Our Tree-December 17th

On Saturday we put up our tree. I should say, Jim put up and decorated the tree while I finished up the gift wrapping. As usual the tree is just perfect ( aren't all Christmas trees perfect?).

Alex's Christmas Wish

My sister works at the TV station in Watertown so this year Alex, her grandson, was the Christmas Greeter for their family. What a cutie!!

Light On The Lake & Jennifer and Jeremy & Emily's Trees

 Tonight we went to Syracuse and had supper with Jack and Jennifer at Jennifer's home.  Then we went to Lights On The Lake. After that we all went over to Jeremy and Emily's home to see their tree and decorations. It was a fun night.

Family Get-Together December 11th

Every year at this time we try to have a family get-together at my two sisters homes in Rochester and Sodus. Anne usually has everyone come for Saturday evening supper where Scott cooks his famous Italian Lasagna and Meatballs. Unfortunately this year we had to miss that due to some weather issues. We did make it to Helen and Bob's in Sodus on Sunday where we had a delicious meal of Ham, Turkey and all the fixings.

December 4th-Christmas Decorating

We spent the day putting up the Christmas decorations. We always get a live tree so that will come later in the month-closer to the 25th. The house looks quite nice with all the decorations , even with the ones the kids find annoying like the Teddy Bear who reads " Twas The Night Before Christmas" over and over unless you turn him off. I think he's cute and I bet there will be a little baby girl here next Christmas who will really like him too!!

Kane Mountain-December 1st.


Since we have been having such a beautiful Fall with sun and warm days we decided to take a little road trip with Jack to Kane Mountain in the Adarondacks. I brought my book with me and caught up on my reading while Jack and Jim hiked the mountain. While in the area we passed through Wheelerville and the Town of Morehouse (my maiden name) so we had to stop and take our pictures under the signs. After hiking we found a little out-of-the-way diner for some lunch before heading back home. It was a fun day.


 Today Jim and I hosted Thanksgiving for my family and we had 19 in attendance. Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures that day so I have used some from Jim and Cathy's Thanksgiving at Ohio and some from a dinner my Mom did the Saturday after Thanksgiving. The weather was beautiful and the food plentiful. We had a great time visiting and eating and everyone agreed they were not going home hungry.

Emily's Birthday November 26th

We celebrated Emily's Birthday a little early-November13th -because of Thanksgiving falling so close to her actual Birthday. This was our first Birthday celebration for our new daughter-in-law. She had requested soup and sandwiches for dinner followed by an Ice Cream Sandwich Cake for dessert. Jim made homemade Broccoli Cheese soup which was delicious. The cake was awesome and we all agreed she made a great choice.

Mom's 91st. Birthday-November 10th


Today we all surprised Mom by taking her to the FairGround Inn in Watertown for dinner followed by cake and ice cream at my niece ,Catherine's, apartment. Mom was quite surprised to see all of us and a good time was had by all.
