|My husband tried his hand at making a Blackberry Cobbler for Josh since |
that is his very favorite thing to eat. Hubby wrapped it up and gave it
to Josh on Christmas (with all his other presents) and sent it home with him.
We ask him later how it was and if it was good.
Josh got this funny look on his face and
said mmmm I'm not sure. I put it in the fridge and forgot about it.
Think I'm going over there with some ice cream and help myself!

|I think the "Kiss Santa" hat works....|
|Josh and the "RazorBack Snuggie" that he gave his Mom|
for Christmas. A couple days before, he ask her if she liked them
and she said "no way"! I had one and hated it so I sold it at our garage sale.
Well she decided she liked this one!
|I found some more picture of my dad's aunt Sarah's family. I don't know what it|
is that makes me love genealogy but I do!
I could and do stay on the genealogy sites most of the day
and just have a jolly good time all by myself. I have seven
notebooks full of family pictures and facts on the Hopper's
and three on the Moore's. One notebook is full of Civil War records
on my G Grandfather Moore. My aunt, Ann Moore Gulick, sent off
for the records and we sure found a wealth of information. Even
found letters my G Grandmother had written about getting his
pension and more letters written by my Grandfather when my
G Grandmother had died. You just never know what you are going
to find. The best thing of all is finding cousins I never knew I had and
becoming friends and even getting to meet a few of them!
|Found these pictures on Ancestry.com of my dad's cousins.|
I love being able to have Ancestry.com on my computer at
home. I waited 2/3 years before I committed to paying
the price but as much as I am on it and as much
information and pictures that I have found, it was worth
it to me.
|Today is my mother's 87th birthday. She is so spry and such a go-getter and |
can do anything she wants to do. Any time I wonder if I can do
something, I think well my mom did it, so I can too. Sometimes she
drives me crazy and I'm sure there are times that I drive her crazy but I
do hope that I can do the things at age 87 that she does. Happy Birthday Mom!
|After all day yesterday and this morning, Josh and his Grampa are|
burning leaves with a lot more to fall. They worked all morning then we
went to lunch at the Gallery and Josh got his favorite Blackberry Cobbler
then it was home to call the burn control and get to work. Job well done!
