Great Portrait and news


This wonderful portrait was done byYevgenia Watts who is a member of the Everyday Matters group. She has set a goal of 206 portraits in 206 days. Oliver is my oldest grandchild and this is right on!

The big news in our family is the birth of twin girls, Oliver's sisters. They were born Monday, September 27, about one month early. Isla (Eye-la) and Ruby have lots of hair and are doing well. Early babies need to learn to suck, but they are working on that process. Hopefully they will go home within the next week. Since they live in Ohio, and I'm in California, I will have to wait until the end of this month before I get to hold them.
