Dear Friends and Family,
Wow another year has flown by and it is again the holidays! We have had a very busy year here in the Herman household, I hardly know where to start. Most of you already know by now that we are indeed expecting another baby in May. Karin's pregnancy is going well and we have been told through genetic testing that it will be a girl. All of us are very excited to welcome her into our family. As if that wasn't big enough news we also bought a new house in August and we are all enjoying having more room in our grown up house. Elijah is growing by leaps and bounds. Everyday he is talking a little more and making a little more sense. He loves playing with cars and trains, he is all boy. He has learned to petal his tricycle and can ride quite a long way when given a chance.

This year we also welcomed some new faces and said goodbye to some others. In March Brad sadly lost his Grandpop Nate. He is missed greatly, but we feel honored to have had such a wonderful man in the family for as long as we did. In December Brad lost Mommom Emmy. Just a week after her 89th birthday. She had an amazing life and Brad gave one of the eulogies. In June we were blessed with a new niece, Cadyn Nyland, she was born healthy on her Gramma's birthday. She is a beautiful baby and is already growing so fast. We have also made new friends and seen some old friends move away.

All in all we have had a busy yet wonderful year. Our family is healthy and happy. We hope that all of you are well and ready to ring in a new year. We are so glad to have you all in our lives and for the many blessings we receive from having wonderful friends and family like you.

With Love,

Brad, Karin, Elijah, and One on the way in May.
