Christmas At The Farm.

Pictorial Family Christmas--missing Granddaughter Maddie and her Dad Mark with the stomach virus.
Missing Jennifer and her family in Disney World, but other than that........................

Ancestor's farm.  Settled in 1850.  The house built in 1857 and renovated in 2012,

The farm from Susan's kitchen window--where I was born and my son lives now.

Between the entry-way and the family room.

 Sister and me

2nd child and oldest daughter--Pammie    

My eldest, son Mark and 3rd child, Karen
Poor Mark--bloated from the steroids he has to take
to keep his cancer at bay.

Susan's son and his two girls

 My grandsons, actually I just met the one on the left.  Susanna, from Oregon, boyfriend from Alaska.
James, a  nicer man I have never met--next to my own grandson's

Marcus and Stephen.

 My grand girls--Helene, Morgan and Susanna holding Della.
Actually, Morgan isn't official until June 2, 2018 when she and Marcus will marry.

Our family tradition since I was a little girl.  The singing of the carols here.

Sure glad I rode up and home with Karen.  The outside photos were taken at 1:00.  By the time we left to come home, there was 2" of snow on the ground and another 5" predicted.  Karen has a nice new car and new snow tires.  We never slipped a bit on those country roads.

...and Darling Della celebrating
Hanukkah two weeks ago.
