Sunset in Orangevale

One thing we enjoy about our home here in Orangevale is the beautiful sunsets we get right out our own front door.

The Danish Ladies Reunion!

Susan Nichols came back to California for a visit and the foursome of years ago (Sactown Marriot,Yosemite & Auburn, ) reunited for a trip to Napa, California for some shopping, fine dining and excellent company. I had a great time, in spite of recovering from an illness and enjoyed every minute of being with my friends again. Thanks so much for a wonderful time and for being my friends!

We Love The Le Sueur Family!

Grandma and Grandpa took turns holding baby Violet. Grandpa made the mandatory "DOUGHNUT RUN".
I'll end this post with a wonderful photo of the new, complete Le Sueur family. Well, at least it is complete for now...who knows?

October 11 is also Dallin's birthday and we had a fun party with pizza and a Spiderman cake to celebrate. You'll notice that Spiderman even showed up to for the party! Pin The Nose On the Pumpkin was the game of the day. Thanks , Lindsay for all the good food and fun. We love you Dallin! But you are growing up too fast!

October 11th was Alyse's baptism day. We expected a small group since it would only be Alyse and one other young boy being baptised, but it is clear that everyone loves Alyse. There were 120 people there! Of course, she was baptised by her Dad, with Grandpa Le Sueur and Grandpa Fairbourn as witnesses. Her young friends brought her flowers and gifts. Alyse was the center of attention! We were so happy to be there to share the day with her and her family.

Balloon Heaven in Texas

Ethan brought home large mylar balloons for all the kids. The had so much fun for the next week until the ceiling fan killed one of the balloons. No problem, there was a substitute.

Richards visit to California

I had bought a big container of Legos at a garage sale with no idea what could be made from them....Austin was challenged to see what he could make and I would take photos of his creations.....he is so creative and made so many different things. Veronica and Jessica made cool things too.

At the State Fair, Melissa and Jessica and SUmmer on the Tilt a Whirl.

We also went to the kids water park in Folsom for lunch and splash fun.

We also took sidewalk chalk and bubbles.

Shopping with grandma is fun. Can you read what is written on Alyse's shirt?
It says, "If it's drama you want, here I am!" Boy, does that ever fit?

Make your own Pizza night!

What good does it do to have a dentist for your grandpa unless he brushes your teeth once in a while?
