Christmas day was spent at Nonna's. I made her a calendar filled with family photos. With the help of a friend I scanned some old photos to add to the digital photos we had. I felt good about it since I was able to include images from 1940 to the present and they featured all of Nonna's family down to the most recent great grand child. If you ever want to do this, I highly recommend Shutterfly. They have tons of backgrounds to choose from and many templates also. BTW, Nonna loved this gift. Cousins, check it out when you are visiting. There are some oldie but goodies in there.
Here is Nonna going through the months.
The Friday after Christmas, Kent, Jeff and I picked up Nonna and went to Uncle Joe's new house. It is fantastic, and Ruth, as always, cooked up a delicious meal. Plus it was great to see my cousins and their kids. Jeff, Carolyn and I relived old memories as we tried to assemble the latest Lego set. Tad and young Joseph helped out too. The Spongebob Pineapple lasted about 10 minutes before it was crushed by a wondering ball. After fixing it a couple times I gave up. It was assembled for a short while and that it satisfaction enough for me. Although it's fun to build the "set" it is more fun to use the parts and make something else. I will leave that to the youngens.
This is Grant eating a cookie. Isn't he adorable. Wait a minute, I don't remember seeing any cookies there...do I?... hmmmm.
After enjoying a round of disc golf in the beautiful weather on Saturday, Kent and I visited Roy and Tif. Let's just say that I love baby Jade's hair. It sticks straight up no matter what. I think she is going to be a rock star.
After dinner we played wits and wagers (the game of the year, apparently) It is pretty darn fun, so play it, if you have a chance.
Kent was playing around with the black and white mode of the camera. Can you see the hair!
