November 25, 2015 Family arrives in Mpls

Dave’s sister, Debbie, had given us some maple syrup made by her neighbor in Wisconsin.  So we made waffles for breakfast.  I don’t remember the last time I used a waffle iron.  they didn’t complain about my mistakes.  We spent some time doing some prep work for Thanksgiving dinner. 

Between 3-6:00, the rest of the family arrived.  That would be my oldest brother, Don, and his wife, Linda, my other sister, Janice, and husband, Jim, niece Heidi, husband Glen and Garrett and Claire.  All of us were able to stay at Jerry’s house.  Another niece, Sherri, husband, Bobby and his son, Ben joined us, but they stayed at a hotel in downtown Mpls. 
Our great niece and nephew love their Uncle Dave

We set up a Bloody Mary bar and opened wine and beer.  The party began!  Jerry made us a potato and sausage soup and leftover chili. We had a fun evening visiting.  And the 2 siblings ended up being the “last ones standing”.

Here is a story that Claire, age 7, wrote about me and Dave
