It was a year of new traditions and stuff we didn't even think about. Weather almost prevented Steve, Joe and I from making it to KS but we did. The weather did stop us from making it to Rochester the day after Christmas. It snowed for 3 days solid in KS and that is UNHEARD of. We had a good time...shared laughs (lots of them), serious chats, tears, anger...well you name it and we experienced it. Would I change a thing? NOPE...oh, church services were cancelled for the 24 and was weird not to go to church for Christmas...but it was what it was!

I was there...the puppy wanted attention!
Joe and Sarah got a kick out of his stocking hat with a poof ball on it!
Dan with his goodyear blimp snow globe! LOL he loved it!
Autumn loved being with gpa...nap time!
the annual pic with the kids and the christmas tree...we were at dans...this was as good as it got!

A visit from Kevin and Kristin

Thursday Kevin and his girlfriend of 2+ months came for a visit! Steve and I had a lot of fun while they were here and it was great to get to know Kristin better. Steve and I had met her in October at a soccer game. She was pretty shy then and Steve and I decided she was very different from any other girl Kev had introduced us to. All the others were pretty outgoing!!!

This trip though...we found out that YEP, she is different...SHE IS AWESOME!!! She has a great sense of humor and loves to give Kevin a little bit of razzing! She and I spent Friday together at the Mall of America! Kristin was soooooooooooooo very excited to go there! Steve and Kev met us out there for dinner at the end of the day.

They left today...drove to Madison, WI to see a good high school friend of Kev's and then on to a suburb of Chicago to spend a few days with Kristin's family.

Here's the cute couple!!!
