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 time.........so, 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 months...........in a nutshell!!! Here are a few pictures from Thanksgiving. The rest of the pictures will follow in the next posting. Enjoy!
