I got your card when we got back. It turned out really well. The cranberry relish was a hit. I'm thinking about tweaking it a bit to try to make a salsa. It sounds like you all had a great time. I know it was quite a trip for you guys, but from what Syndi said John and Louise really enjoyed seeing all the great grandkids. Everet was excited to see you guys. He was just kicking and grinning when I was telling him he was going to meet you! Have a great one!
