This has not been the most organized Christmas season in the Park household, which I'm blaming on the short turn around between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year.  However, if you are reading this, please don't let the lack of a postage stamp keep you from believing that you are special to us and the wishes behind this virtual card are sincere! 
Our kids didn't really accomplish much this year but Sam and I do have some big news
We have an 8th grader and a 3rd grader in the house so most of my time is spent chauffeuring kids to activities or waiting on them to finish their activities.  This has led to my greatest accomplishment this year......making it to level 396 in Candy Crush.  I know you are impressed, especially if you are also addicted to that sweet little game. 
Sam's big news comes from our quick trip to Florida in September.  First person in line at Epcot!!  (Picture Clark Griswald running across an empty Wally World parking lot.).  Another amazing feat!!  Sam always thought he would be involved in coaching someday and this year he finally gets to fulfill that dream.  He is coaching the 3rd grade Lifegate Lions robotics team.  Not exactly what he had envisioned but he is enjoying it and learning A LOT!  Sam and Camden are excited about their upcoming competition.. 
OK so on to our kids.....obviously their lives are much more exciting than ours. 
Claremarie is in 8th grade and is getting very excited to be in high school next year (Mom and Dad not so much....).  She likes softball, plays piano and saxophone and is involved in several different activities at school and church.  She has started babysitting (always looking for new clients!) and really enjoys it. 
Camden is in 3rd grade.  He likes basketball and swim team and plays the piano.  In his spare time he draws lots and lots of cartoons.  He just told Sam and I the other day that he would like to be the person who makes the cartoons for movies.  Sounds good to us!! 

They are sometimes ornery but mostly happy, busy kids.  We know we are very blessed to be their parents!! 
The Parks are wishing you JOY at Christmas and FAITH, HOPE, and LOVE throughout 2014! 
Happy New Year!
Sam, Sherilyn, Claremarie and Camden
