Christmas in Utah

Look at our cute Travis and Becky with their wedding quilt! I had to have a photo of them with it. Their apartment looks darling, and the quilt is hanging in the wall in the living room. I am glad they like it!

Look how much our little Isaac is growing! He is wrapped in his daddy's arms here. So sweet!

Renn is loving every minute of this baby! Sorry about the red-eye. My photo shop is on my computer and I am on Dad's laptop.

Sweet Baby Isaac with his mommy, Keira!

And with Becky! 

Happy Daddy!

Grandma and Grandpa and Isaac!

And finally, look at these beautiful snow covered mountains!

We go home tomorrow and life will go back to some semblance of normal. But it has been so much fun being here for Christmas and spending time with Renn, Keira, Isaac and Becky and Travis! 

It's a Wonderful Life!

Welcome to our world little Isaac Michael Patch. He was born December 2, 2009, weighing 8 pounds and 2 ounces. Keira and Renn are thrilled with their new little boy. Through the miracle of cell phones Renn send us pictures immediately. Then Becky rushed to the hospital and took more for us! Read Becky's sweet blog  for her take on the whole scene. Then she also posted on the Froelich Family blog as well. Great pics! Thank you Becky.

We are all very excited for this new little arrival! For one thing, we have another grandson to carry on the Patch name! We keep trying to buy Jack off to change his name to Patch, but so far his father is very opposed. Go figure.

Keira and Renn, congratulations and we can't wait to be with you! Send more photos and I will be happy to show them off here for all to see!

Bye Bye Birdie

I just stripped the rest of the meat from our Thanksgiving bird. Tomorrow it will be a week. Better use that meat up! I will throw the bones in the crock pot tomorrow for soup. It can simmer away while I am busy outside the kitchen. Tonight I made turkey pie and that is in the oven. Won't Dad be happy? I haven't cooked since Thanksgiving. Seriously, I guess it is time. So here is my super simple recipe for Chicken or Turkey Pie:

Prepare a pie crust or purchase one
Two cups of cooked, cut up chicken/turkey or 3 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 can (16 oz) Veg-All (mixed vegetables)
2 cans soup, Cream of Chicken and Cream of Potato
Bake in a pie crust for one hour at 350 degrees.
Easy as pie!

Dad always wishes this was apple pie, but he does like it.

We are still waiting to hear from Renn and Keira. They went to the hospital this morning for the baby to be induced. Come on baby boy, we are waiting for you!
