Children grow up to fast. In just a year we have seen our grandchildren go from babies to toddlers. They are now beginning to walk all over the place. Emry is showing how he can carry his drink around without using his hands. He's doing pretty good with the walking also.

It has been special and fun this year with having small children to buy for. They are so much fun! I hadn't been down a toy aisle for quite sometime. toys have somewhat changed since my children were young. They are offering items I have never seen before. It has been an exciting time for us.

Many of us have our opinion on a variety of things in our lives. I feel that is OK and we all have a right to those opinions. However, if you are voicing that opinion and are hurting someone in the process, then maybe it's better to hold your tongue. At times people find themselves speaking before they think. We have all been guilty of that at some point in our lives. The tongue can be sharp and we should learn to control it.

Las Vegas Hotels

Now that the cold winter weather is upon us, we begin thinking about taking a vacation to a warmer climate. Las Vegas comes to mind. There is a gal that just returned from a trip out there and the weather looked great! She had some snap shots at a hotel in las vegas and it was beautiful. There is a lot to see and do. We may have to plan that trip soon.

Christmas Ham

For our family Christmas dinner we are going to have a ham. We have prepared it different ways, but one of our favorite ways is putting it in the crock pot with a can of pineapple and letting it cook for several hours. It is extremely good. We will have cheesy potatoes and a vegetable too. We can't go without dessert although I am not sure what we will be making yet. Probably a chocolate pie. We look forward to the meal.

New Shows

Many of the new television shows have been enjoyable to watch. We like House, CSI and Cold Case the best. Even some of the repeats are good because many of them we have not seen. We record some of the shows on the DVR. We have the unit set to record only new shows. With our busy schedules it is sometimes hard to get them all watched.

Computer Issues

Have you ever had computer problems of any kind? I am sure you have. Our laptop works well most of the time. There are times when it over heats and shuts down. It can run all night long and never shut off but frequently, when sitting on my lap, it will just turn off. After it cools down it works fine. If you have any thoughts of how to correct this problem please let me know.

Bill and I went out to a movie after church on Sunday. When we got home he said that he wanted to make me supper. So as I sat in the office typing I could hear him in the kitchen working away. He wouldn't tell me what he was preparing, but I could smell it as I worked. It was making me hungry. He's quite the special guy.

A New Hat

Here's our little sweetie! Emry is one years old and has a mouth full of teeth already. He was busy modeling his new head wear for his trip back to Iowa, soon. Where he lives, he is not in need of such warm accessories. I hope we have some snow on the ground so that we can take the grand kids out and play in it some. It should be a lot of fun!
