Goodbye to my litte silver!

Oh Dear, What is a blogger to do without pictures......

My little camera gave up the ghost......and on Thanksgiving weekend, all those missed family pictures and fun places we visited in Seattle.
Actually as my #1 grandson, Tylor, called it when he was 3....FAKE Seattle. LOL.... Yes, Bellevue, Bothell was declared to be FAKE Seattle. The Real Seattle has the skyline including the infamous Space Needle. After one Thanksgiving we took my daughter to the amtrak in downtown Seattle, she needed to get back home for work, Tylor looked around the city and saw the Space Needle and declared " Now this is Seattle, that other place is FAKE Seattle."" We all got such a laugh at his declaration.....no one was fooling him!!

Here is my now 14 year old #1 grandchild celebrating #14 with us in August.....he came to have a Sushi dinner.......


We had such a good time eating some very different cuisine!!! Kobe beef cooked on a hot rock! That was fun, and his dessert was a triple presentation of chocolate!!!

Yesterday I received a Christmas picture from the Family in Omaha. I LOVED the picture, and I especially liked that my son and daughter-in-law look, well like they used to before 4 months of bed rest during pregnancy.........no sleep...... lol..... Just one beautiful family. I am prejudice, I totally admit!!!! The boys are 4 months old and Ethan and Jaxon are sleeping 8-9 hours, Hayden wakes up after 5 and goes right back to sleep. How cool is that!!!


I am taking this time without a camera doing my Christmas decorations, sewing up my log cabin quilt, JLW projects and a couple BOM projects that I am determined to keep up with.
We have our neighborhood dinner sunday evening which is always alot of fun. It will be held at the Cricketwood B&B directly across the road from us. Jim and Tracy are so wonderful. We love having them as neighbors. They have an 18 hole frisbee golf course that my DH enjoys challenging Jim on. What a fun game it is, we hear laughing coming from there yard all year long as guests and Jim play along.
Next week I am back up to Seattle to visit with my sister and mom. Mom is delayed until after Christmas to make her trip to Yuma so we will have a few girl days in Fake Seattle and maybe to Seattle too.....

Christmas blessing to all of you......
