The Carolers

Dear James and Meagan,

Here are the Carolers. We thought the children needed to get some fresh air.

Feathers or freeze?

I found this limb in our yard and wonder what it is. I spotted another as well. It reminds me of the time we had frozen rain in our trees. We had to knock it off as branches couldn't take all the weight.

Julie/Judy....The perfect houseguest.

Joe just returned from airport My sister Judy is on her way back to Studio City, Ca.
She helped me do our Christmas cards. So people, don't expect the perfect handwriting next year,
It will be back to my scribble.
Judy came to attend our brothers memorial mass. It still hasn't sunk in that he is gone
However, I do appreciate seeing many family members.

The Day of Blessings

Funeral mass for Corky was today. It was well attended. It is always sad to lose a loved one.
The only positive is visiting with Julie/Judy. She is the perfect house guest and I will miss her.

Here are a few photos we took  this afternoon.

Christmas Helpers

Thanks to James and Meagan we have the lights in the field. This involves pounding in stakes and
attaching 198 ft. of lights. This is not only decorative but it saves cars from getting stuck in the very wet field.  It also saves the field from massive ruts.

If that wasn't enough, James also cleaned off the roof and blew the soggy leaves and fir needles off the driveway.
Still more. Meagan championed the challenge of figuring out how to put the tree together.
We all helped put on the branches (mostly James and Meagan) Then lights and garlands on the tree.
Now all I have to do is  finish it off with the  (many, many)  ornaments.

I also put the pizzas in the oven. Wow!  I also had to buy them at the store! Double wow!
