Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to all

Hope all are at least mindful of the true meaning of Christmas and this finds everyone as well as can be expected for all of you and your family members.

We are pretty good, had grandgirl for 6 days as she was ill and had to be here as her mom had to work.

We have had a whole lot of snow and that meant lots of plowing.

We had our Christmas dinner last night on Christmas Eve. We had 17 counting hubby and I. Wish more could have made it but we understand. Some just want to be at their own homes and we understand that also.

One of the older grand girls brought her new little boy up and hubby. My mom is a great, great grand, she was here, brought up by one of our daughters. Five of the family members had car pooled up in our daughter T's 4 wheel drive pickup. 
Hope all are having as good a Christmas season as you can. Happy New Year to come.

Merry Christmas to All, Our Tree is Up.

The tree is a little odd, but it's ours :) The temperature dropped to 7 degrees late this afternoon. Dh was plowing the new snowfall out of the driveway, and said no wonder it felt so cold lol.

Tree time.

Our tree is a combo of store bought and what the kidlets made through the years.

The dogs were exhausted lol

Snow, Sleet. Rain, Ice, Mud

Yep, we have gone from -2 to this week in the low 40's and melted to mud. We have had, lots of snow, sleet, ice and now dogs wallowing in mud. It is supposed to snow again starting tomorrow. Next week we will be back to the 20's for highs.

We have been trying to figure out what to do for family members this Christmas and we think we have got that on the go. Now have to mail some things out.

We found the all the Christmas boxes and have to put a tree up yet. We have been setting out our decorations. I think we will get a fresh tree from our woods.

I ended up with some kind of infection in my left eye and woke up with fluid all around my eye and swollen. Been using warm and cold compresses on it. At least it isn't hurting like it did yesterday. A great relief. I just hope it doesn't go into my right eye, which is starting to feel funny tonight. ACK.
