Early February

In February we went to a Road Warrior Hockey game.
 A great game!
 Jarin also finished up his intramural basketball games with his class winning the title!  He is in the back (blue jersey).  Blurry picture as I think one of the teachers took this on his cell phone.

Weekend in Bishopville

In January we visited the Hawkins for the weekend.  Juanita and Shannon Mask joined us too, so we had a great weekend.  I had made Jarin a birthday cake, so we took it along and celebrated.

 And the rest of the kids had fun playing Scattergories
 Toward the evening, Sammy took the kids out to practice target shooting
 Justin built a fire (it was cold!)
 The boys shot rifles, shotguns, a pistol and a revolver.

Jarin's 12th birthday

Somehow I lost my password to the blog, so I haven't posted in 8 months, but we'll slowly get back on track!  
This was Jarin's 12th birthday in January.

Old pals

One of the neat things about living where we are is that we've seen a few of my old Seattle buddies over the past 6 months!!  The day after Christmas we were invited to the Lees as Robin and Kevin came down for the holidays.
Robin and I.  If we look tired, we were.  It was about 1 a.m. and we'd just finished our 2nd round of Rook.
 Old buddies...Us with Kevin, Robin and family

Christmas Eve

We were invited to spend Christmas Eve with the DeRuig's.  Marla made a beautiful Yule Log dessert.
 The beautiful table setting
 Even though Jeremy had an ear infection, he was still his usual cute little self.  We enjoyed spending time with them and Marla's family.  A fun evening!

Goodfellows Help

One of the neat things about Scouts, is that we do things to help the community.  This past December, we helped the Goodfellows program for needy people.  We helped with packing food boxes.

 There was a lot of help and it took about 3 hours to pack all the boxes.  The needy families came through the drive area the next morning and got a box with a turkey or ham.

Holiday Misc.

We went downtown for the annual Christmas parade
 It was pretty impressive for this smaller town

 I bought the coolest peppermint bark tray

 Once the chocolate is set, you have these neat bars you can cut up
 Mike and I attended the Fluor Holiday Party.  This was just the shrimp bar.  Pretty impressive!
 We took the boys through the Roper Mountain Holiday Lights.
 Sorry for the blur, it's a drive thru and a place where you can walk a path through them.  A fun evening.
