Christmas Eve in St. Louis – 12/24/2022

Nothing like the holidays for pushing you to do the most possible in the least amount of time. Okay, we had a little more time, but I should explain. Corvin was scheduled to take an Amtrak train home from school. Amtrak cancelled the train 5 days in advance due to weather. I’m guessing they don’t … Continue reading “Christmas Eve in St. Louis – 12/24/2022”

September – 2023

Danelle’s parents have been having trouble with their laptops recently. I convinced them to get updated ones. One of the driving reasons was having the same laptop might make it easier to support. If it worked on one, it should always work on the other, right? Here we are setting them up. Hopefully they enjoy … Continue reading “September – 2023”

Birthday Celebration – 9/12/2022

We visited my (Danelle’s) parents today to celebrate mom’s birthday. One of her favorite desserts is angel food cake, so we made sure she didn’t go without!

Christmas in Kansas City – 12/25/2021

We¬† packed up and headed to Kansas City for Christmas this year. We’ve gotten worse at planning, but my parents didn’t mind the last minute surprise.

Thanksgiving At Hannah’s House – 11/25/2021

My sister Hannah purchased her first house this year. We figured the best way to help her celebrate the new house was to invade for a holiday. So without further adieu, we set out to drive to Ottawa Kansas (about an hour south of Kansas City) for Thanksgiving. Of course we called first, but here … Continue reading “Thanksgiving At Hannah’s House – 11/25/2021”
