  Good Looking Family
  A Thanksgiving picture of Danny, Diane, Ben & Julia and looking good.
   
  Ben the Snow Shoveler
  It was snowing yesterday which meant Ben got a good workout shoveling snow.
   
  Julia
  While Julia perfected the art of catching snowflakes on her tongue.
   
  Danny the bowl licker
  Danny's got strep throat so instead of playing outside, he licked Diane's baking bowl clean.
   
  Ben & Diane's Christmas Tree
  Here's Ben & Diane's Christmas tree.
   
  Julia & Danny's Christmas tree
  Julia & Danny decorating their Christmas tree.
   
  Julia's Concert
  Julia playing flute at her school's Holiday musical (she probably sounds something like this).
   
  Blake & Violet Are Going Home
  Bill & Melissa spent a great few days at Mom and Dad's house & enjoyed some fun at Disneyland. Here's Blake and Violet napping on the drive home.
   
   
  December 11, 2013
  EZHot Tub Blues
  Hot Tub Blues #1
  Look at what I discovered last Saturday morning.
   
  Hot Tub Blues #2
  The temperature has been in the teens for about a week now.  I don't know if that had anything to do with this latest round of hot tub leaks or not.
   
  Hot Tub Blues #3
  The bottom line is the hot tub is (again) out of commission until springtime at the earliest (I refuse to work on broken pipes in cold, freezing weather).
   
   
  Scott, Jackson & The Gary Picture
  Scott & Jackson were over to watch the Seahawks game last Sunday and Jackson was confused why my neighbor has a picture of me on his porch.  My answer to Jack, "Because I'm his hero and I like it."  Woo!

  EZTTHQ Thanksgiving
  TTHQ Fire Pit - Burn, Baby Burn
  It was certainly a short but memorable Thanksgiving weekend at TTHQ.  Here we see the fire pit going strong on a beautiful, sunny and pleasantly warm Thanksgiving day with Blake in the background napping in the hammock, while Bill occasionally pulled on the white rope to keep the hammock moving back-and-forth for a blanketed, bundled up, yet shirtless Blake.
   
  Meliisa , Violet & Blake
  Awesome Momma Melissa and her kids.
   
  Blake is Running Wild 1     Blake is Running Wild 2
  I got one question for you Bill..."Whatcha gonna do when Blake runs wild on you?"
   
  MITB Winner Bill
  Bill was the first 'Money In The Bank' winner of the weekend.
   
  MITB View
  A Money-In-The-Bank view of Bill and the pool table.
   
  It's Peanut Butter Jelly Time
  Blake gives a 'thumbs up' to the Ying Yang Twins - Peanut Butter Jelly Time even when he's sleeping on the car ride home.
   
   
 

Why wouldn't you have 'Peanut Butter Jelly With a Baseball Bat?'..."Now sissy walk, sissy walk, sissy walk, sissy walk, sissy walk, sissy walk"...that's you Violet.

  Smile
   
   
  Winning
  Alexis & your dutiful webmaster were the the Seahawks Prediction Challenge winners two weeks ago.

  2013 Boating Log.
  Pre-Entry One: Picked up the boat from Shane & Teresa's house
  May 2, 2013 - Marysville, WA: Gary
  Picked up the boat at Shane & Teresa's.
   
  Entry One: Lake Stevens, WA
  May 4, 2013 - Lake Stevens, WA: Gary & Yvonne on the "official" opening day of boating season.
  Afternoon Sunning & Boating
  Air Temp: 78° / Water Temp: 60°
  Notes: Yvonne worked from home while Gary got the boat ready for it's inaugural launch of the year. We launched around 4pm and docked at Dan & Jenni Kelliher's house for half an hour for a quick "hello".
   
  Entry Two: Lake Stevens, WA
  June 6, 2013 - Lake Stevens, WA: Gary & Bryce on the "official" opening day of boating season.
  Late Afternoon/Early Evening Wake Surfing
  Air Temp: 78° / Water Temp: Did Not Record
  Notes: Gary had 3 wake surf sessions and Bryce had 2 wakesurf sessions.  We picked up Dan Kelliher for Gary's last surf run and gave him a 15 minute break from his landscaping chores. Yvonne & Alexis did not go as they had hair appointments followed by volleyball practice in preparation for the Florida tournament in 2 weeks.
   
  Entry Three: Lake Goodwin, WA
  July 14, 2013 - Lake Goodwin, WA: Gary, Yvonne & Alexis.
  Late Morning / Afternoon Cruising & Wake Surfing.  I surfed behind Shane & Teresa's boat and ended up getting hit in the head with my surfboard.  "If you're not bleeding...you're not trying."  Trailering the boat took 45 minutes due to the comedy of errors of people launching & trailering ahead of us.
  Air Temp: 84° / Water Temp: 77°
  Notes: We launched in Renton at the Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park.  Boat traffic in and around the boat launch was unusually light for a sunny Saturday afternoon.  The parking lot has really tight spaces with little room for wide turns.  NG!
   
  Entry Four: Lake Washington, WA
  July 20, 2013 - Lake Washington, WA: Gary, Yvonne & Sabina.
  Afternoon/Early Evening Lap around Mercer Island with Wake Surfing sessions with Seahawks training facility & with Mt. Rainier backdrops (pictures coming soon)
  Air Temp: 84° / Water Temp: 77°
  Notes: We launched in Renton at the Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park.  Boat traffic in and around the boat launch was unusually light for a sunny Saturday afternoon.  The parking lot has really tight spaces with little room for wide turns.  NG!
   
  Entry Five: Lake Stevens, WA
  August 17, 2013 - Lake Stevens, WA: Gary, Yvonne, Alexis with Ron, Allie & Paige Payseno.
  Wake Surfing with the Payseno's...Woo!!!
  Air Temp: 76° / Water Temp: 76°
  Notes: Mostly overcast skies with some sun breaks. The least crowded August day on the lake I've ever seen even thought the temperature was perfect.
   
  Entry Six: Lake Stevens, WA
  August 18, 2013 - Lake Stevens, WA: Gary & Yvonne,
  Afternoon lunch & cruising.
  Air Temp: 78° / Water Temp: 76°
  Notes: A little windier than usual this afternoon.
   
  Entry Seven: Lake Stevens, WA
  September 1, 2013 - Lake Stevens, WA: Gary, Yvonne, Alexis, Scott (w/ Jenny & Gabby) & Audrey (picked up at Kahlia's dock).
  Afternoon wakesurfing, wakeboarding, lunch, tanning & cruising.
  Air Temp: 80° / Water Temp: 76°
  Notes: After boating, we went to the outlet mall and unsuccessfully found board shorts for me (inspired by Scott), then we ate dinner at Olive Garden with Audrey.
   
  Post-Entry Seven: Dropped the boat off at Shane & Teresa's house
  September 29, 2013 - Marysville, WA: Gary
  Dropped the boat off at Shane & Teresa's house (until next year's boating season)
