Daryl and Mike have birthdays at the end of Feb and 2nd of March, and in the past we have all been known to have been at a casino. This year we went to Harrah’s in North KC.

The 5th of July, we packed up the camper and headed to Spring Lake Campground.
We had our first large party at the new house on July 4th. It turned out great!
I lost my house to a fire on 12/21/12 Friday. It’s pretty bad.
Everyone got out ok. My son was home alone and noticed it in time to get out and call 911. Pretty proud of him.
The craps table actually is one of the few items that made it, sort of. I will have to clean it up and it will smell like smoke for a while. That is the least of my worries.
I am staying in a one bedroom suite with a kitchenette until we move to a rental house next week.
I am planning to rebuild the house.
My insurance is taking good care of me so far.
We had Penny’s family over on Christmas eve this year. We ate Hog Wild BBQ and opened gifts. It went well. We all had a good time. Ping pong was a hit this year. It turns out we have some players in the family!
Steven and Brandi had Chandler’s party a little early this year, and had it at their/Grandma & Grandpa’s house. There were many guests. He had a good time. Read more for some pictures.
This year we had Christmas at our house. Morning and Evening. We had the whole Kansas side of the family over for Christmas BBQ and gift exchange.
We went to see the Kansas City Chiefs play this Sunday, Oct 31st. It was a blast! Lots of people dressed up and enjoying themselves. We were in the nosebleed section, but still could see and hear and really had a good time.
We are so proud of Jeff for making through Middle School. Tonight his class had a promotion ceremony where they are all recognized for passing through to High School.

Penny adopted her a nice new dog. Jax is a Siberian Husky. All white with blue eyes. He was at the Humane Society where Penny has been volunteering . She really likes him and he is a hit with the rest of the family also. He is 1 year old, so there is still a lot of puppy in him.
There are a few pics and a short video in the rest of the story.
Here are several days worth of pictures. We had Christmas with Steven and Chandler on Wednesday, Penny, Clayton and Jeffrey on Christmas morning, Chris and Steven and Brandy, that afternoon. Then Christmas with the whole family at Grandma and Grandpa Van Campen’s house on Sunday.
Penny planned to have a celebration of Clayton’s 50th birthday at the gig on the 19th at Bourbon St. Bar & Grill. I was totally unaware of this plan. They caught me by complete surprise! It was fun. She brought out a cake in the afternoon and revealed it during our first break. Awesome.
She invited several friends out just for the party. It’s nice to know I have so many friends.
Jeff had a concert this October. He did great as usual.
