I am proud to announce that on Dec. 1st, 2009 at 7:40 PM, a girl, Isabella Rose, was born to Nicki and Christian Matakanski at Greenfield, MA. She is beautiful and weighed in at 8 lbs. 7 oz. measuring 21”. Nicki, Christian, Shawn, Josh and Isabella Rose are eagerly awaiting their first Christmas together. I shall travel to Greenfield early on Christmas Eve to meet Isabellla, to congratulate her mom and dad, and to share in the Seasons’ Greetings.
