Merry Christmas 2017


Miss Lizzie the kitten has taken my spot. Nothing like a sleeping kitten.

It’s Christmas Eve and things are kind of slowing down a little bit. The shopping is basically done for both the gifts and cooking. We are going to have time to enjoy each other’s company.


Abbie and her goofy grin.

My brother joined us yesterday. He had a grueling drive through some driving rain and he was exhausted when he got here.


Ginger is a little sweetie. She gets cold in the winter. I think she wants us to move to Scotsdale or maybe a warm beach somewhere. Heather bought her this bed for the living room and a fleece throw. She can roll herself up in the throw like a burrito.

Son Logan has been working the 3 pm to 8 pm shift for several nights at the grocery store. He was also tired. He went to bed early. He has a few days off over the holidays which is great. He needs the rest. In the midst of all this he finished his finals. The boy who hates math made a B in his pre-calculus class. He is done with his math requirement. He didn’t get my math genes but he got his singing genes from his mother’s side.


We spent some time with Heather’s mother yesterday and will be going back today. She has three trees up for Christmas. I love this in particular. It is a country theme and has a wood stove that has been in her family a long time. It is not connected and that is okay, it just sits there looking great.


We had a little bit of snow yesterday and it was cold enough and overcast enough it persisted all day. Something about snow is calming.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas!!

    The pets seem to be setting the example for how the holidays should be celebrated..relaxed and easy going. Everybody needs a little quiet time off. Merry Christmas to you and your entire family.

    Logan came by his math genes (or lack thereof) naturally. Dad even told me he failed algebra. I took the minimum amount of math required for my degree. You’re the only one who got any kind of math smarts. 🙂
