Saturday evening my mom had a gathering at her house so we could all visit with Jon & Pam, who drove in from Minnesota. We got to congratulate Pam on her Ph.D. and they shared stories and pictures from their Asia trip. (To see details on their trip & summer click on our link to their blog "EpiGal & the Sandan") It looks like they had a wonderful trip with a lot of sight-seeing, visiting old friends, and interesting travel adventures. Now they are back to start the next part of their lives...Pam is now working as Dr. Pam Lutsey, and Jon is back in school working toward his second degree.
We slept over in GB and had a relaxing morning on Sunday. Then we headed to Matt & Jen's house to celebrate Matt, Chase, & Joeli's birthdays. Great party...the kids all had fun running around together, and the Packers had a great game! It's always nice to have the whole family together for an afternoon!!
Then it was back home to get the girls to bed and crash for the night.

Melanie has been missing from all classes and events that Jen & I have been to since she joined karate...there's been a running joke if she even existed. So, we brought a special bottle of wine that we thought would be fitting for the situation...Sweet Bitch :)
