!!!-Grace Can Crawl-!!

Very Exciting …after lots of trying, scooting and ‘kinda crawling’ -Grace is now certified as a real crawling machine! Take a look …and we plan to keep the videos coming!

Broad Palette & Serious Demeanor

In spite of yet more teeth continuing to come in, Grace’s appetite and palette keep growing. Grace will often eat considerable amounts during a sitting, and in the last weeks has really broadened her palette. Some new favorites:

+Beef, as in ground beef and small chunks of assorted steak and such. +Chicken ..as in small chunks of chicken breast.  +Scrambled Eggs, Grace loves these  +Avocado, yep, Graces Loves Avocado. And  cheese continues to be a big favorite, as well as crackers, peas, corn and yogurt.

While still no shortage of silliness, Grace is often very serious.  She also is  very nosy and has to know what everyone is doing …irregardless of if she knows the person and irregardless of where we are.

The Beautiful Sweater That Doris Made

Grace received a beautiful hand-made sweater and hat -Doris made these for Grace and they are beautiful.

We took a few pictures and we’re all sure that there will be plenty of good fun with this sweater forthcoming!

Thank you so very much Doris!!

Monster Towel

Tonight we all ran a few errands (yes, including Costco) ..eventually home for a nice dinner. Then, it was bath time and we broke out the new “Monster Towel” which was a Christmas gift from Kris.  Note the tooth coming out of the hood in a few of the pictures. 🙂

Some good fun and Grace loves the bath and mom and dad must now keep a distance or get wet! A few good pics, be sure to check them out.

Family Christmas

We didn’t do Christmas gift exchange until the evening of Christmas Day. Grandma Jo and Grandpa Phil came down from Oregon, Brian came up from Las Vegas and Grandma Rose and Grandpa Ray came all the way from Reno! Lots of simple food, conversation and of course the family gift exchange.

Nevada City Victorian Christmas

This is a yearly tradition -and a favorite of Kathy’s. Typically we go at night but this year went during the day -although we did stay late enough to catch some of the lights.

It rained on and off but that didn’t dampen our fun …instead it just helped thin the crowds!
