For Christmas, 2008, two new people joined us for the holiday: Sayuri, an exchange student from Japan staying with Liz and Jim, and Kristine, John's girlfriend. Sayuri has gone back to Japan, but Kristine will be joining our family permanently this summer when she and John marry. It's so exciting!
These pictures are bittersweet in a way as Mom, suffering from Alzheimer’s since 2004, cannot make "Grandma buns" and lefsa now like she did in 2008. It is hard to see her lose ground, but it also good to look back and remember the good times. (May 17, 2012)
