It’s been SO long since our last post! One of my resolutions is to stop being such a lazy blogger!
What a wonderful past three weeks we’ve had. To start, Steve successfully finished his finals. CONGRATULATIONS STEVE!!
Shortly after finals Steve came down with a vicious case of the stomach flu, which prevented him from joining Frankie and I on our flight to New Jersey for the holidays. He managed to make it through a flight the next day and we drove up to Wyckoff, where my parents quickly quarantined him in my sister’s room. We had a very merry Christmas in Wyckoff, and drove down to visit Steve’s parents in Holmdel shortly after. And…it snowed!! 3 FEET! New Years Eve was spent with the McGuckin’s followed by a beautiful day at the beach in Long Branch with their adorable pup “Bella.” I forgot how much I missed the Atlantic.
Overall it was a great week. Lots of family and some good friends finally met “little” Frankie, who is now 15 pounds, and 25 inches long…and at only 10 weeks old! Also, as of Sunday, Francis Perry McGuckin is now a little Christian boy! He was baptized by my dear uncle, Msgr. Liddy. His Godparents are my brother-in-law Bill and little sister Marie.
Yesterday we accomplished a 16 hour drive from New Jersey all the way down to Jacksonville Florida…our first family road trip! Today we made it back to sunny Naples…and its great to be home. Hope you enjoy the new photos…Happy New Year!
