Merry Christmas from our house to yours and Happy New Year

I have to share my favorite Christmas card that we received this year.  I showed earlier in the year Howard Berchtold turning 80 and water skiing this summer.  Now I get the Christmas card showing that Howard was not the only one living life to the fullest

When Troy and I are 80 I hope we are still taking pictures like this.  I think if Jean reads this she will probably want to point our she is not 80 yet

May we all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year as I am sure The Berchtolds are in Iowa.  I can hear the party now and I am sure Grandma Jean is passing out the plates and forks and making sure the line moves along and everyone knows where the garbage can is.  She runs a tight ship

May we all live as full of lives as Howard and Jean have and enjoy every moment.  Their card to me summed up what the Holidays are all about.  Thank You Howard and Jean see you in 2012
