Great Wolf Lodge Christmas

This is our In-Law year for Christmas which means our kids are at their in-law families. 
So we celebrate early...
at Great Wolf Lodge.

Opening presents is always exciting. 

Close fun quarters! 

Sometimes they have to get really close to see the opening.  

Luke sporting his new shirt

That matches all the boys

And the back.  :) 

The Arcade was also a hit. 

A wonderful fun-filled Christmas gathering

My sister Carol

My oldest sister Carol passed away on November 16th. 
 She was only 67 but had FTD, a form of dementia, for 4 years.  

The celebration of her life was on December 3rd in San Diego.

The sisters read her eulogy

Jan, me, Darlene & Adele


Their 11 grandkids lead worship
 plus their daughter Melanie on piano.

Her daughters shared their memories.
Deanna, Cheryl, Melanie 

Rick Yohn gave the message. 
Very good and personal

Paul, her husband of 47 years, got up and spoke too. 
He has served Carol so faithfully these last 4 years.
What a testimony to 'in sickness and in health'

Jon & Deanna closed the service with "The Prayer"  

The Corbett cousins at the funeral.

Thanksgiving supper was at our place on Wednesday. 

Fun to have Moon and his friends join us.  

Good times 

Thursday we spent the day at Bryan & Eraina's and 
Friday and Saturday we spent at the 
Pecan River Farm in Waco.  

We had a fire

Cut grass 

Roasted stuff 

Tried to stay warm! 

Played together. 

Loved the motorcycle 

And the lawn mower 

Spent time at the river, on the new dock 
and in the boat

The dock held a lot of people

Yes, the Dab......

Eraina hauling sticks.  :)

Lucy, Jane & Liv helping with the wood 

Even a little driving range

The motorcycle seldom stopped.

We spent the night in a hotel.  Fun time swimming

Luke driving the tractor

Our tailgating.  

Meals were around the fire.

Even Luke wanted to start the engine

Some work was even done.

And 'Joy' the gecko was captured

And played with .....

..... a lot 

The kid line up  
Luke was unafraid to do his own thing.  :) 

And the 'Dab' on demand

It was a great two days.
