Two Thousand and Nine has come and gone
and what a year it has been;
Much has happened in our little family…
now where should we begin?

The year began slowly; we suffered a great loss,
Kory’s father, Zed, passed away.
The very next month, we welcomed a daughter,
a beautiful girl, Preslie Deziree.

What a joy she has been and a blessing in our lives;
we can’t imagine our family without her.
She has been crawling for months and is now trying to walk;
she has to keep up with her brother.

Mr. Parker turned three in September this year,
and of all sports and superheroes he is fond.
If you are around him at all you’ll hear,
“To infinity and beyond!”

Summer was fun and full of family adventures;
we finally bought a trailer of our own.
East Canyon, Lava, St. Anthony, The Uintahs…,
“Dad, aren’t you ready for a weekend at home?”

The fall came and went with much work to be done;
Kory tirelessly worked on our yard.
Digging for sprinklers, curbing and planting seed—
yes, green grass can be seen from afar.

There is always a project; something needs to be fixed;
most nights you will find Kory at the shop.
He does seem to find time to fit in a few rounds of golf,
but he never seems to stop.

Kristie stays busy working, taking care of the kids,
and trying to keep her poise.
Fridays off are a blessing with one more day to be had,
with the two kids she calls her joys.

Our family looks forward to the New Year,
and we wish you the very best.
May love, good health, and happiness be yours,
and may you all be blessed.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Dancing Girl

Preslie is almost 9 months old. I can't believe it! She has been crawling since she was 6 months old and is trying so hard to walk. Anyway, she is a constant mover and a shaker. She doesn't sit still for long but I did manage to get her to sit and dance for a minute. She must get her dance moves from her dad!!!
