From the Bird’s, to our Family and Friends
This years Christmas card is doubling as our baby announcement!!!!!
This year I turned the keyboard over to Dallin and gave him the honors of writing our card.
Dallin + Shannon Bird Family
Dallin + Shannon have now been living in their new home in Alpine since last December and really enjoy the beauty and community feel that Alpine offers. Their children love playing with Neighbors and friends nearby and the beautiful stream that runs behind their home.
Dallin has been at his new job for a little over 2 years and enjoys his work there. Along with several other projects, he is also still active with his Family’s International division. His biggest joy is playing with his 3 children and spending time with Shannon and traveling as a family.
He is actively working on building a new suspension bridge over the creek to connect his yard to their cousins home and hopes the local authorities don’t find out!
Shannon – 5.5 months pregnant – is busy being a mom, entrepreneur and wife. She enjoys her time with Hudson, Holland + Briton. This year she traveled to the Dominican Republic with her Blog Bird A La Mode, and brought the family along for a vacation. She enjoys working on her blog, traveling, raising the children and preparing for the New Baby #4 on the way!
Hudson – 5 – is having a great year playing on 2 soccer teams and being one of the leading scorers. He excels in school and loves to read, learn, draw and build with his hands. His new favorite thing to do is draw pictures for his family and friends and is always thinking of who else might need one of his masterpieces. Hudson loves gymnastics and is looking forward to his upcoming meet at the Candy Cane Classic. Hudson has a big personality and likes to be on the go and keep things entertaining around the house. He loves his cousins’ and keeps asking to get a motorcycle garage like the one at Babba’s house.
Holland- 3 she might only be 3 and barely on the height and weight charts, but she packs a big punch. She is all princess and lipstick while still loving to play with the boys. Watch out, Miss Holland doesn’t let anyone get the best of her. But when she wants, she can be the cutest little girl! She is in gymnastics and takes dance classes. She is all things ballet lately and loves her classes, and watching herself in the mirror. She also loves school and will surprise you with her quick wit and understanding of the world around her. She has the biggest smile and cutest personality. We love Holland and her dynamic to our family. She loves her cousins’ and can’t wait to go back to Babba’s house.
Briton 17 months – This one makes up for the other 2! Nice, fun, loves to snuggle and is a momma’s boy. He is always quick to giggle and smile, I couldn’t have designed a more perfect baby with his sweet personality, rosy cheeks and infectious smile. He loves to play and believes he can keep up with whatever the big kids are doing. If he gets left behind he makes Shannon or Dallin put him right back in the middle of the action. Briton loves to have books read to him, chases every animal that gets with in 100 feet of him and generally is just a joy to have around. Hudson protects Briton and they are 2 close pals.
Baby – Due late April, Shannon is planning on this one being like her other 3 children who all came 3-4 weeks early making sure dad is in town the entire month of April 🙂 I keep telling her baby is coming late and to plan on May, I guess we’ll just have to see. No gender yet, but Holland is praying for a sister to tag team her brothers with. Also she needs another princess in the house as Dad is too big for the princess tent and the “tea time” table.
We wish everyone the Merriest of Christmas & Holiday Season and the brightest of New Years!
