Welcome to my blog! I hope you enjoy reading about my busy life with my husband of 30 years and our four sons and daughter-in-law. We are now empty nesters and my blog is helping me through the journey. I love the Lord and I love my family. I also love to decorate and go to thrift stores!
Eric's sister, Stacey, and her husband Jim and her two kids,Monique and Preston drove down from another town to be with us for Christmas dinner. Eric's parents also came over. Here's Stacey, Monique, Brittany and I all together.

Time to exchange gifts!
Eric's folks gave him a new riffle!
It's so much fun to watch others open gifts!
Since Cameron's girlfriend, Megan, was not with us on Christmas morning, she's opening her gifts now.
We bought her a new red hat with matching scarf and gloves.
They look good on her!
Mmmm! It's time to eat!
Eric smoked a beautiful prime rib and we also baked a ham!
What a delicious spread!
Grandpa's loading up his plate!
Alice and Jim enjoying their meal!
What great food!
Time for a family game!
We played a guessing game.
We broke in to two teams.
It's kind of like 20 questions and charades.
We had soooo much fun!
It's my turn to give clues....
....except I'm stumped on what to do!
Grayson's having fun!
Grandma insisted on standing to give her clue, but she's unstable on her feet, so Hayden helped her. We had such a fun time. I love our family!!!!
It's hard to believe that Christmas has come and gone once again. It was a lovely season this year. We are so blessed!
