Hello my dear friends,
Well,it is cold again tonight. Hope this finds everyone staying warm and well!
We are doing ok , We had some of our family come for a visit with us today after church.
Our daughter Shelley and her husband Loyd , their son J.W., and their son Thomas, his wife Larissa, their daughterYanis, and little son Colton. Also,our youngest son David, his wife Minnie, and their oldest daughter Cheyenne. Their other daughter, and son were at home. Our son Larry and his friend were here too . And our daughter Debra, and her daughter , Rana
(our grandaughter) came up from Dallas. We all exchanged gifts, and just had a very good time !
Today was my Mom's birthday,but she has been gone to live with Jesus, for a very long time. I think of her often, and have such wonderful memories, of her and my Dad too.
Many blessings to all. Again Merry Christmas , Happy New Year !
Love, Katie

P.S. Our wonderful memories seem to really come around at this time of the year
especially. Dont you agree?
Also,I thought I would share some pictures of my Christmas decorations!

Family time is the best time, that's for sure! You are so right about the memories flooding back during this time of year. We had wonderful Christmases when I was growing up and we didn't have a whole lot of money (I didn't realize this until I was an adult). My parents were very good at making it special and it even seemed magical.

You have a very Merry Christmas, too!

Take care.

Hi Mom,your Christmas tree and decorations are very pretty. I really enjoyed the visit with you and Dad. Thank you so much for the "Anne of Green Gables" movies. I am going to enjoy watching them.
Stay warm in this cold weather...

Love you much,Shelley
