We celebrated Maria's birthday on January 28th at our house. She's now 12 years old which is odd because I'm not any older at all. In attendance, Nana, Grandma and Grandpa, Aunt Becky, Jessica, Aunt Vicky, Uncle Nick, Lauren, Katie, Aunt Joanne, Uncle Ken, Mom and Dad and Natalie. We had a wonderful dinner topped off with the cheesecake you see hear and Aunt Joanne's Lemon Pie. Thank you all for a wonderful day!

Great Time in Jackson, WY

Dawn and I had a great time in Jackson last week. We had met some new friends and had a few great days skiing in the Teton range. It is the best ski area I have ever skied! Vince, you have to go there.We had a bit of trouble getting home. Denver had snow and our flight into Denver was delayed, therefore our fly out of Denver was delayed and we missed our connection to State College. We ended up getting a late flight back east to Philly (arriving at 2:30 am EST) and driving to State College (arriving at 6:30 am EST). Pretty crazy, but we made it. The first picture is Dawn and I at the almost top of the mountain. You can see the plains below the clouds. The next shot is us relaxing in the sun after skiing. The third shot is the Reese's house. Talk to you all soon. We are off to NJ this weekend to see Brett and Jen (they are 11 weeks pregnant!).

Love, Michael.

Hope everyone is fine

Mom and I visit with Michael and Dawn and had a very nice dinner at Fugi-Jade in State College this past week end(Jan6-7). We had taken all side roads, country two laners, on the way to SC and visited Plumville,Punxy,Rural Valley,Tyrone, Phillipsburg and the like. Got home safely on Sunday about 4PM.
Looks like our walls in the bathroom and foyer are in for treat! New wall paper is in their future.
A lunch party for Little Nana is in the works for Saturday Jan 13th at 229 Beechwood. She will be 97 on the 15th of January. She is doing fine and will need a new hearing aid that will be forthcoming on Friday Jan 12th with at least an examination with Avada in Butler.
All our grandchildren are beautiful and way above average in talent and intelligence!
The fishing could be better! Love you all
