Wishing all a Merry Christmas and a Happy new year!


Phil and I are very blessed people.

In a year of hardship we have seen kindness, mercy and love all around us
We are very grateful
For all of you we are grateful

Kodak gave a bunch of us some free product. I choose Christmas cards for my freebie and

here it is lovely and nice. If you didn't get a card your's is here, twenty cards don't go very far

Merry Christmas everyone

Please celebrate

We have a glorious reason to do so!




(Give Kodak your online business I've always been pleased with every order and they ship very fast if you are needing one of those photo books as a gift.)

Our first holiday craft sales in a good many years


I was a big crafter from the beginning! I loved to sale my bears and dolls and baskets. I stopped some years ago when my kids got older and I got too busy to make dozens of the same thing.

But now I can join Phil and help him with his sale of beautiful wooden tops. Here are the photos of his first event. Clint made our great sign, thanks a bunch.

Awe yes on those cold, in the teens, dark mornings
you just can't go out without your reindeer antlers and sunglasses!

what happens when 11 cousins all meet?

HAY COUSIN!





Thanksgiving was amazing.


We had all 11 of our grand kids together for the first time.

Photos were hard to take. Someone always had a problem including the person pushing the timer on the camera and running to get into the photo. So enjoy how we all look believe me we know it's pretty crazy.
