We can’t think of a greater way to start the Christmas season than joining Gretchen D’Huyvetter Cobb and these four young men for an open house at Ian and Andrew’s school this evening. The topic was a Celebration of Learning by Ian’s class showcasing their recent studies of cultures. Gramma Jan and I were impressed with the material they covered and Ian’s good explanations of their studies. Thank you Ian!!
Everett was baptised on April 12th, 2015 at the Episcopal Church of the Epiphany in Decatur. The D’Huyvetter and Cobb families turned out to support James and Gretchen in this important milestone and to celebrate Everett’s entrance into Christ’s kingdom. Congratulations Everett!!
James and Gretchen hosted a celebration lunch afterward at their home in Decatur. The gathering was a relaxed affair with good food and lots of time to visit with the D’Huyvetters and play with the kids.
Missing from the celebration were Izzy (ill), Dan (taking care of Izzy), and John & Sharon’s family (spring break vacation). We missed you all, and look forward to catching up with you soon!!

Happy Birthday Ian!!
Grandma Jan and I had the privilege of attending the celebration of his sixth birthday with his friends on September 27th at James and Gretchen’s Decatur home. The weather was great and the kids enjoyed being able to run and play outdoors. Ian’s guests were a nice mix of his kindergarten classmates plus neighborhood friends.
It was a great party. Ian was a great host greeting every arrival with a big hug and cheery hello, and Gretchen and James did a masterful job of keeping the kids busy and entertained throughout the afternoon. (more…)
