Family and 2015

Lina and Dalton

Wedding in June!  Amazing couple.  Love them both sooo much.

 Selfie of me and Jim.  Still in love after all these years.
 Lexi and Ryan
Granddaughter and boyfriend...So cute!  So proud of them both and so glad they found happiness.
Daughter Michele and Ronnie.  She is a piece of my heart!
Son John and his pool table.
He is a piece of my heart!
Lina on the drum...Very convincing.  Love that girl!

We had a wonderful time at Son John's house on Christmas Day.  Thank You John.  We ate, talked, and played pool.  The guys watched a game and the gals talked.  I always end my day with a full heart when I am with my kids, husband and grandkids.   I hope you all had a Merry Christmas and will have a Happy New Year!

The Reason For the Season

Winter has arrived and I plan to hibernate until Spring. Not really but almost.   I love to stay in and paint...or quilt...or draw...or maybe even clean my house.

This year we are planning to have our Christmas celebration at my son John's home.  I am so excited to go there as are the other members of the family.  He has been redecorating and it's going to be his unveiling. 

 I have been baking cookies and will be making some dishes and the ham to take to John's home.  I can't tell you how much I love Christmas and giving gifts.  I never forget that this season is about the birth of Christ.  I am so grateful that I have been forgiven because I have made so many mistakes in my life.  Now my life is so good and maybe I won't make so many mistakes any more.  I will do my best.
These pics are of the yard around my home.  The snow is gone now but I'm sure it will come back.  The snow is so beautiful, especially when I don't have anywhere I have to go.

Winter 2014

I haven't posted since September.  My Mother passed away and I seemed to have lost my energy for creativity.  But..It must have returned because I painted my first watercolor for a long time.  This is on Watercolor Workshop on Facebook.
