Well, here we are, the Hirsch 5.
This is the photo we put on our Christmas cards. If you didn’t get a Christmas card from us, don’t fret. We still love you immensely but the postage on 500 Christmas cards was just a little bit out of our budget, so you get this instead. A nice, free Christmas letter posted on a website. Klassy, with a K.
I’ll be breif.
Hillary – she’s 5, started full day pre-kindergarten at Grace Lutheran School in August, and she’s into princesses and trying to be a grown up, complete with a giant purse full of pens & paper and daddy’s old cell phone. She took her first swimming lessons this year and smiled the whole time, even under water.
Maris – she’s 2, she’s just now starting to talk, she’s full of curiousity (and I do mean full) and she exudes sassiness in everything she does – it’s the curly hair. She’s into legos and babies and lots of other typical toddler stuff, but her greatest joys in life are loving on her little brother and antagonizing her older sister. She’s also a Kindle-aholic.
Bryce – our newest surprise addition is 4 months old and the happiest baby we know. He eats a lot and wiggles a lot and smiles a lot, and he’s got dimples, so that’s prettymuch awesome. He’s fitting in pretty well around here.
Moby & I – well, nothing changes. He just had his 19 year anniversary at Hornbacher’s and I’m going into, I think, 9 years at Radio Fargo Moorhead. We’re still in survival mode since Bryce came along, but we’re limping along just fine. Things are getting done, they just take a lot longer. As the saying goes, “The days are long, but the years are short.”
That prettymuch sums it up.
We hope you have a great Christmas and a new year filled with awesome surprises, miracles and/or just a whole bunch of status quo. If you find yourself forgetting that Jesus is the reason for the season, send one of your kids to a parochial school. There’s nothing like seeing the true meaning of Christmas through the eyes of a child.
From our family to yours, love & best wishes
