Flowers from Mom
My mom bought me flowers because it was my fictional character’s birthday? OMG, I created her 24 years ago.
Kari’s Mr. Queasy
Kari brought me her (belated) birthday present and it’s a handmade MR. QUEASY FIGURE!
She did a great job recreating this character!
Christmas Day happened at my mom’s house this year! Sister Patricia, brother-in-law Yusuke, and nephew Ash were staying with Mom. Sister Lindsay and brother-in-law Mike drove in to visit, and I brought friends Victor and Jeaux. Later Lindsay and Mike’s friend Ryan and Mom’s roomie David joined us.
We made cookies, had dinner, and opened gifts!

Family visit with Dad
I got to go see my dad and Connie for our holiday gathering 2018. I rode along with Patricia, Yusuke, and Ash, and we met Lindsay and Mike there. Much fun was had!
My salad: not that adventurous.
Mike’s good with that ice cream.
