End of Year....

Some of the group that gathered for Christmas!

And this is what happens when you let the girls lick the bowl when you are finished making Christmas fudge! There was NO calming them down!

We had a wonderful Christmas this year again! Time is just slipping by so fast, I'm having a really hard time keeping up. We've been home since the weekend before Thanksgiving, but will be moving lock, stock and milk cow back to Coldspring in the next couple of days. We had planned to go yesterday, but had to attend the funeral of Jeff's cousin's daughter, Willie Marrie, who passed away on Friday after a two year battle with breast cancer. She was only 32 years old and leaves behind a husband and 3 children-please keep them in your prayers. Ricky also lost his stepdad a week before Christmas-so my break has been taken up with funerals-too sad for this time of year.
We've been thinking alot on the goals we had for this past year-mainly the getting out of debt one. God is so good-we can actually see the light at the end of the tunnel and several of our debts are very close to being paid off! We were able to put a substancial dent in our debt and hopefully the next 6 months will see us free and clear of nearly everything other than my truck note-God willing! The garden did very well and we were able to can and freeze alot of veggies this year. I didn't do a good job at all of keeping track of it here on the blog, but I do have a tally on a calendar in the camper-so I'll get caught up on it in the next few days so I can get started on the income taxes.
Happy New Year Everyone!
