A day with Grandma and Grandpa Basco

Today, we went for lunch at my parents. Annika, Andrea, and I picked up some groceries on West Fourth and we made sandwiches. Annika was especially talkative throughout lunch and impressed all with her emerging (slowly) ability to crawl.

December 25th dinner with the Bascos

In a very generous gesture to save Andrea and me from the stress of hosting a largish dinner on our own (while caring for Annika), my parents agreed to host the dinner at their place. We, of course, did our best to help by making a few side dishes. My mum contributed a perfectly cooked rack of venison and potatoes while Andrea made green beens and Brussels sprouts (a huge hit, I must say). I, of course, made corn to celebrate the occasion.

In attendance were: Norman and Vivien (my parents), Debbie, Roger, Kate, Rene, Helena, Charlotte, Gerry and Jane.
