The Rosch Family

Christmas List


Travel Plans

  • Abby is leaving for the Fiesta Bowl in Arizona, and Dan is leaving for the Outback Bowl in Tampa, on Thursday, December 28. They will be back after New Year's day.


  • Buffalo Rosches:  We believe we will leave for Columbus on 12/23 & leave for Buffalo on 12/27.


  • Framingham Rosches: We are considering leaving Framingham on the afternoon of the 19th or the morning of the 20th to maximize the time the kids will have together. Either way, we will probably arrive on the 20th. We will plan to stay at least until the 27th or the 28th.  As always, our plans are both weather and Pete dependent.


  • Bill:



Let Beth know your travel plans, and we'll post them here.
