Ken and Debbie Cederlind came down last Tuesday evening to her mother, Bonnie Phipps and stayed all night so they would be here for Christmas.

Christmas dinner was at Roy and Sue Freeman’s and their guests were Cecilia Edwards, Danny Thurman, Ken and Debbie Cederlind, Michael and Wendee Freeman, Matt, Madison, Sydnee, Alexis, Lonnie and Pam Crim, Logan, Alexa, Paola, Bonnie Phipps, Moe and Kaylynn Todd and Alaya.

I took my news and eggs in last Monday and then I stopped by Clinkingbeards and gave them a Christmas gift on my way home and they were all eating dinner with their relatives.

George and Violet came and picked up their eggs and later on Imogene Madewell came by with a plate full of goodies. That evening Kay stopped by on her way home with a gift from the Douglas County Herald. I sure appreciate all my gifts and I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Last Tuesday Charlotte Bock stopped by Jessie Jr.’s and Ben Three Eagle’s and their brother-in-law came up and gave me a baked gift. Chad and Laura Blakey came by with their Christmas gift before going on to Mark and Sherry’s. Larry Haden and son came by for their carrot cake.

Christmas at my house Wednesday was good. Ellis got here first so I cooked breakfast for us and then he peeled my potatoes for me and we got them on the stove. Vernal Blakey brought Joel’s mother, Lucie Glaze, down and Joel and Monica Reemes, Lakota Blakey, Brittany Kutz, Justin and Tara Coonce, Jett, Johnathan and Annie Blakey, Alexia, Chase Blakey, Blythe and Chesnea, Trae Shelton and Kendra Dering were all here. We opened presents and then we ate a big, nice meal and then we took pictures before they all started to leave.

I took eggs to the ladies in the courthouse onThursday. I went into town Friday and took some papers in and then I stopped by Martin Hathcock’s and gave him some Christmas cards that I had been carrying around and I got to see Bob and Teri Hathcock who had just brought Martin home.

Sherry Blakey, Mark Weston, Dustin and Kelsey Seaborn and Bentlee came over and got their Christmas presents and little Bentlee sure is growing.

Saturday I went over and visited with Sally Prock and then on my way home I stopped by Patty Kraft’s to visit with her, but she wasn’t home. I hope she is doing okay. That evening James came by and got his goodies, but we forgot his carrot cake so he will have to come back.

It was cold going to church Sunday and that afternoon Mary Martha stopped by and picked up my Best Choice labels.

Keep praying for all our sick folks.

My prayers and sympathy goes out to all the ones who have lost a loved one and there is a long list of them.

Please keep our leaders and the men and women in the service and their families and the ones in training in your prayers.
