Busy Weekend and Pictures

 It has been a very busy weekend with the craft show, going to the nursing home, and a Christmas party this afternoon.  Santa and his helper made the party bringing gifts for all of the kids 12 and under. Pictures were taken of the kids as well as the adults with Santa. I even had my picture taken with Santa Claus. Nobody went home empty handed without a gift. The horse club furnished the ham, turkey, and the drinks. Everybody else brought cover dishes and desserts. If you went away hungry, it was no body's fault but your own. 

It was such a pretty day so that the kids could be outside. A very enjoyable afternoon. I thought I would show you pictures taken at our 50th wedding anniversary party. You can see our cake on the top tier with cupcakes on the other tiers. The first picture is of hubby and I.
 Grandpa and grandma with our three boys. They keep us going. Jake, 14 with the tie, Ethan 8 in dark plaid shirt and Matt 9 sitting in the chair by grandpa. This month will be a little busy with Christmas programs. Matt is one of 8 that gets to play an musical instrument. I am already marking up the calendar for what I have to do. If I don't put it on the calender I will forget it.
Hubby and I with our daughter and one of our sons. Our oldest didn't get to come home. I am hoping maybe at Christmas time he will be home, but we don't know. It will remain to be seen and will be a pleasant surprise if it does happen. They are the parent of our three grandsons. 

The last picture is all of us including spouses. 

They help take care of mom. I know that I got to get my Christmas shopping started as fast as November went it will go entirely to fast.  

This Thursday is our doctor appointment and I hope that we don't have bad weather. I just want some answers. 

 I will continue to pray for all of those in need. Hope all of you have a wonderful week. Take care.
