Christmas Card 2017 Back

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Sorry for the late Christmas Card and family update. As you can see it’s been a little busy around here with a new little one.

Dallin: He is in his third year of medical school (post-PhD). He has rotated through internal medicine, surgery, neurology, occupational medicine, rheumatology and psychiatry. He is having fun working on his side business and research project. This year he was called to be the primary chorister at church leading the children’s choir. How he finds time to do everything?…. I don’t know! šŸ™‚

May Bo: I have been busy running kids to school and teaching them at home. There is lots and lots of laundry now with 4 kids. The summer was really busy with soccer and swimming lessons. This year consisted a lot of doctor visits which took up a lot of my free time and it did not allow me to take as many pictures as I’m used to. The nice part of going to the doctors is that I got to run into Dallin at the hospital!

Micah: He discovered his passion for chess this year. He learned the game really fast through an online website called Chess Kid. We spend our weekends at chess tournaments and we are having a great time. Micah loves to read. He spends a lot of time reading and writing books. In August, he started Kindergarten but after 5 weeks we decided to advance him to first grade. Micah loves first grade!

Quentin: He is learning to read and is doing really well. He is on lesson 60 in the book called “Teach your child to read in 100 easy lessons.” Quentin’s strength is showing love to everyone including his brothers and sister. He loves to snuggle and play with legos. He really enjoyed swimming lessons this summer!

Emily:Ā She loves being an older sister. She is girly as girls get. She loves purses, shoes, nail polish, jewelry, shopping carts, babies and pretty things. She is dying to get potty trained but we’re not quite ready for that yet.Ā šŸ˜‚

Jacob:Ā We call him Jake, Jakey or JJ. He is just barely learning to smile. We love him so much and we are so excited he joined our family. We can already tell he loves music!

Enjoy this video we make of our little Jake! We love you all and love all the cards/updates we get from you.

Cute Santa

We had a cute professional Santa come to our Christmas party so I had to take advantage of the moment to take some cute pictures of my kids!

Santa with the littlest one:

Micah was telling Santa he wanted a robot!

Quentin says he wants a Star Wars lego set.

Emily didn’t care for Santa at all! She insisted on wearing her favorite Halloween skirt. She was born in October so I guess she must like Halloween more than Christmas?

Christmas Card 2016

christmas-card

Thanks to all you who have sent us Christmas Cards!!! We love them!! One day we’ll send out physical Christmas Cards again but for now… this digital Christmas Cards is all I can handle! We are making a Christmas Video this year but we can’t finish that until Dallin’s finals are over. šŸ™‚ So keep checking back for that video!

Dallin – Finished his first year and started his 2nd year of medical school.

May Bo – Hmm… what have I been doing?! I clean everyday and do laundry then the kids mess it up before Dallin gets back from school. The laundry is seriously getting bigger and bigger with 3 kids!!!

Micah – Is still in preschool but is doing 1st grade math and reading on the side. He is also taking piano lesson and loves it very much! It’s a struggle to keep up with this kid.

Quentin – Loves to play with cars and Legos. Quentin is a computer genius. He knows how to do practically everything on the computer. Quentin is only 3 years old but he can play Minecraft on the computer all by himself. He can find things that we delete in the recycle bin and navigates the internet like a pro…… we definitely have to keep an eye on this kid!

Emily – Is cute and she walks now. We call her our “Boo Boo Bear!” She loves to eat chicken and yogurt. She can say “Mama” “Dada” “Uh-oh!” “All Done!”

As a family we started 2 different LLCs this year. Barolock was started by Dallin and hisĀ friends who made a new design for an orthopedic hip. May Bo Hubbard LLC is just for fun which consist of all the random blogs and photography stuff I do.

Dallin and IĀ are also working on a research project on ECMO. Dallin is the PI and May Bo programmed a whole database for this project! We work under a physician and nurse. A team of medical students, undergrads and a high school student was miraculously formed to help us out with this project. We hope we can help newborn babies and children who are very sick. DallinĀ makes trips to the NICU to see these helpless babies and hope we can help improve ECMO. Right now 50% of patients die during or after being on ECMO. It has actually been a spiritual experience for both of us as we have seen God guide us to work on this project together. We have felt God’s love as we learn about the babies on ECMO. Both Dallin and I have shed a few tears as we’ve worked on this project and we pray we can help improve the care for children on ECMO. God is good!Ā ThisĀ research project has brought the Christmas Spirit of service into our home. It goes along great withĀ The Light the World initiative by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Merry Christmas to you all!! Please send us your family updates!

Free Big Minecraft Printable

Hey! My oldest son just turned 5 and we had a Minecraft themed week for him! We made a Mincraft Cake and ate colorful pasta. Decorated the house in green, white and black streamers. He woke up to a big creeper present in the living room! One of the presents he got was a Minecraft torch! My husband tried to make his fifth birthday super special for him. We had friends come visit us throughout the week but had the main celebration together as a family.

I made this 13″ by 17″ Minecraft Printable. At first it was just for fun but then I used it for Primary singing time as a “Armor of God” lesson. The little guy is suppose to represent a LDS Missionary but you can create your own person here. I put magnets on mine so they can stick to a whiteboard.

Ideas to use theseĀ printable:

  • Armor of God Lesson:Ā Ephesians 6:7 – 17,Ā D&C 27:15ā€“18
  • Pin the Armor on the Minecraft Person
  • Teaching kids programming by creating the formulas for the armor on a whiteboard.

I love the gospel so much! I am so grateful to be able to serve the Lord with this spiritual gift He has given me of photography. He has truly magnified my talents as I have been willing to serve Him and I am truly humbled and grateful for this experience!
