Winter Chill Is Here . . . .

On Wednesday morning, we said goodbye to Nikki and Dan and the kids. Besides the sadness, the day was sure cold. From what Nikki told us later, the cold in the morning here in PG was nothing to the cold in Idaho, Montana and North Dakota. We were relieved to hear that they've made it home safely.
For us, standing outside in the cold saying goodbye was only a preview of the cold weather we have experienced in the past two days. The temperature hasn't risen above freezing and the nights were down in the single digits and low teens.
Standing out in the cold to say goodbye, even though it was a beautiful day. . .
At least everyone stayed put for a picture of the family. The kids were cooperative but it has its limitations and they were getting tired and couldn't stand taking one more picture.
Elijah had some of the best expressions and it was just a great time to have them all here. Our home is sure quiet now.
Each of our grandchildren are so dear to us and they all are talented and have their own special uniqueness. Here Gabby lovingly gives Ipo a big hug, which was a pleasent experience for Ipo.
I have more photos to share but this blog page won't accept more.

Hi dad, I am looking at your pictures and getting very excited to come and visit! The boys talk about it all the time, and I think Mark is saving up his money to go skiing...I think he deserves it this year. Luv erin
