~We got to go see our Dear Friends the Boardmans for a few days. It was JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED!
~Having a Blast being together!!~
~Phillip pulled the kids on the sled behind the 4 wheeler. ~
(Kara and Bethany are the ones that came to study Spanish in Argentina and stayed with us for a month. We have a pile of FUN MEMORIES from those days together!! )~
Here we are singing "We Wish you a Merry Christmas outside Daddy and Moma's door.~
Then she expressed that I was the TALLEST! :-) (I'm sure that Moma and Lyn will LOVE MARY!!)~
~And here's a pic of my Christmas Decor on the dash of our vehicle. :-) ~
~We took a trip to Tennessee to see my Grandmother who is 93. I'll post pics of that soon.~
~My Dear B-in-law Daryl and my Sweet Sister Laura and their family invited us
over for New Year's.
What a fun time we had in their cozy home.
My sweet niece Brittany and I.~
~Kimberly and little Abigail sporting her little hot pink leather boots.~
This is THE BEFORE PIC OF Abigail's nursery...It had become a STASH-ALL room.
~My Sweetheart bought me a metal shelf for my pantry downstairs! WHAT A BLESSING TO HAVE SOMEWHERE TO PUT MY BIG COOKER, STOCK POT, CROCKPOT, GRIDDLE, ICE CHESTS, ETC.!
(The Meijer bucket has flour in it. :-) ~
(While still in Argentina, Phillip let me order this sweet Christmasy apron as a gift to me from him. ~
Elijah and his snowman. ~
Here's what popped into my head... These 2 shelves.
I'm feeling pretty happy with this outcome!~
One day my sweet heart surprised me and bought me a nice metal clothes rack to hang my dresses and skirts on.
So my niece Darla helped me move the dresses and long skirts out of the closet in our room and hang them on my new rack, and then we put the shorter blouses/blazers in the closet, which lets me utilize the space in the bottom of my closet as well. :-)
Sure, a beautiful armoire closet would be lovely, but since I don't have that kind of dough, I'm happy with my metal clothes rack. ~
SHE CALLED IT...." 'no!" ~
We hadn't seen them in over a year! (When we first got back our kids had one virus and their's another, so we kept our distance until all were well. :-)
Abigail and Joshua MEET!~
So, Michael and Beth got this fun cake for K and N ...and wouldn't let us pay them back!!!~
It appears like SHE COULDN'T GO ON A.N.Y.M.O.R.E.!!! :-) ~
One of them is when we can throw some quick snacks or food together and just hang out at their house or ours.
Another one...is getting suckers delivered to your Door by your cousin Bryan. (Elijah was THRILLED!) ~
I'd love to have somewhere to hide these bins, (one of my friends has some old school lockers in which to hide her boys toys) but hey, for now, at least it's organized!! :-) ~
She LOVED it and would giggle with glee while waiting for me to fill it up for her.
Yep, I do believe she must be her Mother's daughter. :-)
