this used to be our family blog entitled "British Royalty versus the Ramsey Clan" (since i'm descended from King Edward II and jon is a descendant from the Ramsay Clan) but since jon never participated, and my mom is the only one who reads this, it is now a format for writing her letters. I mean, for writing you letters, mom.

Oh, let's see...

So much has gone on lately...

Susan painted some flower cards and sent one to her mom (post mom's total knee-replacement surgery) and the others to the ladies she visit-teaches at church:

Raisa, our niece, took some photos shown below at Susan's brother Steve's 1st annual Heathfest (music fest and homemade beer tasting) at his home in Riverfalls, WI this past September:

Sue sang harmony on a couple songs with Jon after he dragged her up there:

Raisa with Luci:

Congratulations to Raisa for managing to snap a candid photo of Jon:

In other newz...

We moved to an apartment and it is lovely.
Susan is a busy bee working on finishing her "thesis" for her Masters, with the help of Courtney's genius tip of "just do 15 minutes each day" and it is working (which is a godsend after a year of feeling no motivation to finish it).
Jon is awesome and always right.
Margie wears a no-bark shock collar while the humans are away, and it finally worked after a whole day of it not working - whew!
and the cats are weird and meaowy (two of which will find new homes soon, as the apartment only allows two pets total).

that's our update!

peace out.
