Today we had our hands in sticky peanut butter! We covered pine cones with a generous amount of bird seed. I hung them on the tree right outside the dining room window. The temperature dropped, we are hoping for the birds to come out after it warms up a few degrees. It was a very fun morning!

Hello, Bickford Family! Welcome to 2017! Happy New Year, family! The weather looks to from 20-30 degrees this week. Bundle up and as always, please drive safe on your travels! I would like to send a very special thank you to Linda White, from Home Bound who shared with us a presentation on New York City and different cultures with their celebrations for New Years. It was very interesting, to say the least. We often don’t think about different holiday traditions because we are busy accommodating to our own. Thank you for sharing and for the assortment of treats. We appreciated your time. Now that the Christmas season is over, we are taking down our decorations and also our wreaths on our doors. If you have noticed, the residents who would like a personalized letter with decoration are hanging on their doors. They chose the color scheme to their taste and I love the variety around the building. It took us 2 days, with only a few more to go! Be sure to check them out! Thank you again, to Janet Lieb who has been a joy around here to watch. She plays her guitar and sings for us. Check out our blog! We post pictures of our events and activities, I would love to share them with you. www.enrichinghappiness.com/musactine we also have our Bickford Muscatine Facebook page to look as well. Thank you to the YMCA here in Muscatine for doing exercises twice a month for us. We greatly appreciate the enthusiasm that you bring to your program. Tomorrow we are going to gather around and taste Oreo Balls! They are crushed Oreos, cream cheese and dipped in white chocolate. I am making smaller bite size pieces and I will be posting pictures! Yum! If you don’t already have a calendar, please grab one at the entrance of our building. Each month there will be a new calendar for you. If you would like one mailed, please give me a call at the Branch and I will gladly send one to you. Brittni Johnson, LEC 563-263-6600. We have a variety of different things going on throughout this month and I invite you to share them with us.  Our Hat Day will be Thursday, January 12th. We are catering lunch in for our Red Hat Ladies, the weather is still too cold to travel for our outings. Also, please bring in a crazy hat for your loved one for our contest at 2pm! We will be wearing hats, drinking tea and having a great time. Our other event for January will be our delicious Chocolate Cake Day, what sounds better than that? We are having our chocolate baking contest and several judges to taste our treats. Our birthday bingo will be at 1:30 and the Willy Wonka Movie and popcorn will be at 3pm. Sounds delightful and we can’t wait! The monthly Homemade Ice cream social will be Wednesday, January 25th at 3pm! Have a great week, happiness to all!

Sharing each others company talking and designing our family trees. Bringing back thoughts of childhood and siblings. Remembering our Great Grandparent's home in Germany that had their home and animal buildings attached together. Straw was on the roof and for insulation. Life was a lot harder back then doing chores without the technology that we have today. Our roots run deep, and I enjoy listening to everyone's stories today and always.

We celebrated our family history today with new memories here in Muscatine. We started our day with our local farmers and learned about the harvest process, animal informational and facts, and about farm equipment. Each one of us told our stories of where we grew up and how our life experience was similar and different. Today brought back my childhood of climbing apple trees and the fresh eggs from the barn. This day touched my heart as well as everyone here who share this journey of life with us. I feel very blessed!
