The activity director of the home set it up so we could have a table in a room by ourselves..they put out coffee, tea, and water for us.. Janna and I cut out snowflakes on the cricut to use as place mats. Blue and winter was the theme.

The cake for their anniversary.

59 years!!

Today is Mom and Dad's 59th anniversary...Janna and family and I plan to go and have a small party with cake and gifts for them this afternoon.

Since I am not home I don't have the pictures I wanted to put on will do that when I get home..

They were not too happy when we got there yesterday...they thought their girls forgot about them..not so we just had to get a few things before we went there..we did have tea with them and met their tablemates...we hope they will adjust and like it there.

Willow Creek Place

It's been a week since I came to Iowa.
We moved Mom and Dad on went pretty smoothly.. Dad's comment was when we told him we were moving him was " to the nursing home?" Glad we don't have to do that. I have taken them out to the farm twice,,,we went Sunday afternoon and Dad just took a walk around the place...he said we left " too hasty" which I guess we did on Friday. Yesterday -Monday- we went out in the afternoon and got the mail and a few other things.
Mom keeps busy making it a home..and then takes a rest and starts all over. Dad eats good but other than that he rests..
Peter and his girls, Syd and his family, Janna and family and later Brant and Joyce were all here to help with the move,... THANKS EVERYONE!!!
I'm gradually getting the phone and other paper work in order..need to go to the bank yet.
Sorry I can't send pictures.
I had the ladies at the library help me and they didn't know how to fix the problem...
