End of 2014

Well another year has gone by so very quickly.  This is a year that was a good one most of the time.  Dave and I didn't really travel too much.  We had a few glitches in projects that just didn't happen, but will eventually get done.
Dave finally got his "drop down from the ceiling" 100" Screen, with state of the art projector installed.  We now have our very own movie theater in the house.  Everyone that has seen it, has enjoyed it.  (We are big movie buffs.)

In previous posts I mentioned about our trip to Boston for FIRST, our trip to Michigan to my Uncles house, & Thanksgiving held at our house this year.

In other news,  We did several events with the Challenger Club, the Viper Club & the new Dart Club. We have met new people, caught back up with old friends, I planned a few events. One was a mansion is Newport RI, another to Castle in the Clouds, Another trying to find a lighthouse that did not exist. Attended other events, with those clubs that were just as fun. Dave just asked me where to show up, and Drove whichever car was needed to attend.  :-)

A trip to CA, for Dave to work for the week, and me to run and play..  (had a blast)

Visits from friends & family through out the year.  I think Dave even used the coffee grinder and made real coffee at least 6 times this year, instead of using the espresso machine.

A 4th of July party, with many large fireworks.   (only 1 mishap and no one was seriously injured)  a firework fell over.. (not good for fireworks that shoot 100 feet in the air)  Ears were ringing, but I heard shouts of fun once everything was ok.

I have finally talked my husband into an Alaskan Cruise, but it will have to be planned into our busy lives.  so with in the next few years.  (I had to put that in writing so I don't forget and he can not deny it.  LOL)

We had a "Dippold" Reunion which is from my mothers side of the family.  44 first cousins, we had  2 different reunions, we had a 2nd one this year and extended it to the 2 and 3rd cousins. we had quite a few show up.  It was fun.

We had Christmas in RI with Diane and Mike, Daves sister and brother in law, Mike's Aunt Virginia was also there,  Very Very nice woman.
We had a Christmas in January 2014 in PA with the girls and Braeden (our grandson)

Can anyone believe we are at the end of another year???  I remember when everyone was all up in arms about Y2K,  and now.... Here we are 15 years later.

To all that read this..  I wish the best for all of you in 2015.  May all your dreams and wishes come true.  May all the good outweigh the bad..   *hugs*

Until 2015.   Happy New Year, and here is to another wonderful year.
