My best friend Julie celebrated her 52nd birthday
on January 26th. She has been such a great friend
for so many years and I am truly grateful for her.
We celebrated at Charlie Clark's in Pinetop and
Daryl treated us - thanks Daryl!! I baked her
favorite cake (chocolate cake with white sticky
icing). It was a mess by the time I got it there but
it tasted OK. Here's to many more happy

Well, we did it! All five boys off on missions!
Skippy the baby had his farewell on Dec 28th.
He will serve in Charlotte North Carolina for
the next two years. We had a lunch at the
house afterwards for family and friends.
Thanks to all of you who helped me get it
all ready! We feel so blessed to have had
each of the boys serve full time missions.
Tim to Chile
Bryan to Idaho
Kenny to Spain
Sean to Honduras
and now Skippy - we are so proud of each of you!

On the Friday after Christmas I had my
family dinner party. We had prime rib
and fixings - turned out great! After
dinner we went to the DQ and had
Skip's farewell party. I have given a
DQ party to each young person who
has left from DQ to serve a mission.

We had a wonderful Christmas this year. We had
Ray and Carla and Breann visiting with us which
made it that much more special! Tim & Cara
and kids and Kenny, Leslie & Bucky along with
Sean and Skip were home for Christmas morning.
We had our traditional breakfast of omlettes,
blueberry muffin top muffins, sausages, hash
browns and this year added orange juilius. Many
thanks to Carla and Breann for helping me
put it all together! It was a super day!
A tornado or Christmas morning madness?

We were fortunate to have family from Kentucky
with us this year, so we did our traditional
Christmas Eve mexican food dinner together.
It was so wonderful to have everyone together,
even if our house isn't quite big enough!

The 21st annual DQ Christmas Party was held at
my house on Dec 21st. For those of you former
Dairy Fairies - the party has not changed one bit!
We serve the same food, give the same gifts, and
play the same games all these years! Hey, it works!
Here is a pic of the workers who stayed to
Each year we play the "famous persons" game.
Since Skippy has literally been playing his
entire life, he totally rocks at this game. Once
again the boys beat the girls. Since Skippy
will be on his mission during next years party
we are hoping the girls can make a come back!
If you look closely you can see my picture on the
face of this "Santa's Helper." This was one of
the gifts at the White Elephant gift exchange.
It cracked me up!

from Jo City and Carla from Kentucky. I was
fortunate to have family in town during the
holidays and they all came to the party. It sure
made it that much more fun!
