One More Visit to Great Grandma Howards

Posted by danaandtammy on Thursday Dec 31, 2009 Under Kid Pictures, Photographs

We’ll probably say some good-byes tomorrow, but we had one more play date with Great Grandma tonight. Emma played some more dominoes with her and Kenny explored her apartment. It was a good time.

One of Kenny’s favorite pastimes besides pressing buttons on electronic devices, is to remove twist off lids and then put them back on.

Here we have 4 generations on Tammy’s side of the family. Great Grandma Howard, Grandma Fishback, Tammy, Emma, and Kenny Swanstrom

Dominoes with Great Grandma

Emma was able to spend some time with Great Grandma. Great Grandma is good at games and Emma just got some new games for Christmas, so they enjoyed playing together.

Christmas in Colorado

Posted by danaandtammy on Tuesday Dec 29, 2009 Under Holidays, Holidays, Kid Pictures, Photographs, Special Events

We celebrate Christmas in Colorado on December 27th. Great Grandma Howard came over for the presents and for Christmas dinner. It was nice to have arrived safely and celebrate Christmas together, even if it was a day later than planned.

Tammy was able to buy a used toy dishwasher via Craigslist. It was being sold in Colorado, so Tammy’s mom picked it up and then we gave it to Emma in Pueblo. The only challenge left is how to get it back to Eau Claire. All this work to complete Emma’s pink kitchen set.

Grandma Fishback made Emma some nightgowns. Here is her “Little Miss” nightgown.

Grandma Fishback opened an ornament picture frame with a picture of her and Kenny in it.

Day 2 Visiting Great Grandmother

Posted by danaandtammy on Wednesday Mar 18, 2009 Under Uncategorized

Emma loves to trace her hands and feet. We even got big enough paper at home to trace her whole body. During one of our visits to Great Grandmother on Monday, Emma traced her own hand and then Great Grandma’s hand.

Day 1 Visiting Great Grandmother

Posted by danaandtammy on Sunday Mar 15, 2009 Under Uncategorized

Our main activity for today was to visit Great Grandma Howard.  Great Grandma is Tammy’s mom’s mom. She lives here in Pueblo. We spend time just talking and being together. It was nice and relaxing.
