After snagging some great deals for Bunco at Pier 1 we had a bit of lunch at A & W. (I love their draft rootbeer-always have.) From there it was a hop and a skip to Fred Meyer (they share a parking lot) where I did some banking, purchased some last minute groceries for dinner and then we went our separate ways. I really enjoy our outings!
See you next year!

Other Ty Christmas notes: I was glad that I got his stocking done though he didn't seem too interested in it this year. I also finally finished his "main" Christmas present ( a few days late) --a crib quilt to match the rest of his nursery ensemble. Better late than never!

Jamie, Carynn and Ty had a few errands to do and then they came up to have Christmas Eve dinner with us. Lynette asked to be the chef. Melinda set the table. Michael did pre-dinner clean up. I was called when dinner was on the table; what a wonderful gift! C, J & T arrived just then (perfect timing) and we enjoyed our dinner. We're going to play some games, maybe watch a video or two, read the Christmas Story from the scriptures and then it'll be almost Christmas.
More precious than silver or gold are the blessings (gifts) we enjoy: our lives, our Savior, the gospel of Jesus Christ and especially our family!

At the run-through prior to the event tonight, the lady who organized the event told me that she had a doll that I could hand to Carynn just in case Ty was acting up. We didn't need to use it as Ty played his part perfectly! He was asleep in my arms when Carynn came to get him from me. Jamie came back for the swaddling bands (a blanket). Ty stayed asleep almost on the hay (they did have a real manger there) for the entire time that he was "performing." Carynn would look down at him (Ty) then Jamie would be looking at both of them (Ty and Carynn) and I would look at all of them and I teared up for I felt the Spirit so strong on different levels.
I'm glad that Michael and I were there to participate and enjoy this event.

The Ty Report.....
He's six weeks old...Wow! I could tell a difference in him just in the week we've been away. He's showing more personality all the time. I'm excited that I get to "Ty sit" tonight while Carynn and Jamie attend a ballet for one of their Sunday School students.
I'll write more tomorrow..

This picture was taken on Wednesday, November 28, 2007. My mother was visiting for the week and Carynn and Ty came up so we could do this 4 generation picture which just so happened to be on Ty's 4 week old day!
Doesn't Ty looks adorable in this outfit? I love the little shoes too. He's starting to coo and is getting more alert every day. I think his favorite activities (beyond sleeping) are eating, swinging in his swing, and eating some more.

Ty looked so adorable in his family picture outfit! Lynette, Rachel and Greg had picked it out for him. It tied in beautifully to our color scheme: blue, black or gray with blue jeans. He wore the cutest shoes that my friend Annette had gotten him. His (Ty's) mood alternated between sleepy, hungry and not very happy during the pictures. I think we got some good shots to use for our Christmas cards and to update our large (16x20) family photo.
Since everyone left to go back to their respective homes (Utah, Oroville, Selah and Kirkland) we've settled down a bit. The house is almost back to normal, but now it's time to get decorated for Christmas. I've been working on stockings for Ty and Bret's wife, Laura. I hope to get them done by the end of the week.

Carynn, Jamie, Ty, Jamie's brother, his wife and daughter, my mom, my sister and niece joined Michael, Melinda and I for Thanksgiving. Ty slept through dinner. Carynn had brought the swing over yesterday and he enjoyed sleeping in it while we were enjoying our feast. Right now the young marrieds are taking a break at C & J's while we have Ty duty. I love to Ty sit! When they were going to leave I said, "Leave him here we'll be happy to watch him!" He spent the first hour sleeping in Michael's arms and is now enjoying his dinner in his Great Aunt's arms. We have so much to be thankful for today and everyday. We should always have an attitude of gratitude.

So now that sweet baby Ty is here, I wanted to have a forum for him (and future grandchildren)where I can wax poetic and enthuse about the wonders of grandparenthood!
