If you got a Christmas Card from us, it looked like this. If not, well, here you go.
So here we go, 2010, in summary
It snowed. A lot (for Mebane). Eight inches in one storm was the most snow we'd seen since 2002, and we tried to make the most of it, despite not really having much on the way of snow toys.
Zoe turned 10 (not pictured)
Dave spent two weeks in England for work (also not pictured)
We spent Easter weekend down at the beach on Oak Island. It should've been a little too cold for the kids to swim, but it wasn't.
Zoe runs in two different 5K races. Dave's 16-year old pickup dies (temporarily) Jennifer buys a (relatively) new Honda Pilot. Tristan mini-tours coastal North Carolina. Pig Pickin' 5!
The first Big Saia Family Vacation at Surf City. Tristan tours the south and midwest
The Big Roth Family Vacation to Alaska and Canada
Back to School; 6th grade for Tristan, 5th grade for Zoe
Dave goes back to England for another week
Tristan turns 12. State Fair Time!
Tristan sings with the Triangle Youth Ballet's production of "The Nutcracker", and has a solo with the NCBC at the Duke Christmas concert.
Zoe runs in the Reindeer Romp, coming in 2nd for girls 10 & under, and 3rd for boys and girls 10 and under. She also performs with the award-winning Glenwood Show Choir
Jennifer got to be the Maid of Honor for her best friend Tiffany's wedding.
And then the year took an unpleasant turn that I'm not going to get into here.
So here's to 2011!
Happy New Year from The Traveling Roths.
