Dec 26th the whole Skillen Clan got together for a "surprise" party for Gp Bob Skillen. Matt's immediate family also found time for a quick family pic, considering we live in three different places now:Wichita, KS; Manhattan, KS; and Miami, FL. I was a little sleep deprived since I had worked the night before. I got home around 4AM took a quick nap and slept in the car. The great thing about family: the same stories are told each year and at least I find comfort in hearing them. This year a few new ones were added from Gp's time prior to grandkids. It was rumored that Grandma is continuing to hope for Great-grandkids. No luck yet.....
I am a KANSAN who has relocated to the mid-state of Pennsylvania. Being from Kansas I have heard every Kansas joke there is, but for fun:
Toto, I don't think we're in Kansas anymore...and I have the posts to prove it!
I am now a mother to a beautiful baby boy, an encouraging wife to my assistant professor husband, a Registered Nurse, and manage to keep a german shorthair pointer and two cats alive, as well as enjoy the house maintenance of a 90 yr old home.
