Highlights from Christmas

I'm the person behind the camera pressing the shutter....and
I Love candid shots and posed shots and every remembrance
of a holiday festivity..
With that being said I have a collection of family Holiday photos to
share.... Hope you don't get too bored.. I have just added
a few 'words' in description of the 'shot'

Lean on me...lean on me..
somebody to lean on!

Remember young love?
My grandson and his girl

She thought it was funny... but he's thinkin about it

If you have some extra dip.... have a piece of the broccoli tree

A poser.... Mandy and me with our Christmas bears

Awww shucks... you shouldn't have!

I did ASK Santa for some silverware.....

and Honest we ALL DO ...believe

We used to be skiers.... thanks for the reminder

How a strange gift can make you happy and......

bring a S M I L E :-) 'Waffles tomorrow morn fer sure'

Peace Grandma!

A giddy up ride from Uncle Jarred.. go Alison

Oh My Gosh! I'm not eating a red striped chewy... no way!

My wonderful grandsons....

an unusual ornament... but she likes dragonflies

These are generic... last year we had whole outfits

Huh? What's that expression?

Can you tell I love these guys?

What do you mean 'I' can't play?

Christmas makes me tired..

The boys and their sports shirts... Hockey


Money is good... very good

Just what I wanted... new shoes

I'm sick of this crown

Candles are lit... dinner is almost ready

Lookin in and sharing the moment with us

It truly was a Merry Christmas

and as the sun rises on this snowy New Years Eve.... let me say

To God be the Glory ~~ Great Things He Hath done

I'm looking forward to 2010 and the blessings to come.....

Tribute to Daddy...

My dad was born on July 21, 1926 and he was one of a kind.
When my mom died in 2006 I became his care-giver
Along with my brothers we did everything to keep him at home
and see to his every need.
He died at home on December 13, 2009.
I wrote this for his funeral.

83 years old
Never complaining...
always joking as if he would live forever.
A loving kind responsible husband
An able provider
A hard worker
A giving loving father, grandfather
and great grandfather...
This was OUR father.
Now at peace in the arms of the Lord.
Dad, you are our hero.

"Absent from the body, present with the Lord:
II Corin. 5:6-8

John F. "Fred" DeMoss
Our special journey has ended, but our love
goes on forever. I'll miss you daddy.

Today the snow came...and he would have been
telling me stories about snow had he been here. We
would have discussed the birds at the feeders or maybe
we would have talked about how we don't get the
big heavy deep snows like we used to.
My feeders are full of birds today. I have
included some of the pictures. I think they came
to pay their respects... as the people did the past
two days at the viewing and the funeral.

They reflect the season and the fact that Christmas is almost here

Last week end I was prepared to finish up my shopping and
start the baking...

I had already decorated the house, hung the wreathes
lit the lights and trimmed the trees

Now I am behind and no desire to get back in the mood..

I must! and I will. Family will be back for the holidays
and life will go on...

Daddy on the other hand has stepped on shore, taking the hand
of God and is breathing new air... celestial air

I'll see you in heaven, dad... wait for me.

I'm thanking God for all the beautiful birds that came to
feed in the fresh fallen snow at the feeders.
Even Ben, knowing it was a special day, is watching out for
the birdie friends who have come.
