The Cast from the Play

Here is a group shot of the cast after they play. They all did a good job. All went to a cast party to celebrate. They boy next to Jessica played her husband Chicago in the play. Really fun play to watch!!! Good job to all of them.

Jessica plays Cecile in "Is He Dead Yet?

Here is Jessica in her High School play "Is He Dead Yet" that we went to. It was really clever and funny; plus she did a fantastic job. Can't wait to see her in musical they will be performing in a few months. All of us were really proud of you. Love Grandma Ginger

Found this sweet picture of Dad playing pool with the boys. He loved playing with everyone and he was such a WINNER. The pictures on the wall behind them are those who lost to Grandpa Great over the years. You can see Grandpa Ken is one of them on the wall. Love and miss Dad. He was the BEST!

Sheri Babe after Cheer Practice

Here is a picture of Sheri Babe who just finished "Varsity" cheer practice today. She is a Junior in High School this year. Go to Grandpa/Uncle John's blog to see Jennifer's and Heather's cheer practice picture. They each have full school workloads but enjoy cheer, choir and theatre as their electives.

Jessica Leaving Play Practice

Jessica is in a school play this week called:
"Is He Dead?" it is a quirky comedy about a Parisian painter who is both deeply in love and deeply in debt. At his friend's suggestion, the painter fakes his own death to drive up the value of his paintings. Disguised as his own twin sister, our painter struggles to conceal his identity from his fiancée just long enough to get them all out of debt. Jessica plays the role of Cecile. She has been attending play practice over the summer and will perform this Friday and Saturday evenings in the school theatre. Can't wait to see it.
I went and picked Jessica up after practice today, along with Heather, Jennifer and Sheri who also had to stay after school because they each had cheer practice.

Oregon/Phoenix Cousin Hikers

Thought this was one cute picture of the "Cousin" hikers who went up the mountain behind Dottie's and Ken's home. No one even looks tuckered out...are they hikers or what? I think everyone has good memories from the reunion in Oregon. Love you all. Aunt Ginger

Heather...Just Tooooo Cute!

One of my favorite hobbies...just ask the grandkids...is taking pictures. Heather came over to help take care of Grandpa John with his sore knee but I had to take a moment
for pics. She is so sweet.

Jennifer and Joshua

We took Jennifer to watch one of Justin's football games. Two cute cousins just hanging out while the game is in progress! Yes...Justin's team won!

John and Ginger

John and I climbed Thumb Butte in Prescott, Arizona. It was so funny because they had benches along the trail; usually I just sit down on a rock to rest. LOL...hey maybe benches are not such a bad idea since we are getting up there in age. "Grin" Jessica was on this hike with us but is the one taking the picture. Thanks Jessica!

Sheri Babe and I finally completed the hardest puzzle in the world! It was of chocolate candy kisses and every piece looked the same. (Actually Sheri did more than I did...she has a keen eye for puzzles "Grin")

Justin Going Up for the Football

Just one of the many times I have watched Justin go up and grab the football and then run it all the way to the end zone for the score. He is like lightning when he has the ball in hand and heading down the field. No one...I mean no one can catch him!


John and I enjoy going to see the plays, programs and sports events the grandkids participate in. Here is Christopher in his school play "Much Ado About Nothing". He also had a lead in the musical "Godspell" earlier in the year. Great job Chris!

Grandkids Christopher, Jessica, Sheri Babe, Nicholas, Jennifer, Heather

This is a picture Tracie gave me for Christmas of the TK kids. As you can see they are lots of fun to be around.

Grandkids Joshua, Emily and Justin

Joshua, Emily and Justin were over visiting and I took this picture. Actually, Joshua turned 15 this day so it was his "Birthday". Yeah Josh! We celebrated the day befor. Aren't they cute?

Ginger with Brandye

I love hiking. Here I am hiking one of the trails in Utah with Brandye; John is taking the picture. Just beautiful country!

One of my favorite things to do is to go to the beach. John and I are in Florida in this picture. I just love hearing the roars of the ocean. We were visiting his mom.
