Knudsen Family Reunion in Pagosa Springs in June.  Hiking, Biking, River Rafting, lots of hanging out with family and lots of fun playing games in the evenings and even some hot tubbing.  There was some fishing and a group who took the Silverton train ride. We stayed at a cool lodge with cabins.  We had lots of great homemade foods and a continental breakfast in the mornings.  Great fun.

We had another very successful garden (broccoli below) and found a banana spider in our kale, like we used to find in Texas.  I also found the same bull snake we have found once every summer for four years.

We rode 12 miles of Slick Rock and 28 miles of “The Whole Enchilada” which started at 12000 feet in the mountains and descended 4000 feet to the Colorado River.  It was some of the most treacherous mountain bike riding I’ve done.  Good times.

The Warren Family Reunion took place during the week of Thanksgiving.  All of our kids and grandkids visited and all Randy’s brothers and sisters.  We started with a family dinner at Mom & Dad Warren’s.  We played lots of games and basketball. Visited Tent Rocks and went to the trampoline gym.  We had our family Turkey Bowl. We ate Pizza, great Mexican food at Gardunos, and of course Turkey Dinner. Plus we had an early family Christmas.  The cherry was when Brittany received her endowments at the Temple.  Lots of fun and tons of laughing.

The day after Christmas we drove to Dallas for Brittany & Jay’s wedding & reception on Saturday.  Thanks to many of our good friends in Texas, and the groom’s family (the Andersons & Greens), the wedding and after wedding lunch and reception turned out great.

So, as you can see, it has been a very busy and blessed year. Two new grandbabies with another on the way to make a total of seven.  Another child married in the Temple and a new son-in-law. Two family reunions and many other family events.  Sheri and Kimberly continue going to CNM (local community college).  Katy is a sophomore in high school.  We are busy with church callings (Sheri as a Sunday School teacher and Randy as a councilor in Young Men’s & Scoutmaster).  We continue to strive to move forward.  We are so grateful for all of our many friends and family and especially for our Savior and our Heavenly Father.  We hope this finds you in good health and good spirits.  Our love to you.

Randy, Sheri, Kimberly, & Katy Warren
