Merry Christmas and Happy New Year ..........The Leoniks........

Seasons Greetings Everyone

.......Hope this greeting finds you happy and well.  2009 was a tough year for us as my sister Bernadine passed away suddenly and tragically right before the 2008
Christmas Holiday from an aggressive form of cancer.  It feels like we were hit with an atomic bomb and we are still picking up the pieces. 
                                Life goes on and all you can do is roll with the punches.  It is just the way that God designed this experience. 
 So hug your loved ones never know what's around the bend. 

Kate just turned 20 and Kallie just turned 10.

 Kate is majoring in Chemical Engineering at North Carolina State University...Raleigh, NC.   She's doing great in school and really enjoys living in Raleigh, NC.
                This past summer she worked as Chemist Intern at the Cape May County MUA.  She bought her first dog in May....a yellow lab...named "Nala".  
 She's a really nice dog.

 Kallie is in fourth grade.  She's been playing softball, dancing, playing the clarinet and singing in the school choir.

Diane is doing good....she spent a lot time this past summer surfing and is really enjoying it.

Below are some of the highlights of  our year 2009.
