Evie and Santa Toy

Ron bought this climbing Santa a few years ago. I think it is the only Christmas decoration he has ever bought. The kids think it is hilarious!

Jackson's Bike Ride

Jackson went and grew up! He can ride a bike. And wasn't afraid of the hill in front of our house.

Christmas Memories























I love Christmas! The grandkids just made everything so much more fun. Seeing their excitement was great.
And I loved my gifts. My kids are really good at picking out personal gifts. Amanda used the kids hand prints and foot prints to make a pot, that was from the Thomas family. The Dowler and Tripp family arranged the picture of all the grandkids. I asked for a picture, and they had already planned it.
I like to celebrate Christmas for the complete month, extending into January. So the decorations and tree will not come down until Friday.
But then we start planning for spring blooms!

Branson Trip


This is kind of a tradition, visiting Silver Dollar City and staying at Stonebridge Resort. This cabin at Branson is very resonable in price, convient to stay at, roomy enough for 13 people.
I bought the PJ's at the Holiday House for the grandchildren. I thought they were so cute.
I pulled them out and showed them to Jackson. He was not impressed that his wasn't Batbam pj's, but at least he wore them for a little while.

Barn Raising!




We are having a lot of work done to and around our house. The barn is so exciting. We have all of Ron's yard equipment in the barn and my Christmas stuff, along with 20 plus years worth of belongings.
Now the contractor is working on turning the garage into a pool house.
After Christmas, we will start on remodeling the house. I will post pictures as work is completed.
I plan on having room for our family events in the future!
