As a surprise for Drew & Dawn grammie had a little photo shoot on the night of the Powder River Christmas. Grammie had visions of fun and full cooperation. What was Grammie thinking? The end result is pretty cute and if you look carefully you will see that Grammie had to combine two photos to make one good one!!
An old chest made new again with Linda's money (some from us too) Annie
Sloan's wonderful paint and waxes, filled with towels for Ruthie's (Dawn's grandmother) Christmas
present that she wanted as a linen closet (she does not have one) in her bath. Dick also
worked hard to put it back together again. Definitely a group effort.
Belle & Mitch singing in the St. Joe's kindergarten choir at the
beautiful St. John's cathedral in Boise - Heath sang too and
was the winner of the mini iPad for selling the most raffle tickets, good
Grammie (the photographer) took self-portrait on Christmas Day
to send to Aunt Sherry to show her she was wearing her gift necklace
Little kids table Christmas Day - bought the table and linens when 13 year old Ryan
Scott was a baby & this is the first time I have been able to use the Christmas linens as the big boys outgrew before we could be together to use. I can hear Etta James....at last.....
Cupcake tree for the Steel Magnolias group. My dear friend Jerri Stanfield
is the Executive Director of Alzheimer's Idaho and hosts a dinner for the
support group each month and I volunteer to make the dessert each month and this was
for the December meeting

Belle & her Grammie made Thanksgiving cookies on Saturday. She is a natural in the kitchen. This is the first time we have cooked together and I thought as a kindergartener that she would be quickly bored but not so. What a little trooper. We did four cookies with the giant copper cookie cutters and while I was decorating them she frosted ALL of the fall leaf cookies. The cookies went home with Belle for the freezer to come out on Thanksgiving. Having a grandaughter who likes to be in the kitchen is a good thing.

Sorry, it has been awhile since I have posted anything. We left our home in Monument, CO on August 2, 2012 and moved to beautiful Eagle, ID. The top photo is of Belle, Heath & Mitch and the first day of kindergarten this year at St. Joe's in Boise. Big brother Heath had already started first grade. The bottom photo is of coach Dawn with her girls, Belle in the front. Wanted to post first day of school photos from Missouri but alas the day got away before any photos were taken. :(
