2014 has been a busy one, but aren’t they all?
We went to Disney World with the Kelley side of the family in February. That’s right, other side of the country, four days at amusement parks with a four month old…) Kendall was great and we had a great trip. As always great to spend time with family.
We went to Twin Lakes with the Bonners in July. The kids LOVED playing with cousins, swimming, tubing, knee boarding. I enjoyed wakeboarding after a few seasons off and Steve was, as always, in heaven skiing and wakeboarding on the lake.
Steve’s life became complete this summer when we became boat owners. He got his dream boat and we’ve made good use of it. We celebrated our tenth anniversary in June. I honestly can’t believe that it’s been ten years! We’ve got a fun trip in the works.
Carson turned six last month and is a giant kindergartener. Seriously, he is at least a head taller than all the other kids. He loves kindergarten and is doing so well! It’s amazing how much he is learning every day. His speech also continues to improve. He is in karate and it is hilarious to watch! His favorite activity is wake boarding with Steve behind the boat.
Luke will be four on Christmas Eve. He is in preschool and loves it. Like Carson his speech is improving with his therapy. It’s taken months and months but he is (almost) potty trained. He loves playdates, Mickey Mouse, popcorn, and snuggling. Luke can be your best friend or your worst nightmare. He keeps us on our toes...The closer he gets to four the more rational he is becoming. Fingers crossed!
Kendall is adored by all in the family, especially her brothers! They are so excited each morning to get her out of her crib and play with her. Carson worships the ground she crawls on. It is so cute to watch him with her. She is such an easy girl. She is happy and fun. Kendall is 13 months now and is hardly standing and nowhere near close to walking. None of us mind. I am happy she’s taking her time.
Steve is going on ten years at Shell. He loves his work for the most part and is very happy at the Martinez refinery. As stated before Steve is a boat owner now and the lake is his happy place. =) He is ward clerk at church and says it’s the best calling.
I am working hard at maintaining my sanity on a daily basis. =) Lately I’ve been trying to step back and enjoy all the little things and the craziness of young kids. We do have fun though! I still am primary president at church and enjoy working with and teaching the children.
We wish you all the joy that the Christmas season brings and a happy 2015!
Lots of Love,The Bonner Family
