1: Let it SNOW! | Sean wished a little too hard for snow. We were in NY for Christmas and the forecast kept getting better, or worse, depending on your point of view. We got 16 inches of snow and Sean loved it -- helping to shovel and riding the sled Bud got him. The only downside was the storm closed all the NYC airports, so Brendan could not join us.
2: For the 4th year, Doug and Eddie donned the habits and ran the Nun Run. Brendan in the starting line. Sean running around "helping" at the race.
3: 2011 St. Teresa's Nun Run | For the first time, Brendan was able to run the Nun Run instead of just help organize it (although he did that too). He won overall Male Master at this year's Nun Run -- a race like NUN other, shown here with the Running Nuns, Sr. Eddie McBride and Sr. Doug Kurtz. Linda coordinated the race for the fourth and last year.
4: Sean's 8th birthday party with his friends really enjoyed the party at Fun Park where they played laser tag and then bumper boats. Good thing it was such a nice day, because they all got soaked. | Sean's 8th Birthday
6: For Linda's 50th Birthday, she took the kids to see the Trans-Siberian Orchestra's performance of Beethoven's Last Night at the Tallahassee Civic Center. We were amazed at the number of older people there for a rock opera. But then again, maybe they thought it was a "typical" orchestra
