Christmas night is a tradition at my Grandma Alma's that I love.
Since I was a baby we have been going to my Grandma Alma's
Christmas evening. We have so many memories of that.
This year it was great to be there again.


The kids played BINGO after dinner.

More pictures from our time in  Lynden and Leavenworth later this week...

We are missing Rudy a lot.
This place just really isn't the same without her. Willem and I went for a long hike a few
days ago and then another today. It was strange to go without Rudy.

I can hardly believe it is 2012!
We plan to soak up these fun kids, dream big and enjoy life.

HAPPY NEW YEAR... may you be blessed with health, hope and happiness.
