Last night Ric and I, once again, had a blessed opportunity to spend the evening ringing in the New Year with our most treasured friends. We started our night out by gathering/praying at Mass to celebrate the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God. Always, a grace! After Mass we traveled to the home of Mark and Lila Wiemann to eat, laugh, and, yes, play Guitar Hero and have our own battle of the bands. Actually, if anyone had been a fly on the wall (or one of our children) they would probably describe it as "Parents Gone Wild" or maybe sign us up as a sideshow for a traveling circus. Either way, we had a blast and kicked some ****!!! Thank you so much Mark & Lila Wiemann (for hosting and continuing our tradition), Dave Hubalik, Jim Roe, Wade & Cathy Woodall, and Matt & Cindy Vandiver. We missed you Mark & Teresa Pond, John & Jennifer H., Hal & Claudia Mayer, and Rae Lynne! All of you are such a blessing and gift to us!
