Christmas Card

For the Blog Book...here is our Christmas Card and Frank's Christmas letter from this year.

Dear Family and Friends, 
Merry Christmas to each of you from this tribe of the Morgan family. We feel extremely blessed for all that 2012 allowed us to experience, and the opportunities it provided to us. We were fortunate enough to celebrate some big milestones, and hope that you all were able to do the same. Thank you so much for your friendship, love, and support. We sincerely hope that you take time this holiday season to give thanks for all of your blessings, and that 2013 provides you with wonderful health and all the happiness you deserve.
The biggest news of the year was Lacey getting the “All Clear” from her doctors. We are unbelievably grateful that her treatments worked and that she has started to feel better. Lacey and I also celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary this year. Given those two events, we decided to celebrate our anniversary in June by going on a bucket list trip. We decided to travel to the amazing island of Bora Bora, and it was absolutely perfect for celebrating those two major life events together. This was definitely the trip of a lifetime, and we appreciate so much being able to go. We also were fortunate enough to move to our new “forever home” in the Spring. We absolutely love our new house and neighborhood and spent some time renovating it from top to bottom. Other than that, we spent the rest of the year as we usually do; attending baseball games, cheerleading practices, and dance recitals. We honestly love every second of watching these fantastic kids grow and learn.
Gavin turned 9 this year and still loves baseball. Gavin remains extremely laid back and loving, until he steps on the field. This was his first year playing Kid Pitch, and he really enjoyed it and excelled as a pitcher. Gavin still really enjoys school and is doing very well in the classroom. Gavin continues to be an excellent big brother to his two sisters and we could not be more proud of our little man and the adult size heart he has. 
Ellie turned 7 this year and has really come into her own. Ellie is enjoying first grade and really likes her teacher. She still loves cheer and actually moved up to a back flip class this year. Even though it scares mom and dad to watch her do these advanced skills, we are very proud of what she has been able to accomplish. Ellie has a very warm and nurturing personality, and has definitely blossomed in to our little lady. We are extremely thankful for Ellie and all she brings to our family. 
Hadley is now 4, but going on 13! She remains the spark plug of our family, and brings a lot of smiles to our faces. Hadley is in her last year of preschool, and will join Gavin and Ellie in elementary school next year. She enjoys weekly dance class and cheer as well. Hadley is a bundle of fun whose personality is much larger than her little body. We are very grateful for all of the smiles and love she adds to our lives. 
Thank you all for being a part of our lives and all that you do. We hope that 2013 is a fantastic year for you and your family. 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

The Morgan Family
