Aw...Mondays/ Love is.../ Birthday Wishes/ Humor/My BoJon Heritage/

 We've been on an extended break. It was good to get extra rest and just do what we absolutely had to do. It was hard letting Avery go back to work but I am grateful as he is that he is working and keeping busy. God has been good to us.

I was a nervous Nellie and was always frightened of the Jolly Ole Fellow but I tried to be brave and always took a photo with him. This was in the Crews Beggs department store in my hometown ages ago.

Harrison James had a big smile for Santa. But Shea Avery Marie was wanting to get away from this strange ole fellow. Blakersman said "High Five Santa"! His brother said, uh no thank you. I like watching for afar.

CHRISTmas is in the air at our house. We do a little day by day. It has been so cold in the early morning hours and the Spring like weather comes along later in the day. We had a sprinkling of snow. We need more. Since my felt Advent Calendar is missing in action this year, I found this wooden Doug & Melissa one. The ornaments are magnetic and I sure love it. If you don't know Doug & Melissa , their toys are educational and Melissa's story and struggles with mental health is a great read. More and more people in important places are speaking up and it needs to be heard.

Love is...says Happy Birthday to Roger and Noelle having fun in Las Vegas, Nevada this week. 

Happy Birthday to these two. Very proud of the phamily they have. The years they have spent together and when my mother told me Roger was a good guy, I had to trust her. Afterall, she never was wrong when it came to relationships. Enjoy your trip and time away from work.

It's funny how differently chuldren react to Santa. He IS big and can be very imposing!

Some kids love Santa and have a long list and others don't care for him one bit. Cute shots.

I'm glad you're getting Christmas decorations done. Always makes me smile.

What a beautiful child you were, Anne! This picture looks like it could be a cover of Good Housekeeping ... or the Miles Kimball catalog. Love this picture of Harrison and Shea ... priceless!

Those pictures with Santa are treasured through the years, aren't they.

Many happy returns of the day to Roger and Noelle!
