2010 – The Year in Review

 - by Brittny

I sent out our Christmas cards this year with a link to our blog rather than a full newsletter.  I figure most people who we send Christmas cards to are followers of our blog anyways and that’s like an intense, year-round Christmas newsletter.  But I decided that I ought to have a brief recap of our year for those who just want to hit the highlights.  So I posted 4 pictures on the inside of our card that I feel show the most important things that happened this year, and I’ll explain them in more detail here –

First of all, Sam.  This year has been all about Sam.  He turned one this year and it has been absolutely delightful watching our little baby grow into a bouncing toddler.  He walks and talks and is so much fun to have around.  He’s always getting into something new but it makes every day an adventure.  He’s getting really excited for…

His new baby brother who will be born in April!  We haven’t yet settled on a name for our new addition but hopefully that will be coming soon.  We’re excited to be adding another little boy to our family.  Sam is especially excited and really wanted us to get the baby for Christmas, but we have since convinced him that we can have the baby for Easter instead.  Sam spends a fair amount of time “playing with” the baby, by kissing my stomach and drumming on it etc.  His new favorite trick is to put his hands on either side of my stomach and say that he wants to “carry baby”.  Hopefully this enthusiasm will last after the baby is actually here.

Another exciting change is Eric’s new job at Adobe.  He is now the Emerging Business Manager for the Digital Home (yeah, the new title is a mouthful) and loving every minute of his new job.  He gets to spend his days playing with video game consoles, IP TVs and other cool technologies while he figures out new ways to integrate Adobe’s products with those new technologies.  Maybe it’s not quite as glamorous as all that, but he still says it’s his dream job.  Adobe is moving their campus in the next couple of years to Lehi.  With the new position and the new campus it meant it was time for…

A new house
!  We are currently completing the construction on our first home.  It is about 5 minutes from where the new Adobe campus will be.  The house has a Draper address, although it’s on the Utah County side of the mountains (much closer to Highland, Alpine and Lehi really).  We’re up in the mountains a little bit so it’s out of the bustle of the city and (more importantly) the pollution in the valley, but it’s not very far out of the way so we’re not stranded away from civilization either.  We’re very excited to be moving in  at the end of this year.

So, that should about cover the main highlights of the year for us.  We hope this season brings you joy, love and peace.
