....and after the presents have been opened.....

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. We were extremely blessed this Christmas, but our blessings go far beyond the holiday.

After all the presents have been opened and the mess has been cleaned, we are left with the most precious gift; family, friends and our precious Savior. Things are nice but when it is all said and done, the love we share is what will last.

Here are pics of two of my precious jewels:

She's so interested in words and trying to read.
If you look carefully out the patio door in the upper right of the pic
you can see the white of a blizzard blowing snow.
It was reported that we received 14" of snow.

The wind was so bad that I had to put an old bedspread at the door to prevent
snow from coming in -- yeah right! I was shocked a short while after when Iopened the front door to see so much snow INSIDE the foyer!

Yummy suckers from their stockings.

And here is our sucker-eating-expert. I took this pic with my phone and he was hopping around so it's a little blurry, but notice the chunk of candy on his nose and on the front on his sweater. How he managed the candy on the nose, I'll never know! He's a never ending source of entertainment and sweeter than the sucker he was eating!

I am so thankful for the love that God gave us through the gift of his Son. Because Him, I have life -- abundantly!

Blessings to you,

Blessings to you too, Sherry!
You have such adorable little grandchildren. I'm so thankful for your time with them.
God is so good to us, isn't He?
I'm very thankful for the gift of friendship He gave to us. Who would ever have dreamed up a way for two people to meet and become such good friends? Only God!
The weather was crazy this past week. It sure altered a lot of plans, but God graciously took care of each of my family members and we were safe and warm and had plenty of food & electricity.
I can't wait for this next year to see what all God has in store for all my sweet blogging friends.
(Eph. 3:20)
I also can't wait for our upcoming trip. It'll be so much fun.
Love you Sherry!
