Merry Christmas Card

We want to wish all of our friends, family, and loved ones a Merry Christmas.

Here are the top ten things that happened to the Killpacks in 2012.

10. McKay's two year break from school came to an end, when he decided it was time to further his schooling.  He got accepted into the University of Utah's and Electrical Engineering Master's program.  He took Stochastic Processes.  Whatever that means.  He passed and we're both very happy!

9. We finally finished remodeling our kitchen.  We painted our cabinets, installed a tiled backsplash, and new countertops and sink.  Next time we do a kitchen remodel, I will pay someone to do it.  We did a lot of painting, re-painting, fixed drywall, and put in new flooring in our upstairs bathroom.

8. Our roommate Kevin and his girlfriend Shelley got married!  We will miss being his foster parents, but are so happy for this next stage of his life.

7. We went on a couple vacations this year: Oregon Coast, California, and Capitol Reef National Park.

6. Courtney quit her job as the marketing specialist at Tanner Clinic.  She decided staying home and raising Amelia was more important.  Two weeks after signing her resignation papers she was offered a social media/marketing consulting job for the blog Six Sisters' Stuff.  Now she works part time from home and is loving working in the blogosphere.

5. McKay switched jobs at his work.  McKay was one of the lead test engineers at L3 Communications and now is an automated test engineer developer.  He is enjoying his new job. What makes daddy happy makes mommy happy.

4. McKay is currently a Elder's Quorom teacher and Courtney is an advisor in the Mia Maids.

3. Winston's favorite thing to do is play with his Kong frisbee, play catch at the nearby park, cuddle in bed with mommy and daddy, and lick Amelia, gross!

2.  and 1. defienetly belong to our sweet and beautiful Amelia.  She was born on August 16th and has brought so much immeasurable joy to our lives.  We can't imagine our lives without her.  She is just like her daddy; she looks like she is always thinking and observing.  She is a big talker, she got that from her mommy.  She looks like a lot like her daddy, but has her mommy's eyes and nose.  She's a good mix between the two of us.
