Christmas at Grandma Linda & Paw Paw's

The girls made "sugar mountain" cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve with Grandma. They left them out for Santa and left some sugar for the reindeer. :)

Santa brought them cameras- just what they wanted!

Grass Fire 08

It started with a welding accident six properties away. It got here fast due to heavy winds. It burned here for about half an hour. I got the kids out when it reached the travel trailer. The last thing I saw before leaving was the fire rip through the garden. It just went around the house. The wind that brought it here saved us. Go figure! It burned about 7 1/2 acres of our land. We are so very lucky- no one, no animals and no structures burned. Thank Goodness! We are feeling very lucky today. Happy Holidays!

Violet peacefully sleeping in her bassinet in her room (Yay!)

I have been putting her there to hang out and nap during the day. She puts herself to sleep in there really well. So, I guess I should get the monitor set up and try putting her in there at night. Of course then I would have to walk all the way across the house to do night feedings. Hmmmm.
