Merry Christmas!

What a wonderful day it has been celebrating!  Not the gifts, but the Giver. 

We have had a wonderful day spending it as a family also.  The entire family, my sister, brother-in-love, and father was over yesterday afternoon and evening.  It is always a busy and very noisy time, but very fun!

Daughter #1 and Grandson came over today.  We have had so much fun playing games.  One of the favorite games that one of our nesters received for Christmas is "Bananagram"!  Four of the siblings played it for 4 1/2 hours!  Very addicting!

However, six of us had started a new round of "Spot It" and we broke the dining room table!  Let's just say that a 100 year old table can only take so much!  It is a 11 1/2 foot table when extended...too small.  We had to remove the extended parts of the table and now it is 4 foot by 4 four foot WAY too small!  We had to bring in a small antique "kitchen" table to help accommodate for seating.  Not really sure how this is going to work out, but it is better than sitting on the floor!

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!

My Mother's Gentle Love

My Mother's Gentle Love
by Ron Hamilton
Who puts a band-aid on my knee?
Who holds me close so tenderly?
Who always sees the best in me?
There’s no one like mother.

Who always wipes my tears away?
Who tells me I’ll be great some day?
Who cares in such a gentle way?
There’s no one like mother.

My mother’s gentle love, my mother’s gentle love
Has taught me of God’s tender care, and turned my eyes above.
I’ll bless her all my days for all her gentle ways.
Oh, how I thank my Lord above for my mother’s gentle love.

Today is my mother's viewing, and tomorrow is her funeral.  The song above so much describes my mom.  She loved her four children so very much!  Before she had children, she was a nurse for "special care" babies~~"old" term for NICU.  Once she started having children she gave up her career to stay at home and raise her own babies. Thanks, Mom!

Thank you, Daddy, for allowing Mom to stay at home and raise us four children!

Graduation 2017 Post

Finally, here are pictures from Son #6 and Daughter #5's graduation.  I finally figured out what I was doing wrong downloading pictures!!

They Said "I Do" and Here We Grow Again!!

"I do!"  Lovely words.  Son #4 and Bride were married on the 31st of March.  After weeks of planning they are finally married and home from their honeymoon!  (pictures to follow soon)   We are pleased to have a new daughter in the family!

Speaking of new...yes, a new babe is growing...Daughter #1 and Son-in-love #1 are expecting their second child in the fall!  Grandson E told us!  At first we just looked at him, dead silence in the room, and looked at his momma...and she was smiling!  YAY!  Our "grand" total will be 11 come fall!!!!!!

Soon we will meet Granddaughter E...!  Eight weeks until her due date...but will probably meet her in the next few weeks!  Everyday in the womb is a day of victory!

That's all for now!  I have had to update this about 3 times!  It has been in my "save" for several weeks!  As soon as I get a few minutes of free time I will be back!
