2012 Annual Holiday Newsletter

It's that time again, the annual holiday newsletter for the Hall family. 2012 has been a challenging and eventful year for our family, but we are hanging in with all the changes.

Bryan continues his day job with Verizon, he joined a new department which he really loves. His new department has recently announced some major changes, which could mean a relocation - more to come on that in the future months. We of course, would love and prefer to stay in Nashville, but we are trying to stay open to all opportunities.

Laura found found herself unemployed as her whole department was dissolved with a major shift in company focus at Shared Health. Luckily she fairly quickly found a new position with H2U in Nashville and continues to support/train Electronic Health Records. Laura continues to have great check ups and in June became a 4 year breast cancer survivor!

Josh left Gibson for more stable work hours, and loves his job with Vetter Electric. He continues to do custom furniture as a side project. Josh is also doing some crazy training for his endurance race coming up in Vermont this June. Chassi continues to offer childcare in their home, as well as keep up with school projects, her own half marathons and other various projects.

Anna Belle, 9 yrs old, 3rd grade and Morgan, 8 yrs old, 2nd grade are thriving at work and play. Anna and Morgan are currently training for the Nashville Kids Triathlon in May. They got new bicycles for Christmas to prepare for their race.

Emri just turned 5 years old, and started pre-K this year. She is really enjoying school and enjoying being with her big sisters at Liberty Elementary neighborhood school. Emri loves ballet and pretty much any other activity. I don't think I have to tell you - this is one HIGH ENERGY household!

Jenni continues to love working as a nanny for the Hodges family. They welcomed Delta Faye to the household in October so she now has her hands full with two precious little girls. Jenni continues to love music, literature and travel. She spent her Thanksgiving holiday exploring Rio de Janerio and the island of Ilha Grande. (tough life)

Our hope is that 2012 has been kind to you and that you have made some wonderful memories with those you love!

With love from us to you,
Bryan, Laura and Jenni
Josh, Chassi, Anna Belle, Morgan and Emri
