Below is Thanksgiving - here are the rest!

It's Been WAY too long!!!

My, oh my, it's been a long time since I've posted....probably because life has been so rich and full I've really not taken the, here's my best shot at that (mostly in pictorial form). Since November when I last posted Ric had his left knee replaced, Thanksgiving (with a great bacce ball tournament), Christmas, Daniel got a new puppy, Lucy, New Year's Day, a visit from Rachel, a visit from the Olshefski's, Daniel's birthday, the baby of 11 turned 50, Valentine's Day, a trip (mini vacation) to Wickenburg with the Ondashes and friends Matt & Cindy Vandiver, Rachel's birthday, my mother, a WASP, receives the Congressional Gold Medal, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Gabrielle's 2nd birthday, all four kids had changes in their jobs in one form or another, 4th of July, & another suprise visit from Rachel! Like I said, a rich and full 8 a nutshell!!! Here are a few pictures from Thanksgiving. The rest of the pictures will follow in the next posting. Enjoy!

Update to Veterans Day

Did a little digging and found these photos of my 4 nephews. Thanks guys for your service!

Peter and Robert Lucier - USMC

Kevin Lissner - USMC as of January, 2010
Antonio Harris - USMC

Honoring My Family this Veterans Day!

Below are pictures of my family (just the last 3 generations - there are generations before and after) that have served/are serving my country. They have selfishly given themselves so that I can FREELY CHOOSE the way I live, the way I raised my children, that I may choose the job I have, the way I worship and the freedom to speak/write my beliefs. Thank you seems so inadequate......but it is said with much love and deep, deep gratitude! Thank you Ralph, Phil, Charley, David, Robert, Peter, Antonio, and Kevin. I love you all!
