~ Fall's Harvest ~

Here it is, the end of September with Fall on our minds...the summer finally coming to an end for this year...and, indeed, what a year this has been!

My little sister Angela, my nephew Thomas and her fiance Rich came to visit Arizona. We all met at our home in Prescott and had a wonderful time as family with my DH Ken and our two doggies, Sean and Bebe. It was a full house!

We cooked ate and toured the Prescott area and found some lovely places to make memories. We went to the Heritage Park Zoo and strolled around downtown and simply enjoyed ourselves at home in the cool temps of the High Country.

We visited with family far and wide in Arizona. My sister and I have an aunt in Sun City and met with her for dinner one evening. My son Joseph, his fiance Becky and all of us came together for a BBQ one Saturday evening where my DH made his famous rub for flank steak.

And, of course, we went to see "The Girls", Keira and Kaely. The new family are doing fine and I enjoy visiting and helping out with feeding, changing and loving them up.

So, you see. all of the Love that has grown this year has just blossomed exponentially from family and friends. I am in awe as Autumn approaches and we count our Blessings this season.

Love to All...

~ The Girls Have Arrived! ~

Last evening I had the blessed opportunity to welcome into this world my two adorable granddaughters Keira Kathleen who weighed 4 lbs. 7 oz. and Kaely Kathryn who weighed 5 lbs. 12 oz. They were born at 9:08 and 9:09 PM at Scottsdale Healthcare Hospital here in Arizona. My son Artie and dear daughter in law Angie are the happy parents and everyone is doing fine. The girls are like little dolls, I got to see them shortly after their birth.

This afternoon I am planning on visiting the happy family and taking some photos of everyone. I will post them later.
