May 2023 Report

 We got to visit with this Oceanna girl before they went back to New York for the summer.  She is a sweetheart!  She liked my keto donuts, which you know made my heart happy. And she's an artist for sure.  She later painted her horse "blankets" to keep them warm.

We went to Paunch Creek and left some of Judson's ashes with Clayton's.  It's a beautiful spot.

March 2023

My 67th birthday.  With two of my grandbabies who are so much taller than me now!
with a keto dessert of course
My mom with Annie
More snow for Oceanna!
It was nice enough to sit outside the day that the kids came over for my birthday.  I wish I could say the same for the days since, but it's been cold lately

February Recap

Grandma Peggy at the craft mall.  She sent Bets and Kyle a dragon's eye in their Christmas box. So cute!

I love love this little picture of Bets from way back when.  Thank you to Facebook for memory pop-ups.
She has her learning permit to drive now!

Kyle gives the best hugs.  He absolutely will not stand for a kiss, but he'll hug :)

Isaac and fam at Quartsite

When we were waiting for Betsy to be born, I found this little retro container at Richland where I was taking floral design classes.   I have filled it with flowers for most of Betsy's 15 birthdays since.  This time, it got a little artificial design so it could be out all year. 

He really really wanted this present!
Love love love love love

Christmas in the New Year

 Christmas got postponed because we all took turns getting sick!  We're finally all on the mend and got to spend some time together today.  It was a good Sunday!  And in the next couple weeks, their birthdays 💗

Happy New Year 2023!

 We had some bitterly cold weather a little over a week ago, but it has been getting up into the 50s too! The plants outside are getting ahead of themselves

Christmas 2022

Jennifer sent this pic of their Christmas morning in California.  She surfed in the ocean and Oceanna played in the sand on the beach.  The RV park pool was open too!  I love the pic, the tree, the presents, and the scene out the window of palm trees and mountains and picnic tables.  
Our Christmas here was quiet.  Betsy & Kyle had a combo of strep and covid, so we still have presents to open with them.  Rachel's birthday is coming up quick, Jan 5th, so maybe we'll do a shared Christmas and birthday dinner.
I made a few desserts, these were my favorite.  Sugar cookie bars from Carolyn's All Day I Dream About Food.
Mark bought me a new light ring that has a little remote to take pictures with the phone.  Now that's a handy gizmo!

Seven years keto :)
Mark is on a new medicine for the Waldenstrom's.  Hoping it will work well with few side effects.

That little remote, along with a lot of treats, helped get some sweet pictures of Murphy and Skye.

And oh yes, that cute little Cali girl turned three!
