Finish out 2017 . . . .

Today and tomorrow I’ll be finishing up some posts of 2017, so bear with me.
It’s been such a busy year and I just don’t understand how it can be the end of December 2017.

On Christmas Eve morning I went to Covington to pick up my brother Dean and brought him to the farm to spend the day.

We had some quality time together and man can that man eat!

He waited until after our late lunch to open his gifts and then he was ready to go back to Covington.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On Christmas day we drove to Roanoke to spend some time with hubby’s sister Dreama.  She was full of family gossip and news and she seemed to like the gifts we took to her and we thoroughly loved the gifts she had for us.

Dreama is a worry wart and always so sad of anyone’s troubles whether they relate to her or not.

She’s wearing out the Christmas sweatshirt that Heather got her for her birthday. She is a huge fan of Christmas and has Heather put up her tree the day after Thanksgiving and doesn’t want it taken down until March if she can get away with it. She’ll leave all of her gifts under the tree until it comes down.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We had a wonderful evening with the kids the day after Christmas.

Christmas with the family, Heather is taking the picture.

Heather fixed a wonder dinner of baked ham, mashed potatoes, bacon wrapped asparagus, and so much more.  We were all stuffed but still able to trod upstairs to open the gifts.   Our children always gift us with wonderful things that we can use throughout the year and this year was no exception.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Merry Christmas everyone!

Happy New Year!
