Merry Christmas from the Moore’s. It’s been an wonderful year of being with family & friends and traveling. We started the year at the Rose Bowl Parade in Pasadena, California and will end it at Lake Mittry near Yuma, Arizona. In between were travels around Arizona, the drive to Iowa & the midwest where we spend four months with family & Iowa friends, South Dakota & Wyoming, a month in Washington with family and then the trip south through Oregon & Utah. We are now in Arizona near Chuck’s mom & many RV friends.
2010 has been a year of changes for us! We had to say good-bye to my dad but got to welcome two new granddaughters into our family. Dad passes away peacefully July 25th surrounded by his family. He had been suffering from kidney & heart failure but enjoyed life right up to the end. He is missed! Lexi joined Josh & Sarah’s family in February. She is a charming young lady who is a senior in High School taking mostly college courses. Julianna Kate was born to Josh & Sarah July 23. This dark eyed, dark haired miss is our twelfth grandchild. We have enjoyed visiting each of our three sons & daughter-in-laws & grandkids in Ames, Iowa, Lake in the Hills, Illinois and Lynnwood, Washington.

We knew that when we bought our 5th wheel trailer in 2006 that we would have to look at a better built rig some time in the future. February found us moving into our ‘new to us’ Mountain Aire Motorhome that we purchased in Quartzsite, Arizona. We’re very much at home & very happy in our new space.
We feel blessed that we have had lots of time to be with our families and friends, old & new this year. Thank you to each & every one of you for your presence in our lives this year. May God bless you in a special way in 2011. Merry Christmas! Chuck & Jan
