Merry Christmas to All!

Dang! I'm out of order but wanted to post my Christmas card before Christmas. Just made it! Here's what's going on with our family that I sent out with our Christmas card...this is mostly for journal purposes. :)

2012 Christmas Update

The Hancocks haven’t had much to report this year…which was kind of nice, actually! The only trip they went on was down to Zion’s (again!) for the Hancock family reunion. (Easton is REALLY awful in the car.) They stayed in a big house with a pool with plenty of photo-ops all around. Shawn, Missy, & Easton hiked The Narrows which was especially beautiful while the girls hiked with their aunts and cousins. They went to their first rodeo as a family and Shawn’s first rodeo ever! It was pretty fun but I think they enjoy the city-life more.

SHAWN is busy with his position as Financial Aid Manager over Athletics at the University of Utah. He is also helping his bro-in-law start an online personal payment and social fundraising business called Tipping Circle. You should check it out (! He still has been active in church softball and football. Once again taking region in softball.  Other than that, there is not much else to report. He just loves spending time with his family.
MISSY is still in the Primary and now is Brinley’s teacher, which is a delight! Brinley likes to answer every question so it makes her look good! Photography is still very much a part of her life and definitely keeps her busy. She also got a new baby… a upgraded Canon camera, that is. She has been taking workshops to grow her business into using studio lighting next year. Missy also helps out in Cambree’s classroom every week. She likes to see how Cambree behaves. J
BRINLEY is now 9 and in 4th grade! She still loves soccer and has become a pretty good goalie. She is in Up With Kids all year where they learn how to sing, dance, and act. They will perform a play at the end of the school year. Singing is definitely one of Brinley’s loves and she has a really good voice. Brinley continues to love playing the piano and taking lessons.
CAMBREE recently turned 7 and is in 1st grade. She is flourishing in school and doing quite well. She is becoming such a good reader and her teacher’s only complaint is that she gets distracted and talks…STILL! She is playing soccer again and did score 1 goal this season. Although, her real love is dance. She also loves playing with friends.
SADIE is such a cheerful 3 year old! Her family loves her cute words and her happy disposition. Her speech still isn’t where it should be but she is working on it. She started taking dance lessons this year and LOVES it! She wishes she could have dance class every day of the week. She also has playgroup with a bunch of little girls her age. Sadie didn’t start preschool yet but she likes routines and doing things like her older sisters.
EASTON is 14 months old and toddling around now! He had a little bit of a rough year with many ear infections, which resulted in getting tubes in his ears at 6 months old. Shawn has high hopes for his only boy and likes to show off Easton’s superman pose (he can be held by his thighs and remain completely horizontal). He’s got strong abs! Easton definitely demands the most attention and his sisters freely give it to him. His scream can break glass (or it least it seams like it;). He is at a fun age right now and the family loves it!

We love you all and hope you are all well. May you have a beautiful Christmas Season as we celebrate the birth of our Savior. Have a wonderful year!
