Christmas 2017

Jerry flew home this year. Chad and Tara were also here since they now live in Houston instead of Singapore (yay!). Tim wasn't able to come over as he was sick. We had our family Christmas on Christmas Eve. Justin, Jared, and Chad cooked steaks on the grill for us this year which proved to be a big hit with everyone.

At some point, Santa came knocking. Marlow's reaction was priceless.

Pictures with Santa are always a hit - a hit probably more for Marilyn and me than the others. Our maternal grandparents, Pa and Ma Henderson, started this tradition of Santa to come knocking long before the two of us were even born.



We let the kids open presents, and then played games for gift cards. Keelie brought a game called "Crazy Bee Rummy" that Justin had ordered for her. It seems that she used to play this game with her grandmother. It was a huge hit. In fact, Rickie was nice enough to order four of them after Christmas, and he gave one of them to me.

On another note, the "Davis" name will continue. These sweet kiddos are going to have a BOY!

Weekend Before Christmas

Jenna, Marlow and Jackson came up on Friday. Jared was going on a weekend hunting trip. We enjoyed running some errands and hanging out by the fire in the evenings.


Last night was Keelie's Annual Girl Party. We always look forward to wearing comfy (PJ) clothes, eating yummy food that she cooks, sharing our baked goodies with each other, and getting to visit.

Jonah's First Flight

Justin, Keelie and Jonah left Tuesday for a quick Christmas trip to New York City. It was Jonah's first time to fly. Although he was nervous, he made it fine. We helped out with Glory and Molly. We stayed busy and had fun. They returned home late last night.

Marlow Turns Two

We went to Mansfield Friday to be there for Marlow's birthday. Saturday morning they had a breakfast/brunch birthday party at a nearby park. The weather was fabulous.
