Cashing In

Tom and I gave out Gift Certificates for
Christmas Presents, to our four older 

It was for an overnight;
Dinner of their choice;
Movie of their choice;
Breakfast of their choice;
Plus lots of FUN!

First one to cash in on his certificate was,
 7yr. old Silas
The first thing he asked to do was to have,
Cinnamon Toast.

Silas loves Banjo!
He spent a lot of time with our dog.
Here he is with Papa, taking Banjo for a walk.

When it was lunch time, 
it was a hard decision to make.
[Do I eat in the restaurant, or back at home in the RV?]

Panda Express
was Silas' choice for lunch.

Silas choose to eat in the RV!
But the battery was dead. 
So we came inside.

But that didn't bother him.
This is one very happy boy!

After lunch Silas wanted to go to a park.
But it's not fun by yourself, so he
invited his older brother, Levi.

Then they came back for a few rounds of games.

After a fun afternoon,
we settled down for pizza and a movie.

When it was bedtime,
Silas choose the couch, along with Banjo.

Good morning!
Breakfast time!

Here is Silas making his breakfast.
Cinnamon Toast!

Some of the biggest grapes I've ever seen.
They looked like small watermelons.

This is one very happy boy!

He wanted to eat on the counter.
And of course we said yes.

The things you didn't see were all the hugs and kisses
that were handed out, back and forth.
Fun and cute conversations.
Facetime with mom, 
making sure she didn't miss him to much.

Our mission accomplished!
It was a great time for all of us.
 I don't know who had more fun, 
Tom & I or Silas. 

Love You Silas!

Hello 2021🎉

I tried to get a picture of ALL of the kids with glasses on.
Either, they are getting faster or I'm getting slower..haha!

Sledding, snowball throwing, snowboarding and just enjoying time together in the great outdoors.

What was amazing, are the hills. They are just right outside of our door!
Hungry or thirsty?...go inside and pop back out.
Tired?... go inside for awhile, even snooze a bit.
Cold?... again, go inside until you get warm enough.
All this and we even had the neighborhood all to ourselves.

Everyone had their favorite way of having fun!

The pictures above are Ila May riding down on top of  Levi.

Isaac was taking a break on a snow mound. 

Papa and Nathan

The local deer come out to play.


Memories are made in McCall.

Here's to a New Year!

God is so good!


"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in faith so that you overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."

Romans 15:13

Christmas 2020

Yes, we saw it!
The Christmas Star!

This picture was taken from our from porch.
Look closely, up in the sky!

Below is a little information about the significance and about God's design.

"Jupiter and Saturn will line up on Dec. 21, so close together that they’ll appear as one bright shining star. Many are referring to it as the “Christmas Star.” It’s the closest the two planets have appeared together in about 800 years, and won’t occur again until 2080.
This conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn may have an even closer tie to the Biblical story of the birth of Jesus Christ than its occurrence so close to Christmas this year. As noted by Johannes Kepler in the 17th century, a similar conjunction occurred in 7 BCE and could be the astronomical origin of the Star of Bethlehem  that guided the wise men."

~ Astronomy Magazine ~



Every year, Kimmy and I get together at her home to stuff stockings!
It's a great way to relax and go over the plans for Christmas.
We always end up laughing about something.
It's a great stress reducer.

Ten Stockings!

Another year of fun and surprises for everyone.


Everyday Banjo and I go for a walk.
Most days are the same but somedays we meet up with other regular walkers. Or we come across something fun or different.
Like apples that have fallen,
 that the ducks love to eat.

Banjo just watches them.

Other times it's the different secrecy.

Today on our walk, I came across a "sign".
Neighborhood boys put up this homemade sign.

It says.
" Snow Shovelers, 
any price
appt. not nessary      just call 
___-_______ to set up."

How cute is this.
Now we just need some snow.

Merry Christmas !!
and Peace on Earth


"Thanks be to God for his incredible gift!"

2 Corinthians 9:15
