Day 32: What happens when you let Janelle decorate the house? You have a spider ornament worshiping the Baby Jesus in the Nativity scene

Day 36: And what else did Janelle do while decorating? One of the wise man’s heads had broken off, so she set it up anyway, with the wiseman holding his head until I could get it fixed
Day 37: O Come Let Us Adore Him! Christmas Eve service at church.
Day 38: Kaiser really wanted to come in and join our Christmas celebration
Day 39: Janelle wouldn’t let me take her picture in Fazoli’s, so I took this picture instead. I know. Weird.

Day 43: All the grandkids with Grandpa. We celebrated his 80th birthday by having all the grandkids give him 80 of something. It doesn’t happen very often anymore that all the grandkids are together
Day 44: New Year’s Eve in Iowa. All the siblings with Dad.
Day 45: Last summer, my sister and sisters-in-law went through my mom’s jewelery, purses, etc and divided them up between the girl cousins and us adults. I got the things that were chosen for me in Iowa on New Year’s Eve. This ring was in the assortment of jewelry. Unknown to anybody that was dividing up the jewelry, I borrowed this ring from my mom to wear at my wedding. How cool is that?
