January snow

It will be two weeks tomorrow since I posted my blog, so I better get on top of it.  We did get snow on the night of the 9th.  We got three inches.  Unlike the snow we usually get around here this was here almost a week.  It was the pretty kind of snow that sticks to the branches!






Josh came over and spent a couple of days with us before he went back to school.  Erik and Mark drove him back to college.  They got a caving trip in before they returned home.

Matt and our future daughter-in-law, Amy came down last weekend.  It was nice to get to know Amy a little more.  We had only briefly met her one morning up in KY at the end of our visit with Laurie and family.  Amy lives in Richmond, VA and Matt met her at a convention he was working at in Richmond.  Isn’t it interesting how God arranges these things?  They are planning a wedding sometime next summer.


Matt and Amy left early this morning, and they were driving to Richmond.  Tomorrow Matt will drive back home in No. KY.

Mom is still with us and we are enjoying her visit.

Howard is working on a cherry pencil post bed for our bedroom.  It is going to be beautiful when it is done.

2011

My grandson, Josh, has been giving me rough time about not posting on my blog.  So, I’m going to try and post a couple times a month this year.  Maybe I will be able to keep up with that.

We had a good Christmas break.  Can you have a break if you are retired?

Josh had his wisdom teeth pulled on the 20th.  He did pretty good with the process.  He looked a little like a chipmunk for a couple of days.

My mom flew in from Montana on the evening of the 20th.  It has been good to have her here.  We have enjoyed making candy, decorating Christmas cookies and having friends come in.




I had surgery on the 23rd to remove an enlarged lymph node under my chin.  The pathology report came back with NO lymphoma. 

We’ve had snow twice this month.  We actually got snow on Christmas Day.  That is the first time in 17 years.  Our snow only last a couple of days, so it’s not bad at all.



We went over to Larry’s on Christmas Eve after church.  It was a fun time of eating and just being together.  Christmas day, Larry’s family came over here for dinner and presents.  Josh went over to their house to spend the week.

We all met at Hickory Falls for my birthday on the 27th. 





Today I put up my snowmen.  Cheryl quilted me the mantle cover for my fire place.  She did such a beautiful job.
