Tuesday, December 27 – The Weavers and Wadsworths celebrated another glorious Christmas together.

The stockings were hung by the coffee table with care…and bulging with gifts. The extra little snowman stocking Santa left for Kelly's boyfriend, Dave.


It looks like a couple of girls were pretty good this year.


Before we opened gifts, we made a Skype call to Paul and Bella. It was a wonderful way to wish him a Merry Christmas. Marsha's dad had never heard of Skype and was just amazed the entire time we talked.


We showed you a picture with Carrie's favorite gift, the Kitchen Aid Mixer…here is Kelly's…


The girls gave us car mats for the front and back. A HUGE gift that we were going to purchase in Mission. They then gave Marsha several other wonderful gifts. THANKS again, girls, for the super gifts. Once Marsha and the girls opened gifts at dad's house, they headed for Rickie's house, Marsha's brother. They didn't have to go to far; his backyard butts up against dad's.

Marsha made baskets for everyone…those pictures will come in a future blog…but she also made one special gift for her sister, Stacie. Stacie was diagnosed with breast cancer just last November. She is only 40. Marsha's gift…a prayer shawl for comfort and hope for the future. Stacie was very happy to receive the gift.


Each year, we kids rack our brains trying to find something to get our dad for Christmas. Last year it was a new TV…this year a new tiller. Boy was he surprised and sooooooo happy to receive it.  That should make putting in his garden this spring a little bit more enjoyable.


Marsha's Godchild and nephew, Keith, was so fired up to receive his gift from her.


Can you guess what is inside….remember he is only 30…


Great Lakes Christmas Ale. This is a beer locally brewed that only comes out for two weeks during the Christmas season. We never knew beer could cost so much!! But, Keith says it is the best gift he ever received…his standards aren't set very high.

We all received way more than what we deserved, but no one volunteered to give it back. Tons of food was consumed, and the traditional holiday photos were taken.

Carrie, Marsha and Kelly

From our family to yours….We wish you a happy and healthy New Year!!!


One last photo…an update on Marsha's progress. Each day the swelling goes down. She is still pretty bruised under her eyes, and even though you can't tell it from the photo, she has lots of stitches that haven't dissolved. She feel great and thanks everyone for their prayers and well wishes. She sees the doctor on Wednesday.


Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see ya'll back real soon. Have a great day!
