The Bartmann Christmas Card 2008

Four Ladies and a Daddy

by Jaimie

Merry Christmas from the Bartmanns!..

Our sensitive, full-of-love caregiver and mother hen.
She has my personality and Joe’s passion to learn.
Currently in 2nd grade~ reading, writing and first confession.
An author, an artist and boy magnet too.

The gatherer, leader and center of fun.
She has my spunk and Joe’s carefree attitude to be who she is.
Kindergarten is how Mesa spends her days.
Dancing, mischief, directing and a heart of gold.
Creative, bling and glamor, a little loud and God’s gift of laughter.

Our compassionate, determined, curly ball of love.
An almost-vegetarian, kisses, hugs and farmer girl.
Zoey has my tendency to follow and Joe’s ability to perform with confidence.
Much of Zoey’s time is spent at preschool~ coloring, art projects, programs and learning.
Singing, performing, dancing and more, the entertainer of the house.

Works for the Green Project in Sioux Falls and Rural Learning Center in Howard.
Changing the world one task at a time.
A man of many talents and passion to do what he loves and give back to the community like he learned from Grandpa Knox.
Spiritual, hikes and nature galore it’s what keeps him energized.

10 years of Human Resources and 7 ½ of being a mom.
No job more important nor passion of mine deeper than teaching my girls to live a life full of love and love in their life.
My calling in life~ no question……FAMILY.

I am so blessed to have the family I do and hope this letter finds each of you a moment to reflect on the important people in life.

Merry Christmas from the Bartmanns!

    4 Ladies and a Daddy, you have a beautiful family! Nice way to send a Christmas greetng, so far I use the I’m not smart enough excuse to be that green.

    I’ve read The Shack, am going through Blue Like Jazz with a HS Cell group of girls at church. Am currently reading Hot, Flat, and Crowded by Thomas Friedman.

    I have a Publisher file of our Christmas card, is there a way to upload it to this site?

    If you send the card to me by email I’ll put it up for the whole world to see…

    The Shack is a gift from a friend. Almost finished it this weekend. One of those I started and didn’t get very far before it kind of went on hold. Just picked it up again this weekend…

    Have Hot Flat and Crowded too, but haven’t started it yet…
