this years edition of the Dailey family xmas newsletter.....

We took a trip down south this summer, stayed at the Heartbreak Hotel down at the end of Lonely Street in Memphis, Tennessee, went to Sun Studio and Graceland and Beale Street, rode the trolley, went on the Haunted Memphis walk & saw the March of the Peabody Ducks. Kevin ate his fill of BBQ while Deb stuck with fried green tomatoes. Katie ran barefoot in the Great Smoky Mountains and fainted at Carnton Plantation. We drove through Arkansas and Kentucky, and stopped in Tupelo, Mississippi at the zoo and a mall (probably Katie's favorite stop on the whole trip!) KJ decided he'd rather stay home and pet sit, Kevin wants to go back and catch a Grizzly's game. I just want a little cabin in the mountains.
KJ ended up working the whole summer at dear old mom's barn. His major has changed from premed/biology to undecided to high school history teacher/possibly asst. coach. He is a junior at Northwest Missouri State University, Maryville.
Katie is captain of the Junior High Academic Team and plays 1st clarinet in band. She is in 8th grade.
Kevin has been at Hy-Vee 10 years, Deb at PSF 17. We celebrated our 29th anniversary with a weekend at Chateau Avalon and a Chiefs game.
Koren & Cody built an island for their kitchen and stained it to match the cabinents. Their 3 cats continue to co-exist uneasily.
Wishing a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and yours.
Kevin, Deb, KJ, & Katie
