Our cards are out and in the mail....and here is the interesting fact filled letter that should have been mailed. My goal was to send the world's shortest christmas letter this year so here goes:
Reid: Husband, Father, Soon-to-be Grandfather Stake President Potato Farmer Sports Coach and Enthusiast
Lori: Wife, Mother, Soon-to-be Grandmother Coach (2 National Championships last year) Ward Chorister Studio Director and Costume Coordinater, Bedazzler
Jordan: Available Potato Farmer Concrete Cutter Returning Student (Thank Heavens...) Did I mention he's AVAILABLE?

Mackenzie: Licensed Driver Co- Captain of Drill Team Competitive Dancer Running Start Student Hilarious
Easton: BRACELESS Football and Basketball Starter (grown about 6" this year) Avid Snowboarder Sensitive (and SHY)
We are all happy and healthy and busy. There's a lot less people in the house, but somehow we seem just as busy, and I know we are just as blessed. WE hope for many more years of togetherness and friendship and hope you'll all come and see us this year.
Greetings from Elder Baker in Tanna Vanuatu! Christmas Poem(written by Quinn)

I know, I know, I know Do you really know and does it show? I know this church is true But I want to know if you know it too? I like Malekula and Tanna exactly the same The gospel is true and this work isn’t a game. Missionary work is for All of us And if we don’t do it, in who do we trust? I want all of you to share the gospel with One friend And I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
The Christmas season is a time to share the ‘glad tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.’ (Luke 2:10) I love you all and I want all to know I know Christ lives!
You cannot do a Google search to gain a testimony. You can't text message faith. You gain a life-changing testimony today the same way it has always been done. It comes through desire, study, prayer, obedience and service.
I am wife of one and mother of five. I consider myself loyal, friendly, busy and hopeful. I love my husband, my children, my friends and my girls....I dream of more time to be a better wife, a better mother, a better neighbor and friend.
