Dear [PLURAL NOUN],
Well, here we are at the end of another [ADJECTIVE] year. We hope this holiday letter finds you well as you celebrate this joyous season of [HOLIDAY]. 2008 has been [ADJECTIVE] yet [ADJECTIVE] for us, with the children continuing to [VERB] like crazy.

She continues to play the [MUSICAL INSTRUMENT] and has performed in several recitals this year. Third-grader Gomez also has continued with his [MUSICAL INSTRUMENT] lessons and recitals and even has composed a [NOUN]. On the sports front, both children attend weekly [VIOLENT SPORT] training sessions. We experienced a [ADJECTIVE] change in our household earlier this year when we got two [PLURAL BABY ANIMAL]. It's been a [ADJECTIVE] transition, with many of our furnishings being [ADJECTIVE] if not completely [VERB ENDING IN "ED"] up. But they sure are cute. Jon Bon Jovi has had a busy and rewarding year at work and Anna continues to write and [VERB]. In addition, she began blogging six months ago, an activity she finds both [ADJECTIVE] and [ADJECTIVE]. She and Jon Bon Jovi have stepped up their [VIOLENT SPORT] training, which explains why they [VERB] funny. In short, life is [ADJECTIVE] and we are grateful. As always, we wish you, our [PLURAL NOUN], the happiest of holiday seasons and a new [NOUN] filled with joy and good health. Take care and we hope to [VERB] you soon.
Anna, Jon Bon Jovi, Morticia and Gomez
