Formerly "Neil Stone Updates"

Saturday, December 10, 2011


First came Nadene, my awesome mother-in-law. She never stopped working. She raked leaves, washed dishes, tended the baby (more about him later), vacuumed, and dusted. I couldn't stop her! And when all the work was done, she was the queen of the games: Quiddler, 5 Crowns, Banana Grams, Shanghai Rummy, and more. Fun times indeed! Here she is with her delicious "Cloud 9" rolls for our Thanksgiving feast. Oh, and did I say she cooked? Well, she did that too!   

Next came the Alison's family: Brandon, Alison, Emerson, and Brisquette, the dog. 

You better believe there was a lot of baby spoiling around here!

Then came Carl, Brandon's dad. He came to be here for Emerson's blessing. 

And now for some pictures, because we took a lot of them!

I'm having trouble adding more pictures. I'm taking it as a sign that it's time to stop. For more fun pictures, check out Alison's blog entries:  Family Thanksgiving,   New York City & Asbury Park, and  Baby Grows.

What a heartwarming post! I'm glad you had such a fun Thanksgiving with such wonderful visitors, especially that cute little bundle of joy. I'm so happy for you, Grandma.
Love, Michelle (sis)

Thanks, Michelle! Now I have a better understanding of your attachment to your little red-heads. Not that anyone would have any trouble being attached to those cuties!

Such a cute post!! All very beautiful pictures. Yep, Brandon said Grandma Stone works and cleans all the time. I wonder if we can borrow her, ha. Really, it's nice to have help at the holidays. I'm so glad you all had a great time. Oh, that baby boy is growing sooooo fast. I miss him.
