Mudd Family Holiday Travels

The Mudd family went to Long Island for Thanksgiving again this year. We had a great dinner at Grandpa Costello’s house and visited with family. We also spent a night in the city and went to see the play Mary Poppins.

Loren Becomes a Cross-Country Runner!

Loren Cross-Country, Fall 2011

Loren was convinced by her friends to run with the cross-country team - lo and behold, she liked it! She was 2nd in her region meet and got 14th place in the Colorado State meet - not bad for someone who never ran more than a mile before this year!

The Mudd’s in Disney World

We visited Disney World again - staying at the Beach House Resort. Ashley Lucas accompanied us once again and everyone had a good time - especially at Epcot and Main Street USA.

Patti & Doug

Doug n Patti at Disney

Doug and Patti had a busy year, especially Patti with all the changes at Oracle. Doug and Loren were very happy that Patti was working mostly from home. However, Patti did have to participate in a lot of training in San Francisco, Atlanta and Houston. Doug traveled to Sacramento, Chicago and Pittsburgh this year for work. Patti and Doug also visited San Diego for a short vacation in April of 2010.
