Reporting from Cascade!

Standard

Sunday Afternoon – made for being lazy!

Youngest grandchild, at the time, celebrated her 2nd birthday on Tuesday the 22nd of September.  The day before her birthday we practiced the art of candle blowing so that on the day of her birthday, with the wonderful cake that her mama made her – chocolate with raspberry cream cheese frosting – Chooch was a pro at blowing out her candles.

We went to Florence, Montana last weekend and got to spend time with our youngest and his family.  Football with oldest grandson, baking with the younger two, yard work, some shop clean-up, great food, home grown tomatoes.  A most wonderful time.

This weekend we invited wonderful friends for dinner on Thursday evening followed by wood splitting/stacking party on Saturday!  Thank you to Hublet’s brother and his two great kids who came and helped!

After cleaning up and piling in the car we drove to Boise to meet our newest grandchild and got to watch him get his first bath!

Baby boy calmed down and seemed to enjoy getting his head washed. He opened his eyes and looked around.

On a different note, I came across this mushroom yesterday morning.  At times I wish so bad that I could figure out if a mushroom is poisonous or not.  Now that I am grown up and like mushrooms it just seems like a handy knowledge to acquire.  What do you think?

Life is full of such great moments, interspersed with some really hard ones, with some just plain smooth sailing in between.  It’s been a great time here in Cascade Country!

  1. I love you Kimmie. I love reading your words. I imagine that we are sitting in the warm sunlight and having tea enjoying that comfortable talk that we share. Maybe one of these weekends could be spent at the Leavitt’s new house so I can soak in some of your decorating finesse. Miss you!
