Santa comes to Mirror Lake on Christmas Eve.

Santa had just a few minutes to stop in here at Mirror Lake and visit the kids. Of course he had a bag full of toys too. Santa talked to each one of the kids encouraging them to be good and reminded them that there are a lot of children that have very little. But how nice of Santa took a minute and get his picture taken with a lot of the kids.

The ground was covered with frozen snow and the roads covered with ice this did make travel more dangerous, but everyone made it okay. Jed and I were again please to host my family for Christmas. Our tree somehow turned out smaller than normal this year, but when you add 70 people, lots of Christmas packages and all the Christmas decorations the house gets small pretty fast. We all enjoyed a great holiday.

The kids stay with Uncle Jed & Aunt Kathy at Mirror Lake and visit the Dairy farm.

After chores we took the kids to the Wind Mill Museum to see Santa and the beautiful display of Christmas lights and warm hot chocolate too. We then headed off to see George's working elves, some are painting, sweeping, blowing bubbles, wrapping gifts, sanding, you name it they are working to get things ready for CHRISTMAS.

After watching the cows getting milked in the milking parlor Uncle Jed tell Mitchell and Adar all about feeding the baby calves. The calves are little but sure looked big to the kids when they were feeding them.

After ALL that hard work in the barn the kids make angels in the snow. The cows in the background are thinking "What are they doing"?

As Jed colors with the kids he starts to tell a story, I don't know what he's telling them but they sure are listening.

Thanksgiving - A Day To Give THANKS!!

What a day to be grateful for, Jed and I again this year hosted my family for Thanksgiving. A few family members were out of town so we celebrated with about 66 people. Garrett our miracle baby and mom Angie were so excited to be here because last year they spent 4 months at St. Vincent's hospital. Mom (Kate) and Aunt Phyllis share the joy as well.

This is the main food and dessert tables. Tyler, Chris, Chelsea, Ashley, Cody and Joel enjoy visit in the kitchen while they wait for dinner to start.

Other family members visit in the gathering room, everyone brings food to eat and we all eat to much. After dinner there's lots of conversation and many of us play games. The ages range from 1 year to 84. I love my family and we're glad to share our home on all the holidays!!!!!
