Merry Christmas from the HALSETH Family!

We pray you have had a blessed year! Here are a few Halseth family highlights of 2014:

Rachel Rose is three and growing up before our very eyes.  Healthy, energetic, and thriving.  She loves to laugh, and can often be heard giggling with her siblings.  She looks forward to preschool two mornings a week. She can almost swim on her own.  She enjoys playing outside, swinging, puppies, playdates, and of course Elsa from Frozen! We appreciate her bright eyes, kind heart, and sweet spirit.

Joshua is a big 1st grader now going to school all day for the first time. He is somewhat philosophical for a seven year old and we are often intrigued when he speaks his mind.  He isn’t shy and can start up a conversation with almost anyone!  Joshua was a spy for Halloween, which is also his current career goal.  He loves legos, collecting rocks and playing soccer.  He soon starts basketball and wrestling.

Abby is a 4th grader.  She enjoys volleyball, basketball and soccer.  She is a very helpful sister.  We see her giftings as she is able to motivate and organize younger kids easily.  Always our artist, this year she is into loom bands and knitting. In Scotland, she was a face painter at VBS, and loved seeing the sea.  
Nathan is a 6th grader now with a school locker.  He really enjoys changing classes each hour. He plays saxophone. Nathan completed hunter safety, and hunted pheasant and deer with Dad this fall.  He loved fishing - both off the pier in Scotland, as well as on a four day SD trip with Grandpa Morse.

Matt enjoyed another summer with his family while working with students in Scotland. He enjoys short getaways with Jenni, or day trips with the kids - especially in nature. He also loves­ his men’s bible study and Jr. High ministry. He is active in sports and is coaching Nathans 6th grade basketball team! Heart Update: We are very thankful to report that all tests came back normal on Matt’s heart!

Jenni is more into a rhythm of managing life as a parent of four kids :)  She has even completed a few home projects this year!  She enjoyed ministry and travel with the family in Scotland, and especially the Scottish people.  She continues to enjoy biking, walking, reading, and Mom’s bible study.

Praying your Christmas shines brightly with many of God’s blessings!

Love, The Halseth Family
