A wonderful visit

NormanKatyNorman came to visit with his daughters on the west coast again and got to spend time with his granddaughters and other admirers.  Here we see him with his wife, Katy, while visiting in Atherton, California.

A wedding to remember!

I am delighted to report that my granddaughter, Alaine Anhalt, wed her long-time boyfriend, Josh Newland, at a gorgeous Sonoma Valley location this past weekend.

A visit to Celebration

About “Celebration”

[/vc_column_text]

[vc_column_text]Parents at the Gideon Hausner school commissioned Gardner to produce this piece to stand as a landmark identifying the entrance to the school.  The project was launched in the fall of 2005 and Celebration was installed in May of 2006.  You can see step-by-step photos of the creation of Celebration on the Work-in-Process page.[/vc_column_text]
