This is our annual Christmas themed blog entry; this year, we’ve taken several trips and most of them are outlined in entries. Just scroll down and read whatever interests you. One trip that isn’t mentioned (yet) is one we took to Brooklyn, Iowa to visit a family reunion for members of the family of Georgia’s grandmother Georgiana Kreiss/Mitchell. It was one of those surprisingly warm and wonderful meetings with people you never knew before with whom you have more in common than you thought. We combined this with a trip to visit her family in Nebraska, Missouri and Kansas.
Steve has been riding his bicycle a lot – and we even took a trip to Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Illinois specifically so he could ride on rail trails there. He’s also been working on the family history – click here to see if you recognize anyone.

Like many, well be glad to see 2016 in the rear view mirror. We hope that you and your family have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
