Pobanz Family Christmas Greeting 2009

Here are some of our favorite pictures from throughout the year!

January - After returning to Switzerland from Utah, Adam celebrated his 11th birthday!

February - Adam and Bret hit the slopes a few times, Adam and Ally both enjoyed sledding after school, and we all took part in celebrating Fastnacht.

March - We enjoyed getting outside and playing in the neighborhood and our whole family ran in the Kerzerslauf (a race in Kerzers, Switzerland).

April - We visited San Marino (one of the world's smallest countries), celebrated Easter in Rimini, and went to Verona in hopes of finding a little Romeo and Juliet romance. We also headed up north to Germany where we spent the day at Playmobil Land. Jolyn also ran the Zürich Marathon in April.

May - The kids gave Jolyn a nice Mother's Day, we went to a Rodger Hodgson (Supertramp) concert in Zürich, and Adam was in a skateboarding competition.

June - June started of bumpy when Ally got a nasty case of the chicken pox, but took a turn for the better when we celebrated Ally's 5th birthday and took a trip to Florence and Pisa.

July - Adam finished up the 5th grade and we had a great time visiting family on our trip to Utah.

August - Ally started Kindergarten and Adam became a 6th grader. We also enjoyed some warm days at the pool.

September - Was all about trying to get back into the swing of school and missing Bret as he was traveling frequently on business.

October - We flew to Chicago where Bret celebrated his 40th birthday. We met Jolyn's mom and dad there and we drove back east and visited all the LDS church history sites. We had lots of fun along the way, making time for pro ball games and Niagara Falls. We returned to Chicago where Jolyn ran the Chicago Marathon (now she has completed all the World Marathon Majors)! We had a scream celebrating Halloween too.

November - We bundled up and celebrated St. Martin's Day.

December - Allyson and Jolyn ran in the Chlaus Lauf (Santa Claus Race), we went to holiday parties, and we left for a Christmas cruise on the Mediterranean Sea.

We hope that you are well and are enjoying the holidays with family and friends.
