Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus are freezing outside. Hillary gave us these to display. Do they need to come in and warm up?
A few of our Nativity Scenes we have displayed for Christmas.
Our Christmas tree. We have not removed the decorations for many years. It just goes out to the shed for storage and comes back in each year as is. One of these years the lights will not work but so far we are okay.
Some more Nativity Scenes collected on our travels.
Our First Vice-President/President Elect, Pat Packer conducting the program.
The Woman's Choir came and performed some of their Christmas numbers. They are great.
Maurie Barton, one of our club members really danced it up on one of the numbers.
Doris Groot did a reading with the help of Margaret Arnold, Bernice Boyle, and Judy Heindel
Linda Flamm and Pat Packer played their accordions.
Barbara Merrill lead a sing along with Jill Sutton accompanying.
Lots of great refreshments. It was a great program to start out the Christmas season.
Relish tray that looks like a turkey. My only culinary creation. I forgot to take pictures at the dinner. We had the Barney Family, Ashley and Grandpa Landon plus 2 University girls, Katie Howell and Taylor Nelson, join us for dinner.
Lily helped her mom make the rolls. She is a pretty hard worker.
June is growing so much.
Family that was here for a few days for Thanksgiving.
Grandpa and ma Landon, Great-Grandpa Landon (Lily kept calling him 'New Grandpa') and 5 of the cousins. We are missing the Hays Family.
Melanie turned 39 years old on November 28, 2013. (Thanksgiving Day). She was born on Thanksgiving day at 1:52 pm. I can still remember smelling the turkey cooking at the hospital. What a joy she has been in our lives. These are pictures of Melanie at 1 day old, 9 months old, and 5 years old.
We ate at the Martinique Cafe the first night we arrived and wanted to eat lunch there on Sunday before we left. The food was amazing.
Macy's was right by our motel also.
The Christmas windows were decorated for the holidays already. They are always so unique.
Inside Macy's. When you get to the fourth floor they still have the old wooden escalator. On the top floor is a mail box to mail your letters to Santa. Macy's also has there own Post Office on the top floor and their own Zip Code.
Outdoor food booths.
Good-bye New York. A taxi cab came and got us and took us to the Kennedy International Airport to fly home on Delta.
We had a wonderful time, saw lots of sights, and plays, and enjoyed Lori Hansen's storytelling event. It was great to be included with the group of ladies that went to New York.
GREAT MEMORIES. Thanks Ashley for going with me.
