She asked us to write an over-the-top (i.e. exaggerated truth/or straight out lies) family Christmas Letter... and well considering I haven't even written a real one yet, why not!
Dear Family and Friends-
This has been a wonderful and very busy year. For those of you who may not be keeping up with us, though I don't know how you couldn't be as we are the most fun/entertaining/and silly family around, we moved to California. We moved to a ridiculously huge house that has so much room for all of my wonderful crafts I am always making. Besides room for crafts there is room to take pictures. Did I tell you I am a photographer now? Yes, world renowned photographer. I have people constantly begging me to take their pictures. I have been very selective though and just done a few jobs for my favorite people as I need to spend some time with my kids... have to maintain my Best Mom of the Year Award you know.
Lucas continues to amaze us with all he is learning and the things he builds. He already has two patents pending for his amazing creations. Eric plans on retiring soon as we are going to live off of all the money that his inventions bring in.
And Alex not only did she totally potty train herself this last year, but she is a model. I mean with her red hair and perfect face it is no surprise that she has offers for jobs coming all of the time.
All of my children's wonderful talents obviously take up a lot of my time so I have done the one thing that make the most sense; I have hired a house keeper. I have to maintain my spotless home at all times, part of my Mom the Year thing you know.
And Eric, well he is excelling at his job with several promotions and raises throughout the year; they really will miss him when he retires. He has been running in the morning and consistently has a 4 minute mile! If he wasn't so busy being the best father and husband he would definitely consider trying out for the next Olympics.
So life is good and wonderful and hopefully you are all having a wonderful Christmas too!
Sincerely (or not so sincerely),
Eric, Emily, Lucas and Alex
