Well it has been an amazing year with so many changes in our lives. 2010 will go down in our memories as having the greatest disappointments and the most exciting revelations. As many of you know, we lost our first born Kodiak in April. It is hard to think of a moment when he is not on our minds. For myself (Adam) I still have times when I think he is there next to me in the car or sleeping at the foot of the bed. We can hear his sigh or arthritic shake as he gets up to move in the middle of the night. We truly miss our little boy and will forever until we see him once again in heaven.
As for the present, we have had a very busy year with many exciting changes and challenges. We continue to enjoy all of our friends in the Li'l Smokey family and had such a great time at the reunion. We have such a great extended family and we love hearing from you all, even if we are a little on the slow side with returning messages. Please know that we are so appreciative of all the wonderful cards and notes that you send, it makes us feel loved.
And for the future, we have great things to look forward to as well. Celeste and I are expecting TWINS this June! We were a little shocked to find out that we would be having two children when we had been waiting so long just to have one. We have just finished the first trimester and things are looking great so far. We will let you know how things progress.
We hope that you and your families are having a wonderful time this holiday season. To our Christian brothers and sisters we wish you a Merry Christmas. For the rest of you all, have a joyous holiday season and a wonderful New Year.
-Adam and Celeste
