Dear family and friends,
It’s hard to believe another year has passed. We have so much for which to be grateful! The choicest blessings of course are the associations we have with each of you. Even though our paths do not cross too often, we express our love and thanks for the blessing you are in our life. Here is a brief 2011 update on the Crockett family.
Kristin, Greg and Madi added a precious new little girl to their family April 15th. Tax day was never so sweet! Sofia Noelle was born with tons of dark curly hair and a smile that melts your heart.
She loves to giggle and play with her big sister. Beautiful and intelligent 5 year-old Madi started preschool this year, loves taking dance lessons, playing with her cousins and joins her mom dad and baby sister in the Spanish branch singing all the primary songs in both English and Spanish. Kristin is a counselor in the Primary Presidency and Greg serves in the Young Men’s Presidency. They live in Boise but visit Salt Lake often so Grammy and Papa can see those adorable grandchildren.
Denny is officially the BEST uncle in the whole world ... or so say his nieces and nephew who absolutely adore this guy.
He has spent another year coaching football at Brighton high where they had a very successful season making it into the state 5A playoffs .
He lives in Lehi which allows us to see him quite often. His big black lab "Jack" is Teri’s on-call body guard whenever her hubby is away on business .
Denny had some rotator cuff surgery this fall (old football injuries) and is presently in rehab making good progress. He serves in his ward as a teacher’s quorum advisor and totally loves working with the young men. He’s excited about a new business venture which will launch early in 2012.
Camee, Matt, Ty Ty and Kaylee are excited to announce the birth of a new little baby brother who will join the family toward the end of March 2012.
We can’t wait! Adventurous Ty turned 5 early in December. His days are filled with soccer, singing, preschool, cars and fun. This kid is ALL boy!! Adorable Kaylee (age 2) loves to do everything her big brother does plus a few extra all girl things. Besides taking dance, Kaylee captivates audiences with her cute low alto voice singing many songs including the ever popular "My Address Song" , complete with her current residence location and ZIP code. Not bad for a two-year-old! In addition to her
never ending mom duties , Camee serves in the Young Women's Presidency of the Spanish branch. Matt is a counselor in the branch presidency and continues to grow his business with brothers Greg and Scott. Their beautiful home in Boise is just 3 minutes away from the newly announced Meridian Idaho Temple.
If you’ve been watching TV the past few months you’ll know that McKay has had quite a year! He spent much of this summer / fall in Los Angeles appearing with BYU's a cappella group Vocal Point on NBC's "The Sing Off". Sixteen groups were chosen from hundreds who auditioned around the United States to participate in this national competition. Vocal Point week after week continued to win the hearts of viewers throughout the country with their exciting performances.
They finished the competition in the TOP 5 but came in first in the hearts of many. We were able to go down to LA to watch a few of the tapings, the most recent being the Christmas special where McKay appeared not only in the Vocal Point number with the show’s host, but also performed with two of the celebrity judges in a number. A special "Sing Off: Songs of the Season" Holiday CD was released in November with Vocal Point singing McKay’s beautiful arrangement of the song "Infant Holy, Infant Lowly". Check it out on iTunes. McKay is a music media major and will graduate from BYU (and Vocal Point) in April.
In April our youngest darling Cortnee became
Cortnee Furness marrying her high school sweetheart Todd who returned last year from his very successful LDS mission in Hartford, Connecticut. Their April 29th date in the Salt Lake Temple was shared with another famous couple. Yes, that was the same day the Royal wedding of Prince William and Lady Kate took place.
But as Cort and Todd put it , "the real royal wedding took place not in London but right here in Salt Lake City." We agree! They live in the married student housing apartments adjacent to the University of Utah where Cort continues her studies as an Elementary Education major and Todd is a business major at LDS Business College. Their ward calling has them serving in a very special assignment to the Primary Children’s Hospital.
Teri and Den (a.k.a. Mom and Dad, Grammy and Papa) are loving this season of life with wonderful children and grandchildren –(being a grandma and grandpa is the best)! Every day that we have to spend with family and friends is such a blessing. In addition to Grammy duties, Teri stays busy as the wife of a singles Ward Bishop and singing in the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
Her mother gave us all a real scare this summer with a serious health condition but thankfully she's doing much better now. Den is in his third year serving as a YSA Bishop and truly loves the association with the young single adults. He continues to stay involved with a few business ventures which, when combined with family and bishop duties, tends to keeps his schedule quite full.
As we come to the end of 2011 and usher in another new year we send our love and warm wishes. We pray that 2012 will--for each of you--be filled with happiness, hope, health and increased faith in Him who is the giver of all lasting peace and prosperity.

Dear Elders and Sisters,
Merry Christmas! We send our love and greetings on this sacred day to each of you. It is difficult to celebrate Christmas without reflecting on the magnificent experiences we shared together as missionaries in Texas. Thank you for the many cards, letters and calls we have received this holiday season. You will never know how much we love that. We are putting the finishing touches on our 2011 family letter reviewing the events in the Crockett family this past year and will post it it here on the blog sometime next week. But we could not let this special day pass without expressing to you our love and wishes for a blessed holiday season. May the hope of Him whose birth we celebrate this day fill your hearts with confidence and love. May this Christmas be a time of forgetting self and finding time for others, just as you did so marvelously in the mission field.. Let it be a time for discarding the meaningless and for stressing eternal values. Let it be a time of peace because we have found peace in His teachings. May we each pause today and feel His presence in our lives. "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: . . .and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace"(Isaiah 9: 6). We testify that He lives!
With our deep love,
President and Sister Crockett

Dear Elders and Sisters--
After hearing from many of you over the past few months we have decided to hold our Mission Reunion once each year in April. Because of busy school , work--- and for many---growing family schedules, it was felt that we would better serve everyone by meeting once a year instead of twice. That doesn't mean we want you to wait until April to hear from you . So if you're in SLC and can stop by , we would love to give you a hug and hear whats going on in your lives. Please, PLEASE keep those calls, emails and visits coming.
We love you all and have you in our prayers each and every day. How grateful we are for our wonderful Texas Fort Worth Mission family. May the Lord continue to bless you and keep you safe in all that you are doing. We look forward to being with you again in April!
President and Sister Crockett
P.S. For our Senior Couples--we are planning a special get together in late October early November. We'll be in touch soon!
P.P.S If you get real homesick, you can always watch the Tabernacle Choir broadcasts each Sunday and wave at Sister Crockett. You cant miss her--- just look in the front row and find prettiest smile in the entire choir. That's her!!!
