Five Little "Monkeys" Sitting Up In Bed...
 Tom and I had the pleasure of taking care of these
 little guys for three days and two nights.
You can't see in the picture but, they are eating a
York Peppermint candy.
It's a tradition.
 When they all have woken up, 
they jump into our bed
and eat their candy.
Levi is the guy who knows where the candy is hidden.
He brings them back.
Then they play with our electric bed.
The head and feet go up, plus it vibrates!
So when the head is up and the feet
are up at the same time,
they get squished and call it "Barito".
(I don't know where that name came from)
This was Isaac's first time for the
morning candy/Barito ritual.
Kimmy and Mark went up to McCall
 to enjoy some time away and relax.
It was Kimmy's other, Christmas present to Mark.
Her first one being, that he was going
 to be a dad again with #6 due in August.

 Way to two!
We played, went for walks in the snow,
did some chores,
read books and watched a movie or two.
Silas took his chore very seriously,
getting the mail.
Here he is sitting on the top of the couch, waiting for the mail truck to come.
Everyone missed each other!
Mom and dad returned to happy
squeals and lots of hugs.
Tom and I were left with silence.
I never liked it when other grandparents would say,
'It's great to have them for a while and then they can go home."
Not my sentiments!
I miss them.
But we are BLESSED because
they live just down the street! 
Oh, the joys of being a grandparent!
"Show hospitality to one another without grumbling."
1 Peter 4:9

*** 2018 ***

It was COLD but so much fun!
Sparklers are the best, especially in the snow.
Tom and I stood on the deck with Isaac,
while the kids celebrated.
Our breath made it fun for those who
were to old or to young for sparklers.
Mark out did himself this year
with a specular show! 
"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like the shifting shadows."

Best Christmas Gift Ever!

Christmas Eve service
in the Barn!
 It was all lite up and warm.
These girls are sisters and they sang
so beautifully.
(this picture is of them practicing)
All the animals were outside.
The kids had both grandmas
to help celebrate with them.
 The candles were glowing
while we sang
Silent Night
Matching new, PJ's
Christmas morning,
 just before the kids came downstairs.
 Kimmy gave Mark several
surprise gifts to Mark.
Please go over to Kimmy's blog and watch the video 
titled,  Mark's Christmas Present.
It was a great Christmas for all of us.

New Year!!
