Our Christmas wish to all of you!

Merry Christmas to all our loved ones. Christmas always brings such warm and wonderful memories of years past. So many good times to remember. Christmas tree cutting fiascos and fun, christmas shows to watch together, secrets and shopping, traditional meals,"our own bottle of pop!" sleepless nights, sneeky children, decorating.....cookies and candy and most of all beloved family there to enjoy it all with you.

Now those times are long past, but close to our hearts. We're so glad to have a few of you here to share this Christmas time with us and will be thinking of those of you who aren't. My dream is that sometime we'll all be close enough to enjoy many good times together. For now, we'll just have to plan and work at it.

We'll be home Christmas Eve, but go to Bend to see Grma and Grpa on christmas day, and return on wednesday. We don't have any special plans but hope to have a good time. Of course, the food has to be just right!, so we've been working on that. The house is cozy with the tree and lights and a fire feels so good when it gets this cold and adds to the coziness. We have about 4 inches of snow to make it really feel like Christmas and maybe more on the way.

Hope all of you are ready to stop the stressing and enjoy the spirit of this beautiful season when we celebrate the birth of the Savior. The older you get the more important you feel it is to have your thoughts turn to the Savior and his birth and sacrifice for us.

We'll be thinking of you,
love, MOM

Christmas at the Wood's

We wish all of you a Merry Christmas and would love to have everyone together for the holidays. We are excited for the ones that will be here at home and will be thinking of you all! And you can thank Justin for all of these new posts...

Christmas party at the Shelmans

It was a cold clear night, about 5 degrees. The moon was bright and the snow was crunchy! We had a bon fire, hot chocolate and a fun hay ride. Dad had to work unfortunately, wish all of you could have been there!
Dad left the chickens out for a few days and since it was snowing the chickens had to seek refuge on the porch. Mom was thrilled...POOP all OVER the place!!!

home again home again!!

What a great time we had, and how quickly it passed! Pheonix was warm and the skies in the southern states are soooo blue. We had a really good time visiting with Tuck and his "guys". We were happy to help him cover his backyard with rocks to cut down on the dirt. It looks really nice. Las Vegas was warm most of the time except for the last 2, and we had such a good time being with Mike and Jamie and the grandkids. Sunday we had gone for a walk and dad and I lagged behind abit because he was visiting along the way! When we got to Jamies there was a rabbit nibbling on the bushes in front of the the girls helped him catch the bunny and they now have a pet at last! Even Dakota loves the bunny. His name is Buddy.

We made it home about 7.15pm on Sat. night. It was a very long day, but it went well and it's a pretty drive. There's a whole lot of nothing out there. Everything at home is still here and working and Sadie is fine. We miss everyone already, but home is always a nice place. Thanks for everything family. We love you.
