It was so hard picking a Christmas card. Liz made this one but I thought it might be hard deciding who belonged to who... So top left is Liz's two, Truman and Chantel who are in New York. Next is the twins,
Ellie and James who belong to Katie and Brent. 2nd row left is Relle (Sara's) and Eliza (Andrew's). Next to them in the tub is Wickman and Tennessee (both Sara's). The last row is Eliza, Lottie & Henry (Andrew's) and then Wickman, Shipley, Cecelia and Max (all Sara's). The cute boy at the bottom is my beau. Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas.
Doug took me on a wonderful trip to the Dominican Republic. We got an amazing deal. Forty dollars per person for this beautiful all inclusive resort. They advertised it at $20 but that didn't include taxes. This first picture is the private beach we frequented. You had a beautiful view of the beach, a hot tub, and private beds that you could relax on.
This was a daily ritual. This is Doug's perfect vacation..a beach, a good book and plenty of naps. This one qualified on all three accounts. The beds were very comfy. This was the view from the building we stayed in.
Teresa loving the beach Doug with his movie star pose. The water was warm enough to enjoy. The foliage around the resort was beautiful. We did not venture out, we just stayed at the resort and enjoyed ourselves. Thanks Doug for a wonderful vacation.
It's a Southern Tradition that if you eat Black-eyed peas on rice on the first day of the New Year (Called Hoppin' John), you'll have good luck all year through. My cute Katie and Mike put together a Hoppin' John Party and invited the Thompson Crew. Here we are together...
Eliza, showing you what it's all about.
Savanna and I, she's telling me a good one.
Steve Tate, and Warren Shuman with Cute Mike near the Big Pot (say a tearful good-bye to my old kitchen)
Doug and I (I sure do love that man), isn't he cute!
Katie and Brent
Playing Ultimate Craphead
Who is the Ultimate Craphead? I didn't hear you Chris.
Another loser, but just for one round. She's a winner in my book, especially since she's carrying #12 grandchild. Way to go Katie!!
Several Years ago we started a tradition of bringing in the the New Year with Doug's UFOs. He learned this from his Uncle Bob who lived in San Diego. We've been enjoying this lost art for quite awhile. This year was especially cold so it worked very well.
Here we are all together. My niece Mallory was here this year to help us.
