If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

And Back to Work We Go...

Christmas is over and the weekend is over. It's Monday morning and time to go back to work. It was fun while it lasted, but it didn't last long enough. haha

On Christmas Eve, the 4 of us brothers and sisters and spouses and kids got together at my sisters house. There have been a lot of changes in our family in 2014 and 2015. I'm so glad we all took the time to be together and we had a really good time. Then a group of us went to visit with dad. Dad isn't doing the best, but he seemed to enjoy the cookie my sister brought him and I got this picture of dad and Kelli together.

We had a good Christmas. I think the girls liked what they got and hubby and I like our gifts. We had a good breakfast at our house (eggs, bacon, sausage and French toast or various combinations thereof). My sister came over and we enjoyed just sitting and talking. We don't seem to ever take the time to do that much any more. It was nice.

In the afternoon we all went to hubby's parents and had a good dinner and shared gifts and just enjoyed being together. 

Kerri had already left before we go to the pictures and yes we did use a selfie-stick for this picture.  haha

I love all my family and am so thankful for the time we've had together these last few days. We didn't get to spend as much time with Kerri as we had hoped, but I really enjoyed the time we had.  She has her new family to be with too and we understand that.   Kelli headed back to Florida this morning, but we had such a good time while she was here.  Things are pretty much back to normal now and very quiet at our house tonight.  But quiet is a good thing sometimes.

I hope you all had a good time these past few days also.


  1. Glad you had lots of family time - I know it had to be hard at times this year.
    I told Ricky I'm disappointed he didn't get me a selfie stick :) haha... I gotta get one.
    Hope your easing back into Monday has been easy :)

  2. So glad you enjoyed your Christmas and time spent with family. NEVER seems to last long enough, lol. Have a good week!

  3. Sounds like you had a lovely celebration with your family. I'm happy for you!

  4. Love the selfie pic! I gave my DIL a nice selfie stick for Cmas,and she was thrilled too death. Enjoy the rest of 2015 and blessings abundant for 2016!
