On Christmas Eve we went to Peoria to Jeff and Susan's (Adam's sister's home) for a family dinner. We had a great time. All the kids played together and all of us adults got to visit. When we got home we let the kids open "JUST ONE GIFT". Guess What they all got?????

In order to cut costs without cutting the people we love, this is our version of our Holiday Newsletter and Christmas Card. Hopefully next year you will all receive a copy in the mail rather than an email or blog posting. You should be able to click on the pictures below to get a bigger image so that you can read the letter.
Every Year my friend Cathy hosts an Ornament and Goody Exchange Party. It is so much fun. It's a LADIES ONLY party. We each bring 4 of the same ornament. One goes to Cathy, the other 3 are wrapped differently and exchanged white elephant style at the party. Every person also brings 5 dozen of their favorite goody and the recipe to exchange with everyone there. Thanks Cathy for always hosting this fun exchange party.
My Goodies for the Exchange
Here is the Recipe, if you would like to try them.
On December 8th, Collin had his band concert at Simonton. Collin plays the trumpet. He had really improved since school started. The songs they played were Farm Out, Go Tell Bill, Good King Wenceslas, Mary Ann, Jolly Old St. Nicholas and Power Rock. From where we were sitting it was hard to get any pictures of Collin playing so the pictures are snap shots that were taken before they begin. He is surrounded by his buddies. Good Job Collin, your efforts are paying off!!!
