed for me except that everything has changed since the Dodgers won the World Series. Every day starts with birds singing, the sun shining and all is right in the world. It’s a good life.
We wish you all the best as this year comes to a close. We are grateful for this time of year to reflect on the Savior and his life.
The Corry Family
