Happy New Year everyone. I hope and pray that this year brings happiness, health and prosperity to everyone. One day this week, Delmar and I visited with my brother, Vern Deatherage, my nephew, Noah Deatherage and great nephew, Chris Deatherage at the new little cabin they are building. It sure is going to be cute when done.

On Firday evening, David Hamby and his friend came to visit us and get some homemade candies I had for them.

We visited with Nora Hunsaker , Lee Williams and Mack Miller.

On Saturday, December 31st , I went to St.John’s in Springfield to welcome my first great grandson, Conner Lane Johnson. Conner weighed in at 7 pounds and 14 ounces and was 20 inches long. Conner joins a big sister, Caidence Michelle Johnson. They are the children of Shawn and Summer Johnson of Fair Grove and the Grand children of Keith and Donna Bannister of Mansfield, Mo. and David and Deanna Johnson of Fair Grove.

On Saturday night, Jack, Barbara and Miracle Breshears came to our house and we ate a lot and watched a couple of movies then at midnight we set off some fireworks outside, then ate some more.

On Sunday I went to Fair Grove to be with Donna Bannister and Caidence Johnson for the night. Mamma and baby Conner got to come home from the hospital on Monday afternoon.

It has turned off cold and is a shock to us after having such nice warm weather for so long.

Until next week, everyone stay warm and safe.
