Our Christmas Letter


Dear Friends,

It is that time of year again to share with you our adventures in this journey we call life. 2007 has been another year of magic and wonder...

Carrie is quite a talker. She continues to amaze the professors at the University with her intuition in foreign languages. It was fun for her to serve as Official Translator for Warren Christopher at the Bosnian-Serbian Peace Talks. She intends to spend this Holiday transcribing War and Peace into Arabic and Cantonese.

Southern Girl is growing in leaps and bounds. When she got her first set of building blocks she seemed quite interested in large buildings. This year she designed her first skyscraper and ground was broken in Hong Kong for the new "S-Girl" Towers. It is great to have a budding architect at home as she made a new addition to the house and a wonderful gazebo for our garden. Martha Stewart will be filming her next show here in April.

Sweet had a very busy year. In between her work as President of the American Cancer Society and Senior Partner of Goldman Sachs, she introduced a line of children's novels and hand made active-wear. She remains occupied with the children and has introduced them to Yoga and power walking this year. We are particularly proud of her as a starting forward representing the United States in the World Cup.

Corrine was immersed with her Graduate School studies, and managed to co-author a paper on Multidimensional Customer Attribute Analysis by Conjoint Survey and accept a Nobel Prize for her discoveries in Quantum Physics. Along the way she took three startups through their IPO. We are proud of her work serving on the Board of Directors of IBM, Coca-Cola, and Walt Disney.

Tramp was also active with the kids teaching Lauren Ballet and helping to lower Carrieā€™s handicap to 5.

We were able to squeeze a little traveling in this year. We started in Aspen, went to Belarus, the Congo, Denmark, Ethiopia, the Falklands, Greenland, Holland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Venezuela, and Zaire. Our trip sailing our new boat around the world was a great experience for the crew, we learned to communicate with Dolphins and discovered a new region of deep water volcanoes.

And Sergeant, our German shepherd, learned to speak. Latin. Other than that, it was a very quiet year. So from our household to yours, all the Blessings of the Season and may your New Year be prosperous. We found out yesterday that we won the $150 Million Powerball Lottery.

Merry Christmas!
The Riverbank Crew
