It WAS a very Merry Christmas :-)
The family gathered at Mom Edith's on Christmas morning for brunch (always yummy!!) and the opening of presents after that.
The pictures will pretty much speak for themselves.

Finally, a picture of the lighted tree.
We just took it down last week!
Weldon's younger sister Beth and her husband Steve
Weldon's older sister Pat
Pat always gives fabulous books to everyone,
and here is Weldon checking out one she gave him

Weldon's niece Maria and his mom Edith
Weldon's nephew Wesley and Wesley's fiance Ashley
This is Weldon's middle daughter Jennifer.
Her husband Scott had to work .

Our gift to the cows? We milked them morning and evening :-)
You can see it was a beautiful day!

Weldon's youngest daughter Melinda and her husband Joseph live in New York, so they couldn't join us. We were able to get together with Weldon's oldest daughter Kathryn and her daughter Ashley a few days after Christmas.
Unfortunately, Kathryn's husband David was at work.

My family is scattered far and wide, so we weren't able to celebrate together. However, the week after Christmas, my grandson Marshall came up to spend a few days. We had lots of fun together
The highlight for Marshall was driving the Bobcat. I couldn't believe it when I saw Weldon coming down the road on the tractor and ... who could that be
driving the Bobcat?? Sure enough! Marshall -

Weldon put him to work splitting wood
On his last day, just before loading the car and heading back to Charlotte, he just had to take the Bobcat out for one last spin.
Look at that smile!!

When I took him home, I was able to spend a few hours with Anna (my older daughter and Marshall's mom). We exchanged gifts and went out to eat.
My younger daughter Katie is back in Miami,
so one of these cold weekends maybe I'll hop on a plane to go see her.
And that's our Christmas in a blog nutshell.
Happy 2008 to all. Now I have to get to the barn!!!!
