Merry Christmas Eve!
Although I had every intention of sending out a Christmas card this year, it seems I might be a little late in the game 😉 . But to let you all know how very much we love you (from Colorado to Texas to Missouri to Vancouver to Washington and beyond) here is our online Christmas card to you!
This year has been FULL. We have so much to be thankful for! Here are a few (yeah right… a bunch!) of our favorite things about 2011…
Skiing with family & friends, catan nights, a first of what will be many double dates with dear friends to New Belgium, weddings for people we love in Idaho and Texas, wisdom teeth removal (ugh!), trips to TX filled with family/friends/food/fishing, David starting his new job & a late night celebration at Red Robin (yum), learned what an M16 is (ha), a weekend getaway to the sand dunes with the fam, buying our first home near some of the best of people (thank you so much to all who helped us move), having my grandparents visit & help unpack us, getting to live with an incredible roommate/friend/sister, learning about sex trade & taking part in a benefit concert for Courage Homes, getting to know better the amazing people at Emmaus & gaining a few new friends who know it’s not “pop” it’s “coke”! 😉 , Sunday night dinners with the Hamiltons, celebrating one year of marriage (best decision ever), our new addition to the family (our little puppy Coda), treasured visits to our new home (thank you for coming), starting work at a new location with a great co-worker, my “on-the-way-home-from-work” phone conversations, a trip to vail for a dear friend’s birthday, learning about the very best iced coffee via Kara, a trip to a Mexican beach (first class thanks to an amazing brother), watching our adorable niece and nephew grow so quickly, Thanksgiving in Houston with treasured hugs & margs with friends, black friday shopping with my mom, an early Christmas in Chick-fil-a with K&K, moving the Carlson Grandparents near by, decorating for Christmas, putting up our nativity (thank you!!), skiing again, girls’ night Christmas cookies, getting an exciting phone call (Mary and Michael are engaged!!) and finally my first Colorado Hamilton Christmas!!!
Whew… if you didn’t know that I can be incredibly long-winded, you do now! In case you didn’t make it through all of that, the point is… you all have helped make this year complete. We wish you all a very Merry Christmas filled with joy, laughter, and peace. You all are so very treasured to us!
So, Merry Christmas!!! Love, The Hamiltons!!
Is. 9:6 “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
