Happy Holidays 2013! Whatever you celebrate -- and whether you celebrate or not -- we are so glad to call you family and friends. If this season brings joy, we smile with you. And if this season brings about painful memories, we weep with you.
|OH! We moved this year. All the
way from our long-time home in Warrenville to a
place on the far southeast side of Wheaton.
(1171 Ryson Court, Wheaton, IL 60189)
Butů Kirk's commute got shorter. Cassie's got longer.
|OH! We're not going to be as
newsy this year. More pictures to see. Less
for you to read. Less for us to write.
Butů Nevertheless -- very cool.
|OH! Marianne's still living in
Colorado. She and her boyfriend Colin have
been together for more than a year and they recently
moved in together.
Butů They're still in Colorado and we don't get to see one another very often.
|OH! Matthew's still going to school in
Nashville. He worked again as a performer this
Summer at Six Flags in Gurnee, IL, and is working a
new record for a 2014 release.
Butů Next summer it's far more likely he'll be honing his craft in Nashville.
|OH! Andrew got is license this
year. Then he broke both of his wrists. Then
he performed the next morning with his A Capella
Butů Though the wrists have healed, we still don't have an extra car for him to drive.
|OH! Cassie continues to train sign
language interpreters at Waubonsee Community
College. She's also an active freelance
Butů She took this summer off and visited Marianne in Colorado!
|OH! Kirk's still at St. Paul's UCC in
Downers Grove. He's also been an active
advocate for LGBT equality.
Butů Some of you love that. Others not so much. That makes for interesting holiday conversations.

Way way back? 2004
What are you thinking? 2003
