2016 was a wonderful year for our family; it was a year full of blessings, opportunities, and growth.
As we look ahead to Christmas, enjoy this pictorial review of our year. Be patient as the slideshow loads – we were too cheap to buy the ad-free version haha.

Blessings to you and Merry Christmas! It was a great year for our family, filled with many blessings. Ironically, two of the highlights happened during the same time while Gail and I were apart: our 15th wedding anniversary and a family trip to the Philippines (more on that later).
Thus, enjoy our 14th annual Christmas letter, complete with personal highlights (and lowlights), what we’re thankful for, what we’re looking forward to next year, and what you can pray for!
- Highlights: receiving my First Communion in May, having Mom as my teacher, swimming in the Philippines, baking with Mom, and getting better at gymnastics

Here is our Canucks Christmas song – it’s a parody of Run DMC’s “Christmas in Hollis” book-ended by “My Favourite Things” from The Sound of Music.
We had a great time working with the Vancouver Canucks on this project. Canucks rookies Ben Hutton and Jake Virtanen join us for this video – they were so awesome to work with and had a lot of fun shooting with us.
Once again, I’m joined by the lovely and talented Marie Hui and Arielle Tuliao. As well, thanks to my brother Jason Imoo for producing the song.

Needless to say, it made for a rather uncomfortable few days.
The remainder of the break was without incident, and we spent much of the time entertaining family and friends at our home or going to gatherings elsewhere. Between Christmas, New Year’s, church functions, birthday parties, family gatherings, meals at restaurants, and more, we always seemed to be around people. Intuitively, it made sense. The holidays are a chance to see people that you might not often see amidst the hustle and bustle of everyday life (work, school, etc).
In between gatherings, Gail and I enjoyed some much-needed quiet time at home with the kids. These quiet times were few and far between, but sacred nonetheless.
And I realized – now more than ever – that I’m interested in quality over quantity. Continue reading Quality over Quantity
