Caitlyn and Chase Visit

We were surprised this week with a visit from Greg's great-niece and nephew, Caitlyn and Chase, who live in Missouri. They are here visiting their Poppy and Nana for Christmas. Poppy and their mom, Cindy, brought them over for a brief visit one morning. Caitlyn played the piano for us and posed nicely in front of our Christmas tree. Getting a good photo of Chase was a challenge... he turned his head and said, "No!" We were able to distract him, and with a lot of luck, snap a few good ones!

Christmas Eve at Greg & Debbie's

We spent Christmas Eve with the "Chandler" family... Mam-ma Polly, Mom & Lee, Suzanne, Mike and Jasmine, and Greg's mom, Elaine. After church, we ate a big meal, watched video and played dominoes, then went to Candlelight. Then we ate again, opened gifts, and ate some more! It was a great day. Here are some photos... click them to enlarge... enjoy!

Christmas With Olivia

My cousins, Natalie and Olivia, came to visit yesterday and to see our decorations. Olivia loved the tree and the lights... Natalie loved it all! We exchanged gifts... a depression glass bowl set for Natalie, a beautiful black necklace and bracelet set for me, and Olivia got a hand puppet cow who sings Christmas carols when you move his mouth and a string of stuffed snowmen for her bed. Our visits are always too short, so the girls are going to try to come back after Christmas and stay longer.

The Robus Boys Get Together

Last Saturday, the Robus boys and their wives got together with their mom to celebrate Christmas. We enjoyed a good lunch at Mack's, and visiting during the afternoon. Greg made a slide show, "Let It Snow," to share old photos of the family in the snow through the years, and we enjoyed looking at it on Elaine's computer -- fun memories!
