Christmas Letter 2011
And coming in just under the wire,
My 2011 Christmas Letter!
Here’s a summary of what didn’t happen this year
*Didn’t get hit by a car all those days
he rode his bike in the morning with his IPod blaring and no helmet.
I’m chalking that up to Constant, Relentless Prayer on my part
*Didn’t get a new job.
On the flip side, this means he wasn’t laid off or fired either!
Again, refer to that Relentless begging not to become a single parent
of two teenagers and a pre-hormonal girl child.
*Didn’t get to spend a lot of evening time with his wife
Because she stays up til three and he conks out at ten.
*Didn’t get her book finished
but set up a new website (http://www.lafreeland.com/)
where you can read the first chapters of both of the books she’s working on.
*Didn’t stay unpublished
because she sold her first real devotional (for actual money) this year!
*Didn’t watch a lot of TV because
she’s editing for Christian Pulse and blogging for Crosswalk.
*Didn’t stay short.
He’s grown to six feet tall!
*Didn’t get a ticket as a teenage driver. Yet.
Although he did get pulled over after some nice lady
called OnStar and reported him “texting while driving.”
His “phone” was actually an IPod.
And the “texting” was him changing songs at a red light.
*Didn’t get to keep his job playing with rambunctious small people at Pump it Up Junior.
They closed their doors and gave away the key.
Luckily, Kyle had two jobs!
He still teaches swimming lessons to boisterous little kids!
*Didn’t get a pet chinchilla or a mini-fridge for his room.
He did bury Chad the guinea pig in the pet cemetery that has become our backyard.
*Didn’t stay in Texas
We went to Wisconsin twice and Florida once.
*Didn’t keep playing tennis.
He’s taken up rock climbing instead.
*Didn’t get to do Girl Scouts this year because
she was too busy practicing piano, playing basketball,
rock climbing at the rec center,
taking swimming lessons, and singing in the church choir.
*Also didn’t get a pet chinchilla
but did bury Jeffrey the hamster in earlier mentioned pet cemetery.
*Didn’t get to have enough sleepovers this year
Because her mother is mean!
