Here’s our family Christmas letter and picture for 2007. Enjoy!
2007 is almost over, and the Andrew and Robin Lambert family is doing great! Here’s a quick update on us! The most important event of the year occurred on October 11, 2007 — the birth of our son James Andrew Lambert. The last two months have been wonderful and challenging, and we’re so thrilled to have baby James become a part of our lives.
Lily turned three in May and is just adorable. She’s quite precocious and always keeps us smiling and laughing with her cute comments and sweet demeanor. Six-year-old Brianna is in the first grade and loves to color and play with “My Little Ponies.” She’s a natural performer and we’re thinking of signing her up for Sunshine Generation in January. Parley, who was baptized in July, is a very intelligent 3rd grader who inherited his father’s tendency to talk too much in class. He gets a kick out of putting Legos together and assembling Transformers, and he loves playing computer games. He’s now on a Junior Jazz basketball team and really enjoys it.
We took some great vacations to Las Vegas, Midway, the beautiful Oregon Coast, East Canyon Resort and Bear Lake. Next year we’re thinking about visiting the Grand Canyon! Robin and I also took a Caribbean cruise to Miami, Key West and Cozumel, Mexico to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversarym. I had the opportunity to visit Houston (TX), Springfield (MO), Cedar Rapids (IA), Birmingham (AL), Philadelphia (PA) and Orlando and Tallahassee (FL) on business trips this year. Add to that scout camps and youth conference, and you can see it was a busy travel year.
Robin spends her time as a full-time mother, feeding the baby, caring for the kids, making meals, feeding the baby, reading stories, making our home more comfortable and feeding the baby! She does a great job and we’re all blessed to have her in our lives. She was recently called as an Activity Days leader and works with the 9 year old girls in our ward.
I finished my MBA from the University of Utah in July and during my two-year program I learned a great deal and made some wonderful friendships. My job at Unishippers continues to be challenging and enjoyable, although I’m beginning to look for ways to more fully utilize my education to better support my growing family. My service as a counselor in the bishopric continues to be time-consuming but very rewarding.
I continue to sing with my acapella quintet “Harmonix” to satisfy my performing bug. It’s great to have an excuse to get together with these four friends of mine from high school and sing for ward parties and sacrament meetings. We have been invited to sing at the “First Night” celebration in downtown Salt Lake this year. On New Year’s Eve we’ll be performing in the Empire Room of the Joseph Smith Memorial Building from 8:15 to 9:00. If you’re in the area that night, stop by for a listen!
Finally, both Robin and I started blogs a few months ago, and we have been fairly actively posting updates, pictures, videos, etc. If you’re interested, check in on us from time to time. And feel free to post a comment or two if you want — we’d love to hear from you!
Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
