Dear Friends and Family,

According to the Urban Dictionary, the term "bucket list" means:

A list of things to do before you die. Comes from the term "kicked the bucket."

Well, this was a great year because we completed a number of items on our bucket lists and now are more ready to die than ever! Here is our progress toward death.

TREVOR (age 12)

  • Joined Swim Team
  • Entered Middle School
  • Became a Deacon at church

CHELSEA (age 19)

  • Established residency in Utah so her parents don't have to pay out-of-state tuition
  • Sent her boyfriend to the Philippines on an LDS Mission
  • Sang in visiting choir at Yale U.


  • Mourned the passing of her cat
  • Got married (finally) and moved out
  • Got a dog

RYAN (Age 26)

  • Got engaged (finally)
  • Replaced his 20-year-old car with a 10-year-old car
  • Paid too much for Chemical Engineering books

STAN (Age 29)

  • Lost a Job
  • Moved back in with parents (yes, we are dying now)
  • Got a Job

JANET (Age **)

  • Saw the Grand Canyon
  • Remodeled her piano studio (our living room)
  • Daydreamed about a new piano

CALVIN (Age **+2)

  • Got an iPhone
  • Lost 25 lbs (and kept it off for a week!)
  • Reached level 80 in Warcraft

Life (or death) just does not get any better than this!

We love and miss you all!

David Calvin, Janet, Stan, Ryan & Jennifer, Brooke & Scott, Chelsea, and Trevor
