What a year! And dare I say in a good way? Seems like a long time since we've been able to say that, doesn't it?! I mean, look how far we've come since I wrote my first letter...
This past year has flown by with two massively massive "projects" - our home renovation and the boys starting school! I never thought I'd survive either of them, but lo and behold here I am still standing.
So here's what I ask for in the wake of this amazing year:
Please let us continue the upward swing of this momentum we are on. Things are finally starting to go well for our family and I think you can agree it's been a long time coming. The kids are happy and settled in school and activities, surrounded by friends who adore them. Not only do we have a roof over our heads, but a beautiful, functional one that will help us to take care of Asher safely now and in the future. We have a reliable, wheelchair accessible vehicle. Jordan has two amazing jobs and if all goes according to plan, I too will have a job in the not too distant future (Santa, feel free to drop one of those in my lap - somebody's gotta pay for this reno if you catch my drift?!) And most importantly - we are healthy (fingers and toes crossed and knocking on wood). We have absolutely everything we need.
Let us all stay strong, happy, and healthy. That's it, that's all. Think you can deliver? I've been on the nice list this year, I assure you (contrary to what my children may have told you).
Peace out Santa. And get ready to eat some of my chocolate bourbon fudge that'll be out waiting for you. If that doesn't sweeten the deal, I don't know what will.
ps - This Christmas letter wouldn't be complete if I didn't wish some good fortune towards my Canucks. What we're after has the same initials as you Santa. That's all I'm saying.
