My favorite toy

This is me at almost 3 years old. Mom always said I was 2 1/2, but Grandma Wonsey had 3 years on the back of the picture. This was taken a Grandma's house in Kalkaska, Michigan. The doll was a stuffed toy with a plastic face. I remember when the face began to crack and there was no way to fix it. I was heartbroken.

One new addition to our family--

This is Senorita, Sindy for short. She is our tiny little Chihuahua--1 1/2 pounds when we got her at 6 1/2 weeks old. Her birthday is October 28, 2010. She is supposed to be mine, but has fallen in love with my 7 year old grandson, David. 

Back again!

It has been eight months since I have written here. Shame on me! So many things have been going on and I just have not had the time to do any research. So hopefully I can get started again. I miss doing my genealogy big time! In the last few weeks I have come across new cousins and grandparents. One cousin was able to post pictures of my mother's grandpa. I also found out that the 21st governor of California, George Cooper Pardee, was an uncle to my husband. I was so exited to put names with faces. It makes this so much more fun when a face goes along with a name.
This picture is of Governor Pardee with President Roosevelt.
