December 2013

December is always a busy month and we were no different. 
We enjoy having roommates.  Watching Baby C venture through his first holiday season has been fun...
and a challenge.  
Drahma and Papa have this very cool tree in their living room now. 
Mr. T is playing soccer.  We have been attending his indoor soccer games every weekend. 

Tree hunting for this cute little family.  

Baby C didn't think too much of Santa and Mrs. Claus. 

New headwear for Drahma and Momma.

10 month old

My 'guys'.  Aren't they adorable? 

We found a friend at Costco. 

These are the sweetest blue eyes.

There is a pink pig up by the house - 
we watch for it every year.  
We didn't think they were going to put it up this year.  

A Friday night sleepover combined with a snowstorm. 
We walked cookies over to the house with the pink pig.  
We shoveled sidewalks
and had a snowball fight!

Our Tennessee Grands - growing up too fast. 

Our oldest granddaughter and her handsome young man.

My handsome nephews and beautiful nieces.

Our oldest daughter and son-in-law celebrated 25 years of marriage with a family gathering in Jamaica - 
and a renewal of their vows at the site of their wedding. 
Our Jam-Texan Grands.

Crafting with my Girls

Erin discovered another U of I alumni here in the Treasure Valley. 
Her and her husband own the Indian Creek Winery.  
They were holding craft day - creating with wine corks - and we knew we wanted to arrange with our favorite girl posse for a morning out. 

 We quickly confirmed availability with my daughter-in-laws and signed up. 
If you have never been out to Indian Creek Winery I highly recommend the visit. 
Granted our visit was December, but the small store heated with the pot belly stove was cozy warm,
the staff (all family) was charming and friendly.

With my Girls

I am looking forward to returning when the spring weather returns.  
The flower beds are intriguing and I suspect I will find one or two blooms to photograph.
