Christmas at Jon and Pat's Home -- 2010

This is our second Christmas in our new home (we moved in late January 2009). Since this house sits where our previous home of 31 years resided, there are more than a few Christmas Ghosts haunting the premises (all very nice memories to be sure).

This year we were able to celebrate together with my mother present -- for quite a few years she has stayed in Casey over the holidays (we would drive down for either a pre-Christmas or post-Christmas get together most times). Now that she has moved into an apartment in Wheaton we can spend a lot more time together!

Matt and Holly are preparing to move to Austin Texas (leaving Friday January 7th). Matt has taken a new job with Dell Computers which is based outside Austin. We will miss them being so close by (Roscoe Village, in Chicago). Good luck guys!
