Christmas card 2016

As we started 2016 we had no idea what changes we would experience. Raven graduated high school from Summit Academy, turned 18 and started college at UVU.  img_0174-1

 

Sidnee turned 16 and got her license. She thought she could eat these 16 tacos, but didn’t come close.  Jill Clark made her the special birthday hat.  Sidnee started a new school and played soccer.img_1409

 

Mason turned 13 and started a new school. He served as the Deacon’s Quorum President for a while in Eagle Mountain. He has spent quite a bit of time outdoors cliff jumping, mountain biking and hiking.img_2595-1

 

Jaxon started a new school and learned to be a confident swimmer in the North Umpqua river. He participated in the pie eating contest at the Fall Festival in Roseburg. He didn’t feel so good when he was finished.img_1592

Steve’s cousin Paige was finishing her mission in Eugene recently. Her last city was Roseburg, and we were able to see her a few times. This was at Stake Conference the day before she left.img_1617

 

Our biggest change came when we moved from Utah to Oregon. In April we felt like it was time to move, but we didn’t know how or where. We came to Roseburg, Oregon to visit Shawn and Jill Clark in July and fell in love with Roseburg. They brought us to Tioga bridge in Glide, and we were blown away by how beautiful the area was.  Steve was able to get a job transfer with Chase and we made the move in late August.  The move has been challenging at times, but we know it was the right thing to do.  We miss family and friends (Idaho, Utah and New Jersey), but we love being surrounded by nature.  We hope this holiday season finds everyone safe and healthy.  We love and miss all of you.img_1662
