Sheila, Ricky and Sheldon headed back to their desolate rock in the north Atlantic today. Before they left, we did have a gathering with other aunts, uncles, and cousins in Chadd's Ford on December 29th, which was also Mary's birthday. Happy Birthday Mary! 29 again. See photo's here.
On New Year's Eve, Mary, William and I took Sheldon on a tour of old City Philadelphia. We stopped by the Constitution Center, the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, The Dream Garden, Jeweler's Row, Jim's Steaks, South Street, New Market (which is really an old market), Penn's Landing, Elfrith's Alley, and the Betsy Ross House. All in one Day! Then we got home in time to go to our nighbor's house for a New Years Eve Celebration! See Photo's of our day in Philly here.
We enjoyed our visit with Ricky, Sheila, and Sheldon, and hope someday soon to visit them!
Russell, Mary, Emily, William and Paddy.
