Jacob and Tiffany Peugh and their children, Tyler, Collin, Kenden and Jaidyn, and Chip and I visited Liz Steinsiek and her children, Michael and Tonja, and their families Thursday evening.

Harold Cowley, Tracy’s mother, Susan Gatewood, and Will’s parents, Johnny and Cilla Hudson, were there too. We enjoyed a wonderful meal of smoked brisket and all the trimmings, prepared by Will and Tonja. Guests brought side dishes and desserts to share. Following the meal, we had a good time visiting and playing games.
