Christmas 2018. We got Dad and Mom some face mask and nerf guns to chase each other around the house, LMAO! Judy said, oh no, not in the house!!! As soon as she left the room, Dad jumped up out of that chair like lightening, and shot that nerf gun like a 10 year old. Brad and I laughed so hard.....good times!!
