My sister and her two children:) They live in Vancouver, BC, so I don't get to see them very often. R (left) is 7 and D (right) is 9. I struck gold for both kids this year for Christmas presents: I got R anthologies of Amelia Bedelia and Berenstain Bears. Spoke to my sister last night and R reads a different story to her every night at bedtime:) With D, I bought him The Lightening Thief, and it kept him enthralled during the long airplane ride home. I now know what to get him for his birthday:)
My mom, looking awesome! She's able to eat regular food now, and enjoyed the week with her Canadian-American grandchildren, plus two days with her great-grandchild:) Mom and Dad will celebrate 50 years of marriage next year; plans are in the works.
Miss Alexandria, in her Pooh Bear Thanksgiving dress:) She charmed everyone by her ability to sit up. She can't do it herself just yet, but will sit up if placed in that postion.
My family and I stayed at the hotel with the water park. On Friday, W and D came over to swim; R had a fever and wasn't feeling well. We were soon joined by our 'other sister', K and her two children, M (far left) and A (front with dark shirt). M is 12, A is 8. K is the one who underwent drastic interleukin treatment for melanoma two years ago and beat the cancer. Enjoyed seeing her kids again!
And I'd be remiss if I didn't include a pic of my BIL (center). Also pictured, my SU and daughter. Temps were in the 60's, so after eating, people went outside and enjoyed the nice weather:)
And Now For The Teaser:
Eight of the twelve dozen cookies made yesterday (four are stashed away for teachers). Today I may make Oatmeal-Raisin, since it is the spousal unit's fave.
