Not alot to post.  Still have the kids and Dad over for supper every other week.
Now that Dwayne is laid off, we've gone back to our schedule of going to April's every Wednesday.  Sure do love those visits.
Dad gets so lonely.  He comes down to visit a lot more.  Sometimes twice in one day.  He ate supper with us last night.
The most "excitement" I've had is redoing our guest bathroom.  It's rather small so you would think it's no big deal.  Wrong!  Dwayne took the trim and fixtures out.  Removed the toilet stool and sink.  Found a small hole in the water line and had to go to the basement and remove sheet rock to fix line.
He's not too happy of a camper.  He wasn't in favor of me redoing the bathroom in the first place.  First, I thought (stupid of me) I would just rehang the wallpaper over the old.  Well, duh!  That doesn't work.  So I spent Saturday evening and Sunday evening stripping wallpaper.  Now Dwayne says it needs to be painted first as the sizing I put on years ago is not any good.  I'm good at wallpapering but now I have my doubts.  I kind of need Dwayne to help me hold up the wallpaper as I line it up but he said he doesn't deal with wallpaper.  I've dug myself into a big mess.  Hopefully, this coming Saturday I can get it done.  It will look nice once it's done.  Even Chad didn't want me to change it.  He's like, "it's the only room in the house that's original".  lol  Told him April's room hasn't changed.  The kids want the house the same as when they grew up.  I need to update from time to time.

I am grateful to have a house/home the kids want to come home to.

Catching up:

End of year.  We didn't do anything special, just stayed home.
Dad and I did go to my Aunt Geri's birthday party on Saturday, 31st.  Aunt Geri is my only living aunt left on my Mom's side of the family.  She was married to my Uncle Junior Williams.  We had a good time visiting and enjoying the joy Aunt Geri was having.  Love her.

Iva turned 7 months old.

Saturday, January 7th.
We had a gift certificate for AppleBees so we went out to eat a late lunch.  The food was good this time.  Bought groceries and then home.

Sunday, January 8th
I went to church and then in the evening, we went to Mike and April's.  Had fun playing with Cash.  Iva is such a good baby and always seems happy.

Bittersweet day as it would have been Wayne's birthday.  Sure do miss him.  Even more since Momma died.

Monday, January 9th.
My sister, Katie's birthday.

Instead of prayer meeting at Dad's, we went to Paul and Katie's for supper and prayer meeting.  Paul had supper ready and had made Kate a four tiered cake.  It was very good.  We had a good time.

We're starting off the New Year with Dwayne laid off from work, but getting some much needed projects done around the place.  Me, I've been super tired.  (Lupus crap)  I fall asleep on the couch about every night but I don't hurt too bad so that is good.
We're enjoying life with our adult kids and looking to the future for more good things to happen.

I am grateful for each day of my life.
