I finalized our holiday menu today – Roasted Turkey Breast, Gravy, Wild Rice, Chestnut and Cranberry Dressing (wheat-free), Fresh Cranberry Sauce (for Jeanne), Onion-Raisin Conserve (for me – I always try something new and different), Seasoned Fresh Asparagus with Chopped Egg Garnish, Fresh Cauliflower Browned in Garlic Olive Oil, Sweet Potatoes with Cashews, Carrots and Thyme and finally – Cherry Crisp with Vanilla Ice Cream for dessert (wheat-free, also). Grandpapa stopped by Central Market on his way home and emerged after three hours, exhausted. I thought he would be missing the crowds. Oops!

I have saved the best for last. A sweet photo of Gavin:


We had a lovely afternoon visiting with James, Nicole, Jaidyn and Gavin. Jaidyn was a delightful hostess and Gavin was an adorable newborn. Jaidyn took us on a tour of the house upon our arrival and then introduced us to Gavin after waking him up. She seemed to have a nice time also!

Meet Jaidyn:









We will be posting several sets of pictures to our Flickr account after today and we will be sharing more photos, Gavin included, over the next few days!

Please note that we have moved and our new address is

We went Christmas shopping this evening. I was able to reserve a book and two CD’s at Barnes & Noble using their “Pick Me Up” service. One of my reserved items was the new Imogene Heap CD, Ellipse, which was on Tim’s Christmas list. I listened to a few samples of the songs on Amazon and read that Imogene Heap was a member of Frou Frou before deciding to get Grandpapa a CD also. He likes to listen to music at work. Of course, I took a look around once we arrived at the store and I picked up a few other things, also. Surprises for now.

Tomorrow we will be see Gavin. I posted several sets of pictures of Stella to our Flickr account this week (we are new to Flickr) and after tomorrow we will be able to see slideshows of Gavin, also! If you want a link, just let us know.

Last weekend Tyler, Sarah, Stella, Tim and Jeanne were here for their stepbrother’s wedding. We were able to visit with them for a few days and celebrate Stella’s first birthday a little early.

Little Updates Meet Stella

You need to meet Stella to understand Stella; she is a very complex little girl.

Stella is our second youngest grandchild and just one of 13 children under 6 years of age in our immediate, extended family. We will be seeing James, Nicole and Jaidyn to meet our youngest grandchild, Gavin, this weekend. We are quite excited!
