Time with Grandma & Grandpa Neitzke

Rich works on Joe's car while Joe and Dad watch. They are trying to make it look less like a cop car....

Lily Su her favorite pair of glasses that are perhaps a decade old and have been through several little girls! :o)

Grandpa Neitzke gets a lesson on playing house with Lily. He was pretty fascinated to find out that her family's car had seat belts in it!

Joe (16), Tim (14) and Lily (6) with their grandparents, Walt and Karen Neitzke

Three generations....My parents, my children, and me.

My parents arrived December 29th and left January 4th. They drove down from Michigan with their two Min Pins, Katie and Luther (although my brother calls him Lucifer which is a more appropriate name for him at times). They were able to make it to one of Joe's basketball games and celebrate New Year's with us. We celebrated Lily's birthday the night before they left so they could be a part of that as well. They put their lives in Joe's hands and let him drive them around. :o) They attended Mass with us on Sunday and had a lively talk with our parish priest, Fr. Jose. We went to Bounce U to let Lily and Tim romp around one day and they were game enough to go and watch them literally bounce off the walls for over an hour. Best of all, my Dad and I reigned supreme with our pairs cribbage record as undefeated! :o)
