Sac City Christmas Eve, 2013

 Christmas Eve in Lake View (Iowa) at Aunt Mary's this year was fun!  Here's Mary digging treats out of her Christmas sock 'annex' bag.  (From left:  Ann, Mary, Rachel, Grandma Jean, Claire)
 All the hand-made knitted socks are hanging over the fireplace with care!
From left:  Samantha, Mick, Will, John, Marty, Kathy
All watching Marty read off Crayola colors from his 96-crayon box!  (Recently Marty told us he'd never had the big box of crayons as a kid... so he got one in his Christmas sock!)

Walker Christmas, Stanhope, Iowa

 The really cute Christmas tree Allison and Samantha got us, and then decorated.
 Alex and Allison opening gifts.
 John opening presents.
Did Santa arrive early??  (With Marty on the couch and Samantha as the Christmas elf handing out presents.)
The tree is really pretty after dark, but hard to get a good picture of it then.

The two orphans, Ron and Patrick, the early years. December 14, 2013

 This one is dated January 25, 2009.  From the beginning, they were inseparable.
 This one has a date of February 9, 2009.  Our veterinarian said they were born around the 10th of May, 2008.
 I think this is one of the earliest pictures of Ron and Patrick, dated June 28, 2008.  (This is before they were IN our house--before they were orphans.)
 Patrick and Ron in the bay window on May 12, 2009.
This is the most recent picture here.  John took it with his phone as the boys were cuddling with him on his bed a couple weeks ago!
