Christmas in Akron

And so the holiday season begins, with a long drive to Akron. At least we got snow!

Nicole and Holly A little girl who came to Michael's Uncle Jeff's 50th Birthday party. She was absolutely adorable and very excited when we swiped some balloons from the tables to give to her.


We went to visit my grandmother. The visit primarily involved eating and yard work.
Although you can't tell from the picture, there are 20 bags of plant matter behind Michael and my dad.

We built a fence! In two hours! And it hasn't fallen down yet!

Some new car pictures!

We went to Mike's going away party...

We helped me dad clean his office....


Once again the camera travelled and refused to take picture of humans. I did, however, force it to take this picture of Susan that I like quite well.

It was overcast for much of the trip to Cincinnati, and rained for a good bit, but when it stopped raining I noticed this cloud formation. Unfortunately, a larger portion of the sky was not possible to photograph from a moving car.


We got to spend some time with Shawna, Doug and Wilson when we travelled to Ohio for the funeral of Michael's grandmother.

Mang's Going Away Party

Mang moved to Memphis for new job. Despite the fact that I no longer worked with her, I got to sneak into her party anyway.

Michael's Mom and Grandma came to visit. It was the first time Grandma had seen the house. Now she can actually picture what we're talking about when we describe things!
