Bothilde's First Communion Day!

Father Bauer celebrated mass in our little home chapel. Fr. Miller (our parish priest) concelebrated. In attendence were Grandmary, Friend Deanna, and "Grandpa Ken and Grandma Kathy" We moved the table outside and feasted on roast chicken, mashed potatoes, salad, and bread (with Honey's butter!) And then: Angel cake with berries and Honey's freshly whipped cream....

Christmas Morning

Christmas 2011!

Christmas 2011 was:

snuggling with Grandmim every single morning...

St. Nicholas stuffing a pomegranate at the bottoms of our stockings...

two new dolls with Christmas dresses and outstretched arms! A stone sled ride, a nighttime visit to all the animals and doling out treats in honor of the first Christmas...carols and candles and Papa reading the Christmas story in the horse shed in front of the life-size manger scene...

A tree a glow on Christmas Eve, an Angel of Peace and renewed vows, Lasagna and Christmas in Connecticut...cheesecake with raspberry sauce...

The Annual Christmas Puppet show performance of Cinderella to a house bursting at the seams! Chicken and Lamb soup...Christmas cookies. More Christmas Cookies.

Dancing the Nutcracker on Christmas Eve in the kitchen and living room...
