You have given me the heritage of those who fear Your name. Psalm 61:5

February 7 Dad turned 84.  The Colorado kids took he and Mom to NoNo’s to celebrate.  It was a lot of fun.  I laughed so much.

For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. Psalm 139:13

I went with my friend Alethea and her sweet little girl Taliah downtown to take part in the March for Life event on the capitol steps.  Colorado  is gathering petitions to place an initiative on the ballot that would define personhood as beginning at conception.

After the balloons were released, we walked from the capitol over to the 16th Street Mall and back.

The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places; Yes, I have a good inheritance. Psalm 16:6

I love this picture of Wally with Elaine.  It reminds me of how he was with our kids.  I have a similar photo of Wally with Andrea.

A Cup Of Christmas Tea

Something special that “us girls” have done for several years is have tea together.  We do this two or three times, usually when Jo is home.  Sometimes we go to a special place.  But really, we do put on a pretty good tea together!  At Christmas we usually take turns hosting.  One year Mom gave us each a Christmas tea set.  I remember one year when Robin discovered a sweet story, “A Cup of Christmas Tea”.  We all cried and now we read it every year at our tea. In recent years a sequel was written, “A Memory of Christmas Tea”.  This year, Elaine had her first tea party!

Christmas Revisited


Christmas does seem long past.  But one look at a picture and I am instantly reliving the event.  Funny how that works.  It was fun to look at these pictures and recall the wonderful time with had with our family…how quickly it was over.  I’m also so glad to get them posted!

Christmas Eve

Elaine was the center of attention this year.  Here is a four generation picture…My Mom and Dad, Me, Andrea and precious Elaine!

                       Christmas Eve         

   This is my sister Jo.  She is now a great Aunt to 8 great nieces and nephews.  She loves each one and I know prays for them.  She never tires of hearing there is another baby coming!

Jo spent a couple of days with me at my house.  She made this gift bag to put her gift for Mom and Dad into.  It was covered in mittens!     

                     Christmas Eve

On Christmas morning we usually get up whenever and Andrea makes scones and cream and we eat around the tree. That was before ….This is now.  Wesley decides he doesn’t really like scones now.  And Kenny and Ben decide they want to cook.  So we had a very nice sit-down breakfast of pancakes and bacon.  They even very quickly cleaned up the kitchen.
