Happy New Year Everyone!!

Addison, Cambria, Weston & Brynlee

This is the picture we put on our Christmas card for 2009. This picture was taken in August of 2009 when the kids were 2 years old and 2 months old. Now they are over 2 and 1/2 years old!! The following is the letter we sent out with our Christmas card.

The Cluff Chronicles
Dear Family and Friends,
We hope that this letter finds all of you healthy and happy at this beautiful season of the year.
2009 has been a good year for us despite all the issues that have faced our country.
Jeremiah continues to work with Belmont Homes and serves as an Elder's Quorum teacher in our ward. In his spare time he loves to read, watch movies and sports and play with our kids.
Jayne's life continues to revolve around her four 2-1/2 year-olds and serves in the young women's program in our ward. In her spare time she enjoys napping, listening to political talk radio, exercising, visiting with friends and reading.
Cambria continues in her motherly ways. She's very thoughtful of others and is very sensitive to the needs of her siblings. In her spare time she enjoys looking at books, being tickled, playing with jewelry, coloring, playing with puzzles, cuddling with mommy and daddy and cleaning up messes (and we never even taught her to do that!).
Addison continues to be our mellow fellow that is talking a lot these days, but we can't always decipher what he's saying. It sounds like a mix between English and Chinese, but it is just so cute to see him with that serious face trying to tell us so much. In his spare time he loves using his Gumby body to jump off couches on his head, doing headstands, playing chase with Brynlee, singing, looking at books, swinging, playing with the shape sorter and stacking blocks.
Weston continues to be a magnet to all types of trouble and messes. Anytime it's quiet in our house and Weston is nowhere to be seen, we know we're in for a scary surprise. In his spare time he loves giving great big bear hugs and kisses, exploring everything, eating dirt, wrestling with Addison, looking at books, playing with cars, playing in the backyard and climbing up on things.
Brynlee continues to be our sweet and strong-willed little girl. She is talking up a storm these days and is just so expressive with her voice and facial expressions. She's already counting to ten while skipping the number 7 every time. In her spare time she enjoys watching "Barney" (she loves to sing the "I love you" song from these movies), looking at books, talking, dancing, going on wagon rides to play at the park and playing chase with Addison.
We are so grateful for the many blessings that we have in our lives because of our Savior, Jesus Christ. We consider each of you a great blessing in our lives and we wish you all a Merry Christmas and much health and happiness in 2010.
Jeremiah, Jayne, Cambria, Addison, Weston and Brynlee Cluff
