Happy Busy!

Thursday night, the grandchildren arrived and were welcomed into joyous, grandparent arms!  This will be the first actual Christmas we have spent with Ashley and Adam, although Ashley has been here during the Christmas season and I have been out there in early December.  I'm looking forward to sharing this time with them and with our newest grandchild, Charley!

Friday, we had lunch with Grandma Duncan. 

Son Tommy came for the weekend to hunt so Adam graciously slept on a blowup bed under the Christmas tree.  Jack and Mikey loved sleeping with Adam!

When they were little, they would pose nicely for pictures.  Not so much now.  Adam clowning around!
And around...

Until I finally resorted to threats, bribes sweet grandmotherly please and they posed nicely!

Uncle David visiting with his soon to be step daughter, Devin.  

Skyping with Claudia and Charley!  

Tommy and Matt back from the hunt.  Adam went hunting and got to sit in the stand with Uncle David.  Later, Grandpa Russell let him shoot the pistols at targets. 

Unfortunately, they didn't bring home any meat!

Off to Church on Sunday morning.

Ashley posing.

Don't even ask me about Adam's shirt.  I think it is a skateboarding thing.  I hope.  

Just a little tease.....I'll be back but it's very busy around here right now!

Merry Christmas!
 Thanks be to God that He came in the flesh to dwell among us and to sacrifice Himself for our sins!

Fun times for you - I'm so glad you get to have them for the actual DAY. Busy times here, too, and happy ones. But our actual holiday will be very subdued this year - a first for us.
