Merry Christmas 2017

Season’s Greetings from the Baxters! This year William (5 ½) started kindergarten, and I learned how to correctly spell kindergarten. He is in a dual-immersion program (English/Spanish) and seems to be enjoying it. It won’t be long before he knows more Spanish than all of us (he already knows more than Jason).  Academically he’s doing great and socially/emotionally he’s your… Read more →

Merry Christmas 2016!

Merry Christmas to All and to All a Good Night!—This sentiment is especially aimed at those with young children, for whom “good nights” are hard to come by. This morning after William’s cold woke him up extra early I decided there’s no time like the present to get our Christmas letter written. 2016 has been a wonderful year for our… Read more →

White Christmas

Merry Christmas! We had a wonderful white Christmas in Utah this year with some existing snow, and another 5-6″ that fell Christmas Eve/Morning.

Jason and I didn’t exchange gifts this year,… Read more →

Christmas Letter from the Baxters…2011

Greetings!                                                                                                   December 2011 This year the Baxter family said goodbye to government hiking contracts and a well-used vehicle. We also had some great family visits and prepared to welcome a new arrival to our family in the coming year.

We Wish You a Merry Christmas!

After learning from the Christmas debacle of 2009, this year was about simplicity. These were the note cards I included with our Christmas letter this year. The green and red note cards were just flat cards that I ordered pre-cut. The tree was cut out using my cricut, and the saying was just your run of the mill ink-jet printer… Read more →
