Visit to Brian and Nicole's home

Rolayne and her Curves friends on the occasion of her 600th visit to the workout studio!
Rolayne made Matthew a beautiful, manly quilt for Christmas. He really thinks it's cool!

Rolayne, Kent and Lindsey made a visit to Brian and Nicole's over the Holidays. This is their very cool kitchen table. (Bar stools to come.) Note in these two pictures the new oak flooring Brian is installing. The varied grains, colors and widths of planking make for a rustic and beautiful effect. They should be proud.

A view toward the fireplace family room area with their new black chairs. Their home is looking very classy.

On New Years Eve we had a Pirate Cootie Party with the Allen family. It was lots of fun to have everyone join in on this "high adventure." The championship round came down to Rolayne and Paul. Yes, Rolayne was the champion (embarrasing to win at your own party.)

This is Patsy Castor--a friend that I spend a lot of time with. She made bracelets for us for Christmas. This is Dalene Settle (Patsy's former care taker) and Rolayne and Lindsey showing off our bracelets.

Brian and Nicole came over in the late morning on Christmas. It was fun to have some time with them. We also went to see their house later in the week. Brian has just put in wood floors and it looked great!

Kent enjoyed Christmas--especially because he didn't ever catch the flu bug. It made him have a few more responsibilities, but he did it cheerfully.

It was wonderful to have Lindsey home for Christmas. It was a quiet Christmas morning with just the three of us. But we enjoyed it a lot. We also spend a lot of time with extended Allen family over the next few days.
