Christmas Photo's!! Just a few!

Grams with my new MP3 player!! Kelly got me this! Now I have to learn how to use it!!!

The manager scene people are over 50 years old.
I got them at the old Ben Franklin store in Englewood in
Independence in 1958!

Kelly in her new PJ's
I know, don't faint I have the Christmas photo's posted already!! When I first started blogging I didn't know how to upload or any thing at all with getting photo's or linking and I have learned so much since I started in June of 2007! I didn't post a picture of Karen because I could not remember which one I could use!!
Bill,Becky,Jake, Sarah, and Kyle didn't get to come up here on Christmas Day so we are having our Christmas with them next weekend.
It has snowed every morning since Christmas.In fact it snowed most of the day yesterday!!We had a very quiet Christmas Day with just the four of us. We played games with Nancy. She got a board game, Trouble, Old Maid cards, and Don't break the Ice. She had a big time because Kelly was the old maid.
Wishing you all a Happy and Joyful New Year!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! Wishing you a wonderful New Year,too!

I was over at Shortybears Place and I read that her husband Eddie had a stroke. Please go over there and tell her you are praying. I am sure if you read her blog each day you have already heard. Our prayers are with you Denise and Eddie.

Our weather is to get bad by tomorrow afternoon! Calling for snow, ice, and everything in between!! I talked to my son Bill and if it is real bad they will come up the next day and we will have our Christmas then! I sure don't want them out on the roads with a snow storm going on!!

Ten more days until Christmas Eve!!

Here it is ten days until Christmas Eve! I still have some shopping to do. So does Nancy!She did get to go out to the Dollar General for a few minutes to get most of her gifts. She is almost done. We did get all her cards out and there was a lot to send! The tree is up and decorated and looks great. One of our kitty's does want to get into to it and the other one, our big brown cat just is to big and lazy to bother. Kelly is putting up the Christmas cards that have come in, up on your door. Where do you put yours? On the door or just in a pile or basket or maybe some special deal you have just for this.
I sure want to Thank everyone for your prayers for Nancy this past year and especially in Oct. when she was gravely ill. We are blessed to have her with us this year!!

Kelly hosted her work party at Karen house on Friday night and it went really well!! It looked so festive and Nancy and I got to have some of the goodies and they were yummy!!

I realize I haven't been a very good blogger lately but it is just to hard with Nancy and the way things are now..... I know everything will get better in time and like some of you have told me we will be here when things get better!!!

Some pictures of our Thanksgiving

My Son Bill craving the turkey

Sarah,Kelly and Kyle

Nancy and Rocksie Bill and Becky's dog

Jacob, Karen, and Sarah

Here are some picture we took at my son Bill's on Thanksgiving. It was a beautiful day and we had a bountiful dinner! So much to be Thankful for not only that day but each and every day!!
Nancy went in for labs today and her blood pressure was good! I held my breath as the nurse pumped up the blood pressure machine. I was so happy when it was almost normal.
Karen bought me a nice 4ft Christmas tree which is not live!! We had a live 3ft one last year and it was lovely but it was dry sooner than I would have liked. Karen took my big tree for her house and it looks almost little in her large living room!! It was almost to much in here so I am very happy to have this new one!!
Nancy is buzzing around so glad it is the first of December!! She started talking about Christmas like a couple of day after last years Christmas. It wears on you trust me when you hear the same thing several times a day. But this is the way she is and we just love her and take care of her! She loves to send Christmas cards so I must get this going for her again. She sent out last year with my help 32 cards I did the addressing, and she can sign her name. It brings her so much joy I can't find the heart to say no.
