Goodbye 2013 - Checking In

I hope you all had wonderful holidays!  
We sure did. All of our daughters and their families and my mom were here for Christmas and all but one for Thanksgiving. It's always wonderful to get together and just "be."

The festivities are over and believe it or not, I'm still trying to catch up on the dishes, laundry and such. Seems once I get behind, it takes a bit of effort to catch up. 
The Christmas season is always busy, but our family had a bit of extra busyness.  

The beginning of  December these two got engaged 

Congratulations you two!!!

Doesn't our youngest daughter look happy?

Then if that wasn't exciting enough, we were blessed with our 
fourth grandchild, our third granddaughter. 

Meet sweet Quinn and her mommy, our daughter, Emili.

Big sister is very happy. 
She sang to her as soon as she saw her, it was so sweet.

We topped the month off with a Christmas day filled with love and family. 

This year, 2013 has been one of blessing for our family. 
Difficulties and struggles have all been a part of this year, 
but in the end we see blessing.
We ALL feel so very blessed.

See you in 2014
