I would love to have been there in Dillon Montana with my daughter and son-in-law Meredythe and Joey Wedding but old lady Flo (I’m 95) not flying anymore.
Luckily my lovely daughter Meredythe agreed to do my shopping for me with all my Wedding Family. All I had to do was send her a check.
Just before Christmas Day she flew to Ohio for her grand daughter and my great granddaughter Holli Carpenter’s nurses pinning in Springfield Ohio. So she got a new outfit (Her Christmas present from me) to wear to the ceremony. And here she is wearing it.
Here is my granddaughter Jodi wearing the blouse and necklace gifts from me. You look very pretty Sweetheart. Jodi had one of the girls who work at Gables Nursing Home in Marysville Ohio take this picture with Jodi’s IPad and send it to me here in Florida.
With so much excitement going on at holiday time Meredythe forgot to tell me what I gave to Levi and Holli in Ohio. But whatever it was I’m sure they were happy with it.
Now she flew back home to get ready for Christmas with all the other ones of my family in Dillon
Dillon is a little town nestled between two snow capped mountain ranges. Having been through the Rocky Mountains several times in a car I can picture that little scene. Can you?
Now let’s go inside and see actual pictures and not have to imagine. Since Joey is an avid hunter you see mounted deer heads on their walls. Holding true to the north western thyme.
Meredythe changes the scene with this Christmas decorated table holding some of her treasures.
A group of Shirley Temple dolls with two little Madame Alexander doll in front and Lawton dolls Tom Sawyer, Oliver Twist the English orphan who ask for the second bowl of porridge and Mary Tilton the little girl who came over on the Mayflower.
Also photo of her grandsons and my great grandsons Jeffrey and Darren when they were little and a picture of Levi an Holli my great grandchildren sitting on Santa’s lap, a Santa Claus, a book “‘The Night Before Christmas” a keepsake from Dean and Jodi’s childhood among other treasures.
Here is the picture I have of Levi and Holli on Santa’s lap, so precious!
Dean and Joey went out in the woods and cut down a tree for each of them. Meredythe said theirs was a Charley Brown tree. Not many branches!!
That Shirley Temple doll looks like a little girl standing there, doesn’t it? She is from my collection of eleven Shirley Temple dolls most of them I gave to Meredythe for her doll collection.
And now for the other gifts from me
Joey showing the new watch I gave him and Dean seated holding his gifts
Patricia, Deans pretty wife with gifts
Jeffrey and Maegan…. they just purchased their first home in Three Forks Montana
Darren always the comedian. He did a show for television hunting in mines for gold that robbers had stashed. You should have seen him on his galloping horse going across the prairie with the man from the TV station. He was a real cowboy!
My great granddaughter Terra with Jake. Aren’t they adorable together?
And now for my great great grandson. Darren and Diana’s little boy Jayden. I think he likes what I gave him.
Little three year old Isaiah, Jayden’s brother, opening his gift.
Hey Isaiah don’t cut down your Gramma Pat’s Christmas tree with that buzz saw.
I gotta say YOU DONE GOOD Meredythe. Thank you so much for all your effort making everyone happy for your mom!!!!
I couldn’t have done it WITHOUT YOU!!
