Grandpa's Birthday and the Special Treat


My mother and father visited us this week to celebrate my father's birthday. They had not visited our home since June! My parents own and operate a large vegetable and pumpkin farm, so the prolonged absence was understandable. We decided to lunch at the Italian restaurant where I work. After a full five course meal, Pa-pa decided to give Aveline a special treat- her first taste of chocolate. She loved it...of course. After that bite, she was convinced that each and every bite should be hers. She would intently focus on the spoon, tracking it from dish to mouth. She frowned with disapproval if the mouth into which the spoon landed was not hers. I think we created a chocaholic monster.

Thanks for the comment. I got the logo from searching on Google Images for "buckeye". Then I just shrank it down in MSPaint to the size I wanted. Thanks for visiting!

Came in from BE... what an adorable baby (great pix) -- and a fun Pa-pa!

Good job, Papa! Chocolate is a wonderful thing. :) Josh and I love the pics! We think Aveline looks a little bit like your dad!

Aww! Look at the expression of longing on her face in that second last picture!

I never realized the resemblance between your dad (Kristi) and Dan! At a glance they look a lot alike :)

Aveline is too cute!! She reminds me of Rachel at her age - they go by fast - once the sweet tooth hits, its all over. Rachel slurped down a milkshake from Steak N Shake today in record time.

Love, Sarah
