Merry Christmas!
2012 has been another eventful year for the Laing family. 

LeGrand is in his second year serving as the Principal at the Timpview High School Seminary in Provo.  He is really enjoying the experiences he is having with the students and faculty there.  LeGrand was released from serving as bishop in April. 

We sold our old home and purchased a new one.  We’re still in Springville but just on the other side of town.  The kids had to change schools, which has been difficult for them but they have quickly found lots of great new friends.  Although the adjustment has been and continues to be difficult for us as well, we are enjoying our new ward and stake.  We are surrounded by lots of great people.  We LOVE our new Home and feel so blessed!!!!   

The best part of the year was the birth of our 5th child- a daughter whom we named Brielle.  Despite a difficult pregnancy, Becca again did an amazing job delivering yet another healthy baby.  Brielle has been an absolute joy to our family!  We love her so much!

Brayden is in 6th grade and played Tackle Football this fall.  LeGrand was his coach and they both had a blast!!  We all had tons of fun cheering for Brayden and watching him grow!  He LOVES it, just like his Dad!! 

Adelyn is in 4th grade, in the school Choir, playing Basketball and being my huge helper here at home.  She is soooo good with Brielle.  It’s been nice having a baby when we have such capable helpers!!  

Sophie is in 2nd grade and is becoming quite an artist!  She is also in love with her baby sister and is so sweet and full of happy energy.  Sophie has the best imagination ever.  She has fun and helps who ever she’s with to have fun too.

Kolby is almost 5. Wow, where has the time gone.  He’s had quite the adjustment with the hard pregnancy, moving and not being the baby anymore.  He love Brielle so much, maybe too much but has become a huge mamma’s boy.  He loves to be where I am and he totally takes care of me.  He’s such a helper, he opens the doors for me, gets things for me and even helps me up from the couch.  He’s my little buddy!!  I’ve really enjoyed this time with my Kolbs-buddy.  I’ll really miss him next year when he starts Kindergarten. 

Brielle is growing up way too fast!!  It has been incredible having her in our family!  She has all of us wrapped around her little finger.  She is laughing, rolling over and makes us smile all day long.  She is such an angel and we are grateful that Heavenly Father sent her to us!!! 

We are so blessed.  We love you and are grateful for you.
May God bless you with a wonderful 2013!
