December 15, 2007

Jan - It's been an active month. We disconnected our land line phone so will now fully depend on Verizon and our cell phones. Also have an air card for internet access. We had been working with a rural dial up telephone line so we're very happy with that change.

Two days ago we sold the car I had been using to drive to work. Great! One less vehicle, one less license and one less insurance policy!

We've been out Christmas shopping a couple of times this month. Getting to go out during the week and not fight the crowds has been great. I've also gone to my Dad's Heart and Kidney Doctors appointments with my parents. Encouraging news from both.

Six short days until the boys and families arrive for Christmas....really excited!!

November 25, 2007

(Jan) Today we're at our farm in Iowa.

Our first project this morning is creating this Blog site so we can share news and photos with family and friends.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Our house was full of talk, laughter and good food as two of our sons and their families were able to come and stay for a day or two. We all joined my brother and his family and my parents for theThanksgiving Feast at my brother's house We missed having our Seattle based son and family here but are look forward to them being with us in December. We are having a family photo taken on Saturday 12/22 and then we 8 adults, 9 kids-ages 11 through 4 months and one dog will head out to the farm for our family Christmas celebration.

After enjoying every minute of our 100+ nights in our 5th wheel this summer, Chuck and I are looking forward to going to the Arizona area starting in January. We'll get to spend time with Chuck's parents in Yuma and then wander up to Quartsite and where ever else looks interesting. We're definitely hoping to meet lots of fellow travelers and new friends along the way.
