The factual version
This year Lucy, age 12, played Hooey the Parrot in a theatrical production of Dr. Seuss’s Oh Say Can You Say! Rosie, age 10, built a ukulele and learned to play it. She can’t stop doing back bends. Ann was elected chair of our church council and joined a writer’s circle. While on our second family trip to England, Jon steered us in a rented punt on the River Cam. He did it very badly.
We [honestly do] wish you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
