Annual Family Christmas Letter

Wow, hard to believe we've blown through another year! The French family has been challenged but blessed in 2013. In October, Lew failed the Reader’s Digest Crossword Puzzle Certification when he blanked and couldn't come up with a five letter word for “Name of current US President.” We’re still very proud of him, though, and look forward to the day he doesn't involuntarily shout, “Term for abstract expressionism!” or, “Beans named for Peru’s capital!” at the dinner table.

Our oldest, Vic, moved to Nashville this summer and started incorporating a musical saw into his beats. Surprisingly chill. Unfortunately, he has trouble getting it into club gigs because it’s mistaken for a weapon. His girlfriend, Claire, is a very talented painter. She recently scored a commission to paint Elvis playing strip poker with Miley Cyrus, Brad Paisley, and Amy Grant for the Country Music Hall of Fame.
