Still having problems with blogger and posting blogs from my iPad so I am trying to post this from John's laptop. We have been very busy since we have returned to Mississippi.  John is working at Renaissance Mall and I am volunteering at the Natchez Trace Parkway again.

We celebrated our oldest granddaughter's (Ava) birthday in November and attended our niece, Stephanie's wedding in December.

The weather has been crazy here...warm one day and cold the next. We had 74 degrees on Christmas Day.  Here are a few pictures from Christmas.

We have been enjoying visits with the grand babies.  They sure are growing up fast.

Hopefully we fill be able to figure something out with the blog.  Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a safe New Year's. 

Laugh everyday.  Happy trails.  Stay safe. 


  1. Spending the holidays with the family is always nice especially when there are other celebrations thrown in.
    How you get the issues resolved soon.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  2. Your grands are just beautiful! It's nice to be with them for Christmas! Love Annie and Bridget's hats!! Miss you kids!!
