Merry Christmas from the Johnson Family!
2016 has been a trying year for our family, but there have been many happy and joyful times spent together as well,
and we have a new appreciation for our many blessings.
In January Kari and Kaitlyn turned 21 years old. They are now seniors in
college, and will graduate in the spring. Kari - Washington State
University Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing, and Kaitlyn - Eastern
Washington University Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology. We are so
happy to have them both home now for Christmas!
Richard asked us for Ashley's hand in marriage in February, and proposed
at the Pittock Mansion in Portland. We began planning for another
Johnson Wedding in August! Richard is an Engineer for the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers. Ashley still teaches at Canyon Creek Middle School.
Casey graduated in May from Washington State University with a
Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine. She and Lukas relocated to Toledo,
Washington. Lukas teaches at Toledo Middle School, and Casey is a
Veterinarian in Chehalis. Lukas and Casey are enjoying their new
community, having some acreage for some critters, and grew a large
garden this summer. We love having them live closer to us!
Emily and Laurie enjoyed several bazaars together and creating new
designs for their Etsy site; Lottie Elizabeth. Emily still teaches preschool
at Gause Elementary and loves it. Jacob works at Silver Star Industries, and volunteers at
Skamania County EMS. He will begin an internship with the Hockinson Fire Department in January. Jacob and Emily
bought an Escape this year and enjoy traveling around on lots of adventures.
Three days before Ashley and Richard's wedding, Eldon was rushed to
the hospital and diagnosed with pneumonia. His condition rapidly
deteriorated, and the next day he was put on a ventilator in the ICU.
Before being sedated he asked Lukas to walk Ashley down the aisle. By
the day of the wedding, he'd been transferred to OHSU in critical
condition with severe pneumonia, Acute Respiratory Distress, and septic
shock. He was on life support for 6 days and in the hospital for 12 days.
By the grace of God and some very skilled
doctors and nurses, he survived. With the
kindness and hard work of friends and
family, Ashley and Richard's wedding was
beautiful and went on as planned. At the end
of August, Eldon was finally able to see Ashley in her wedding dress, when we watched the
newlyweds open their wedding gifts. They shared a Father/Daughter dance, and we ate the
top of the wedding cake. Eldon is now back to work full time, and feels stronger each day.
We are so thankful for our Family and Friends, and feel especially blessed this holiday season. Wishing
you love, health, and happiness in 2017.
Love, Eldon, Laurie, Ashley, Richard, Lukas, Casey,
Emily, Jacob, Kari and Kaitlyn
