Tis (Almost) the Season!

Hello my little neglected blog.  Having been a bit swept up with all things life, I haven’t managed to update for about two months now.  My mom and dad got into a pretty major motorcycle accident at the end of September, which was horrible and scary, but thankfully they are both ok and while there’s still some healing to be done, they are both on the mend.

Dan participated in Tough Mudder at the end of September and managed to complete the course despite an infected wisdom tooth!

Dan and I went to Bigbury when the sun was shining on a Sunday afternoon while we were in Plymouth.

It was a bit chilly, but the beach was out of the wind and there were plenty of more adventurous people out on the sea on paddleboards and surfboards.

    Hi Mandy and Dan ~ was nice to see your post. Hey Dan ~ nice stache. I think it looks good on you. Will be a good Christmas with you home for a bit. I know your mom and dad are looking forward to seeing you. You probably heard Phil had double by-pass surgery. Was a pretty scary time for us and one I do not want to go through again. Has aged me and your Uncle Lee a bit! But he is doing great. He is doing his rehab now. Cannot go to work for 5 more weeks, and then just part time and light duty. The hardest part for him is he can’t lift anything over 5-10 lbs., so that means he can’t lift Parker or Maddie. I told him to count his blessings and he is lucky to be here to see Parker and Maddie. Life is settling down some for us, which is good. I am looking forward to the holidays and getting together with family and friends. Will be a thankful time for me. Take care and see you and Dan for Christmas. Love, Aunt Lynne

    Mandy & Dan,
    Good to hear from you! We had a nice Thanksgiving here – Judy & Family, Debbie & Family,
    My sister & Family, and even your Mom & Dad & the girls. It was nice that they were able to
    come. We’re looking forward to seeing you at Christmas. We are having a little snowstorm
    today; guess we’ll have a White Christmas. Love Ya! Grandma & Grandpa
    p.s. I’ll make sure to have rice pudding for you!

      Hi Grandma and Grandpa!
      We can’t wait to see you at Christmas, I am excited for Dan to see how we celebrate 🙂 I saw that there is a lot of snow now, I think that is making Dan a bit worried, haha, we might need to do a bit of shopping for cold weather gear when we get in. I can’t wait to have my rice pudding this year!
      Mandy and Dan
