Did I forget anything?

Oh, yes. Dec 14 in Kenny’s birthday. Festivities include a pineapple upside down cake.

I sent a picture of the little skiff of snow we had on Sunday to our grandson, Van, in South Louisiana. He has requested snow when he comes to visit along with the rest of his family (Mom, Dad, brother, Snider, and new baby sister, June) after Christmas. I would prefer a milder few days with no wind so we can visit the playground equipment at the parks around town without getting frost bite.

Don’t tell Van.

By-the-way, Reese refers to her cousins as Bam, Spider and June.           KSL
