From one generation to the next...

If anybody is familiar with our family, Ashlynn inherited many traits of Grandma Caroline. Never mind that she is the only granddaughter, she loves to go big - just like her grandma. She took those traits, confidence and compassion and decided to put on a bake sale last year benefiting ALS. Many of you contributed to that effort for which we were grateful.

The ALS association in Irvine was so touched with her donation and the work she put on, that she was invited down to Irvine this evening to honor her Grandma at their awards banquet. True to form, following in her Grandma's heritage, she made the family proud this evening.

Sorry for tablecloth in 1/2 the shot. My hands were shaking so bad, I had to balance the camera on the table for stability. It was an honor to associate with many ALS members and all the staff from the Irvine ALS chapter. May the world find a cure for this disease and long live the memory of Grandma Caroline.

Merry Christmas from Heaven

My house is clean and the Christmas music is on. I'm ready to decorate for Christmas! The first box I brought in happened to be my Moms Genealogy Tree. It had one ornament hanging on it....
