Summer 2014 Update

For Thanksgiving 2013, we re-instituted a long-standing family tradition of having a houseful of people for Thanksgiving! From left to right, there's Dara, Larry, Lisa, Susan, Zara, Anne, and Gaye (who is heartily laughing about something...)

Dan's brother Robin was also with us for Thanksgiving, visiting from his new home in North Carolina -- in this photo, Stryper has just decided to leave his lap...

Robin actually stayed for a couple of days with us, and we took him bowling. Here he watches as someone else bowls, while Allen hides from the camera...

Action shot of Gaye bowling.

Anne talking to her Uncle Robin at the bowling alley.

We also, as part of his Thanksgiving visit, took Robin target shooting at the Eagle Gun Range in Macon. Eagle Gun Range is owned by Hamp Dowling, who is a long-term, enthusiastic supporter of Robin's annual Winter Solstice concerts in Macon! Here Robin shoots our .45 caliber pistol.

Some very good friends of ours have had another baby. Here Gaye gets her "baby fix" by kissing little Jonathan, while also squeezing his big brother Noah.

Dan and Gaye got all dressed up for a date where we went dancing to a live jazz band, in the historic Macon Library Ballroom!

Robin Bullock and Steve Baughmann performing at the Douglass Theatre in December 2013.

Robin and Steve also played with Aaron O'Rourke, a local dulcimerist and mandolinist, who sat in as a guest performer.

We went with several friends to the Robin Bullock/Steve Baughmann concert...from left: Dara, Anne (back row), Zara (front row, with thumbs up), Jane, Laurie, and Gaye.

Here, Allen poses for a rare portrait with his Uncle Robin.

Because our family planned to drive to Washington DC and spend Christmas Day 2013 with Dan's parents, we celebrated our own at-home family traditions on "Virtual Christmas," which for our purposes was Dec 20th (Eve) and 21st (Day). Here Allen and Anne open one present each on "Virtual Christmas Eve."

Anne and Gaye icing (and eating some) Christmas cookies on "Virtual Christmas Eve."

Allen and Anne grudgingly pose with an enthusiastic Gaye, as we all wear our Christmas headgear on "Virtual Christmas Day!"
