Grammie Day 3/24/11

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

It still amazes me how much a child can change in one weeks time from 0 to one year!

Ben is just over 2 months old and he has the bluest eyes and follows your face and returns your smiles.

What a beautiful baby boy!

Keeping an eye on Momma   🙂

Then a little snooze.

Mommy delivers an evening snack.

Lovely day.

We have a new grandson!

Benjamin arrived on Tuesday, Jan. 18 along with a bunch of snow!

His Moms had to arrive early at the hospital for his scheduled arrival.

There was quite a bit of snow that day and the boys went out and cleared the drive way.

Tuesday night, Kate, Chris, Ted, Jack, and I took a ride to the hospital to see the new bambino.

On the way we stopped at Jackie’s Galaxy for some splendid food.

I told Chris I thought things went well…. no one spilled his milk. 🙂

Ben was a bit chilly after his birth, so we couldn’t hold him right away.  Kim was keeping him warm.

Auntie was the first (besides Anne and Kim of course!) to hold Ben.  From the looks of it he enjoyed it.

Oh!  There will be lots more to follow.

You can also check Kim’s and Anne’s  site for some excellent snaps of Ben.

Merry Christmas

Thanksgiving 2010

Saturday, November 27th, 2010

Jan, Leah, and Cory invited us to their home for dinner this year.

So we packed up the baby and the old lady and headed north. 🙂

Actually, Kim and Anne packed up the “baby” and we picked up GG. 🙂

It was a pleasant day … no snow! or rain, and the company was delightful.  It had been quite some time since we had seen Emily.  Alex said he and Carol had not seen Jack since GG’s 90th birthday party!  It was nice to get caught up with everyone.

The turkey was especially tasty.  Jan thinks it is “letting it sit for an hour before carving” that lets the molecules ….? something about commingling or something.   LOL

We believed her.  She taught science at Lowell High School.

Someone let Jack take some photos with my camera.  I’ve got to admit, at 3 he takes some pretty good snaps!

Here he has captured his beautiful “Auntie”.

After the main course some of us hopped up and took care of the first round of dishes. (Not me!  I got up when they were nearly done and took photos. 🙂 )

The Patriots were playing Detroit during dinner. 🙁

But the fans were good about dashing to the TV room when there was a lag in the dinner presentations.

Some fans didn’t want to cooperate for the photos!

At last it was time for dessert!  Jack had helped his Moms bake a cranberry raisin pie for GG.  Auntie Jan thought that merritted some praise.

For dessert we were offered apple pie, chocolate cheese cake, cranberry raisin pie, pecan pie, and pumpkin cheese cake.

The Covell-Barretts do love a good dessert. 🙂

It was a great day.  The Turkey did it’s job. 😉

Then it was time to go home.

GG gives Jack a ride on her “red Cadillac”.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
