Truth Project and Christmas Tree Decorations!

Today  Gary and I went shopping for Christmas Tree decorations.  While we were shopping, it started POURING down snow!  The snow was as big as quarters!  Then today was the Truth Project.  Before hand, Amber, Hannah, Bethany, Christa and I worked together to make an amazing dinner of wedding soup, fruit salad, and quiche.  We had a great day together!

Financial Seminar and to the Carollos

We had an incredible Financial Seminar, thanks to Asaad Faraj, Matt Wandrie, Mike Skupin, and Ed Murray.  Everyone learned a LOT, including me!  I am excited to repeat it again soon.  It was truly a blessing, and I am grateful that these gentlemen volunteered their time and expertise to help others!

Then we went to the Carollos for a night out with the Mallinos and Carollos.  We have been getting together several times a year (taking turn at each other's houses) for over 24 years now! To have friends that stick with you for that long is such a blessing!  Especially putting up with our schedules!

Happy Thanksgiving!

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving at my parents' home!  There aren't any people I'd rather be with than my amazing family.  We were very entertained by Scarlett, Juliette, and Madeline this year!  The food was terrific, but the company was even better!

Turkey Trot!

Gary, me, Jesse, Amber, Gabe, Hannah, Mike, Bethany, Christa, Brandon, Daniel, Emily, my sisters Laurie and Diane, my nieces Shalene and Rachel, and my nephew Michael, and Greg Fisher, Greg Moon, and Jacklyn all went downtown to run the Turkey Trot, a 6.2 mile run before the Parade.  It was SO MUCH FUN!  The weather was the best in four years.  The run was long enough to be challenging, and short enough to stay FUN!
