Merry Christmas!

Dear Family & Friends,
I hope this year has found you well. It’s hard to believe that its this time of year already. 
Last year we left you with me working & D unemployed. With that being said, this year has been soo good to us.
I started taking classes in January, while D looked for work. In March, D was blessed with a job through a Temp Agency, working for CH2MHill doing drafting work. It was a 4 month contract that continues to be extended & and we rejoice in how the Lord is providing for us. His current contract is good through the end of January, and we continue to pray for extensions or something permanent. 
When D went back to work, I took a term off to figure out how family & school would work out. I also began a new journey working with Premier Designs Jewelry & we have been truly blessed to be apart of such an amazing company! Over the spring and summer I was able to stay at home with our little guy, and hold Jewelry Parties at night after D got home. It has helped bring in some much needed extra income, and I enjoy it so much. I get to hang out with awesome ladies, give away free jewelry, eat brownies & get paid for it! Being able to do this has also allowed me to return back to school this fall, and not worry about work. I have been able to take my classes and schedule my work around family & school. 
This summer I was also able to go on a short trip to nepal. It was only 2 week, but I enjoyed every moment of it. I was stretched in so many ways. Thank you for all your prayers and support. God’s peace for this trip & on this trip overwhelmed me.
Our Little man, d2 Turned 2 this year, and 3 is soon approaching. He has entered a stage where he likes to push his limits & sometimes it is hard not to laugh. He loves pretending & telling stories and is a very social boy. He brings such joy to our lives and we are trying to soak it all up. He loves all things cars, trucks, toy story & thomas. His newest thing is LEGOS...thought that didn’t start till they were 5. We are soo excited to have christmas this year, as he has understand presents and even christmas. 
We are looking forward to this coming year, with high HOPES. Knowing God is good.
Things we are hoping for & trusting in the Lord for are:
D getting a permanent Job
d2 becoming potty trained
& my Year Anniversary with Premier.
There is soo much to look forward to.
We hope you all take some time to remember the true meaning of christmas & praise our saviors birth.  
The Don’s
