So I am behind on posts, I need to upload Jasmin's videos of her school program and I will soon, lots of pictures too...we just have been recovering still so everything is behind.
Here is the update letter, when you get your christmas card from us ( sometime like next week I will mail them :) ) it directs you here for the letter and pictures. So here goes.
One word can describe this year and that is FAST! Where did it go? We got pregnant in March and somehow it was December before we knew it. We tried to fill the summer with as much as we could, tons of parades, Jasmin took a tumbling class, Seven Peaks season passes with Aunties and Uncles so went there a couple times a week. Then school started, so off to Orem 3 times a week for that; then Jasmin made the competition team so dance 2 times a week... poor Ryken is so ready to be in school, he cannot wait until next year. He is so full of energy, we might have to look into spring soccer this year.
Christmas came early for our family, 16 days early to be exact. Zackary was born on Dec 9th, and has been a joy since. Both Jasmin and Ryken love him; Ryken can't wait for a buddy to play with and Jasmin loves holding him and kissing his head. Mommy and Daddy love how mellow our little guy is.
Steve and I are well. He is still at Pepsi and I still sell Close to my Heart, Usborne, and now Scentsy from home. We both enjoyed playing basketball with our ward this year and keep busy with our church callings ( Steve is still assistant cub scout master and I enrichment coordinator and both of us still on ward activities committee. )
We look forward to 2011, hopefully it will bring good fortune in the shape of us selling our home and getting a bigger one now that we are a family of 5. We wish all those who are reading this many blessings and good health to you and your loved ones.
Merry Christmas! And may your new year be very happy!

So sad story about the concert. Jasmin's solo was number 2 of the night, that part isn't sad but awesome! During her performance she kept staring at the ground and moving stage right ( or left? ) when she was supposed to be centered. SO after she was done and I head back to help her change, I was like ready to question what happened... she knows that routine and LOVES to perform it. I get back there and she is almost in tears because apparently she saw a big white spider on the stage next to her when she started. Seriously, we saw kids playing with this spider before hand and I almost squished it and totally regretted not. There are parts in the number where she is on the ground, so can see why it was freaking her out. When asked why she didn't stomp on it, she said "that wasn't part of my dance" Hilarious :D
