Grandkids and Thanksgiving

Kylie and Paige are such great friends and had a joyous time together
Dan's youngest son, Grant was enjoying the last drops of 7-up!
Our computer whiz kids grandchildren found a place in our hall to sit down and play games together - These grandchildren had two days of just having fun and enjoying each other. We love to watch and listen to their enthusiasm! We had five of our children with us...Amanda & Tyler, Dan & Kristina, Mike & Annette, Val and Don, and Brian and Deb with all their children- a total of 14 children. Wednesday evening we had a spaghetti dinner with Dan's, Amanda's and Brian's families. Next morning we all gathered for French toast, bacon and orange juice. Fortunately, everyone helped with dinner and we had turkey and the works. Tyler did mashed potatoes, Mike did snacks, Val did rolls and everyone pitched in to put it all together. Malcolm and I did the turkey & dressing and the day before pies were made. Great day! Thanks to all of our children who came. We also got a wonderful call from Todd. We are so grateful for all of our children and grandchildren and the joy they bring us. They are doing a great work with their families. How blessed we have been this year. Thanks to our Heavenly Father for all we have and greatly appreciate!!

Our last harvest of the season

We have had such fun and success with our garden this year. This picture is the last of our produce ...squash, cauliflower, peppers and our first mandarin oranges. Everything is so delicious

Planting Trees at School

Malcolm has been working with a committee to plant trees at the elementary school that Kael attends. Malcolm met with a tree foundation in Sacramento and helped make arrangements with the school for planting many trees around the school. They got the classes involved too and had a great adventurel! Amanda went over too and got some pictures. Aren't they cute!

Memories of children and grandchildren

I could not resist sharing this cute Family Cartoon. It reminds me of our children and grandchildren when we were trying to discipline. I spent a bit of time on the phone so this made me chuckle!
