Thanksgiving 2013

We gathered together to ask the Lord's blessing.  The usual suspects were in attendance, as you can see in the holiday photos below.

Hail, hail, the gangs all here! (can you count the ten people in the picture?)

 We give thanks for our many blessings and pray for those family and friends who have had a rough year and continue to struggle with financial and health issues.
For those of you who were not able to join us in the festivities, well... we MISSED you and send our love!!

Visit from Aunt Judy and Uncle Gerry

The Muellers (ironically, from Millersville) traveled two days just to visit with us in sunny Ohio. We had a marvelous time, although it was short and sweet.
 I hosted their visit and would love to have had them stay for weeks rather than days.
The St. Louis Cardinals were playing in the world series and we had some fun evenings cheering them on.  Sadly, they lost.
We all gathered sunday afternoon at Lois and Chris's new home and there was plenty of good food and good times had by all.
They never look any older!

outstanding in their fields!  (pun)
