ok, I need your vote

would you rather do the bowling thing or do something at G'mas like pizza and games and movies? it is a little expensive if you are paying for more than two people, although it is a good deal just a little too close to Christmas. If you will let me know by Friday...I can cancel and not have a penalty!!

Let me know your thoughts....thanks! or if someone else would like to plan it...I think it was Robin's idea to begin with. LOL

Making Memories

Telling what we are thankful for... ...electricity, lower gas prices, Midol, Facebook, and FAMILY of course!
Building graham cracker houses...
Kristen is on the phone asking, "Where is the candy?"
Bundling up to see the lights...
If you look at the right of this picture you can see that this was when we all found each other...
We learned that you are NOT lost, as long as you are with someone you know. ;-)
(Leen, hope you don't mind me using your picture, thanks.)

Jazz Game!

During Thanksgiving some of the "boys" went to the Jazz Game.


Gordon went and loved it!

Karson is ALL about it.

Adam is acting shy, Kim he's soooo loyal to you!

Layne's New Look

It's obvious from his expression that he didn't want me to take the picture.

Some of you have seen Layne's "chin accessory", but when he came home last weekend we noticed that things had become lighter on top too. He said that his friends did it with "a kit from Fred Meyer".

What's the Plan Stan?

Does anyone know what the plans for Thanksgiving are? I believe that last year Angela and Mike said something about them wanting to be over the food? Is that still happening. If someone doesn't find a place then we will be in the basement. So if anyone cares, i think that some of us would like to know what is up!

Here is some porn pictures of yourself for your MAN!

Grandpa is double Angela's age. He was 35 when she was born which makes her **. I didn't want to get in trouble for telling everyone how old she is! He will be 70 on Thursday.

Yesterday we all got together to celebrate. It was fun to see everyone for a minute. Happy Birthday Grandpa, and Ange.
Both blowing out the number 35!

Annette made it with her girls, and little Michael.

It was good to see Clint he has been MIA for awhile. He told us he is now working at FOCUS. Little Kayden kept everyone preocupied. He is a cutie getting so big.

Mikes parents were there with us to help celebrate Ange's birthday.


Grandma has light! For those who didn't get the opportunity to see it yet here it is. I felt it was important enough to be blog worthy. Grandpa did this all by himself for his woman.

YES, you can even see the sky through it. Merv was joking about watching a plane fly over the other day. Grandma said the kids want to sleep under it at Thanksgiving time so they can say they are sleeping under the stars. To me, this would just mean one more window that needed cleaning, that never got it.

Fun Pic!

Grandma looks prayerful.
