We retired from the Army in 1995.  We moved to the Seattle Washington area.  This is were my wife's family is from.  5 of the 6 of her parents children lived here.  There were a lot of cousins. 
Now the family is getting bigger.  The family is scattered.  For the first time in 23 years we are going to go separate ways. Now we're going  to try every other year.  Our house on the odd years.

 This is a tight fit!
 This is what it looks like before we start to eat, below.  We've been holding it at our home since we moved in our current house.  before that we had Thanksgiving between our house, Oma's house or the church.


I had surgery on my right foot.  2 toes were amputated.  It has slowed me down a lot.  I'm up but! I have to stay off my foot.  I have a couple of things to get around.  I can't drive, so I'm at the mercy of my family.. They have helped a lot!  I'm thankful for them!

2016 was the year that Laura & Spencer were married.  They were sealed in the Seattle Temple.  They had their reception at Ady & Kirsten's house.  It was a wonderful day.  The weather was great.

To think, this is not all of the family! it's great when we get together.  Some of the members of the family, with my side also, have left us to the spirit world.  Being at the temple we are promised that our families are forever if we just try to live the Gospel of Christ!
I just love this photo.  This is at Jamie's wedding Reception in our back yard.  Look how young those kids are! This is Aug. of 2007.  There was a time that their were a lot of young kids around.  Just when they grow up, the next generation of kids are getting pretty big.
