Hi Dad,
Just stopping by to wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy New year.

I went to Mah's for Christmas dinner with Azriel, David and Sydnee and Marie went this year, it was nice.

I did Christmas gifts with Azriel different this year, usually I bring everything over Ashley's and we open everything over her house, then I need to bring all Azriel's things back home, including all of what I brought of his over to her house, so anything for him, from me, I left under our tree this year, and we got up an hour earlier and was able to have a Christmas at home, as well as at Ashley's. Azriel liked it this way he said, and I did too. so well do it this way for now on.

It's been really cold the last week, below zero all week. today its 2 degrees.. its a heat wave.. LOL.. we got so much snow Christmas day.

All is well here. Cold but were all ok..
That's it for now, I'll be back later.

I love and miss you forever and a day.

Hi Dad,
I know I'm late, but Happy belated Thanksgiving. I had a nice day, I went to Mah's for our traditional dinner with Azriel, I brought Adonis this year. Angel was at his other grandmothers, so it was just us 4. Ashley went up to Jon's for the week, so I had the kids. Hope you enjoyed all the heavenly Thanksgiving smells that floated up your way.

Azriel had his teacher conference, he made out very well, she said he's her star pupil. That's always nice to hear. he has come a long way. He reads a story to me every night, and is doing well with it.

Not much happening here, it's getting cold here, not happy about that. so far, we have been lucky with the white stuff I don't want to say what it is, it may jinx it.

Well Dad, I'm going to make this short, Azriel and I are watching Rudolf, the first Christmas special of the season for us. I'll be back soon.

Hi Dad,
Just checking in. Not much going on around here. Halloween was a few days ago. the kids had fun. Angel, Azriel, Adonis, Cayden, Keegan, and Gracie, walked around the block with Me, Ashley, David, Raeleen, Hans, Mariah, Daniel, Sydnee and a friend of Sydnee's, it was a nice night. I'll leave you the picture.

Weather had been nice for October and November so far, thank you for that, keep that snow button locked up behind the lock box, we don't want any of that white stuff except on Christmas day.

I'm going to New Hampshire Sunday with David, Mah and Marie, going to the cemetery, finally got the cemetery to agree to let us to hang a plaque for Great Grampy Pelletier acknowledging him, where they don't know where he's buried there anymore. I know it's not locating his grave IN the cemetery, but at lease its saying he's there. I wrote a poem and it's on the plaque, and signed with all our names. I'll continue looking for his burial site despite the plaque being hung. I want to know where he is, just like we found his wife, Great Grammy in there. I wish it was as easy as saying there buried together, but him dying 20 years earlier makes the chances very unlikely as she's so far from the front of where the old graves are.

Angel and Azriel are going there 3rd session of swim class. Adonis started them last session too so this is his 2nd session. They started that last night. There doing well in that, and love it.

Mah is doing ok, misses you as always. She just re-did the floors. They came out good. We all went over after trick or treating the other day, so she had a house full.

Well Dad, I'm going to go, I need to go to the grocery store, Azriel asked if we can have Italians for Supper tonight so I need to pick up the fixings for them.

I love and miss you forever and a day

Hi Dad,
Thought Id drop you a note to say hi and give the updates. The kids have 2 weeks left of camp. I cant believe its gone that fast already, doesn't feel like its already been 5 weeks. They have loved it.

Happy belated 4th, Me, ANgel, Azriel, David, Sydnee. Raeleen, Cayden, Keegan, and Hans went to spend it with Mah. we watched the fireworks from the road, as we usually do. you had the best seat of all again. they were very pretty.

Today's wicked hot, its 84 but very humid. I'm going to go hibernate in the bedroom where the AC is.

David and I got Mah to go feed the ducks the other day (little bit of guilt goes a long way.. LOL) I think she enjoyed it, I know I really did. there was a... darn, I cant remember the name of it, I want to say crane but I know that's not it, anyway, it looked like a crane, it was beautiful, all white, and it stayed in the water where we were, almost like it know Mah was watching it. there were the ducks, and turtles, so they all came out for a show for her. believe it or no this is on Stevens avenue.

well Dad, the kids just ran in from upstairs and there acting like animals, LOL so I've got to go for now,

I love and miss you forever and a day

Hi Dad
Its been a little bit since I've been here and I'm sorry about that. I know you've been watching everything that's been gone on, I've felt you around and seen little signs of you around me.

Not a lot going on. Azriel and Angel are all done school for the summer. They started summer camp for the next 7 weeks on Monday, they like it so far. I bring them in the AM, and pick them up in the afternoon. They also started swim lessons last Thursday. remember, Azriel wants to swim in the Olympics, so he says he started training for the Olympics. he's funny

Adonis is going to go into pre-k in September, that will make all the grand babies in school. makes me feel so old.

As you know. Azriel, Adonis and I laid out a blanket on fathers day with you and had a picnic, its funny, Azriel swears he sen the potato chip move he put down near your stone for you.

We came up to spend some time with you on your birthday on the 24th, but Adonis doesn't understand that when I say going to Grampies, that its not the same as going to see Grammy. I cant even begin to explain to him at 3 years old, that your there but not.

Mah and Marie went out to visit on your birthday too. and David had been there, I seen the new card he had left for you.

I went over to spend the day with Mah today after the kids got dropped off at camp, it was a really nice visit, but then again, it always is.the sky was so blue today and the cloud so white that the white clouds hurt my eyes.

well Dad, not much has been going on here, kinda booring.. LOL. I'll keep ya updated as stuff happens.

I love and miss you forever and a day.

Hi Dad. Sorry for the long delay in stopping by, but nothing really to report. Today is April 1st (April fools day), and I really don't think a snow storm today was any sort of April fools joke, especially when the snow was melting so nicely from the last storm you guys dropped on us.. now please be so kind as to let the sun shine bright and hot so it will melt this nonsence..

As you may know by now, Bobby B died the 21st of March. Very unexpected, he went into the hospital a few days before, the day he died, he was doing better and the Dr's were moving him into another room, but some how he took a turn for the worse. he as only 68.

Aunt Bev also died the other day, March 27th.

Everyone seems to be doing well here. I went to a teachers conference for Azriel. he's doing really well in school. Adonis is signed up for Pre K, to start in September this year.

Not a lot happening, so not a lot to report.

I love and miss you Dad forever and a day

Hi Dad,
Just stopping by to ask a favor of you. Someone must have been playing a joke and jammed the snow storm lever, because we have gotten nailed with snow, and its still coming down. We have gotten so far since yesterday about 15", and that's not including the storm from last week. We were down to ground, we could walk around with no jacket on, it was nice, we had 50 degree weather the other day. now were up to our butts in snow. Can you try to find the snow lever and un jam it for me, so we can stop the snow? My car looks like its been swallowed up by the storm.
