My holiday greetings come to you with great joy and a little fanfare. Christmas afternoon we were blessed with the birth of Enzo Antonio Silveira Nowadnick. We are all delighted, especial Mom and Dad, Manoela and Kevin. Great grandma and grandpa are pretty tickled, too.

To this joy, we add the news that Katie and Kyle are expecting a baby later in February. We couldn’t be more tickled for everyone.IMG_3769

My husband, Kurt and I are well. For the first time in several (many?) years, I have no joint replacements to announce. Last spring I finished up my securities licensing, whining every step of the way through exam prep and the final test! Much more fun were speaking gigs with various women’s groups. Together we got to connect our delightfully ordinary stories with God’s extra-ordinary love and faithfulness, truly a time of giggles and groans.

Kurt’s still truckin’. His weeks with Evergreen Moving are full and without complaint. The two of us enjoyed family time away in Hawaii, Atlanta, Florida, and Palm Springs, trips we’re hoping to repeat this year. He and the boys always delight in their time behind his Barefoot Sanger and Kyle’s MasterCraft, skiing and wakeboarding. I’m still on the beach with an iced mocha.

We hope this finds you well and looking forward to a fabulous new year. Blessings to you this day and always!
