Another year has come and gone and the Jacobs family is excited to see what year 2010 has to offer. We have put together a little update on our crazy life!
Zach hit the big milestone of 30 this year and was excited to celebrate it with a surprise trip to Seattle. He has seen some changes with his work, going from a direct employee of Johnson & Johnson to being independently contracted for them. It has been a good change and things look promising for 2010. This summer was busy with triathlons and road bike races. Zach is still playing sports regularly, but enjoys playing with the girls any chance he can.
Erika is staying busy chasing the girls around. No longer driving a Honda Accord, she is now a Minivan Mom (and loving it)! Erika has recently taken on a new roll at church, the Beehive advisor, and is a little nervous considering the fact that she’s had 4 callings in the past year and they’ve all been in the Primary. Erika took on a new challenge of running and has stayed busy participating in 2 half marathons and the Wasatch Back Ragnar Relay. Her favorite things are hugs and kisses from the girls!
Avery is 4 and is still a ball of fire! She stays busy going to dance and preschool. She is learning a ton, and is so smart, but her favorite part about preschool is probably lunch. She finished her first year of soccer and had a great time, “Go Blue Babes!” She loves playing with friends and is a social butterfly. She is a total girly girl. She loves to change her clothes 4-5 times a day, dance and sing, and paint finger and toe nails- especially her dads! She had fun learning to water ski at Bear Lake and is looking forward to her 3rd year of snow skiing. She also has the cutest freckles!
Hayden is 2 and has the prettiest brown eyes ever. Her best friend is her sister Avery and wants to do everything she does (Avery is an awesome big sister!). She getting bigger and bigger every day and is always exploring. She is starting to really talk up a storm and Zach is dreading the phone bill when both girls are teenagers. She loves animals, especially cows, and wants to go see the ones by our house daily. Her favorite thing to say is “oh man!” That girl always keeps us laughing!
During this holiday season, we are thankful for family, friends and especially the birth of our Savior. We are grateful for this time of year and the chance we have to reflect upon our many blessings. We hope that you have a wonderful holiday season!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
