Hello Fellow LJ members wherever you are. My wife and I just want to wish you and your families
A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS !!
I can’t tell you how much I have enjoyed your company since joining LJ earlier this year. I feel very lucky to be associated with so many fine people, and I mean that sincerely.
We also want want to extend a special Christmas Greeting to all of those serving in the military and their families who might see this. For those on active duty in dangerous areas, thank you for risking your life everyday to keep us safe. I hope you will come home as early as possible and be welcomed open armed by a grateful nation. God Bless all of you.
I took these pictures of our home today. I thought those living in warmer climes might enjoy it. It’s still snowing, so I will be out shoveling tomorrow. I tried to get my wife to be with in the first picture, but she has been camera shy since I met her, so that didn’t fly. The next photo is Erling, a young 12 year old woodworker, who also happens to be my grandson, scroll sawing a trivet as a Christmas present to his mom. He did a fantastic job on it and I think he is better at scrolling than me already. My youngest grandson Vidar also did some very nice scrolled presents, but (stupid me) I forgot to take a picture. Maybe next year. Thanks for stopping in.
Here’s what we woke up to this morning. My wife agreed with all of you who very kindly advised me not to shovel snow, so she called my Son and had him send our youngest grandson 10 years old to do the shoveling. This is a little difficult for me as I am not used to having others do my work. I am pretty lazy though, so it shouldn’t be too hard to get used to. The last picture is Vidar at work. He’s doing a great job too!
I hope you don’t mind me posting all these pictures. It’s just that we rarely get so much snow. From what some of you told me there is quite a bit coming down in different places in the States too. My advice is: Get out your Grand children and shovel some snow!! LOL.
Take care and have a safe holiday season!!
