2009 Christmas Letter

Dear Family & Friends,

We sincerely hope this letter finds you in good health and spirits. We’ve had a very busy year in our house!

Charlie started his own company in the spring, and it quickly jumped to the top of the Fortune 500. Everyone from NASA to GE is banging down the door for engineered parts. He completed work on the bathroom. The labor-intensive 3-year project caught the attention of Better Homes and Gardens. Unfortunately, the camera crew got lost on the way to photograph the masterpiece, so you won’t be seeing us gracing the cover of the magazine anytime soon.

Jené still maintains her Pulitzer-Prize winning blog. Although her “Joba in the Bullpen” theory was validated when the Yankees returned the World Series Championship to the Bronx in October, she has elected to stay in market research rather than replace Brian Cashman as the GM. She still acts as a consultant for ESPN through near-weekly random emails to Mike & Mike. She regrettably was not involved with the egging of Brian Kelly’s house, but sure wishes she was! (We all hope that he enjoys watching the Bearcats win the Sugar Bowl from the comfort of his egg-covered house – it’s the closest he’ll ever get to a BCS title)

Baby Charlie is a rising star – he’s top of his class in paste-eating and food-throwing. He consistently leads the pack in number of daily nose wipes. He has been offered early admission to both MIT and Harvard, but we’re still holding out for his Hogwart’s Letter, which we expect to arrive sometime around his 10th birthday. We will start training him for a back-up career in engineering once he masters block stacking. He is currently training for a 5K tricycle marathon and is certainly destined for Mensa.

Einstein was invited to participate as a judge in the Thanksgiving Day Dog Show. He declined their offer, preferring to spend the holiday up to his usual cat tricks which include taking up all the room on the couch, leaving hair on every imaginable surface, and eating the Christmas tree. He and Baby Charlie have become good friends, and his current favorite spot is under the high chair where he waits for scraps of food to fall from above.

All the best from our family to yours,

Charlie, Jené, and Baby Charlie
