The Five Girls and Their Families!

As we all gathered to have Christmas on Saturday, December 26, 2009, we took the time to take family pictures.

Jeff, Briana, Alex, Dixie, Julissa, Curits, and Samuel

Holly, Tim, David, Joshua, Caleb, Moriah, and Melody

Mike and Heidi

Back Row - Jesherlah, Jodi, Joashleiah, James,
Front Row - Josiah, Jeralyn, and Jeshanah

Silas, Lyndi, and Matt

Mama and Her Five Girls!

I am not exactly sure who decided where to take these pictures, but Lyndi's picture wasn't taken until later and she apparently thought about it and had it taken in front of the Christmas tree.

Two weeks and a day later, I took this picture on our way to the church Christmas program.

I really enjoyed the children's Christmas program. Below are a few pictures from the program.

Remembering Dad

A year ago today my Dad went home to heaven. He is greatly missed. There have been many times throughout this year that I have had questions for Dad and missed being able to talk with him. I can't recall a time over the many years we had together, when Dad didn't have an answer for my questions. One of the last big questions I remembering asking Dad was how to frame in three large doorways in our home. Dad and I went to Menards and picked out the wood, etc needed to frame in those doorways and Dad did the work for us. Those doorways look great!

This year I have taken a photography class and have learned much. Dad was a great photographer of outdoor scenery and I thought while taking my class how Dad would have enjoyed it and I can only imagine what his pictures would have been like had he had even more knowledge about photography. I'm sharing a few of my favorite photos taken by my Dad.
