Christmas Card 2009


Well, I had my reasons for being late this year....she is adorable...sweet, beautiful and just plain perfect!
Here is our Christmas card for 2009!


(pictures were taken by my father-in-law) 

This year I wrote a rhyme, instead of a newsletter. I thought I'd share it with all of you, since I couldn't send everyone of you a card.


Fear not all you worriers; this might not get to you on time,
For we had a good reason to be late in two thousand and nine.
No more boring letters, so sit back this year,
And enjoy a recap of our memories and cheer.
Lets start at the top with the boss of this clan,
Kelly and Katie have come up with a plan.
It’s a daycare they’ll run; together they’ll have so much fun.
Kelly is still working on keeping her own business going,
Each year getting more clients, by word of mouth, it keeps growing.
When Brian’s not working and finds some spare time,
He enjoys playing any sport or poker online.
His softball team had a pretty decent year, when they weren’t playing a game,
They drank their fair share of beer.
We all go to the games, to cheer the Bombers on,
Did I mention this summer, he ran his first full marathon?!
Addicted to baseball and not much more, our little all star just turned four.
Chase is our little comedian and Energizer Bunny,
He is sure to keep you on your toes and he is pretty funny.
It’s school he is awaiting; he can’t wait to go,
He loves learning new things, as much as playing in the snow.
Our princess Abigail, who now is two,
She is our actress and drama queen, through and through.
She loves playing with babies and reading book after book,
She’ll never turn down dancing to a song, or helping mommy cook.
She loves to be outside and has a great love for pets,
She is getting to be like her brother, she has a memory that never forgets.
Now for the reason this letter might have reached you late,
We have welcomed a new little bundle of joy to our very full plate.
Makenzie Grace has finally arrived,
Believe it or not, we aren’t sleep deprived.
She fits in great with our family, now of five,
She definitely took her sweet time to arrive.
With our family now growing, we are running out of room,
We bought a new house, we’ll be moving in soon.
In Brooklyn Park, we will now reside,
With Brian’s sister and her husband along for the ride.
When we have some quiet time to think about our blessings all year through,
we focus on our family and our friends and appreciate the gift of knowing you.
If we ever fail to keep in touch, sometimes at this we bomb,
You can tag along with all of our adventures, at Oxboroughchaos dot com.
So we bid you great things from our full little den,
We wish you the very best for two thousand ten!
