Almost all of her relatives were there except for one nephew and her sister's family in Chicago. It's been a long time since we had so many folks at our house, and it was fun. She seemed to like the scarf I made.
At the last minute, Dick and I decided to spend New Year's at Cannon Beach, OR, which is one of our favorite places to relax. It's such a beautiful spot.
At low tide, you can walk right out to Haystack Rock where puffins nest in the summer.
After New Year's comes Max's birthday on the 4th and Daddy Brent's on the 10th, so we are having a joint celebration next weekend. Here is Max with Uncle Carl; they are great buddies. Max liked the penguin I made for him, and it was a fun and quick project!
Off in Chicago celebrations were happening also. Daniel lost his first tooth, and one of the chickens laid the first egg!
Yes, 2015 is off to a good start in our family. We hope the same for yours!
