Dear Friends and Family,

As another year comes to a close, we pause to reflect on our experiences and blessings. The Lindsey family had a wonderful year full of new places and firsts. We also would like to wish you and yours a peaceful Christmas and a prosperous New Year.

Dylan Slater is our baby boy and is growing like a weed. He can reach the light switches now and is fixated on pressing them at every opportunity. His vocabulary expands daily and he loves to say and do everything his big sister does. He’s a blue-eyed charmer that has his mother wrapped around his little finger. Passers by love to comment on how cute he is and we’re inclined to agree.

Kamryn turned five this fall and is having a blast at her new Pre-Kindergarten school. When she came home and recited the Pledge of Allegiance, daddy knew it was worth every penny. Kamryn is my carbon copy of Samantha. I always thought Sammy was one of kind, but it seems we’ve made another just like her. Our Kami Cakes is thoughtful and friendly to everyone, but extremely independent and quick. She has no fear of anything or anyone (Large reptiles included), and she has always known just what she wants and how to negotiate to get it.

Samantha continues to do what she does best: she is a mommy, companion, and a fitness machine. She kicks my rear in the gym and has a good time watching me try to keep up. Sam used her skills to guide a visually impaired athlete through one of the relay legs of the California International Marathon.

Sam and I are fortunate enough to have wonderful parents that will watch our kids for us as we jet set around the world. This year, Sammy took me on a tour of South Africa, where I fell in love with her family, the landscapes, and the waves of Jeffrey’s bay. I dragged Sam back across the Atlantic to Italy, where we fell in love all over again in the most romantic place in the world. We loved Florence and Cinque Terre, but especially Capri.

I am in my tenth year as an Ocularist in Sacramento and have opened a new office in Las Vegas. My Staff has changed, but business is the same. While I try to squeeze time for my plethora of hobbies, athletic and artistic endeavors, the best time spent is with my wonderful wife and kids.

We are so grateful for our friends and family and feel so much love for you. We are especially grateful for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the peace it brings to our lives. May the Lord bless you this season and my you find peace and true joy throughout 2012 and beyond.


Eric, Samantha, Kamryn, and Dylan

Last night...

Eric came home from work with a chocolate sunflower for Kamryn, because it was her first (last) day of Pre- K school.
and he came home with these for me, because he said "I couldn't stop thinking about you today" I know, it took my breath away.
Then we took the kids to the park and played with them.
Disclaimer: I do not give my consent to Eric riding with the kids on his shoulder while he rides his longboard...
and Eric took the training wheels off Kamryn's bike yesterday to try to introduce her to riding her bike. Turns out, we underestimated this little one because she was pretty much fearless...
until she crashed right into that pole (can you tell her bike heading straight for it).
Good thing she had her helmet on or I'm pretty sure she would have had a concussion at best!!!
After the park, Kamryn ran ALL the way home from the park with me.
It's probably 2 miles!!!
She's ready for her first triathlon in a few weeks.

Last night was pretty much my perfect night.
I love my family!!

playing catch up

blogging seems to be low on my "to do list" in the summer, but now that school has started I'm going to have more time to update, so don't give up on me. The Lindseys have been as busy as ever enjoying the summer.

Here are some highlights.
we went to the Lake with our family

The only thing girly about this girl is that she LOVES the color pink.

Kamryn had her first dance recital
Big night for our little star.
The biggest highlight of our summer was Phillip Danz and Associates, changing business hours from Monday through Thursday meaning ERIC has FRIDAYS OFF.
So we get to do super fun things like go to SUNSPLASH
love this picture


Finally... my beautiful girlie started school TODAY.
And I know this is way cheesy but I couldn't be more proud...
Watch out Sheldon Acres :)
I can't wait to post pictures of our INCREDIBLE trip to Italy.

...this warm weather with our cute kids

I love how busy my family is in the Summer. We've already been to Santa Cruz and Vegas and Summer has just barely begun. My kids live outside everyday and can't get enough of it.
Our big Summer trip is coming up in 3 days.
Andiamo subito alla bella Italia
Here we go to Beautiful Italy

This MAN turned 33 this YEAR.
What better way to celebrate this MONUMENTAL occasion than to throw him a SURPRISE party...
LUAU Style
I totally pulled off the surprise, he had NO idea!

The night featured ENTERTAINMENT
...Crazy tricks
...beautiful dancers
...doing some exotic island dancing even included a lesson for the guys to learn THE HAKA

I sent my bro-in-law on a SPECIAL ASSIGNMENT to find Eric the perfect SURPRISE road bike.
We pulled that off too, He was AMAZED. (Thanks Rob)
What's a luau without doing the LIMBO
The winner...

The DJ played awesome music

Cutest couple...

My beautiful friend Tara, who made these cupcakes.

Eric and I taking his new ride for a spin.
We had a FABULOUS night, dancing and enjoying everyone's company.
I had so many friends help out with this party, I would never have been able to pull off this surprise without their help; especially Rob, the Rogers, Tara, the Browns, and everyone invited for keeping their mouths SHUT :)
I need to start thinking of ideas for the next party to be able to top this one.
