Dec-Jan continued........


Several inches of ice and snow can't dissuade real Mainers- or as we 
Say-Mainahs- we don't accowledge most "r's"!!!!!
Thanksgiving was recelebrated a wk after Christmas.....
Our soldiers were home and out comes the redneck deep fryer for 
             the turkey....... With turkey's cooking it !!
                           Fun- yum!!!


                Kids of all ages had fun.....

The side window of my truck.......ice...... Two weeks after 
                 the.........
                           Ice storm.........
     I figured it would be thawed by the time I reached
                        North Carolina.......
        As much as I hated to leave this little guy.......
                     
                     And family ...........
             Florida was calling me......


              It was cold........-20 the last few days I was there...




We packed my truck...... It had rained had all day-freezing
            and the driveway......on a hill...... was a sheet of
          ICE............... ....had my ice grippers on......
    and still went sailing by the truck.......grabbing onto
 the antenna as I went by...... My guy grabbed me....
                  buckled me in and said "go"
                before you fall and break a hip!!!!  Ha.... I was
                              Gone!!!

Waving goodbye........ Saying see ya later.........

                  First stop~~~~~~
 ................... Grand-Clara in Connecticut.........
       they left their Christmas tree up for me.......

So many happy memories around the love of this
              Tree....... My best friend- Claire.......
                 Clara's grandmother in Heaven.....
      Oh the love and laughs we shared.....and 
            Ornaments we made and exchanged....

                   Alanna and Clara........
          She's grown so much....... 7 months.......




     Isn't she beautiful .......... Love her............****

Important note here......the difference in photos between a
7 month old and 3 yr old- still able to get a non blurry shot!!!!
        LOL...........




                  Two teeth......

Hudson River actually..... Edgewater, New Jersey.....
