This month is getting another late start for way too many reasons. Mom and Grandma stayed with us for the week after Thanksgiving, so they could enjoy the start of the Ferndale Christmas festivities. We were going to go to the first concert on Saturday, but Mom got sick so I stayed home with her. Then we found out that Grandma got sick during the concert. Our first thought was that both had come down with food poisoning, since they ate lunch together. With Mom feeling a bit better Sunday, she and I went to hear Lori sing with the Community Choir. Mom is sitting in the front pew on the right of the picture, and since I knew that wasn’t going to provide a very good view for taking pictures, I went up into the balcony.
