Last of the Holiday Celebrations

The picture of this little sweetheart was taken in December of 1953. 

 This is the same little sweetheart taken December 2015. She is my sister Jan.  She was making coffee on her wood burning stove in the family room in the coffee pot used by her mother in law for years. It made great coffee too.
We came to spend the New Year's weekend with her. She invited her neighbors across the street to join us. We played Fast Track until five minutes til midnight, then we stopped long enough to watch the fire works fired off from the Space Needle in Seattle. Then it was back to the game table where we played until 2 in the morning.  I can't remember when I've stayed up that late to play games, and  I payed for it New Years day. I was so tired! I went to bed at seven that night and slept until seven the next morning.  

Jan left her Christmas Decorations up after Christmas so we could enjoy them.  Every room in the house had some type of Christmas Decoration. It was so pretty. We had a really hard time getting this picture though because...........

The little Elf On The Shelf kept photo bombing us. Isn't she a cutie!!

Saturday we took  Jan to lunch then went for a ride around a portion of Bonney Lake and Lake Tapps.  It goes on and on for ever.  Look closely and you will see ice forming on the water.

If we are friends on Facebook, you have probably already seen these next few pictures.  We left Bonney Lake about 8:30 this morning and about five miles South of Chehalis we started encountering snow and the further South we went the worse it got. But some people thought it was OK to go the regular speed limit. We saw probably close to seven accidents, spin outs and cars zooming off into the ditch.

We gave thanks to the Lord for the safe journey home and except for having to go out for chemo and Dr. appointments I'd just be happy to stay in my cozy little home until..............

Valentine's Day!!!!
