FRIENDS FROM UP NORTH AND PRESENTS GALORE
We had a wonderful Sunday. Our long time friends (that we call family) were enjoying the sights and sounds of Disneyland for Christmas with their daughter and grandson. They stopped by on their way home Sunday afternoon and we laughed, cried, shared a bucket of KC Chicken and opened wonderful presents they brought for us.
They were in our Church for the 27 years we were there. We were by Karen's bedside when Dani was born. We were at Dani bedside when Levi was born. That's why we call them family. Levi calls me Grandma GG. A treasured memory for Christmas 2012.
They know us well, and we had so much fun opening the gifts they brought. The top picture shows a Christmas Hat Box for me, also a beautiful white and gold stole. Three jars of homemade jam, and a bag of this years almonds from there orchard. The left picture is the fabulous quilt Karen made me with "hats". How special and I love the colors.
You probably guessed the "Fartless Chili Makins" was for my dearest. What a "hoot". Think we'll use this at the next
Chili Cook off at Church. He also go a "Grumpy" coffee mug that didn't get in the picture.
I love the picture of Don with this family he had so much love and ministry in their lives. One of the treasure of ministry are people like this. Karen played the piano at the Church the entire 27 years we were there, and many times when she was battling many health issues.
Thanks for taking the time to share my post and our friends.
