November 2008

November was another good month.  Tracy and I got our inside and outside Christmas decorations up this month.  Usually we wait until the first of December, but with busy schedules this month needed to put things up sooner.  We had Grandma Flo’s birthday this month.  We (McCoys, Rayers, and Yoders) gave thanks once again together.  Wonderful time when we all can gather and be thankful for all the blessings we were given this year.  Friday after Thanksgiving we had Richard and Bonnie over for our annual get together with my parents.  Spent Saturday on our third annual cookie baking.  Mom, Dad, Tracy, and I all pick at least one cookie we would like to have during Christmas and take the day and bake.  In the evening we go to the Gahanna Holiday of Lights parade.  It is filled with several bands, floats, and horse carriages filled with lights.  Great way to kick off our Christmas season.  I hope you all had a good month and are enjoying the start of Christmas.

Hello Everyone!  October we had a lot of activities going on, definitely a party month.  Started the month with a Silpada party at our house, then went to a Tupperware party, and Lia Sophia party.  Then my girlfriend came up for a weekend visit.  Always great time with Katie.  Had a Halloween party with some neighbors.  We had three birthdays, first big one was Martin’s 1st, my Dad’s, and then Brett’s.  Ended the month with nice Trick-or-Treat evening with probably around 100 kids.
