Happy Thanksgiving!
We are very fortunate. We have a wonderful son, daughter-in-law, and grandson (shown here at the recent wedding of one of Nick's childhood friends), are healthy, happy, and strong. We have wonderful friends and loving family members. Who could ask for more?

Happy Thanksgiving Day to you and yours, and best wishes for a healthy and prosperous year.

As Promised...

New Pictures of Robby

Halloween was a great excuse to dress up the baby while he's still too little to protest! Here's our little stinker:

I made his skunk costume, using parts of two patterns and a little ingenuity. Isn't he adorable? He'll hate me for this one day, I'm sure...
I sewed most of his dad's clothes when he was little, and had almost forgotten how much I enjoy sewing. Yes, he's sleeping again!

Then I happened onto a post-Halloween sale, and found this little bee suit at 75% off...well, for $2.67 I couldn't resist. Look! His eyes DO open!

Grandpa and I got to keep Robby overnight last weekend and then took him to visit some friends who live about an hour and a half away. Uncle 5Ross and Auntie Joyce enjoyed meeting him, and he was SUCH a good boy. There's sure a lot of preparation and paraphernalia involved in keeping and transporting a baby. We had a wonderful time, and look forward to having him stay with us again soon.

I'm still here, and have been knitting and stuff. Will have more time for that for a little while, as I was just laid off work yesterday...the new-job hunt starts soon.

Yes, Sarah, there are newer pictures of Robby, and I'll be posting them soon, now that I have some time. Check back!
