Joe dug in to the next GT-150 by removing some of the floor and other items. Check out the rebuild at

Dani was inducted into the National Honor Society this month. Great Job!!!

Cathy's brother, Dan, and his wife, Cathy, came in from Arizona for a visit. We picked them up in Milwaukee, had a nice dinner and came home for a fun filled weekend.


We travelled to the Quad Cities by taking the scenic route. Here we are at the Mississippi Pallisades State Park.


The reason for the trip to the Quad Cities was this concert, the IMEA District Orchestra Competition. Dani and Paige both passed this hurdle and will represent Sycamore at the All-State competition in Peoria in January. After the concert, we went to a fun pizza joint before the drive home.

Sunday, the group went to Eggsclusive in Sycamore for a great breakfast.

On Monday, Cathy drove them to Chicago where they had lunch in the Walnut Room in Macy's and then a little shopping and sight seeing.

Our annual trek to Milwaukee was fun, as always. Paige joined us this year. It is always great to hang with our "extended" family.

Black Friday and we are in the malls followed with a dinner at Fuddruckers. Dani and Paige showed off their new Piggly Wiggly sweatshirts.

Then home to decorate the Christmas tree.
