At the beginning of the year Morgan turned 5! He had a wonderful birthday party at Chuck E Cheese with lots of his friends. He "graduated" from Preschool at Christ Church School (a 2 day a week program), and was ready to take on Kindergarten at Lexington Creek Elementary. He is having some difficulty with the transiting to a full 5 day a week school program, but things are looking up, and with the new year and a wonderful teacher Mrs. Engle we hope things will begin to be even better. Morgan lost his first teeth in August, and is so proud he showed everyone the gap in his teeth. Morgan loves to play computer games, Legos, reading with Mom and Dad, any thing Star Wars, and still loves his dinosaurs and dragons!!

Both boys loved swimming this summer at Grandma Elaine's and Grandma Marty's house (they both have pools). Morgan picked up where he left of last year and swam like a fish. He learned to float on his back, dive down the bottom to pick up toys, jumping of diving boards, cannonballs, and right at the end of the summer the beginning of diving and breathing while he swims across the pool. Very possible he might join swim team this summer. Brandon took to the water like a fish. He loved to jump in from the side, and had no problem going under the water. He just popped right up (with a little help) and smiled away and gave the baby sign language of "more". He even learned to push off from the stairs in the pool and swim towards you, about 3 feet away, head underwater and all.

Mike is working full time with the Texas National Guard, but he now is working at Ellington Field. This is a joint base for both the Air Force and Army located right near NASA, about a 35 minute drive from our house. He still reports once a month to the Armory to train his soldiers, as he is the C Company Commander of the 72nd BSTB. Morgan is so proud of his Daddy being a soldier as he has learned more about it while being in school during the Veteran's day events in November

We continue to miss our daughter Kristen. She would have been 3 this past October. One thing that she has taught me is that life is way to short, so take advantage of every moment, and love the ones around you with all your heart. We love and miss you Kristen.

We hope that the new year brings you lots of joy and happiness!
From our family to yours, Merry Christmas!!
