Time with Family

We were blessed by my oldest son and my grandsons coming over this past weekend and putting our new desk together.  All done in three hours!

And with ALL of them also being computer guru's, they put the computer, printer, sound system, all back in fine working order, plus, all the wiring is now neatly banded together so it looks nice under the desk too.

Joe's son Rob, and his girlfriend Danette came from Auburn, Washington to spend Christmas eve and part of Christmas Day with us. Poor Danette had just gotten home, driving from Tucson, AZ. Sunday, and turned right around and got back in the car for the trip down here on Monday. So she was understandably tired. They play Pokeno with a group of friends once a month. I asked them to bring their game down here. We played one time a few years ago when we were at Pilot Knob, but forgot how to play. It was fun to relearn the game and we are now saving our nickles for our next trip up there. I see another game of Pokeno in our future. Viola watched us play the first game, and decided she could join us. She had fun and we didn't tell her it wasn't Bingo.

This was my table for Christmas eve.

The bar held a crockpot of chili and a fondue pot with fresh cut up bread.

And the traditional birthday cake for Jesus. 

Viola had a wonderful time opening her gifts.

Grand daughter Kelly and family took us to a specialty store this summer that only sells Root Beer and Root Beer Products.  Vi was so tickled to find in her box, Root Beer pop, lip gloss and Root Beer Barrels (hard candy)....

I was thrilled to have another bottle of White Diamonds Perfume

Joe is pretty pumped over receiving a Soulo Karaoke for our iPhone and he's already used it
Rob down loaded the app needed for the Microphone, and today I went to my favorite AT&T store, and one of my two "adopted" grandsons helped me figure out how to get connected to the iphone AND the Jawbox. WE HAVE SOUND!!! LOTS OF SOUND. Now we just need to find the kind of music he likes on iTunes.He likes the old classic cowboy music and old hymns of the church. Its so nice to have such a small set up. An iPhone, a microphone, a couple of chords and the Jawbox. It will all fit in something like a man's travel bag used for his toiletries.  We just happen to have an extra one.  So now the family won't ever have to wonder what to get Joe for Christmas, Birthday's etc. yep......itune cards. 

I just had to add a couple more pictures. Grandson and new daddy Jesse, mommy Alyssa and newest great grandson Bronson Asher Hall, about six weeks old.

And this just really made me giggle.  Six weeks old, and his first recliner, including a cup holder. A Christmas present from his maternal granny.
