A Big Thank You and family gatherings

I want to thank all of you who have supported me with the purchase of my work! This has been wonderful and has now paid for all the paint I just bought. The first check has come in and the work is starting to leave my house.

Thank you...oh, you can also go to my website anytime to check out other work for purchase! And I have easy time installment plans too!

Last weekend we (my husband, Doug, my daughter, Tori, her husband Dave and grandson Jacob and I all went up to our cabin in the Sierra. We cut down our Christmas trees. Jacob went up with Doug and I first for a couple of days and then his parents came up.

So here is daddy Dave with Jacob and the Christmas tree that they found.

And Granpa Doug with Jacob helping to trim a little off of our tree with his mom hovering in the background!

Yesterday we babysat Jacob...or at least I did. I made a great hit as grandmother by buying McDonald's lunch and sitting in front of train tracks for 30 minutes waiting for a train to go by. Well, it went Amtrak with four cars and traveling 60 miles an hour...we barely saw it.

so we sat another 15 minutes and watched a freight train rolling by which was far more satisfying. Of course, we were parked right in front of the red flashing guard lights which went ding-ding-ding-ding which were added to the repertory of new train sounds!

Then after dinner at which time his parents joined us, it was time to help granmommy make Christmas cookies.
so, every good cookie maker knows that the first thing you do after making the dough is to clean up...

And then, with a little help from mom down on the custom work surface on the floor, cookies got stamped down with sugar and then sprinkled for decoration. What a fun evening!

Grandchildren are the best, aren't they? Mr C and I do some really dorky things just to see smiles on their faces. Nice to see your family time. Have a blessed Christmas, Liz!
