Kyle turns 24!!!

So here is Kyle - after 24 years he is still the silly guy as always! We had a great time having his requested dinner; Pot roast, mashed potatoes and gravy, corn, rolls and broccoli. Whitney and Kyle were kind enough to bring his own cake - not that we wouldn't have bought one, but they wanted to make a delicious chocolate cake and it certainly was! topped it off with vanilla ice cream. We then divided into two groups and had a great time playing cards. We certainly have a very very competitive family. But that's what makes life interesting!

Brighton High get -together

Here are my friends from High School, can't believe it's been 33 years! They look good don't they - it is great keeping in touch and having an annual dinner. What are friends for - we got together at Lisa Jones house on Saturday, Jan. 24th and she made a terrific dinner. The picture is of Lisa on the right, Dana Rapp, Trish Ishmael, and Kari Brown. We had a pork dish, garlic potatoes and cressant rolls. For desert she made a cherry crumb cake in the crock pot and served vanilla ice cream with it. I didn't know you could use the crock pot like a dutch oven, but that was the recipe she used. We had a great time, exchanged gifts and got the update of the past year in everyone's life. Soon we will be planning our 35 year reunion!

Anna gets her CNA!

When Anna's instructor announced her name she also stated that Anna was the Valeditorian of the class! With 100%.

I'm sure she will miss all her friends.
Here she is with Cierra, Brooke, and Sophie!

Here she is with the instructor of the course - Carol

When another one of her instructors, Kami Peterson, spoke she first told a joke - I think you will like it:

There was this woman waiting at the bus stop and the wind was blowing wildly - a gentleman came up to the woman and said, "ma'am your dress is caught up in the wind you might want to push it back down." The woman looked at him and said " I need both hands to hold my hat on." The man looking embarrassed said " but ma'am your privates are showing." To this the woman replied "whatever you see down there has been around for 85 years, I just bought this hat yesterday!"

So this was the start of the clinical speaker - it was a great day and we should be really PROUD of Anna - way to go!
