It's the most wonderful time of the year.

A virtual Christmas card from our computer to yours!

Dear Family and Friends,

It is hard to believe that it's time again for Christmas cards. 2008 has been a fast and busy year for our family. Scott and I started off the year by renting a U-haul and traveling with all of our belongings (which reminded us that too much belongs to us) from Raleigh to Snow Hill, NC where we will reside a couple of more years as we await the arrival of an ECU diploma. As in times past, where our wheels took us far and wide over the eastern parts of the country, we chose again to follow tradition. In below freezing weather we conquered the mountains of NC, traveled north to Jersey to pick up a motorcycle, only to return to our own beds that same night, then onward and westward to Franklin NC for a bit of summer vacation. Before the year ends we will again find ourselves on the road for Christmas in Mississippi.

While our tires were not turning we could be found weeding our first garden. We quickly found out that we were in for a big job, but we enjoyed reaping what we sowed. As for other hours of the day we could be found anxiously engaged with school and work. Scott has now finished a complete year of school. He worked tirelessly and the results have been positive. In the few hours between studying, he has enjoyed being a part of the ECU Baja team, and working on his motorcycle. Kimberly started off the year as a teller (bank, not fortune) and continued to search for a job in the school system. As the days went by the opportunities seemed slim, but to her surprise the beginning of November brought a new job with the local high school, as a teacher assistant in Special Ed. When she is not on the clock she enjoys viewing life through a camera lens or making hand crafted cards.

All in all our year has been full of many blessing and good health. We have enjoyed spending time with family and celebrating the adventures that come our way.

As we end this year that has brought so many economic challenges, we pray that we all may find time to remember the important things like spending a little longer with family and friends and remembering our Savior and his birth this Christmas Season.

We wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy and hopeful New Year!

All our love,
The Reed's
