Beaver Family Christmas Album 2015

History - Why we do this

In 2006 Guy created his first Christmas CD. He shared it with family members and they enjoyed it enough to request an encore every year since. Unfortunately, this tradition left the Beavers with little time to think about Christmas cards. So the logical leap was to send out Christmas CDs as Christmas cards.

Each year we try to put a little something for everyone on our Christmas CD: new, classic, rock, country, upbeat, poignant, whimsical and spiritual. In short, we are liable to offend anyone in the hopes of providing songs that please everyone. We hope you find a few tunes you like this year. More importantly, we wish you and yours a very merry Christmas!

Family - Our Christmas letter

I logged my 19th year with my company this August. In my position as Director of Technology Development, I manage a dozen great developers who create industry-leading analytical tools. Whenever possible, I love to grab a camera and exercise the right side of my brain by shooting things.

Had some health challenges this year, but is now doing relatively well. She is still an at-home mom trying to stay one step ahead of our precocious, sassy young boy.

Our 11-year-old is into books about mythology and enjoys medieval games and subject matter. He is a whiz with electronics and a straight-A student, frequently bringing home awards for his class work and character.

We often spend our summers in Wisconsin to visit family and spend time on the lake we love to fish. This year was no exception and we caught our fill of bluegill and tossed back many a "small-eye" (undersized walleye). We lost our kitty cat, Bernie, this year after 13 years as part of the family. Maddie, our rescue puppy, still keeps us safe from all manner of inanimate objects and mysterious noises.

Christmas Wishes
From our family to yours, we wish you a merry, safe, and memorable Christmas and a happy, healthy and prosperous new year!
