To our family and friends,

As has been Lana’s and my custom at the end of each passing year, we look back and reflect on the happenings of the past 12 months and look forward with hope to the year ahead.

We are still blessed to be leading “traveling lives”. Lana continues to commute each Monday morning from Seattle down to Orange County and returns home on Thursday evening. She is now in her 26th year in the securities and financial planning business. She has weekend work functions every six weeks or so and I will usually go down to So Cal for the weekend on these occasions. I continue in and enjoy my job as an operations manager for a fire sprinkler systems supplier and fabricator to the trade.

Sprinkled amongst our work travel in 2009 was our annual trip to Spring Training in Phoenix (we love the “get close to the players” atmosphere and $20 box seats), Memorial Day and early December visits to Dallas to spend time with family, and an 8 day July driving and hiking tour in Alaska. We loved this trip. The wildlife, vistas, and calving glaciers were simply awe inspiring. My camera bug wife took over 1,100 pictures! I thought I would need to call all the media outlets when she saw her first moose!

Even with our travels, it is always great to come back to the Seattle area. The Puget Sound, downtown skyline, Olympic and Cascade Mountains are welcoming sites out the airplane window. We continue to find time to enjoy our friendships here and just being at home.

We wish each one of you a blessed 2010!

Steve and Lana
