Christmas 2008


The family gathered at Trudy's & Lex's for a great dinner cooked mostly by Chris Williams - not to be confused with Cris Williams. We went around the room and told what we were thankful for. I, among other things, was thankful for the Catholic Church. I am so grateful that I got my job back.

Power House Trip #2

We had another fun trip to Power House. Brian and Kristynn rode the four wheelers and horses. Doug, Breanna and I went for a trail ride. Angie and Doug cooked fantastic dutch oven dinners. Angie's family went swimming at Downata Hot Springs. Kim and Aaron came up for a few hours and left Ciaran to have fun in the water with his cousins and grandmother. He also enjoyed the fire too much. We also played pounce and speed scrabble. It was so fun. Jay and Jessica got sick so they were unable to come. It is great having a spot of our own that we can go to anytime. It is beautiful and peaceful and fun. I really feel dad there and appreciate all he did to make it a fun spot for the family. I still wish the whole family would go up once in a while. We need some bonding time.

High School Dinner

Went to dinner with some high school girlfriends - some I haven't seen for over 30 years. We had a great time revisiting high school days and being updated on several classmates. We also talked about where we are now and what we are doing. Attending the dinner were Jenine Jones, Jan Moon, Janet Corbridge, Jill Bollingbrook, Sandra Archibald and Anita Kearns. It will be our 40 year reunion this year. Where did the time go. Thanks Jan for getting us together and for organizing the class reunion this fall.

Florida Trip July 19 - 25 2008

The condo was awesome. It was new and so nice. I had a king bed all to myself. The surroundings were so beautiful. Friday we went to Downtown Disney for some last minute shopping and then on to the airport for me. Dianne and Lindsay flew home on Saturday. It was a wonderful trip. Thank you Dianne and Lindsay for inviting me. I had such a great time.

The Everglades

On Thursday we went to the Everglades. This was a beautiful and interesting place. We saw crocodiles in the wild, eagles, exotic birds, mangrove trees, and miles and miles of grasslands growing out of water. We got the the very tip of Florida where we saw the Gulf of Mexico.


Wednesday we spent a fun day at another amusement park called Hollywood. There were lots of fun rides and entertainment. It rained every afternoon and everyone just put on their ponchos and kept right on going. I have never seen it rain so hard. I guess that is why Florida is so green.

Kennedy Space Center

Tuesday we went to Kennedy Space Center. This was the most amazing place. We learned so much about the shuttle and about landing on the moon. The spaceship to the moon was HUGE. It was all so interesting. That night we ate at the wharf on Cocoa Beach and waded in the ocean. Great Day!!


On Tuesday we spent the day at Epcot. It was very fun and interesting.
