April 2017 Catch up

So continuing last year, yes I'm that far behind but I'm determined to catch up and one day soon I'll be blogging in current time. Last year we were lucky enough to witness a mama Robin lay a few eggs on our mailbox, there were three eggs of the most beautiful color in the nest that remained but soon they too just disappeared, so sad

Christmas Memories

I know , it's been a long time but I wanted to add more photos from Christmas of 2017 just for the record in case I ever print this in a book one day which could happen since I like my photo books too which reminds me I've not done one in a long time either so hopefully soon.

Just check out how Christmas day started out. It was a full on snow storm and we didn't think we were getting out of the house at all but eventually it did clear out and people gathered and we still had a great day opening presents, having fun and being together.

these beautiful and tasty cookies are mom's cookies, wish Christmas was all year round so she could make these more often, so yummy

it's amazing that half the kids now have their own kids

happy 2018

Enjoying Christmas Eve 2017

The snow fell hard, it was beautifully white everywhere. The trees were magical. We joined a nice party at our daughter's Sherie's place. She put out the spread of food, the place was nicely decorated, of course it has been decorated for months beforehand. Sherie just likes to have a festive mood all the time. It's just her thing. That evening there were a few quite a few kids there and they all opened some presents. It was fun to watch, especially our little ones, our grandsons, Brandon and Jaxon and our Maya. Everyone had something to open but what was most important was that our family and friends spent the night together. Of course this is only some of the family and we'll see more or them on Christmas Day.

Buddy is missing his brother Junior this Christmas and so are we.

For the little ones it was all about when will we open the presents and finally they did.
