This weekend was a good weekend for family. Saturday morning, of course, we spent with Jeff, Nicole, Madison and Nicole's brother Brian. Then Jeff and I went to look at trucks. Then Saturday night Kenneth and I had the folks from the train club over. (More accurately Kenneth, the cats and I had them over.) Sunday Susie and I went on our hike and then that night we talked to Steve Jr. on the phone. Steve and Luci are driving down from Seattle and it will be quite a trip for them. Steve has been working at Boeing for about a month. So, life is going well and we are looking forward to having all the family together for Christmas. That will be a real treat. Oh, and Madison has a vocabulary of about ten words now. That is very cool!
