My favorite part was singing in the choir directed by the fabulous Suzanne Shippen, who directed her own original music! I'm helping her develop a website to share her music! You can visit it at suzanneshippenmusic.com/. She is so busy composing that she doesn't have time to upload her more than 70 songs. Please nag her about getting her music online! She wants you to sing her songs, but you can't do it if they are not readily accessible!
My second favorite part was eating lunch with the ladies afterwards! It was delicious, and we never have enough time to just visit!

To really enjoy it, go see it in real life! I can't wait to go back and take Ed with me!

The hardest part about indoor pickleball is assembling the net. There are a lot of poles and no instructions! Fortunately, we think we did it better this time than last time. If we just played more often we could get the hang of it!
We enjoyed looking at some pictures of dad during his heyday!

Tomorrow it's supposed to snow, but I don't know about that!
We had to see The Last Jedi to know what everyone is talking about. I liked the red guards, but other than that there was entirely too much fighting and exploding for me!
We went out for a late lunch at Oh, Mai, Vietnamese cuisine, and had time to visit afterwards. Don't tell Mabel we also had ice cream without her!

Three months ago Mabel was afraid of the big slide, but this time she went down it without any encouragement and ran over to Ed and yelled, "Grandpa, I did it!!" That was fun to see!

My niece, Abby is getting married next month, and we had a shower for her on Saturday! (She's the one on the right on the couch!). It is exciting to see her getting married. We were lucky to have shared those Colorado years with her, where Barbara's and my family both grew up.
In an amazing turn of events she will be Abigail Adams! I wonder if the name had a little extra attraction for her!
My sister, Barbara hosted the event and invited her family as well as Abby's Stevens family. I had only met Naomi once before!
My sister Annette is visiting here with Arlene, who is a Stevens aunt we know well, as she married our cousin!
Eli's wife Lacy is expecting again, and Barbara will soon have TWO grandchildren! My brother's wife Sara was there, as well as my mom! It was a real celebration! Congratulations, Abby!

We're lucky Brittany works in such an interesting place and is able to share it with us!
