It's been a wonderful Christmas. My sister was able to be here from Indiana and Joshua's sister came in from Nevada. Both families were complete.
My family Christmas started early and Joshua's just ended last evening with his sister, Sheri leaving today.
It's been a fun few weeks but I'm ready to get back into everyday life. Bring on piles of dirty laundry and dishes:) Hmmm I wonder if I will be saying that next week...
Here are some photos of our Christmas with each family.
Uncle Wes and Aunt Charity ate breakfast with us Christmas morning.

Grandmother the great story reader
Dear, Grandma Rhodes.
Mom and Dad gave each of us an old oil lamp for Christmas.
Josh loves guns. The history of guns. He loves to hold guns like this.
I just don't understand.
But this year, I FINALLY bought the man a gun.
This one dates back to civil war. His Dad found it for me.
He was a happy man.
