This post is way past due, but it certainly couldn't get lost in the shuffle. In October we headed up to the Twin Cities to visit family and participate in the Rooster Rush promotion at the Vikings game for my work.
We were able to all get together to celebrate Grandma Fran's birthday at her apartment building. It has a great lobby area where we could all congregate. Grace was very happy to see all of her cousins, great aunts and her great-grandma Fran. She was quite the waitress serving cake and ice cream to other residents.
Here's Grace with my Fairy Godmother and her Great Aunt Linda

All of the Granddaughters - missing the Grandsons Patrick and Brendan
It was a very nice visit, and we hope we'll get to see all these faces again soon. It doesn't happen as much as we'd like, and it gets to be a long drive with Miss Grace all the way to the cities...however, we try to get up there at least once a year. Maybe we can make it up there to swim in Aunt Linda's pool this summer.
Merry Christmas to all of the Moret family as we won't be able to celebrate this year with them. We love and miss all of you!
