The holiday went pretty well. We had dinner at Mom's house (of course she was working her butt off as normal but I think she is masochistic like that.) My brother Michael made it out from L.A. and even gave me a few ideas that I might implement on the Web site in the near future. Grandma and Grandpa Bolton came in from Boulder City as did my sister Michelle, her husband Corey and the twins Connor and Olivia (absolutely amazing kids.) Of course, Dad wouldn't miss out on a buffet styled dinner. Even my aunt Shawna stopped by with her husband Dave and her daughter Sydney. Last but by far not least was my brother Matthew with his new bride Elizabeth. They waited until that night to tell us that... well, looks like I'm going to be an uncle again. I guess you have to call that one amazing honeymoon cruise. Anyhow, as I watched Connor and Olivia (play, giggle and toot on some flutes Mom gave them) I came to the conclusion that my family is extremely lucky and/or blessed to be without the many physical and mental problems that some have. Well, we do have some time to figure out the mental side but I just wish everyone can have a moment like that. Got my pumpkin pie fix sated so I'm extremely chipper.
