It’s been a year full of fun (trips to the coast, mountains & Portland),
love (11th anniversary),
art (Merra is very liberal with what she considers a canvas),
crafts (always with the crafts:),
activities (soccer, running, ballet, hockey (well, he tried it…), baseball, swimming),
heartbreak (we miss you, Don),
small victories (no trips to the ER in 2009, she typed with 15 days left in the year & hope in her heart),
big victories (Brian’s first half marathon!)
& huge victories (Go Ducks!).
Through it all we have continued to just
laugh when things are funny,
cry when things are sad
& hold on to each other.
What else are you gonna do, right? :)
This Christmas & in 2010 we hope that you keep the people who aren’t here in your heart with good memories
& that you love the people who are
near you the best way you can.
God bless you & your family,
always with love…
Brian, emily, Quinn & Merra
