Hello to all,
We went to church this morning , our grandson Bruce, his wife Jill,and their baby Brandan,
went with us. We enjoyed the service. We came home, had lunch together, now guess we will just relax for the rest of the evening. I'm on the pc and my husband is watching tv.
It is still cold out, so not much to do out side, just stay in where it is warm.
Blessings to all Love Katie

Wednesday morning,and 8 more days till Christmas Day.....

Good morning dear friends, hope everyone is well. We are all o.k at our house!
Thank the Lord for our many blessings.
Not much news to tell here ,but it is cold today,guess we will stay inside a lot! Since we are giving photos for Christmas gifts to our children, and grandchildren this year there's not much wrapping of gifts to do. I have just been trying to put them in frames for everyone. I used to fix bags of fruit ,nuts, and candy, for all the kids, I still may do that! I know when I was a child I always looked forward to my Christmas stocking,filled with all those goodies. We always did that ,for our little ones too. Of course then ,we all figured Santa came and filled them (smile). Guess, today I'll start thinking about what to cook for Christmas dinner,for when the kids all stop by. Some of them fix dinner at their house for all their kids , but I'm sure they will come by later to eat some of Mom's cooking. Also,all the grandchildren, know that Granny and Grandad will be waiting for all those hugs. Tis the Season, so everyone, have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Love to all, God loves you too....Blessings,Katie

~Well,yes it's Friday again......

Hello, dear friends,hope everyone is well, and staying warm.
It is cold here to day, nice sunshine, but the wind is cold.
It's 20 days until Christmas! I have done some decorations,
but still have not put my tree up,I think I'll put a small tree up
this year. We don't have a lot of space for our big one.
My husband and I, went to have our pictures made for Christmas,
To give for gifts, to our children, and grandchildren this year.
It had been awhile since we had studio photos made.
So we decided now would be a good time to have that done!
I think they will all like them. We wish you all a very Merry
Christmas, and a Happy new year.

Blessings to all.....

Love ,Katie
