Relocate to Wisconsin : Making New Memories this Holiday Season....

Making New Memories this Holiday Season....

   When you no longeer have family....holidays can be difficult.....and then if you are very lucky....they just become ...different and with the friendship of people you love and respect...the healing is easier and the new  memories are ready to happen.  No one can tell you when the "right time" is for that to happen...there is not is different for everyone.  For us, it has been a four year journey and new memories were extra special this year.

    Our alternate passion to real estate is cooking and entertaining....we were fortunate to have friends who treat as family and we enjoy being part of the Olive penguins celebration...not without bringing "something to the table."  This time, nothing very complicaated....but well received and fun. Mmm...cream cheese and olive penquins

      Everyone's favoite every time of year with the "wreaths" of green olives decorating the tops.  They always seem Deviled eggsto be gobbled up no matter how great the rest of the dinner is or who many we make...they do a disappearing act !

      No appetizer table in Wisconsin would be complete without a Cheese ball of some kind...and frosty made his appearance with goodies tucked int a his multi cheese  body including  bacon bits and green onions......mmmmm!

Frosty the cheeseball      Our contributions were just the prelude to ham, turkey, mega vegetables and later of course....mega desserts !

        The real show stealer at this gathering was not ON the table....but AT the table...introducing the yougest member of our sphere...Stella  Jeske.  We  have known her grandparents for years....and her parents...and her aunts and uncles and cousins who are all sphere members and past clients of ours...Stella Jeske.Here she is just 4 months old ....and rarely makes a sound other than to cooo.....and let you know it's time to fill her bottle.....welcome to your first Christmas...Stella....and we know you will enjoy many, many more.    

   May this season of celebration find you in the company of good friends and family if you have one....and know that there are many more precious memories to be made....cherish them all....Hansons Both.

Morning Sally.

Never had or heard of the penguins.  Cheese balls, now that one is a staple around here.

Good morning Sally and David - it is wonderful to share Christmas with a new child.  We had a one year old at our celebration.

A cheese ball in Wisconsin? What's that all about, Sally?!!

What lovely holiday memories you're creating and I love that you added a new member to your sphere - how sweet is that face?!

Now, enjoy the showings in the snow and be safe!

Hi Sally K. & David L. Hanson - Stella is such a cutie and my feeling is, family is what we make of it. We moved away from our entire family in SoCal but new traditions were created with neighbors and friends we made in Sedona. One of my sons decided to move out here also...a real blessing. We consider our close neighbors family and insist these couples who are alone celebrate with us.
