Back from West Virginia



We had a wonderful two weeks in West Virginia visiting Rusty, Jamie and our newest grandson Donnie. The weather was wonderful - except for one or two rainy days, they live in a charming, big 100 year old house. I'm still not sure just how many rooms are in the house - but it is three stories tall - so there are lots. I do love old houses, and this one is a charmer.

We took driving tours, visited with Jamie's family, went out to eat, and - played with Donnie. He is the most charming little boy. Just 4 1/2 months old, he laughs and smiles all the time - I've never seen such a smiley baby.


Oh pictures - you want pictures? OK Remember - you did ask.



Donnie and Grampy, both wearing their logger shirts . . .









Donnie and Daddy . . .




And of course we had to take some pictures in his Santa suit for their Christmas card.


I had so much fun taking pictures of Donnie. We would pile up outfits and change him into a new outfit after we had taken a lot of pictures. He never complained one bit about all the clothes changing - and was smiling and happy all the time. He is so adorable.

It was hard to leave WV and come home - but we'll go back again, soon I hope, and hopefully they will get to come out for a visit in the summer.

He's a little sweetie - and going to bed a real charmer when he grows up I suspect:)
