We hope your year has been a happy one. We have enjoyed starting the journey called life as we have settled here in Texas. This has been a busy year as both Kevin and Laurel graduated from BYU in April and moved to Houston, Texas.

KEVIN has kept busy working for the accounting firm Ernst & Young and has enjoyed the different work opportunities. He was recently called as the assistant clerk over finances in the ward. He loves to play with Claire and is constantly trying to keep up with Laurel’s long list of honey-dos.

LAUREL has been busy painting walls, cabinets, wall trim, picture frames, and anything she can get her hands on while taking care of an active 2 year old. It’s been great making new friends in the ward and she enjoys serving as the new Relief Society Meeting (Enrichment) Leader.

CLAIRE loves taking care of her baby dolls, singing songs, drawing, painting her nails, and prancing around the house in mom’s high heels. She is learning so much so fast and we love every minute of it.

We have felt so blessed this past year and are grateful for this season when we can reflect on our Savior and the reason for the season. We love you and hope you have a great holiday and new year!

love, the Sommerfeldt family
