Christmas Time Is Near!

Hello Blog!
We have been MIA for some time now but everything is okay!

It has been a busy season for us with Civil War reenactments, Madrigal singing, church programs, school programs and,...the birth of our 8th grandchild, Emma Rose!

Everything seems to pale in light of the great gift of her birth. Our daughter had invitro for her first two and Emma was a surprise. My daughter says she has two miracles and a gift now or 'buy two, get one free'! God is good to us.

Wanted to post a few pics of some of our Christmas scenes around Shadetree. We didn't do much this year in the way of decor but we continue to honor the real reason for the season, Jesus, in our hearts. Pictured are our Christmas tree this year, my favorite scene in the house and the Grandchildren's Tea Table set for Christmas Tea. One grandson refers to it as 'bumping tea' when we toast each others cups.

Christmas blessings to you and your families this Christmastime and all the year 'round!
Pamela and Frank
