The Year 2022 !!

Our family celebrated New Years 
up in McCall.

Snow, snow and more snow.

Cold...very cold!

We played in the snow and walked 
to town.

Getting ready for the celebration is always fun.

We try on our costumes and get
our pictures taken.

The group pictues is taken earlier
in the evening because some
of us, can't stay up that late.

While we waited for the count down,
we play games.
This one, is a roll of the dice to see how many 
turns you get to unroll the 
plastice wrap ball.
The ball is filled with toys, candy, money and coupons.

The goodies are rolled all the way through the ball.
With every turn you get a surprise!

The excitement is contagious.
When it's over, you can trade with someone.
That's when the real excitement starts!!!

It's almost time to start the count down.
So we head outside with pots & pans 
and utencils to bang with.

This has been a tradition that started with
my dad, when he would babysit
Kimmy and Todd on New Years.
Kimmy has continued the "pot banging" ever since,
Levi: "What size pan do you want? 
  Huge or medium?"

Another year over 
another year started!

Until next New Year's Eve!

Now, it's time to clean up.


"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old is gone and the new is here."

2 Corinthians 5:17

💓 Family 💓

We celebrated my 70th birthday with a catered dinner.
Put on by our friends who own,

We got all dressed up.

The weekend was FULL of playing with each other and
of course eating.

Levi (12 yrs) and Trey (9 yrs), will soon by taller then me!

It was nice to get some one-on-one time 
 with each visitor.

Sometimes it was best to take it easy.

For the cousins, it was non-stop 
activites and playing.

Saying good-bye is always so hard!
Tears and promises!

Fall Wrap Up

A quick  review of my Fall ...

A friend came and stayed with us for several days.
We don't get many visitors. 
Anita is a friend from the Seattle area.
We met at church years ago. 

Growing flowers is a "growing'" passion.
New to my garden this year, were Dalilah's.
Good choice!

Tom and I always enjoy a date, 
driving with the top down.
This time is was out in Farm County.

Things are growing.
Boys and eggs!
Here is Levi (12 yrs) 
Isaac ( 5yrs).

Sunflower seeds are shucked and roasted.
A lot of dirty work but delicious.
Way to go Kimmy.

Saying Good-bye to the Hummers
until next year.

An abundance crop this year.
Family, friends and neighbors 
all received  plenty. 

 I enjoy growing roses, roses and more roses.

What we didn't grown in our own garden, 
we bought at the Red Barn
A local vegetable market.

my favorite time of year.
It ends way to soon.


"The grass withers,
 the flowers fade, 
but the word of God will stand forever."

Isaiah 40:8
