Celebrate the Magic

Celebrate the Magic and Wonder of Christmas
Pictures, I finally can show you pictures again. My youngest son gifted me with a new monitor for my PC, so there will be no stopping me now.
As I have noted earlier, we had our Christmas with our Loves and Grandloves this weekend.
Mom and I went Treml's Tree Farm to harvest our Christmas Trees~~~and Yes,

I cut down my own tree.
The Snowmen waited for the Grandloves to each take one home.
They are cuties, aren't they?
Sy and Ben, being lil Santa's~~~
Our oldest Grandlove, Hannah with our youngest Grandlove, Noah
This was Syrus' first year to find the Christmas Pickle first. He was so excited.
Josh found the pickle in the Big Kid Search
These are our Darling Grandloves, 10 0f the 11. In the front row resisting, is Austin, little brother to Christopher who is eating his snowman. In the pink, are sisters Katie and Megan. Center row, also resisting, is Ben, little brother to Syrus, in the green shirt. Kneeling in the center is sister and brother, Ryele and Josh. Behind Ryele is Chole, sister to Hannah with the beautiful long hair. The only one not in the picture is Noah, who already was on the road heading home due to our horrible snow storm.
He is baby brother to Sy and Ben, and the youngest of our Grandloves.
After our Christmas festivities around Grandma and Grandpa's Christmas tree, we all headed a 1/2 mile down the road to our son's Northern Archery Shop, where the grandloves could run off all the sugar I fed them before bedtime. We had a great time playing games like darts, Spoons, a cut-throat card game that the grandloves are way too fast and furious at, pool, singing and dancing, and visiting. What a great time we all had. Now, two weeks rest before we do it all over again at the farm.
Christmas is coming and the goose is getting fat. I understand there will be one on my table this year~~~cannot wait.
Thanks for Stopping

What AM I doing wrong that my diction is not appearing as I write it???? All of the print was supposed to be blue and enlarged.

I had forgotten about the game of Spoons. I used to play that and many others with my daughters and their friends. Gosh I miss those days.

Dar, I'm tickled that you got the new monitor! That was a thoughtful gift. Looks and reads like your whole family had a grand time getting together at the Archery Shop. Great vibes were felt all the way to South-east Tennessee. You have to be just one of the greatest families ever.

Sounds like your early Christmas gathering was a hit! I baked cookies again today in prep for our Christmas with the kids and our Grand-loves. Can hardly wait!!! Thanks for sharing the pics of your bunch. They're all growing up so fast.

Wow, great tree Darla, you certainly picked a good one. Looks like you all had a great time, good to see my buddy Sy, I certainly enjoyed him while there.

Love the snowmen, what an idea you guys are so creative up in the NOrth Woods. I could just see everyone in the Archery building having a ball.
Take care now and don't over do BEFORE Christmas!!!!!

Love from the lower deep freeze.Our water has already frozen and it was just 9PM.

Okay we know it ain't REALLY cold, but it is to us!!
