Look for Cody!!

Happy New Year friends! I wish you a year full of blessings on this first day of January, 2010 and every day as we go forward this year!

When you think of January 1st, do you think of the Tournament of Roses Parade and the Rose Bowl? Well, I’ve never been much of a parade person (with, of course, the exception of Orrville’s 4th of July parade – which is an annual event we cherish in these parts!).

No, I’m not much of a parade person, except when it involves one of my kids. And today, it does! Cody Smucker, a drummer in the Ohio State University Marching Band is in Pasadena this week, marching with the band even as I type, and then, of course, performing at the Rose Bowl, when OSU plays Oregon!

Cody and his brother, Grant, are both drummers in the OSU Marching Band, so look for these terrific kids when you watch the parade and the game! That’s what we are doing on this 1st day of January, 2010!! (Cody is in the top photo and he and Grant are pictured in the second photo.) They are the kids of Eric and Patty Smucker, a very sweet couple who are friends of ours.

You'll recognize Cody this this photo of "our boys" you have seen before. From the left: Jacob, Cody, Matthew and Trent.

Go Bucks! We’re so proud of you, Cody!

p.s. Thank you, Getz Family, for permission to use your photos!

Readers: Sorry, but I was unable to upload the photos of Cody and Grant larger, despite many attempts. Maybe it is because these two were saved from Facebook? I'm not sure....
