2011 was a fantastic year with many great new adventures and so many amazing blessings • • • God is so good to us!

Peggy Jo and  I are traveling more with my commercial and stock photography and our Genesis Pure business. My commercial photography work is increasing - two of my most recent shoots include Norman Love Confections and Fannie May Chocolates (artisan, valentines & easter). We will be traveling to both coasts and places in-between this year and have plans to travel to Europe. Our new business is allowing Peggy Jo to make a shift from f/t Real Estate and allowing us to work side-by-side once again doing things we love to do.

Everett is living in Seattle and working with The C4 group as an Americorp VISTA. We are proud of him as he has applied himself to this new assignment and has grown tremendously. He will complete this assignment in August and we are eagerly looking forward to the exciting things he will do with his extensive skill-set and numerous talents (A dad's bias clearly ...but the truth none-the-less). His dedication to Christ and the blessed life he leads make us so proud of him. Everett continues to rock climb and compete as time allows and doesn't give up on trying to get me/us to take up his sport. Also, he is in a relationship that we are watching closely with great anticipation. He is the greatest son anyone could ever have - we are so blessed!

Erin has remained in Springfield and continues to work for a sign company. She is also amazingly talented and continues to work on creative ideas that are very impressive to say the least... cool knitting items and visual arts projects. She amazes us with her blessed life and passionate heart and dedication to Christ. Erin does her share of rock climbing and she's very good at it. She makes sure Peggy Jo and I have our quality time with her each week over coffee or lunch.... She is the greatest daughter anyone could ever have - we are so blessed!

We are so excited about the year ahead and how the journey will develop. We look forward to all the relationships we will begin and the growth of the quality relationships we have maintained over the years including those we have started over the past year. Our dreams and goals will lead us to places where we can help others and be effective in positively impacting the world around us.

We trust you will also let your dreams and the goals you set lead you to do greater things in 2012!

all the best...
