I haven't blogged in awhile. It seems like I haven't been motivated lately to take pictures or to post them. But while I was thinking back on our Christmas fun, I thought I would post a few things and share what is happening in this New Year so far.
I still have my Christmas tree up...and it is already January 10th! This is nothing new for me...I often leave it up until the middle of January, and I keep enjoying it as long as I can...plugging the lights in every morning and leaving them on until I go to bed. (I'm lazy yes...but I am still enjoying it!)
On the Saturday after Christmas we had our family gathering. We had 23 of us together for crockpots full of Beef and Noodles at lunch time with a frozen strawberry side dish, and my girls brought a yummy spinach dip with crusty bread...and also a veggie tray with yummy yogurt dip. We also had coffee, and brownies, and cherry and pumpkin pies with whipped cream...and munchies like cheese and crackers and chips...and Christmas candies sitting around, so we grazed on the food as we went through the day and evening.
When everyone arrives,...lots of silliness goes on...especially when my daughter Lynnette goes around snapping pictures!
He who is of a merry heart has a continual feast.
We had Uncle Dan with us this year (In the recliner on the right), and two days later he was in ICU with out- of- control blood sugar levels. But he is out now, and doing better! I am thanking God that he didn't go into a coma or die...since they told him his blood sugar levels were over 900. (Isn't that awful?!!!) I am so glad he recovered.
Since the New Year began, the kids are back in school, and the guys are back to work. Our daughter Lonna is interviewing for a couple of jobs...one on Friday, and then another on Monday. Please pray that she will do well on the interviews and that she will get the one that God wants for her. (Thanks!)
We have had some 50 degree days since Christmas, and my husband has even gone golfing a few times in this New Year! He plans to do a lot more in the coming Spring....Lord willing. He enjoys it when he is feeling good.
The Kraft family sold their house and have purchased another one since Christmas....since Kyle's work is now in the Kansas City area.
They will be moving in the first part of February. It was built in 2011.
The rest of our family will love going to visit them too, as there are a lot of things to do in the Kansas City area....and we will be missing them so much! We have all lived close these last several years. (For a few years our daughter Lisa and her family lived in Manhattan Kansas, but they have lived in our town, a mile away for about 15 years now.) Yes, we have been blessed.
Life is full of changes, and we all go through them at one time or another. Some are pleasant, and some are not. I have a good friend in town this week from Arizona, who just lost her brother-in-law, so she is here helping her sister. Please pray for the Butterfield/Steinbuchel families as they grieve. And on a brighter note, this same friend, Toni, is going to be a grandma again, and her daughter just announced it! So as I said, life is full of changes! (:>)
New life in the New Year...New Adventures! God is good!
May we all grow closer to our Lord in 2013.
