Merry Christmas from The Crane Family – 2013
We wish you all joy and happiness in the coming year 2014, time goes by so fast now.
Early in 2013, we got a chance to see “SontheElder” in Dallas when he was on leave (after his military tour in Afghanistan ended late 2012) and we all had a wonderful time. Husband and I also got a chance to visit with some good friends while we were in Dallas.
In the spring, we got a chance to visit with (Husband’s dad and stepmom) in LA and also some dear friends in San Diego. Sadly, Husband’s dad passed away in September and SontheYounger joined us in October for a return trip to California to be with family and friends in remembrance and celebration of his dad.
UKC Ch. Bifrost’s Bucca Dhu – Age 8
UKC Ch. Bifrost’s Corena, Corena – Age 8
I’m still working at the college, where I finished classes and graduated Summa Cum Laude with my Bachelor’s in the summer graduation ceremony, although without Husband tutoring me through Algebra and Science who knows what might have happened. I’m in the process of writing my 1st novel, but as you can imagine, it will take time.
SontheYounger visited in the summer and we enjoyed having him chauffeur us around town with his new driving permit while gaining experience before getting his license. He did pass the Arkansas state boating exam and we spent a lot of time out on the lake with him learning to wakeboard.
In September, SontheElder, currently based in Colorado, was promoted to Sergeant. We are so very proud of him.
Ch. Bifrost’s Love at First Sight – Rebel – Age 7 – Or as she is lovingly known “That Bad Girl”
Bifrost’s Olympic Gold – RuShou – Age 4
Husband and SontheYounger started building a greenhouse for my herb/plant business last summer. Husband finished it after SontheYounger went home and now a lot of plants, seeds and cutting are flourishing there this winter.
We just had an incredible winter ice/snow storm and the dogs and I were housebound for 4 days without power, Husband missed out on the fun because he was doing his December international travel craziness. Thank goodness the dogs helped keep me warm.
Our Newfs – Bucca (age 8), Corena (age 8), Rebel (age 7) and RuShou (age 4) are all well and wonderful.
Our love to you and yours, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
