We started the month of January eating...who would have guessed?! Oops, there went my new years resolution! My sister and I took two of our daughters and our mother to lunch at a favorite little restaurant, The Rusty Lantern; a cozy little place with wonderful food! This is my daughter, making sure Nathan had butter on his homemade bread, yum!
My sweet niece with her cute little son, Owen. I especially love his shirt, it says, "I dig auntie". I'm pretty sure I know who gave it to him! He's adorable!
They have the most wonderful desserts - this is their bread pudding, it's to die for!
Then, we went to Brody's Pinewood Derby. Here he is showing me his car, not very enthusiastically I might add...;0) Brody mostly humors us with things like this, he is really the kind of kid that would rather be home reading a good book, or drawing wonderful pictures of magical scenes. He didn't win, but he did get the award for, "Most Patriotic".
That same night, we celebrated Diana's birthday. As you can see, we didn't have any birthday candles, so we used a real candle - Clara loved it, she was way too excited to hold still for the camera!
Bob's uncles passed away on January 27th, and was buried at the same cemetery as our little granddaughter, Hannah. The snow was so pretty, looked like little diamonds scattered around her headstone. If you look very closely, you can see tiny hand prints under her name...so precious.
Of course we've been having fun with this little sweetheart, I can't resist kissing those cute little cheeks - oh my, they grow up so fast!
A few weeks ago we went with some friends to see the, Bar-J Wranglers. They are a western band, who sound similar to, The Sons of the Pioneers. During the winter months they travel and do shows all around the country. In the summer, they have a live show in, Jackson Hole, Wyoming. It's a fun place to go, you get a chuck-wagon dinner and a show, and it's awesome!
This is a picture of my mother when she was about 18 years old. My nieces went to the retirement center where she lives and put some pictures of her in this display, for her being the, February, resident of the month. She was so beautiful...still is.
While watching the Olympics, I have been crocheting this afghan for my little granddaughter's 8th birthday. It's been really fun, I wasn't sure about the colors, but it is turning out to be very colorful and pretty!
And finally . . . today, I decided to make cookies, and look who is begging! How can I refuse a cute little gray muzzle like that? He loves cookies...or basically anything sweet...or just food in general...especially human food...one was his limit!
Looks like it's time for bed. Night all..
