Sad ending ....

 *This is from my FB page today, so I will put it here also*
( my blog, "Our Place")

~~a sad-and expensive end to 2012 for us...last night-just after dark- we got a call that one of our young 'heifers' had gotten out of our back pa
sture and got hit by a car and killed! A young girl was driving alone, but, thankfully, was not hurt. Charles went over there-(one street over)-At best we will be out the cost of the young cow...which would have been worth around $700.00 presently) Hopefully, the girl's insurance will cover her damages to her car! (I sure hope so because we can't afford another big bill to pay)

It was a freak thing to happen...sometimes young cows manage to get out, in spite of our best efforts to keep the fences in good shape!...The animal control people were there and Charles was not held responsible for this.

Apart from the $$ part, I am very sad about the loss of this beautiful little cow. She was one of the prettiest ones we've had.

This is a picture of "April" when she was just a day or so old, with her mom, Cloud.

The link to my blog shows a more recent pic of her.

Some shots of our Christmas, 2012

 ( I'm sorry I am still without picture sharing deal with my blogger account , so these are pictures and posts from FaceBook...Will try to get back to normal soon!)

This is our Christmas tree before we started passing out the gifts! Everybody gives each family member a gift (or several gifts) -and there are 13 of us- so it adds up to a room full of gifts to open!
 (click on pictures to see better)

Here we are, doing our thing...and we have to do this picture every year! :)

Here's a little video of Daniel , giving Drake his Christmas gift! (my oldest and youngest grandsons.)

Christmas at our house, 2012-The Grandkids! (14 photos)

Zach and Emmy ~ Christmas Eve!
We had a great Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, despite the fact that several of us have been sick with colds. (Tina, Charles , baby Drake and myself)...and later, Joy and Chris!!

In spite of all that, our baby managed to enjoy his first Christmas, but you can tell in this picture that he is not feeling so great! Cute as ever, tho!

I will post more pics later.

Alli and Marc both had good cameras so I'm not without pictures of our baby boy's 1st Christmas!!

Hope you've all had a Merry Christmas!

~And here's Alli~

~And here's Alli~
...and here is my only girl grand baby, Alli, with her big brothers, Dan and Brian! This was her first Christmas. She would have her 1st birthday the day after Christmas.
 (and now she's almost 22!!)

:) I wanted to name our almost Christmas babe, "Merry Noel," but Tina didn't go along with that! lol...
 Alli has said she's glad her mom didn't let me name her that- Haha... She likes her name Allison Brooke better! ;)

(...but she's known, far and wide, as just "Alli!")
