  4. Thanks for sharing your pictures and memories of this past Christmas!! Sounds like your family has some great traditions!

    I have a question though--what exactly is "cornhole"? Just curious.

    Hope all is going well with your real estate training that you're doing right now!

    Take care!

  5. mike, gramps & i do not like having our christmas eve dinner interrupted by picture taking (note our expressions).

    linc now has fav pages in goodnight moon. the "goodnight nobody" page and the "goodnight mush" page. he always opens the book to those pages & just keeps pointing at them for us to read.

    i love that pic of ms. teresa shoveling snow.
