Christmas was Wonderful!

I hope everyone had a really Merry Christmas!  John and I sure did!  The grandboys, daughters and son-in-laws all arrived around 9 a.m. and we had a wonderful, joyous day for sure!  I will post some photos later.  Owen loved his Thomas the Train table and all the other gifts he received.  Jenny dressed him in 1950's vintage style cowboy PJ's-he looked so cute!  Jack was in  red and white striped footed PJ's-he looked like a little elf!  Those little boys are just so sweet and loveable! 

John and I are very blessed to have a wonderful family and that they live close by.  It was alot of fun!  I also spoke with my 2 sisters and my parents.  They were all getting together and it sounded like a full house with kids, boyfriends, dogs, etc.

This are the times I will always remember, wonderful memories!

Jack and the Tree

Jenny and Kevin put up their little Christmas tree and Jack loves it!! I remember when Owen was around Jack's age he loved the ornaments but I really think Jack is enthralled with the lights as you can see in this photo:

Jenny took this photo and I just love it!!  I love Jack's little cherub cheeks and the way he is reaching for the lights with his little chubby fingers! So cute!!

John Got the Outside Decorations Up!

 I love the way the house looks when it is all lit up!!
 When I took a photo of one of the candles in the front window I noticed the sunset reflected in the window!
This is my old Flexible Flyer sled and my old ice skates.  I need to add some greenery to this but for now here it is.  My sled has to be about 47 years old!!  The skates are probably about 42 yrs. old!!

Can't decorate inside yet because the Builder is coming tomorrow to tear down the living room ceiling.  I know, I know I get to have all the fun-NOT!!!!

More decoration pictures to follow when the Builder gets out of our house.

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
