When we traveled to the southern part of the state this weekend, we found that they had quite a bit more snow then we have up north. We were surprised. We are usually the ones getting all of the white stuff. We had nice traveling weather and was sure happy that we were able to attend our grandson's baby dedication Diana's families home church. It was a fun time.

Cool Night

Tonight is going to be a cool night. There seems to be a little moisture in the air. We don't have much snow, which is fine with me. I am looking forward to spring already. I know that there are many people that love winter but I am not one of them. I much prefer the nice, warm weather.

This past weekend there were several football games on television. Actually, I didn't watch any of them but the guys in the house had the games on pretty much all of the time. I was busy doing other things so I really didn't mind. I probably wouldn't have watched the games anyway.

Late Supper

Tonight Bill and I took down the Christmas decorations before we even thought about supper. That means that our meal is going to be pretty late. Supper is now in the oven, so by the time I get done with some posting it should be ready. We had left over ham from Christmas so we are having scalloped potatoes and ham. It sounds good to me.

Slick Roads

This morning the roads were very slick. We didn't have much snow at all but there seemed to be a layer of ice in town and on the highways. I heard there were several vehicles in the ditches in our area. Some people don't slow down like they should, resulting in problems. I guess I'd like to think that I am a cautious driver.

The House Is Quiet

We have had such a great time with all of the kids home. There have been 8 adults and 2 babies around for several days. Never a dull moment. We all get along great and totally enjoyed spending time with each other. Now everyone has left and Jake is the only one still here. He has gone to the city for the night and the house is quiet. It's seems strange to not hear babies, chatter and laughter. We may all get together again next weekend. :)

Christmas is such a wonderful time. It brings us back to the focus of what's really important. Remembering what Jesus Christ has done for us and celebrating His birthday. Our family was all together and two new family members besides. The babies were on their own schedules. Both opposite of each other. It was fun to watch.


There are times that it would be so nice to just clothes my eyes and take a nap. I remember back in kindergarten when we would have a snack of milk and cookies before laying down on our mats to rest before the remainder of the school day. It was probably wonderful for the teacher also to have all those little kids taking a little snooze. Some of the kids would sleep so soundly that it was hard for the teachers to wake them. Those were the days.

Babies Are Here!

We have been having such a great time with our family! They have all been home including the new little babies. We have been taking so many pictures. When we sit them together and take pictures, it sure reminds me of the past. They are so similar to Josh and Jenna when they were babies. Uncle Jake is sure proud! He loves those babies. What fun they are!

Do you ever feel like you are running out of ideas to post on? I admit that there are times when I need to stop and think about what I want to write about. Then, all of a sudden, I think of several things that I can go on and on about. There are so many things that occur during the day that are of interest to me and hopefully to other people also.


If you are someone that enjoys buying or selling gold bullion or other precious metals, you should check into the Monex Deposit Company. With this company you can purchase silver, gold or other precious metals and coins. They have made it convenient and user friendly.

You can purchase gold or silver in coin or ingot form. This is a great time to invest in gold or silver.


Whether we use a digital camera or video camera, we are going to be busy loading them up this Christmas. It will be fun to click and film away as we gather with family. With the new digital cameras it is easy to see if you have taken a good picture or not. It you have you keep it and if not, well you just delete it. It is so handy with all the new technology. And both the camera and video can be hooked up to the computer so we can share these memories with others.

There are many people who are torn on their thoughts about casinos. Some think they are simply a wonderful place to gather and socialize. Others feel strongly that there should be no casinos at all. In many states there are none, while in others they seem to be everywhere. There are some benefits financially to the surrounding area of the casino but there are also those that suffer financially due to the same facility. It does seem odd that casinos have pamphlets for those who are addicted to gambling but on the other hand are very glad that people come to be patrons. We definitely won't all agree on this subject and hopefully those that shouldn't be at a casino, won't be at a casino.

House Cleaning

With the family coming to my house soon I want to get the house in order. I usually clean on a certain day but this week I am going to clean when I can. It has been a busy week already and I figure that I will just clean as I have the opportunity. Bill will help too which will be a big help. Zoe gets her hair cut this week also but Bill can take her to the appointment.

Warm Weather

This week is supposed to be quite warm compared to what it has been. That is fine with me. I would like to get rid of some ice and snow. Plus, with Christmas traveling it will be nice to have clear roads to drive on. I agree with many others that it would be nice to have a little snow on Christmas but what we have already is enough for me.

Brag Books

We have been showing our brag books with grand babies pictures to everyone who will take the time to look at them. I told Bill he needed to carry the books all of the time. He went to the YMCA the other day and didn't have his books with him. He said he wished he had taken them because there were people there that hadn't seen the babies yet. He has learned since then to TAKE THE BOOKS.

Are you tired of getting all of the political phone calls? I sure am. Apparently since they aren't soliciting for money they can keep calling. I especially don't like getting recorded messages.

It is sad to see and hear much of the news today. Some of it really doesn't need to be mentioned because it just makes people fearful and depressed. There has been so much tragedy in the US lately with shootings and other criminal acts. Sometimes I think that people know that they will be in the news if they commit crimes. They really shouldn't get the attention that they do.

Home For Christmas

We are so thrilled and thankful that all the kids will be home for Christmas. I know it is hard when they have other family to consider. We want them to know that we will work around their schedules so they don't have to be stressed about trying to get to our house and in-laws too.

New Ring

I got my Christmas present early this year. Bill bought me a new diamond for my wedding ring. He is always good to get me things that I really enjoy and people who know me realize that I like jewelry. I think I am pretty easy to buy for. Usually I show Bill what I want so it is pretty simple for him.


I know it isn't the most pleasant job in the winter time but Bill has been keeping up with the shoveling pretty well. It was hard to get the ice off the driveway but it looks much better. Our driveway opens towards the northeast and doesn't get a lot of sunshine like other parts of the yard.

Walt Disney World Tickets

Well, I don't know about you, but I find it confusing trying to figure out where to purchase tickets for attractions and researching all of the information on different shows and parks.

Kohl's Wrapping Paper

With Christmas almost here, there are all kinds of prints and thicknesses to the wrapping paper out there today. We started out buying some rolls from one store. A couple of the rolls were way to thin and one roll smelled like some type of fuel. We returned it. Then we went and purchased some paper at Kohl's. We really liked it and we got a great price on it. That's were we'll be buying our wrapping paper from now one.


We were shopping in Sears today. We hadn't been in there for quite sometime. It is on the other side of town and we just don't seem to get over there. We were very pleased with what we found. Bill had fun in the tool area and we both had a good time in the baby department. There are so many cute things for little ones. It was hard choosing.

You will like it.

Little Heater

We have used a small electric heater in our home. I don't think it is very efficient but it serves a purpose during the very cold weather. It is something that we can keep in the closet until we want to use it. It didn't cost much either. We also tend to use blankets to cover with while watching television at night. It is nice to be warm.


I know that it is early to say but I am already tired of the politics on the television and radio. The candidates can really get nasty with each other. I wish we didn't even need a president. So many times you hear the backbiting, complaining about each other and negative thoughts. I think that the media is pretty much slanted towards a particular side when it comes to elections. I won't say which side that is but I am sure you can guess.

Small Flakes

We are fortunate to have just small snow flakes falling this afternoon. We have probably gotten a couple inches of snow but it has fallen gently and the wind isn't blowing which makes it much better. Bill shoveled the deck and driveway and it didn't take long to do. There was a storm advisory until 6pm but I don't think it got as bad as some thought it would.

Well, another weekend comes to an end. It was sure fun to see Scott, Jen and Kaelyn this weekend. They came and stayed and went to church with us today. Kaelyn is such a sweetie. She is changing and growing so fast. I think she looks like her daddy a lot, but she also has a lot of her mommy. Boy, grand babies are fun. Sure wish Emry, our grand son, was closer. We'll be seeing him very soon!

Well, it was my birthday the other day and Bill asked if I wanted to go out for supper. The other option was that he would make one of my favorite meals at home. That meal consists of meatballs and fried potatoes. Of course, I chose the homemade meal. It was awesome. I know I have told many people over the years that Bill is a good cook but I am saying it again. It was a great Birthday and I thanked the Lord for another birthday.

Online Orders

Sometimes it is pretty handy to buy things online. Not having to drive to the store, whether it is in town or out,is nice. I trust several of the stores online. I generally don't have any problems with them, although Bill just reminded me that we are waiting for some things that we ordered. I guess we need to call the company and see where our order is.

Care Homes

For a while now we have seen my husband's mother failing. She has Alzheimer's and no longer knows who anyone is. She is quiet and confused. When his dad passed away a year and half ago, we knew that she would need constant care and could not be left a lone. I wish at that time we would have known about the support that is available now to those searching for answers to important questions while going through the process. Bettercaring is a service that is there for you. They can help with questions you may have about care homes or just give you some information you were not aware of. It can help to set up the kind of care you want for your loved one. They have daily news and views where you can receive ideas from some of the experts in the field.

Getting Dark

It is about 7PM and already it seems to be dark out. Maybe it is just the weather outside today. It is very dark in the morning and it does tend to get dark early right now. On snowy days like this it would be nice to just stay in the house. I don't enjoy walking out of work and having it dark already. I feel like the day is gone.

Credit Card

A person will often find that they will receive many opportunities to apply for a credit card through the mail. I know that when I receive them I am never quite sure what they are all offering and if it is legitimate. Now there is a credit card search engine where a person can browse and compare all different kinds of credit card offers and reward cards. They are available for people with bad to average credit. Whether you are a business person, student or just a consumer it's definitely worth checking out. There are offers from leading U.S. Credit Card issuers like J.P. Morgan Chase, Bank of America, Visa, MasterCard, Discover and more. It's made easy and is a time saver. Browse this site for yourself.

Outside Decorations

I love having decorations outside, during all of the seasons. Bill is pretty helpful but he doesn't like to attach things to the house. I guess I can't blame him because it can leave holes in our new siding. The icicle lights we use on the gutter don't hurt anything but we want to keep the siding looking nice. I think maybe we will decorate without putting holes in the house.


I enjoy Thanksgiving and getting together with family. It is important to me to remember that we have much to be thankful for. It is a time to thank God for the many blessings we have and to share with others. Some think of this time of year as end of harvest, beginning of fall or a multitude of other things but most of all let us remember why we are here on earth. Let us be thankful.

Buy Baby Gifts

With having two new grandchildren, I have really been enjoying shopping and want to buy baby gifts. There are so many cute things out there and I am getting handier with online shopping, which makes life easier for me also.

Exercise While On Vacation

Do you continue your exercise program even when you are vacationing? I don't always but when we visited Josh and his family recently I did try to keep up with a light workout. It was difficult because we had so many choices of what to eat because of the large area we were in. I also wanted to spend as much time with Josh, Di and Emry that I could so I had to squeeze the workouts in when I could. It was just something I had to do.
