Our 2011 Christmas Card

Our year in a nutshell!

We started 2011 in Meridian, MS.
In May, we officially moved from Minot, ND to northern CA
and bought a home with 5 acres. 
We sold our N.D. home last December, this spring it and our rental property (the barn shaped one below) got flooded and will be knocked down soon.

My handsome soldier will continue to instruct in the MC-12 at Beale AFB.  

We went to Alabama for 5 weeks of Squadron Officer School.

I have stayed busy sewing
and have opened up an online  store at 
I also started blogging a little bit
At church I was the Gospel Doctrine teacher for 6 months and
just got called as the Primary 1st Counselor!

We’ve been very blessed and look forward to hopefully
staying put for a couple of years! 

May God bless y’all!
