Our family was together for a soup luncheon last Saturday.
Here are my two very beloved sisters and myself.
I wish I were as photogenic as they are.
I was told I need to get in front of a mirror
and practice my smile.
(Do people really do that??? I guess they must. I’ve been instructed more than once.!)
Our Sweet Mama joined us for a picture.
Mark Yoder Sr.’s gals.
That’s the four of us!
I’m often mistook for Mama’s sister.
That doesn’t usually happen to my sisters.
They look young enough that people know she is their mama.
One afternoon this week,
Eldest Daughter brought Littlest Babysat Boy.
He is “sweetness” and “boy” in an unpredictable package.
I caught him “reading” this book.
There were no pictures
or anything to really hold his attention.
He and his brother, Biggest Babysat Boy,
fill a very big place in my heart.
I love to have them come,
love when they climb up for a story,
love to talk to them.
I am so blessed to be their “Aunt Mary.”
Eldest Daughter, Middle Daughter
and one of our Beloved Daughters in Law
Came this week to decorate three trees
for the Hospice Parade of Trees.
I caught this picture of Eldest Son’s Wife,
busy with one of the trees.
I love this picture of Regina.
It was such a happy afternoon.
Certain Man is on his way home from Ohio.
I have missed him excruciatingly!!!
There have been chicken house alarms.
There was a monumental feed spill.
I did something I almost never do.
I scrubbed the carpet in the living room.
I moved furniture all around.
I moved some out until after Christmas.
I am having trouble moving myself today,
But I am thoroughly pleased with my living room.
I surely do hope to see some of you stopping by for a cup of hot chocolate and some conversation.
