Winter 2013

It's been over a year since I posted anything on my blog, but I have to share some pictures with family and friends!  I don't know if I can figure out how to do this because it has been so long!

In October, Major Cammy was deployed to Kuwait where she will be for about 9 - 10 months.  
This picture was taken earlier when we met up with her in Indianapolis for a weekend.

Today I went shopping to buy a dehydrator, an apple slicer/peeler/ corer, and snacks that Cammy likes.  This is a picture of me putting the apples and bananas in the dehydrator to send along with the other snacks to Cammy.  She loves these kinds of snacks.

She is doing fine over there and beating everyone else in the physical fitness tests :)  We really miss her, but she is able to call and talk to us about every week :)

At Thanksgiving time we went out to Chelan and Seattle, Washington to be with Jason and Sarah and the grandsons, Tristan, Wade and Owen, and Kale and Jaspar.  It was a great visit, and a delicious Thanksgiving dinner at Kale and Jaspar's and then on Saturday we celebrated Kale's 31st birthday.  

At Christmas time we went down to South Carolina to spend some time with Garrett and Sarah, Katie dog and Alexis cat, and the chickens :)

Do you notice a difference in Garrett's hair?  It was Wayne's job to give him a haircut soon after we got there.  This picture is halfway through the process :)

The day before we flew out of Jacksonville, FL to go home, we went down to Orlando, to see Scott and Lynette, Ainslee, Todd, Kylie and Chase at a resort in Disney World. The kids were playing games, and we were visiting.  It was short, but sweet!

We drove down in my 2005 Dodge Durango that we sold to Garrett and Sarah, so I had to say good-bye not only to to the kids, but to my Durango :(  That is why we flew home.  But my new 2014 Dodge Durango was waiting at home for me!  

The last time all of us were together was in May when we went to Washington for Chelan convention.  This picture was taken in Seattle at a folk music festival that Kale and Jaspar performed at.  It was a rainy day and most of the performances were outside in the park, but fortunately they got to perform inside.

On New Years Eve we had a small party at our house and we had a lot of fun playing the noun game.  

 Helen and Kenny, Adele, Wayne, Ray and Karen, Joyce and Anders, and Howard and Sharon

When we are at home, a lot of Tuesday nights we have "supper and game night" at our house. We invite quite a few people, but usually we have between 6 - 14.  The young people don't mind hanging out with us old folks as long as I cook them a home cooked meal :)  And I love cooking the dinner and playing games with them.  

The last picture that I will post tonight, is a picture of Mom Lepak.  She is a real sport's fan, and especially the Packers!!  Wayne gave her this rug, so I gave it to her to hold for the picture, but I didn't realize that the rug was upside down until I got home and looked at the picture :)  But the thumbs up was still there for a win that night!
