Can't believe it's the last day of 2013......so much to be thankful for and so many wonderful memories! Although the year started with the sudden death of Mark's dad on January 9th, we are all richer for having known this wonderful, humble man who was a great role model for his family and friends!
Two new babies joined our family and what a joy both Luke and Blair are....and very thankful for our other 5 grandsons (Drew, Davis, Liam, Brady and Connor.) Our health and good travels are high up on the list, too.
Mark and I took Mike and Theresa to the airport this morning for their flight back to Chicago. We then went to Grampa's for breakfast (a favorite from when the kids lived in Dania Beach).
Ryan is back in Pensacola.....
. The water was turned off for 2 hours while Philip and Mark worked on the irrigation system.
Got the house tidied up, laundry going full speed and then Annette, Luke and Grandma went on a little shopping jaunt to Target and Costco. We found a few specials left from Christmas at 50-70% off.
A good little shopper
Annette, Luke and I went for a walk in the neighborhood and always enjoy the pretty decorations. Here's Santa - Florida style!
Ole Santa on the beach with his shades, drink in hand, under a palm tree
Philip grilled some delicious rib eyes and shrimp for our New Year's Eve dinner! We are all tired and do not plan to ring in the New Year....not even up to games or cards! So.....
here's wishing you all a VEERRY
HAPPY, HEALTHY NEW YEAR!!!!
