Grandchild #4–Owen Allan has arrived

owen allan

Kelly and Blake’s little bundle arrived Saturday eve and 7:32 – all 7# 9oz.  So that makes 4 grand kids – 3 boys  and 1 girl – with another one due in April!  The family keeps growing!

We Celebrated gr-son Caleb’s b-day in St Cloud yesterday during the snow storm – about 8-10” of the white stuff fell.caleb b dayBut that doesn’t stop a four year old from celebrating – they really enjoyed their first day of this season  snow.  Caleb’s mom (dil)made this really “cool” transformer birthday cake.

Was hoping not to have to put new tires on the old chevy until next spring but our little November snow storm changed my plans – so $400 later we had new tires on the car to drive him with last night.  O well it was now or later.

Really bright and cold out today with the new snow and ice is forming on the lake but doubt any of it will last long because temps are forecasted in the 50’ by Thanksgiving Day.

Down to 16 working days at the bank – time is starting to go fast.   We’ve had a lot going on and the next four weeks are just as busy as the last four – won’t be long and we’ll be back in TX.

Take Care.


  1. Congrats on your new Grandson - looks like a keeper for sure!!!

  2. Congrats how cute!! So when is the big retirement party or is that in Texas? We are getting geared up for Thanksgiving and then onto Christmas. Trying to get some stain glass projects done, but no going as well as planned. If we don't see you before you leave, have a great Winter and greet all for us. Barb & Roger

  3. Lots of celebrate out there. Birthdays, the little sweetie and working coming to an end. Oh, and some people would include a snow storm!

  4. What a cutie and she really is a keeper. Hope you have a big retirement party then head for Texas.

    We are planning to leave here Tuesday 12/20 since we are having a early Christmas with the kits and Grandkids, can't give that up. Hope to see when we get to Mission, TX.
