Hello Friends and Family
Can you believe the holidays are upon us.
What a fast year this has been! Do hope this finds all of you well and hopefully
this has been a good year with lots of happy memories, good health, and some travelling.
Our year has been pretty good. Both of us have
had some health problems, but at present we are doing okay. Have done some
travelling, not too much driving. We did buy a new car and down-sized to a smaller
one - a Buick Regal. We have enjoyed it and it's much easier to park!!
All of our family is doing well. We have
flown to Texas twice and enjoyed our visit with Janice, Dave and Amanda. Amanda is
18 now, a senior, and busy with drill team. We enjoyed seeing their football games
and her team performing. While we were in Texas, Jan and Dave went on a Safari in
South Africa. They had a wonderful time and a great hunt.
Nancy and Bob's boys are both in college.
Daniel graduated from Penn State University last spring and now is in Graduate school at
Penn State. David is in his sophomore year at West Virginia University. Nancy
is still teaching Home Economics in High School.
Patti and Joe's girls are keeping tem very busy
as both Kelly (14) and Jenna (12) are in the Cheerleading and Gymnastics teams. This
keeps them busy with competitions, games, etc. Both girls participate in special
school choirs, which is very enjoyable for us to attend their wonderful
performances. Patti is still very busy with her job and recently she turned 40! We
helped her to celebrate last week. We are so lucky to be near and see our
grandchildren often and be able to participate it their activities.
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with all of us
being here together and had a very blessed and thankful day. We all have so many
blessings to count. We will celebrate Christmas at Patti and Joe's house. All
will be there except Jan and family.
Jim and I keep busy and active around the
house. Of course we don't have the outside work now! Jim always has a project
going and keeps himself very busy in his workshop. I am very active with the
Hospital Auxiliary, church, and many other activities.
We wish you a very Merry Christmas and a
healthy, Happy New Year!
B-Ann & Jim
