A Sentiment

God knew what He was doing when He sent a gentle breeze and brought a lovely butterfly to set my heart at ease. The happiness of your friendship and the gentleness of your words have touched my life in special ways and now I feel assured. Thank you for your loyalty and for reading everyday. I only hope you find things to make a happy day.

More Family Pictures

Well, well...another day another party. Joe's grand kids came over to see us today. The snow was coming down fast and furious. We couldn't get the driveway cleared in time for their visit. They brought cookies..our waists needed them. I ate some..the devil made me do it. Lindsay is such a good baker. This is Joe's grandson, Matt, and his wife Lindsey. I have to apologize for these pictures...of all things, I didn't charge my camera..and at Christmas. Joe and his grandsons. Look at those Italian faces. From the left, Matt, David, Joe and Brandon.

Brandon in his Santa hat.

Balisha with David and his girlfriend. I forgot her name...I am so ashamed. She's very pretty.

And finally Joe and the kids. The grand kids don't come often enough. We love to visit with them. Now I know why my grandparents loved having me visit and had a hard time when I left. They always brought out the food....I do the same.

After a couple of hours, they left and we were alone for the first time in a couple of days. Joe cleared the snow, I put the gifts away. We warmed up yesterday's leftovers and took off our shoes and relaxed. Ahhhh, peace and quiet. We are tired, but it's a good tired.

Hi there! You're looking so good!! All our snow has melted. It's been raining here. I'm trying my best to stay warm.

We had a quiet Christmas. Dinner at my mom's. She baked ham and I made broccoli casserole and mash potatoes. She always wants me to make the taters.

I got lots of candy for Christmas. :-) Not really a good thing.

Hi Balisha, I read all about your Christmas and looked at all your great photos. We had a wonderful time at the farm. The girls and I cooked and cooked some more. We ate till we looked like balloons! I think your header is pretty but keep it there! I have Tater Tot all night tonight and like all grandparents, I am really looking forward to it. We are all very blessed. All those boys look like Joe!

Isn't that the greatest feeling when you vacuum the house and sit down. After all the confusion, which I love, but the relaxing afterward is wonderful also!

It's nice to see your holiday photos as I'm catching up on all the posts I've missed. Family is a wonderful thing.
Wishing you a fabulous 2010...
