Here is our 2016 Hubbard Christmas Card Video! This Christmas we want to share with your our “funnest” thing we do at home!! …. which is Family Night aka Family Home Evening (FHE)! Enjoy our family in 60 seconds.
PS – See our last post for our digital 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. 🙂 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!
Here’s our past years Christmas Cards:
It’s been a while. I’ve been happily engaged in photography and missionary work.
Since I’m not on here very often anymore, I just wanted to let you know places that my work has been featured on lately:
General Conference: Father’s by Elder Christofferson – April 2016
Gospel Topics: Emergency Preparedness
Our Family’s Journey to the “Mormon Disneyland”
“Because I am a Child of God” Music Video
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!

Hey!! So I have a lot of ideas of things to write about but I feel like I’m going to take some time to fix up my blog. I have a ton of broken links and pictures.
Our family is doing well. We have been just living life and busy as ever.
Dallin finished his PhD last summer and started medical school last August. So far it’s going well and time is flying by.
Our little baby girl is grown big. She is over 3 months old now. She is sooo cute.
I’m busy being MOM and wife of a medical student! My oldest son is in pre-school for 2 days of the week then we do home school the rest of the days with my middle son who is 2 years old.
My oldest son is picking up reading really fast! I can’t keep up with teaching him how to read.
I’m still taking pictures for our church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I’ve been on a church service mission for almost a year now. I can’t believe how much my photography has improved this year. I really feel like my talents in photography has been a gift from God.
I love sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ through words and photography!
I know The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church of God on the earth today. If you have any questions, please let me know!
We are going to do a digital Christmas card this year again! It’s just easier and it simplifies our Christmas.
This year we welcome a little girl named Emily. 7 lbs even and 20 inches long. We love her so much!
Here’s our past years Christmas Cards:
This is the 2015 Christmas video from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called “A Savior is Born”.
So I made up some blog goals for 2014 last January. How did I do?
4 out of 13 completed
8 out of 13 partially completed
4 out of 13 not completed
That’s not bad! I thought I would’ve done horrible since I spent 6 months recovering from a data disaster and most of the year figuring out what was making me sick. Then having two active little boys, this blog just wasn’t a priority!
SO ONE BIG THANK YOU TO ALL THE READERS FOR BEING PART OF OUR FAMILY BLOG!
What’s in store for 2015? I guess you’ll have to wait and see.
One thing is that I’m not going to focus on is the numbers but on the individual people who read and comment. Numbers don’t matter as much as people.
I’m excited to get to know you guys better!
A couple of months ago, I realized that I was feeling sick after eating dairy or gluten. It was after a long trial and error to figure out why I was feeling so sick. I’m still in the process of getting a diagnose but at least a feel a little bit better being off dairy and gluten. This may be another auto-immune disorder to add to my great list of auto-immune disorders.
Last month, my gluten free friend and I went to the Gluten Free Expo. It was a lot of fun. Here are some pictures.
So this Thanksgiving, my mother in law made me some gluten free stuffing… which is probably my favorite Thanksgiving dish. I’m super grateful because pretty much you can find anything in gluten free now-a-days… well… except for butter croissants. I’m still waiting for the day when I can eat those again. 🙂
I have a lot to be grateful for. My husband has been so kind during my journey of finding out what is wrong with me.
My kids are so funny. They make me laugh even on days when I don’t feel good. Being a parent makes you have to work even when you’re sick but it’s worth the sacrifice because of the joy I feel when I’m with my kids.
I’m grateful for my parents who have taken care of me during all my childhood health problems and for the great doctors I have.
I’m super duper grateful for the atonement of Jesus Christ. I mess up everyday but I’m soooooo grateful that I can try again and pray so God can forgive me. Seriously, it’s the greatest feeling ever to feel forgiven. I’ve notice I’ve been getting better at accessing the blessings of the atonement. I can tell that it doesn’t take me as long to ask for forgiveness.
Thanksgiving really is a nice time to spend with my family and think about all the things I’m grateful for.
What are you grateful for today?
