Happy New Year!

You thought we were late with our holiday cards…here are our photos from January!  Highlights include adults making fools of themselves playing Guesstures at New Year’s, a late Christmas celebration with the Degans in New Jersey, a Caps game, some snow photos (a funny complementary video coming someday), and Frank’s 37th birthday.

Our First BBQ

We were very excited to host our very first BBQ in the new house today!  The new grill arrived on Saturday and was quickly assembled.  A little rain storm half-way through didn’t deter us.
