Dinner for Five

 Had a nice dinner at Olive Garden with Taylor, Jessica, and Reagan.

Reagan and I did not meet it off at first, but by the end of the night she would give me a kiss for some chocolate.  She even gave me or let me give her a goodbye hug.

A Little Art

While going through some things of my mother's, I ran across this little piece of art containing a quote from President Wilford Woodruff, and I thought I would share.  Enjoy!

Ralph and Cy Huntzinger

(Picture taken by John and Ann Young)

I am just sharing a picture taken by my brother and his wife late in 2012.  I have a special spot in my heart for Uncle Ralph and aunt Cy.  Also, I was named after two of my mother's brothers, Ivon and Ralph.  Enjoy!

Ida Lucille Huntzinger Young - Age 94

My mother on Saturday, December 29th.  The family got together to celebrate her 94 birthday, which was the day before.

My mother is is good spirits, but not eating much and mostly drinking some milk during the day.  She is down to about 95 pounds.  I am sorry to say, but I do believe I will be returning to Utah within a couple of months for her funeral.  She may surprise me and live longer.  In that case, I will see her in May when I visit Utah again.

- Have you wondered where these beached trees come from? There are about a dozen or more along the beach in this area, and I do not see tall trees along this coast to fall over. Interesting...

Christmas ...

... Is Coming! -

- We have two Christmas traditions. The first is rice crispy marshmallow treats with chocolate chips. Our first batch went before pictures could be taken. This tradition is a hand-me-down from my youth. My father would always make rice crispy marshmallow treats with chocolate chips on Christmas day. The second tradition is peanut butter balls dipped in chocolate. Nancy had to put them away, because I kept sneaking "just one" over and over.

- Michael Jr. -

- Alivia and Madison -

- Sarah helping Emma -

Making gingerbread houses (out of graham crackers) is a tradition. Our place is too small for all the grandkids to make them at the same time. We had Sarah, (late Mike due to work), and their kids (my grandkids) over for dinner and to make the houses. It was fun, and I had a blast. Laura and Larry will be over later this week. Enjoy!
