This has been a most rewarding and very active year for all of us. The main event was the marriage of Jill and Bill in July - it was a beautiful wedding and we are very proud of both of them. It was great to have all the family together for a few days as Karen and Thor went from being "empty nesters" to a full house!

Needless to say, the first half of 1999 was devoted to wedding planning and more than once Jill had to remind her mom that it was her wedding, not Karen's!! 

Many other events and activities filled our year as well. Dale and Pam moved from Washington DC to Austin, Texas at the first of the year so we get to see them more often. Adam is at Texas A&M where he is majoring in Manufacturing Engineering. Jill and Bill are both graduate students at University of Texas in Architecture and Aerospace Engineering, respectively. Karen works for MML doing relocation management. And Thor continues to work for Equilon Technologies (joint venture between Shell and Texaco) to provide environmental support to refineries and chemical plants. 

We all wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!
