BC: Our Family's 2011 Highlights | Thomas: Thomas started off the year coaching Christopher's basketball team, then also coached Christopher's baseball teams. His fierce competitive side came out during our Alaskan cruise as he entered and won several contests - he has the medals to prove it! And yes, Thomas had two surgeries this year - bone marrow donation in August and ACL replacement in November. Karen: Karen's "busy season" was interrupted by her father's heart attack and surgery in March. She's thankful for a fabulous husband, wonderful friends and an understanding boss who covered for her at home, school & work while she stayed in LA for a week to be with her parents and brother. Most of all, she thanks God that her dad recovered and is now doing well! Karen also enjoyed an awesome long weekend in Las Vegas with her girlfriends (sans hubbies and kids) in July and the best cruise ever to Alaska with three other families in August! Christopher: Christopher learned how to ride a bike and ski this year! He also discovered a passion for baseball, bey blades and the iPad2. His keen interest in animals, nature & science has remained steadfast. His highlights from our vacation included seeing dolphins swim by the ship and visiting the salmon hatchery. Katrina: Katrina started kindergarten this Fall and loves being at the same school as her big brother. She also learned how to ride a bike and ski this year. And she was the only person in our family who saw whales on our vacation while she was in the ship's "kid zone"!
FC: Merry Christmas 2011 | May God bless you with peace, joy and love this upcoming year! Thomas, Karen, Christopher and Katrina
