CJ & Steph bought a house this year, 2 doors down from where they were renting! They are settling in to Gilbert life. CJ works at Kidtastics, if you're looking for a good pediatric dentist!
Paul & Skye are busy as ever with him working for K12 Defense & her baking/catering business. I got to go to Lagoon with them this year! Also Reed turned 1 year old! (I know everyone had a birthday this year, but I'm going to highlight the little ones & their milestone birthday)
Jerry & Jess also super busy (I'm sure they all are, but we see it with Paul & Jerry daily) Jess still an awesome daycare giver! We were blessed to have a Jesus look-a-like for most of the year! (I loved it!) Also Kenzie turned 2!
Brandee is such an awesome mommy! Working at Epic Fine Dining, and Marley turned 1 also, while we were at the beach house. Koby changed jobs and also an awesome daddy! She surprised us and came to AZ for our 35th family (wedding) anniversary, and planned an awesome surprise party!
Kyle has the biggest news! He did fall in love (see last years Elf video) and asked Allison McHugh to be his eternal companion! They are getting married on February 3, 2018, and we hope you all can come celebrate with us!
Jenni has moved back to Arizona and has a cute new family member! She kind of disappeared from the family for a bit, but is reaching out to a few of us as of late. We pray for her always. She is a loving yet frustrated mom (as anyone who has had a puppy will relate) to her fur child (as she calls him) Introducing PUMBA!
I did make one quick trip to Mukilteo, WA to see Nikki & the boys! Hoping to both get up there this next year! The boys are growing into amazing, athletic, academic young men (lots of As! I'm sure their grades are too!)
Things with the business are picking up since we had our first sale of our new product (SAU). We love working with Jerry & Paul, and hope that 2018 will bring success in the business for all of us! Chuck & Paul were able to go to Washington DC to demonstrate, while Jerry kept things running here. One of our funnest jobs this year was at Strawberry Reservoir, UT in Oct. We had everyone but CJs family come take advantage of the cool cabin we rented.
We have a great team in the company, and are blessed to work with our great people!
P.S. Chuck got to drive a cool car around for a little while, and took me for a surprise trip for my birthday to Bearizona!
