Seasons Greetings to All! We hope this Christmas letter finds you and your families well. It has been a good year for us, with many new adventures. May we share some of them with you…

Spring Break was once again spent at our normal timeshares in Orlando with sister Linda, Mona (and some friends), and some Dines. .

EJ once again used our other week for his last spring break in Ft. Lauderdale....

Spring brought EJ's graduation from Purdue in Electrical Engineering. He did one final EV Grand Prix and had the honor speaking at graduation (to listen/watch, click Here). Two days later, he took off for an extended tour of Europe with two of his best buds seeing 10 countries there.
Meanwhile, Erika took off to the Canary Islands with two of her best buds. She's still in Chicago living downtown in Harbor Point condos - now working at Avant Credit; one of Wall Street Journal's top billion-dollar startups (might be a keeper). Erika continues to spend time at the Columbia Yacht Club.

Katie's continuing to substitute teach in the Zionsville system. She hightails it up to Chicago for time with Erika whenever possible!

In late summer, Evan couldn't talk anyone into going with him, so he went to Cuba for a couple weeks on his own. Just ask, he'd love showing the pics. This year, Evan notched his 11th year as the IT Guy at VS Engineering. He finally gave up helping coach Zionsville’s high school rugby team, but still referee'd and announced other rugby games.

Also in late summer, EJ started his first professional job after college down in Dallas designing/ producing hoverboard scooters for Mark Cuban Companies. We did the U-Haul trip moving all his possessions down there in early November. Long time family buddy Landon quit his Indy job and moved to Dallas with EJ. Interestingly, of the first four weeks in his new job, EJ spent two of them in China.
Meanwhile now, as official empty nesters, Evan decided on a goal of visiting every microbrewery in the Indy area...our current score is 44 with 2 yet to go! We're all looking forward to the grand opening in January-ish of the Dead Lizard Brewery being started in Orlando by long time friends Dell & Donna Dine and their family.
Below is a pictorial of many of the events throughout this last year.
We hope you and your family enjoy the Christmas season and most of all, be sure to enjoy New Year's Eve...Evan's favorite holiday!!
