It's that time again,
Another year gone by,
Time to catch you up on things,
At least I'm going to try!
Still here in Colorado,
and happy as can be,
Lots of outdoor things for us to do,
Hike, bike, swim and ski!
In March we said goodbye to Rob,
Who knew it could be so rough?
A year just me and our two sweet girls,
A year to make us all tough!
Miss Julian turned 3 in April,
She's growing up so fast!
Between gymnastics, soccer and dance,
The months seem to fly right past!
She is quite the little diva,
Loves her dolls and dress up too!
Such a wonderful big sister,
and so much like you know who :)
Now Ava Clare, she is a handful,
It's her way and no other!
I'm sure you all are thinking,
That sounds just like her mother!
She's quite the little talker,
So quick to tell you so!
Hard to believe she'll be 2 so soon,
Really where does the time go?
The girls sure miss their daddy,
His mid-tour visit in September went too fast!
Just glad we had two weeks with him,
The girls sure had a blast!
Now as for me, what did I do,
To make this year fly by?
My friends and I decided to run,
I figured why not try!
The Army 10 Miler in Washington, DC,
Yes I said 10 miles!
We trained so hard, through thick and thin,
And I finished with a smile!
So now the year is winding down,
We are excited about the Holiday season!
It's time to reflect on everything in life,
Remembering the true reason.
Julian and Ava are excited as well,
Of course Santa makes them smile!
They know "he's watching" to see if they are good,
Their wish list continues to grow by the mile!
This year will be quite different,
Wishing daddy was here,
But it won't be long until he's home,
Now that's a reason to cheer!
We send big hugs to everyone,
Our family far and near.
Wishing you a Very Merry Christmas,
And a safe and Happy New Year!
Julian and Ava Clare
