Hello Everyone,
We have had a lot of excitement around here this week. Don & Judy has decided to move back to Iowa. They turned Connies world upside down, as now she has to also find a place for her and Sassy to live. She would like to take a big step and buy a condo. Only one thing wrong with that idea, the one she likes hasn't even been started yet, and she don't know if she can afford the payments anyway. She got approved for a loan, but don't want to go that high. She don't want to get herself in trouble by getting something that she might not be able to keep up with. With Sassy being a boxer, apartment complexes don't want dogs over 35 pounds, and I am affraid that our Sassy weighs a bit more than that.
Don and Judy have the task of finding some place to live from long distance, although there is several people looking for them. All I know is that I'm glad that I am not having to face all these problems. Its such a daunting task to have to pack and move, let alone trying to buy a house and or selling one. As much as I like having family around, I guess I will get used to it once again. They know where to find us if they ever want to move back.
Well guess that will do it for tonight. I think Dale is ready for his computer, when I started this he was asleep, but I have been on here awhile. Guess I should have turned my own on.
Take care and will try to get something wrote this coming week. Happy Daylight Savings Time everyone.

Hi. Wanted to post some Christmas pictures of my Daughter Lynda, Hubby Marc and of course my precious Grandson Alex who is 16 months old. Isn't he a cutie. We spent Christmas Day with them so we could watch him open his first Christmas things. He was to little last year and wouldn't have cared one way or the other if it was Christmas.
In September we also attended his first Birthday party, which had the theme of a farm, it was a great party, but alas all Alex wanted to do was chew on the cards instead of open presents. A good time was had by Mommie and Aunt Connie who opened and displayed all the presents.
Back to Christmas, I hope all of you had as good a day as Dale and I did. We all know that Christmas is all about Jesus, and I try my hardest to keep that in mind by doing extra good deeds, but Christmas is also for the Children in all of us. I must say that it is one of my favorite times of the year. Even though all the trees and lights are down and put away, we still must remember to continue to do good deeds. I hope to have enough jewels in my crown that when St. Peter sees me he will throw those doors wide and won't hesitate to let me through those Pearly Gates.
Now that it is the new year, we have a lot to get done. I have long since given up making resolutions. To many of them have gone by the wayside before January is even over with, so I just try to do what I would like to to and call it good. Don't much care for disappointments, so I don't set myself up for them anymore.
I am attemping to compile a recipe book from family and friends, so if anyone out there in blogland would like to contribute, please do, I will check back on this blog from time to time to read the comments.
Thanks for listening to my rantings.
Happy January to everyone.
