Kaden Dixon

Kaden was born Nov. 22, 2007, Thanksgiving. He is our 10th grandchild and was born to our son Greg and his wife Sasha. He has two big sisters, Reily and Tatelyn. Don't know his stats yet but he is a beautiful baby boy. Life is wonderful and we have so much for which to be thankful.

What a difference from last year--we got our first appreciable snowfall in October and it came in with a storm. This year it was just gentle snowfall and came on Nov.17. Larry had to fire up the old Dodge and plow us out today. The sun was out for a while today so I snapped a photo taken in back of our house.

Not quilting!

This is our oldest daughter Carla (ok Carla I won't tell anyone how old you are!) working on a theater/stage curtain for the local high school in Valdez. She does a lot of sewing but it is more industrial type sewing for which she gets paid the big bucks. Valdez is right on the ocean so she does a lot of things for yachts and boats, i.e., canvas windows, cushions, curtains, etc. What talent!

Winter Bloom

I bought this plant for $5 at a garage sale a couple of months ago. I took this photo the other day and now it has even more blooms. Isn't it beauitful! We have a little snow on the ground now so seeing something so vibrant and living is rewarding to say the least.

Our foot ball player

This is our 11 year old grandson, Evan, who is an avid sports player--here he is playing foot ball. He also plays baseball. His mother, our daughter, tells me he is into hunting now with his dad.

Posing pheasant

He does not like to hold still often. And the shots are taken through a window. The visitor was around the yard for a few days and we could not resist getting some good photos of him as we have never had pheasant in our yard. Amzing how he blends in sometimes and how beautiful he truly is.
