Christmas Card 2019

So instead of sending all you guys this Christmas card in January (like we did last year… haha!) I decided to get it out by Thanksgiving this year!

This year started by finishing Dallin’s interviews for residency training: Albuquerque, Portland, Pheonix, and Tucson! We added on another 4,624 miles to our trip. We were on the road for three months traveling a total of 19,324 miles and completing interviews at twelve Universities. The kids loved it! We took the kids coast to coast to coast to coast! It was a lot of work but we are so glad we did it. We got to spend quality and quantity time with our kids. Both of our older boys were told to write their favorite memory as a school assignment and they both wrote about different aspects of our trip.

In March, we found out that Dallin “matched” at Indiana University-Purdue University for pediatric residency training. We found a house and bought it in April! In June, we packed everything up in a big 26-foot Penske moving truck. Dallin drove that huge truck the final 1,500 miles to our new home. We bought our house as an internet purchase so we didn’t see it in person until we walked in the door. The kids were professional travelers by the time of the move and they were super good on the moving trip. However, driving out of Utah was one of the hardest things I (May Bo) has ever had to do. Even writing about it reminds me of all the emotions I had that day!

When we got to Indiana we were greeted by friendly neighbors. To say that we love it here may be an understatement. We love the house, the neighborhood, the friends, the schools, and our church! Dallin LOVES his residency program. We feel super blessed.

Unfortunately, in March Dallin’s grandma passed away and then in April Dallin’s father passed away.

In October, we welcomed Cumorah to our family. Now we are adjusting to having a newborn around and enjoying all her cuteness.

We decided to ask the kids what they are grateful for and this is what they said:

Micah: My friends, my family, Jesus, Heavenly Father, The Book of Mormons, Veterans, People who died for our country, the computer, technology, the prophets because they teach us what is right

Quentin: Mom, dad, friends, family, our home, Christmas tree, video games, Santa, scripture study because it makes me feel lots of joy, toys, church because it makes feel peaceful

Emily: Jesus Christ died, pink blankey, Jesus is alive, sleeping, eating cereal, pink fan with butterflies, pillows that don’t fight, sharing, computer

Jakey: Toys, cars, trains, mimi, momma, dada, Micah, Quentin, Emily, baby, tree, cereal, chicken, apple, bike, nose, ears, eyes, hair, ice cream, belly button, toes, Jesus

Cumorah: milk, nini, mom, blankeys, being rocked (This is what the other kids thought she was grateful for… haha!)

We miss you guys in Utah. We also miss our friends we met coast-to-coast and overseas. We hope to hear an update from you all soon!

Love, The Hubbards

Christmas Card 2016

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. 🙂 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 his 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 I 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. Dallin 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! This research project has brought the Christmas Spirit of service into our home. It goes along great with 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!
