Merry Christmas!!

It is hard to believe Christmas is here. What a wonderful time of year. We are so blessed to have a healthy, happy family to share this time with and celebrate our Savior. Since I didn't give "Funk family update" letter with my Christmas cards (I was lucky to evan get the cards out) I thought I would give a brief update here:

Brynlee is 7 years old and in first grade. She has made great improvement on her reading these past few months and we are very proud of her. She is still taking dance and started up piano lessons in September, which she is doing very well in (however, I will be greatful when we don't have to hear "Up on the House Top" played 20 times a day and we move on to a new favorite song). She loves to play with friends, draw and play school. Brynlee is a great big sister and helper to Mom and Dad.

Kaylee is 4 years old. She attends "mom's" preschool -all 3 classes (she has no excusses not to be ready for Kindergarten) and does very well. She also enjoys her dance class. She loves to play with friends and her brother & sister, she love to do puzzles and play computer. Kaylee adores our new cat Krystal and it doesn't bother her that I find a new scratch mark on her daily (the cat does put up with a lot).

Sean is 2 (will be 3 in February) and is growing so fast. It is fun to have a boy! He loves animals and he loves pretending to be them. He is still very much a mommy boy, which has it good and bad points. He attends the 3 year old preschool class and enjoys playing with the other boys.

Patrick and Amy are doing well and stay busy keeping up with these 3. Patrick just started a new position (still with the State of Utah) up at the Capital and is enjoying it. Patrick also enjoyed having season tickets to BYU football and he is the Sunday School President in our ward. Amy is teaching 3 preschool classes (total of 25 students and 2 kids) in our home and really enjoys it and hope to continue it. She also has continued to be the Administrative Assistant for a non profit state early childhood organization and is Secretary in the Primary.

We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!

Love the Funks

Thanks to Jen for taking our family pictures!

Amy's Preschool Room

Amy has been using her preschool room for a couple of months now, but we finally finished the closet area, so we thought we would post some pics here.

ColdPlay concert

Sorry, its been a while since we updated this thing. We have lots of stuff to post, so we'll get to that as soon as possible. Meanwhile, Amy and I went to the Coldplay concert last night. It was really fun and we had a great time. They were absolutely amazing. Here are some photos. I took these from a distance from my iPhone, so the quality isn't that spectacular.

Rio Tinto Stadium

Amy and I went to the first Real Salt Lake game at Rio Tinto Stadium last night. A funny thing happened. When they were just about to start and doing the pregame ceremonies, the sprinklers came on! It was pretty funny. We had a great time though.

Happy 4th Birthday Kaylee!!

Our beautiful Kaylee is 4 today!! I know everyone says the years go by so fast but it is so true. In fact we moved into our home 2 weeks before I had Kaylee and I can't believe it has been 4 years already. Kaylee was a big 9lb 14oz at birth and was known for her cute chubby cheeks. She is such a blessing to our family. She loves to sing, dance, read stories, play "my little ponies", and play (torcher at times)with our new kitten, Crystal. I love to be with Kaylee first thing in the morning when she wakes up and always has a smile on her face and a hug for Mom. We love you Kaylee! Happy Birthday!

$2 Tuesdays at Thanksgiving Point

The kids and I went to Thanksgiving Point on Tuesday evening with my parents and had a great time. In August you can get into the farm, gardens and the dinosaur museum for $2 each which is a great deal! We went to the farm, which the kids loved. Sean loves animals especially horses, but don't try to put him on one. We also went to the gardens at the perfect time of night. We may be going back before the month is over. Thanks Mom and Dad for going with us!

Brynlee's 1st Day of School

Brynlee started 1st grade on Monday and is in Mrs. Barnes class with many of her friends. The first day of school she let Mom take her and watch her line up with her new class. It is hard to believe we have a 1st grader who is now gone to school all day long. Her faviorite part of school is that now she gets to eat lunch there and has 3 recesses. I hope she has a great year! Here are a couple of pictures of Brynlee on her first day of 1st grade.

Sean and a friend

Here is a cute video of Sean playing with the son of some of our friends, the Serr's. Nash is just 3, but he hopped up on the lovesac and started reading a book to Sean. The quality isnt the best because I took it with my cell phone camera.

Pretty cool video

I thought this was a pretty cool video. Whether you like Glenn Beck or not, its pretty cool the respect that President Hickley garners.
