We Need Your Help with Family Tree

Yes, thats right, we need your help in collecting information to fill in some of the missing gaps.

Information such as: birth dates, deaths, marriages, divorces,
adoptions, last names of spouses, things of that nature. The new site
allows us to collect and integrate all sorts of information about
relatives or those we remember, such as photos, stories, and all kinds
of personal information. In order to facilitate the collection we have
a genealogical data collection form which you can use to make things a
little easier for you here.

Da Bears Beat the Packers!

Oh man...tonights game against the packers was tense!   The satellite signal wasnt strong for ESPN and so I lost the game off and on but I managed to watch the game throughout.

I really thought the Bears were going to lose when they were down by 11 points.   They weren't playing very well and Kyle Orton needs to learn how to use his eyes...HE STARES DOWN HIS RECEIVERS.

But I digress.   The Bears truly kicked up intensity at the end of the game.   Peterson's horse collar foul almost screwed em but props to the team for blocking that freakin field goal attempt!

Calico 2007

Had an amazing time going to Calico to run with fellow NAXJA members.   We were finishing with Odessa Canyon and Doran by 2:30 and we then hit the Calico Ghost town for a little family fun.    Gianna loves to go offroading because she loves the rocking back n forth.

Here is a video composed by Kevin Hedstrom which really had great music and shows what Calico has to offer:

Christmas Visit

We had a super time visiting family and friends this year for the holidays. Gianna got to meet Great Grandpa Brown, Great Grandma Glasser, and a lot of aunts and uncles in Murphysboro. In Chicago, we took her to meet cousin Fay (Fay has been diagoned with Alzheimer's disease) on Christmas day. and Fay just loved her. Gianna got to see her cousin Sage in Elgin, and stayed up late with Grandma and Grandpa Lee, Cindy and Gary, and baby Connor on New Year's Eve.

I was pleasantly surprised by friend Linda's news that she and husband Greg are expecting identical twins!

Now Josh, Gianna and I are back in the swing of things and back to work. Josh is still with Cnet, and traveled to NYC for a week and a half before Christmas to get training on some new software. He is still active in NAXJ, and just installed the upper control arms I bought him for Christmas. I am now working 2 days a week for Santa Ana College-still teaching Music Arts to seniors at 3 different locations.
Happy New Year!!!!

Cheers,
Love Josh, Nicole and Gianna
