Merry Christmas from the Mattingly's!!

No one will be getting a Christmas card from us this year.  I sent cards to Holiday Mail for Heroes.  This will be my way of sending our Christmas greeting to family and friends.

There were lots of additions to our extended family this year, the only one in our immediate family was Apollo - Haven's Husky.  We attended three weddings and I lost count of the number of babies born among our nieces, nephews and cousins. 

Haven finished her first year of college at the University of Kentucky, then decided it would be OK (and less expensive) to be a little closer to home.  She transferred to UNO in Omaha.  We're lovin' that!  She's in her second year, but technically has enough credits for a Junior.  Still working on deciding her major.  She and a friend took a road trip through the Virginia's and Carolina's in May.  I was jealous.

We had some great times in San Diego, and in Lebanon and Muncie, Indiana visiting family. It was so good to see everyone. Thanks for the hospitality to those who put us up!  I also enjoyed a road trip with my sister and her dog to Alliance.  

This was finally Joe's year - he won his flight in the Mayor's Cup.  Won't be golfing again until he is fully recovered from rotator cuff surgery.  I'm sure he's hoping to repeat.  His involvement with the City Singers this year, besides the annual Christmas concert, included their performance at the Chautauqua in late June.  One HOT performance!

Me, my obsession with family history is getting worse, for instance, this blog.  I dream of retirement.

We want to wish everyone a great holiday season.  Loved seeing family and old friends during the year, especially those we don't get to see often.  Looking forward to good times in 2014!
