Christmas 2009

A snowstorm did not keep us from celebrating Christmas together up at my Mom's in Hayward, WI. It is the first time in a long time Mom and Ray were home with us and not in Arizona. My Aunt Gail, Uncle Chet and Grandpa also join us. We had a wonderful time playing games, eating, and just being together. Ribeye steaks on the grill can be our new tradition as far as I'm concerned!

Here are some of gang waiting to play
the dice game. I think Andy liked the
dice game better than the Auction!

Grandpa all bundled up ready to head
back home. Glad you could join us Grandpa!

Ray and Mom with another message for their

Group Shot!

We celebrated Christmas with Natalie, Zack and Becky on Saturday. Natalie learned a new trick. They call it her Popeye face. Becky said she made this face in almost all the pictures she took of her over Christmas.


Here she is digging into her Stocking

She's playing with her new radio

Here is my husband out shoveling our driveway.
When we got home on Friday someone had plowed
us out. Praise God because the little shoveling
Kelly did almost killed him. It great to have
such wonderful neighbors!!

Less than two months ago we were standing here
having a going away bonfire with Shane.

It's hard to believe Christmas is over and we are rounding the corner to 2010. Our flights are booked to San Diego so we at least get to go somewhere warm for a little bit this winter. The best part is we'll be bringing Shane home with us even if it's for only two weeks.
Have a Happy New Year!!

  1. Say" hi" to San Diego when you land, it's such a pretty airport to land at, my sis lives about 20 minutes away from there! Earl
