HOW THE WEST FAMILY CELEBRATES CHRISTMAS Most Wonderful Time of the Year T he holidays are here, bringing what is traditionally my slow season. This year has been pretty overwhelming, and while I’m always happy for the opportunity to help my clients, I’m looking forward to taking a breather. It will also be a good opportunity to catch up on my reports. The plan is to start the year ahead and on the right foot. when I say she’s the most beautiful baby in the world. I don’t think Dana or Sabine will be joining the family on any beach camping trips just yet, but I’ll still have fun watching everyone “Ooo” and “Aaa” over the brand-new baby. To be honest, even with most of the family in town, our Christmas will be pretty low-key. That’s exactly

what I need after such a busy year. I just want to kick back and do an old-fashioned family game night. We’re fromWisconsin, so we like to play the dice game Shake. This game is kind of like Yahtzee, in that you’re rolling dice to make matches and get points. Wisconsin has a different version of the game that’s tons of fun. The first person to 10,000 points wins. We’ve also gotten into Mexican Train over the last few years, which is great because even the grandkids can have fun playing that. We don’t have big plans for the holidays, but I’m thankful to be spending Christmas with most of my family. I also want to take a moment to thank all of my clients for just a busy, wonderful 2019.

Thankfully, catching up on work isn’t the only thing I have to look forward over the holidays. Things are shaping up to be a pretty great West Family Christmas. My oldest, Shelley, is still teaching school on a U.S. military base in South Korea. She usually comes home for the summer, so in the winter she often spends Christmas with some friends. While Shelley will be spending the holidays with some friends in Europe, probably skiing in Germany, the rest of the family will be joining us in Texas this year. Kaye and I are very excited to have our youngest daughter, Monica, and her family coming in from California. I’m really hoping to take them out to Corpus Christi and drive down the beaches. We might even go camping! In California, you can’t camp on the beach, so I think the grandkids will really enjoy the experience. I’m also excited to announce that the family has gotten a little bigger this year. Our middle daughter, Dana, and her husband, Cullen, just welcomed their second child into the world in November. My new granddaughter’s name is Sabine, and I’m not biased

Your trust, kindness, and business have meant more than I can express.

I’m blessed to have you in my life and want to wish you all a merry Christmas and happy Holidays.
