The Life of Bon: Merry Christmas 2013!

Merry Christmas 2013!

I looked at my calendar today and what did I see?
It's December 22 already?  Ah, gee!
I had great big plans to get Christmas cards in the mail,
Now they'll never make it on time- it's a holiday fail!
I needed an alternate plan, something easy and quick,
I know it's lame, but a blog Christmas card will have to do the trick.

2013 has been a full year in our little family clan,
Lots of changes and decisions for this wife and her man.
When the year started we had plans to move to Hollywood,
But after lots of thought and prayer we decided Utah was just as good.

Greg got his Bachelor's degree in April- he's now a college grad!
He refused to walk at his ceremony, but a nice, fancy dinner wasn't too bad.
He now spends his days working with adults with special needs,
And at night you will find him on the Hale Center Stage- playing the lead!

This summer we ventured to Hawaii with Greg and his family,
Got scammed $1200 bucks in the process- quite the "vacation fee"!
It hurt at the time, but we chalk it up to a "good learning experience",
And if nothing else it helped us grow up and learn a bit of common sense!

I moved high schools this year- left Copper Hills in the dust,
Switched to a school closer to home and with a football team you can trust!
I miss Copper Hills and the people there- there's no doubt about it,
But the change and growth is good for me- this new school is a great fit.
I teach juniors and seniors, and yikes, they even gave me a class of AP-
I'm terrified to teach it, but pray that the seventeen year olds don't see.

In August to my mom's basement we had to say goodbye,
We loved being so close to family, but found a new place in Lehi.
With just the two of us alone it suddenly started to feel a bit lonely,
So in October we got ourselves a dog, I insist I must have been crazy.

This fall we got called to teach primary, and that has been one of our greatest joys,
It means we spend Sunday afternoons with three rowdy, ten year old boys.
They are a hyper and active bunch and they keep us on our toes,
But we've fallen madly in love with the kids, how it happened nobody knows.

The year was filled with its ups and downs, small trials and blessings great,
We know that no matter the difficulties, God blesses us at a much faster rate.
We make so many mistakes- we are humans who are deeply flawed,
And so find ourselves constantly giving thanks for the gift of the Son of God.
During this Christmastime we are reminded of so many miracles great and small,
As we remember the birth of baby Jesus-  His life and sacrifice is the greatest gift of all.

Merry Christmas from Greg and Bonnie
