If you can remember back to this time last year, you might recall that you didnt receive a holiday letter from us. Im sure you know our excuse his name is Mason, and he keeps us very busy. In case you somehow missed his birth story (or just want to reminisce), you can find it here.
This year was another busy one, filled with fun, family, and friends. We were fortunate to have been able to both visit and be visited by many of those who are dear to us.
We decided to take our vacations early this year, so in February we visited Brians mother and his brother Bill (and his family) who now live in Florida. It turned out to be kind of a Beinlich family reunion, and we saw several of Brians relatives he hadnt seen in many years. It also turned out to be the last time we saw Brians uncle Herb Cooper, who passed away during the summer. Brian says he was probably the most polite gentleman hes ever met a quality sorely missed in these times.
his first birthday on February 25th, along with many friends and his cousins
Sean, Kaitlin, and Christopher (and their parents, of course). A few weeks later he
started swimming lessons with another friend, Abby. Sharon met Abbys mother Cathy
through the La Leche League. They also met Turner and his mother Jenny at swim class.
Theyve formed a playgroup and get together regularly. One of Masons first
words was "ABBY".
