Christmas and Mystery Update!

My Jim Shore Collection

Our Christmas was very quiet and relaxing.  Our tradition is to go next door to see what Santa brought three of our granddaughters, Leah, Rachel and Marlee.  (Now 24, 20, and 11!)  And we get a delicious breakfast, too!  Thanks to our daughter, Laurie.

This year we went to church.  One service, and the sanctuary was packed with families worshiping together on the morning of our Savior's birth.  

Then our second Christmas morning tradition, to visit our daughter-in-law and three more grandchildren. (Mary Claire - 15, Grey - 11 and Cooper - 7)  Then it was back home.

January 1, 2009

This was the last time all of the grandchildren were here at one time.  We now have two college graduates, five in college, a senior...and the youngest wasn't even born yet!  (and yes, I know what grade they all are in plus their birthdays, and their names!)

En Provence Clue #5

I have stayed caught up with Bonnie Hunter's Mystery this year!  Guess being retired does have it's perks!  Today is the Mystery Link-up where you can go visit the others who are participating and see what progress they are making.  The next clue will be on Friday!  Wonder if we'll finally get to the green and gold fabrics?

Until next time....


  1. You have a sharp mind keeping all those grand's birthays and grades up to date. I don't see how you do it!

  2. What an impressive bunch, they must bring you great joy. The greens and yellows are proving elusive.
