Christmas Eve 2014 in San Antonio

It’s been a long time since our last post, but now that I’m on vacation, I thought I’d update everyone. First of all, Merry Christmas! Here’s a family picture from last night, with Grandma Amy, and brothers and their family:

Adam went back to CMU this past fall, but has decided to move back home and take classes at Washtenaw Community College. He starts in January.

Aaron graduated from high school, and continues to pursue a career in music. We bought his own domain and began hosting, which is the launch point for his media and his blog and his gig schedule. He’s currently taking a class in music production and recording at Soundscape Studios in Royal Oak, MI, and played a gig last Friday night.

In 2013, Arianna launched her business and we got her a domain as well at She and her business partner decided to part business ways, but they are still very close friends. This spring, Arianna bought herself a DSLR, and has gone crazy taking lots of wonderful pictures, some of which you’ve already seen on this blog. We will definitely post more later, but here’s a picture from a birthday party she was asked to photograph:

Cyndi continues to work at CGN Global, and spent most of this year working with the Illinois Department of Transportation. We enjoyed a fun company Christmas Party a few weekends ago in downtown Chicago at the Hard Rock Hotel. She is still teaching J2A at church.

I celebrated my 24th anniversary at Ford, and continue to enjoy playing hockey, music and flying helicopters. I’m now playing bass for church every Sunday. Arianna was gracious enough to lend me her camera for my annual visit to IRCHA, and I will definitely post some of the 1100+ pictures I took for some later post.

That’s it for now. It seems every couple of years I restart my excitement about blogging, and then life happens. Until our next post, we wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year’s!
