Good morning Ladies ! I hope you are having a nice weekend where you are. It is relatively warm here today so far , 16f after having a few days in the past week down to minus 12 and a windchill too. The joys of Minnesota ! We also had a light snowshower last night.
Last Sunday we went to Church , and had a nice visiting priest , he was a little hard to understand but we did get what he was saying. Afterwards we had a nice time at home and then went to a local restaurant for dinner. The kids were off school Monday for MLK day. On Tuesday I was able to call my Mom and wish her a happy Birthday. She said ” I am getting on in years” but she is the one who always says your as young as you feel! I am hoping to see her in person this summer. On Tuesday morning I got the sad news that my Uncle , Aunts husband had passed away after a few years in declining health. He lived his life to the fullest, he was a chef who worked hard and also played hard in his freetime. He was always the life of the party and will be missed . I was able to talk to my Aunt over the phone that morning which was nice to comfort her. I watched the funeral mass online earlier today. May he rest in peace , a man of great faith . Wednesday and Thursday went by pretty much as normal. We did get a new heater installed in the garage Wednesday, which is nice , it works on a thermostat so can be set to turn off.
Today we have basement projects we will be working on in hopes to soon complete the bedroom and bathroom. The boys are going to go snowmobiling with friends of ours , all I can say is brrr!!

Good morning Ladies ! I am back after a two week break. I got so busy last weekend I did not get time to write to you ! On the 3rd the kids went back to school after the Christmas break. I think they were all ready for it ! It was a very cold week ! On Friday it reached minus 16 f or minus 27c !! That morning i video messaged my cousin in Perth Australia to chat and tell him about the weather extremes! It was 97f (36c ) with him !! Just 113f difference! Saturday was a day of work around the house . We did a project in our sons room which I will take photos of later for you to see. In the evening we had our friends Brandon , his Fiance Josette and his daughter Maddi over for dinner and games. We ordered pizza and it was very good! During the evening they announced a date for their wedding !!! They will become husband and wife on May 7th and we are looking forward to it now. She has her dress picked out and had a lovely day finding it with her mom and sister.
On Sunday morning i woke up with an upset stomach. I stayed home from Church as a precaution and layed low for the rest of the day. It was a good decision and I kept away from everyone else. I was much better on Monday morning and was able to go to work. on Monday our oldest son had a choir concert at the high school. They all did really well for the hour we were there.
Wednesday evening the kids had church class . During class i stopped at a local store and bumped into my old neighbor Patricia ! She was so excited to see me and gave me a big hug right away ! She really misses our family next door , The new couple are nice but are busy with work a lot of the time. We agreed to have them over to visit one these upcoming weekends. I was glad when Friday came ! The two older kids had sleepovers that night at friends houses. We completed the project in our sons room last night! I was at the thrift store recently and had to take this cup home with me !

Good morning Ladies ! It seems really strange to say that it is January 1st . I want to wish you all a very happy new year for the 12 months ahead . The last 12 were pretty much dealing with and getting through a pandemic, As someone who is an optimist , I hope for a bright and happy 2022 for all of us.
In my last post December 18th we just had our gas stove installed . I have to say it was a great decision to go ahead with it! we were so used to gas , that we felt it was the right choice to go ahead with . On Sunday 19th it was the 4th Sunday of Advent. We had nice family time after church. The new work and school week came around quick but started to go by fast . The kids finished school on Wednesday for the Christmas season. On Thursday I had our work party that started at noon until 2pm. It was a fun time to mingle ! On the way home I did a little last minute shopping ( guilty!) In the early hours of Christmas eve morning , santa made an early visit to our home as is tradition in our half German household ! The kids stockings were filled and they also got some other wrapped gifts he dropped off! There was excitement for a while then we had a nice brunch. At about 3pm after packing up we made the 2 hour journey to the in-laws !
After a few stops we arrived at 5.40 pm in time for dinner. Unfortunately my one Brother -in-law and his wife and family had flu and could not make it . A few family gifts were exchanged that evening as well ! Christmas morning came and santa had showed up at Grandma’s house also !! What a guy ! We did get to see my other brother-in-law , his wife and their adorable 8 month old son also . After Christmas morning church we had a nice lunch and chatted for a few hours. In the evening we made the journey back home. We did bring back more than we came with ! Sunday was a nice day to relax. On Tuesday our youngest got his cast off after his shinbone fracture and they put him in a boot as the last part of his rehabilitation . He can now walk with the boot and take it off at night and have a proper shower or bath! He is doing so well! Also on Tuesday the older kids and their friend Maddi went to see Spiderman. Yesterday we went out for brunch to one of our favorite restaurants Perkins for a nice brunch treat! Then we made a nice dinner where the kids contributed to make. We made it to midnight by watching some old tv shows. I Am growing weary of the countdown tv specials with bands and individuals performing I do not even know ! Is anyone else on the same page with me ? !
