New Traditions


 One year older!

One more year of joy,

 One more year of love,

 One more celebration.

I had one of my best celebrations, yet!
Dinner, presents with CAKE AND PIE!
Both were lemon!!!
Oh, Kimmy knows me so well.

After dinner, we jumped into the the van and headed to our neighboring town,
to walk around and enjoy all the 
Christmas Lights.

We bundled up and were so excited to be out and about with so many others, enjoying the excitement of Christmas.

And this was on a Tuesday night!


 It was like one big party

I think we have started a new tradition!


 Well, I got "It "!  
I was down for about a week.
 I wasn't going to put up our Christmas Tree, but then reinforcements came!
Our grand daughters were so much help.
Not only did they put up the tree but decorated the house.
They did such a wonderful job. We all had fun! 

Banjo is happy!
His first Christmas with us.

New tradition has been started.


How blessed am I?
Ila May came over to help make Christmas cookies
 for our Christmas Eve Service, at church.

I love all this help. 
I have always said, it about making memories!

Another new tradition!


"Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything."

James 1:2-4
