snow shoeing. He had to teach the kids what snow shoeing was. Very neat.

rice cakes shaped like Twinkies. He shared one with everybody so we could taste them.
They were gobbled up!

Addie’s family always make handmade ornaments. Here is one she

stay with your kids as they leave your house and are more important than
you think as you are raising them. I know….mine all have adopted some of mine and added their own….
