In lieu of Christmas cards this year I’m doing a blog post to update you all about what’s been going on in our lives lately and share some photos. I’m sorry this isn’t a beautiful physical photo you can put on your fridge so you can look at all our lovely faces when you’re digging for holiday leftovers, but if you request I’ll send you a copy 😉
We hope you are all doing well and enjoy reading a bit about us. Please comment at the bottom of the post if you like. We would love to hear from you too 🙂
When 2017 began we were anticipating Malcolm’s arrival with much excitement. Malcolm was born January 27th on his due date. He was happy and healthy, and though the labor was somewhat long it was a positive experience for us. Jordan was able to take time off work to spend with Malcolm and I, and we cherished those days. (Read more about Malcolm’s arrival here.)
In April Jordan moved his home office to The Space Studios in Vancouver. He has been spending his days there recording and writing music. The past year he has had many great opportunities including trips and collaborations. He released another Christmas album with his band Forest Creatures. We would love for you to have a listen! You can find it here. Malcolm might even make an appearance in one of the songs.
My maternity leave ended in November and I started working with a local fashion company called Strathcona Stockings. I began sewing together sleep masks and packaging socks. I am able to work from home, and I am thankful that I can still spend my days with Malcolm.
We are celebrating Malcolm’s first Christmas this year by creating some family traditions, including our annual Christmas party Get in the Christmas Spirit Eve, listening to Christmas music, and building a blanket fort on Christmas Eve.
May you enjoy the holidays and time with friends and family.
Merry Christmas from the Bennetts
