Forward - From the Heartland of Carolina

This is a continuing story of the journey Forward shared by 2 people, Lynne and Tom. Both love to LIVE life to it's fullest, which currently means spending lots of time outdoors, working on various projects from gardens to patios, flowers to vegetables, sunrises and sunsets, birds and woodland critters, and spending time with family. Don't forget to check the monthly archives, and please feel free to leave us a comment so we know you stopped by.

Wednesday before Christmas...

Lynne's sister, Ruth, and her family were going to be away during the holidays, so we all got together for snacks and a little gift exchanging at their place the Wednesday before Christmas. Naturally, baby Celeste was in very high demand, with everyone wanting to hold her. The grandsons, of course, had their eyes glued to the presents under the tree, and the youngest, John, was the official gift passer this evening. So many faces, so many names, but he got them all right!!!

Another nice family get-together, especially since Ruth and Russ managed to have all 3 of their daughters home at the same time!!! Rare anymore, between college, high school, and various jobs they hold down. And of course, anytime Mom gets to spend a little time with her children or grandchildren or great-grandchildren is a good day for all of us!

Wednesday before Christmas was a good day for all of us!
