The Aiello family had a great Christmas and are having a happy new year so far. We had time to spend with our family and closest friends on Christmas Eve at our house, and on Christmas Day at Kathleen’s parents’ house.
Peter and Jimmy got a lot of terrific gifts and we’re thankful to our family and friends who gave many of them. We limited the number of gifts given within the family in the hope that Santa would be able to bring us a new HDTV on or just after Christmas. Luckily that happened for us.
This was a tumultuous year for us as a family. We were thrilled to welcome Peter into our lives. None of us will forget Kathleen’s medical situation at the beginning of 2010, and we are all thankful that she has continued to recover her strength and energy.
Kathleen and I both enjoy our jobs immensely. We are fortunate to be doing things that we really enjoy in our professional lives. That makes a huge difference in our quality of life.
I’m still pulling together a Christmas 2009 Photo Set, but I’ve finally posted several good photos of the family and some of our experiences.
We wish all of our family and friends a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukkah, and a Happy New Year. We look forward to seeing you in 2010.
