We hope your year has been as pleasant as ours.  We enjoyed the mild winter.  Ayden was able to go sledding and he’s looking forward to doing it again once the snow flies (and hopefully not too soon).  Ayden turned 3 in April.  He had a wonderful summer which included golfing with Mom & Dad as well as swimming with his friends.  Ayden started preschool in September.  This year they are working on recognizing the alphabet and writing their names.  He loves going so he can see all of his friends and anxiously awaits the chance to bring home the snack bucket.


In October, we welcomed Ayden’s new sister, Ayvarie Kae.  She was born on October 15th weighing in at 7 pounds, 7 ounces, and was 21 inches long.  Ayvarie had a lot of hair, just as her brother did when he was born.  We actually thought we had another Ayden on our hands – they looked so much alike!


We’re planning to have Ayvarie baptized after the holidays.  Other than that, we’re just looking forward to another great year.  We hope all is well with you and your family!
