Merry Christmas to Everyone!
When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for our family to divulge to friends, the happenings of yet another year, and to inquire of the well being of those we have not seen for some time. A decent respect for the sanity of mankind requires that this correspondence not bore the readers with redundant details.
We hold these truths to be self evident that all our family is created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain unconquerable desires, among these are chocolate, pizza and the pursuit of an extra hour of sleep.
The following is a recollection of various happenings, etc. for our family in 2009:
Most exciting news: the birth of Oakley Paige to the proud parents of Gordon and
Kelsey on October 3rd.
Most troubling news: the new President that got put into office
Favorite Holiday: Thanksgiving
Family’s favorite meal: homemade pizza with homemade soda
Favorite getaway: day at Camp Swatara
Best Deal: the purchase of Solomon’s "96 dodge pickup
Most thankful for: the freedom we enjoy in Christ and the liberties we enjoy

For the conclusion of this correspondence, we trust with a firm reliance on divine Providence your well being and protection throughout another year and pledge to all our love, thoughts, and sacred honor. (Hee Hee!! You can tell Dave has been studying the Declaration of Independence, can’t you?)
May the Lord’s blessings fall on each of you! Dave, Brenda & boys
Until next time...........
