2016 Family Newsletter

We are terrible at updating our blog, but, since our Christmas cards this year invite recipients to check our blog for a family newsletter, we figured we'd actually do one this year.

2016 has flown by and has been a fun and busy year.  Here's what each of us has been up to:

Reagan is almost 2.  She is sassy, smart, and tons of fun.  She likes to try to keep up with her brothers - usually to boss them around a little.   She also loves her teachers and friends and school.  She is getting very vocal; it seems like she says a new word or phrase every day.  We treasure the joy she brings to our family every day.  

Mason turned 5 in August.  He is gregarious and funny.  He approaches life with an exuberance that should be the envy of everyone.  He loves his pre-school, and his peers and teachers love him.  He likes to ride his bike and play outside.  He is a picky eater, but loves french fries, yoghurt, and apple sauce - and, of course, cookies, skittles, and smarties.  He enjoys playing video games and watching cartoons with his older brother.  

Lincoln will be 8 at the end of January.  He is looking forward to being baptized.  He is a wonderful and patient older brother, who looks out for his little brother and sister and loves being around his family and friends.  He is doing well in second grade, LOVES math, is an excellent speller, and has become almost as voracious a reader as his mother.  He is a connoisseur of all things Super Mario Bros and can talk your ear off about it.  

Kelli continues to amaze all around her at every turn.  She is equal parts awesome wife, super mom, and excellent engineer.  She also currently works with the Young Women at church.  When she's not excelling in one of these areas she's busy reading one of the 215 books she's read so far this year... and it's not over yet.

Tyler remains busy between keeping up with the amazing crew above, being actively engaged at work, and serving as a counselor in the bishopric.  

We hope that all of you are doing well, that you had a wonderful Christmas and wish you the happiest of new years.

Much love, 
The Williams Family
