Our 9 year old 4th grader at High Plains Elementary. He is now a Webelos in Cub Scouts and has joined Destination Imagination this fall. Tobey played on his first baseball team this summer, and ran in 4 5K's and a 10K over the summer and early Fall months. He has his own YouTube channel to show off some of his animation creations.

Ashley and Nick

Ashley continues to work at Charles Schwab while Nick is at the Greenwood Village police department. They became new pet owners in March when they adopted Aspen, Truffle's furry sister, and we watched each other's beloved dog several times in 2012. They celebrated their first anniversary of marriage in September.


The newest edition to our family, Truffle quickly grew in size (75+ lbs) and worked her way into our hearts in 2012. She will celebrate her first birthday on New Years Eve!

Family Trips and Events. A few links and photos

In March we welcomed Truffle to our family. July we went to Michigan to help Celine celebrate her 80th birthday. We also attended our first ever Rapids Game at Dick's Sporting Goods Park, and went camping as a family. In October, we celebrated Gram's 90th birthday, and enjoyed a visit from the Matthews. Then we went to Florida and enjoyed vacation time in Cocoa Beach and Orlando. In November and December we cheered on Matt Barden all the way to the State Finals in HS Football.

Carrie and Alan - 20 years together!

In April, Carrie and I celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary and 20 years from our very first date. Carrie continues to work at Comcast and looks forward to being able to work from home some in 2013. Alan left ProBuild after nearly 5 years and went to a small software firm called GroupSystems in August. We had a blast participating in the Great Urban Race in August with our friends Armann and Laura. We are thankful for our loving families and the many amazing friendships we cherish and enjoy!
