Hiking Camelback Mountain on Christmas Eve

Mandy planned this hike for us on Christmas Eve. It was a great experience with Mandy and Shawna. It was a bit challenging for me...especially watching Mandy going up like a pro! She left me in the dust...


I should have known I was in over my head
when we came upon this at the beginning of the hike.


Mandy was never even breathing hard...the most
challenging part for her was waiting for me...


Luckily Shawna distracted me at this moment...
I don't care for heights too much and smiling
for the picture took my mind off the view down.


This was my view the whole time.
watching the back of Mandy...and Shawna
(Shawna's taking the pictures)


When we got to the top...this guy was playing
Christmas songs. It was a great feeling at the
top of the mountain.


Aaahhhh...I made it to the top...notice Mandy
and Shawna holding on to me! I didn't want to
get to close to the edge.


We had a 360 degree view of the valley...
beautiful...beautiful!!!

Back To Cincinnati

Our trial in Cleveland went away so I went back to
the Lakehouse and then back to Cincinnati. It was great
to be able to relax, read and spend time with the grandkids
and of course their parents too;-) Jim went back to Arizona
so it was just Jimmy and myself left visiting.

A night out on the town...eating at a great Irish Pub.


The Family on the Riverwalk


Cinci has a beautiful skyline!


Proud mom and beautiful daughter...I look so short
next to Shawna...You can't see her cute HIGH
heels she was wearing!


Kids in Gatlinburg

As Jim and I left Tennessee for a trial in Cleveland,
Ashley, and Chelsea arrived. They were able to go
to Gatlinburg.


Beautiful Girls

Vacation at the Katz's Lakehouse in Tennessee

Once again, we had a great time at Shawna and Pat's
Lakehouse at Lake Norris. It is so beautiful and of
course Shawna is a great hostess and cook!

leaving off the side of the boat...she's very talented...

tubing...what a bunch of posers!!!

Dana Point Mini Vacation

We escaped the Arizona summer for a few days in Dana Point.


Jim is great with posing and taking the picture at the same time.



Jimmy took his friend Ty and they had a great time.
They especially loved room service!


We were also able to have a short visit with Misty,
Brian and the kids.They had been vacationing at
Carlsbad so they came to see us on their way back home.

12th Grandchild


Mandy and Trent welcomed Landon Michael.
As you can see, he is a big, healthy, beautiful boy.

Jimmy as MJ for Halloween

Jimmy had the skinny legs and the moves to pull off the Michael Jackson look for Halloween.

A Day at the Zoo with Grandma

The Zoo is our favorite place to go when the weather is nice. We went for the opening of the Komodo Dragons exhibit. We had a great day. Jimmy was a big help and I'm sure that Mandy enjoyed the break!


Their favorite swing.


Kenzy loves to pose for the pictures!


Carter ...not so much!

A Month at Grandma's

AnnaGrace and Bella came for a whole month this year. They had lots of fun playing with their cousins and our new puppy. Hopefully, we are creating lots of fun memories for them. I'm definitely getting older because I'm TIRED!!! It was great fun though!
Our last day together. Still smiling after a month ...or maybe it's because they know they are going home!?!
