Grand Christmas

Christmas has come and gone in a single 24-hours. Preparations that began so many weeks ahead are over as well. We hope that your memories of time with family and friends lasts into the New Year.

We did not visit with the grandkids at Christmas, but will see them next week. Their mom emailed photos of grandson Bobby in his “handsome” clothes (his words) and granddaughter Ellie.
These photos warmed our hearts.

Adorable babies. We skyped with our daughter and her kids. Our three year old grandson was squiting us with his new fire truck hose. We pretended to be getting wet. It was so much fun. We got to see the rest of our family. Technology helps when we can't. Have fun with the visits coming up.

sometimes we get all frustrated with technology when we dont understand or something happens. BUT WOW! What a Hallmark moment, you seeing the kids sleeping then were able to see the open gifts... NOW that is special. THey are growing so fast, slow them down will ya!

GOOD to know you had a good and safe Christmas.

HOPE your New Year will be as well.
