ANCESTOR HOMES

I've been looking through old family photographs my sister has scanned and have been drawn to family pictures taken in front of their homes.  I think this is such a treasure.  I absolutely love seeing my ancestors and their homes!
Vine Cottage in Thatcher, Arizona around 1900
Pictured is my 2nd great grandmother, Sylvia Louise Bentley Sessions, 3rd great grandmother, Sarah Ellen Haws Sessions and my great grandmother, Martha Louise Sessions Huntzinger

In 2008, my sister and I took an impromtu family history trip.  We knocked on the door and got a tour of the home!   

This year, my goal is to have a family picture taken in front of our home.

ONE OF OUR WEEKEND EXCURSIONS WAS

getting to explore Battery Russell at Fort Stevens.  It was definitely a highlight for my man clan!
We cannot wait to go back on a camping trip.  It's moved to the top of the list!

WHILE WE WERE IN ASTORIA, WE WENT

to Fort Stevens to see The Peter Iredale, which has been in this spot since 1906.  It was fun to show the boys this history in the sand and ocean - it is amazing!  This wreckage is 108 years old!

THE BEST OF ALL GIFTS AROUND ANY CHRISTMAS TREE: THE PRESENCE

of a happy family all wrapped up in each other - Burton Hillis
Laughter, gluttony, family, spirit and cheer.
We spent last night celebrating with the Youngs and this morning with the Petersons.  Now we're ready for nap!  It's been a wonderful celebration.

Merry Christmas from our family to yours!
