Merry Christmas to all our friends and family! After a hiatus of a few years, the Aveni family

courtsey of our youngest programmer - Timothy!

She also continues to play clarinet for the middle school band. She spends
lots of her free time playing video games.
Timothy is 9 and is doing very well in 4th grade. He sings in the school choir. His free
John is teaching at Rowan University this year and sings in the choir at our church. Kathy continues
to work for the newborn hearing screening program at the New Jersey
Department of Health and Senior Services, highlighted by an award from the New Jersey
chapter of the March of Dimes.
See our other web pages for photos of all of this yearís trips. The majority of our travel
this year occurred in June, starting with a trip to the University of Virginia for Kathyís
20th college reunion, and we brought the kids for a peek at college life. In mid-June we
traveled to North Carolina to celebrate Johnís Nanaís 90th birthday! We were glad to get
the opportunity to visit since Nana passed away a few weeks later. At the end of June,
we traveled to Florida to visit Johnís parents and also enjoy some tourist locations. Later
in the summer, we visited Kathyís parents in Virginia, and we were able to time this trip when Kathyís
cousin was also in town.
