Dad And Mom Golden Christmas Eve

Here are a few pictures that were taken at Betty and John's this Christmas eve.
Dad and Mom Golden were in fine shape and feeling alright.
Dad made Mom sit on his knee and I snapped this picture of the two old lovebirds!

Betty....Dad's oldest daughter, mother of five children, holding her latest baby...puppy, Molly.
Matthew, Betty and John's number four child with Katy, John's cat.
Gary, Dad's number four child with his two boys, James and Christopher.
The King of the family but NOT the boss!
Darrell, Sandra's son and Dad Golden's pride and joy.

My that Molly is sure one spoiled doggie!!

Grampa Golden beating his grandsons at a game of pool.Grandchild James and Gracey's boy, Eric.

John, Betty's husband showing off his camera to Dad Golden.
Where there is a cat around, you will find Bernie and Gary, best friends, fighting over who is going to hug it!
Little John, Betty's second child holding Katy. I must also say that the cat is spoiled rotten too!!
Mom Golden trying to take a picture of Dad.Matthew, Betty's son holding that spoiled kitty.

Who knows WHAT trouble this guy is up to?

I reckon nothin' good!

Uncle Bernie with his girl, Betty's oldest daughter, our Rachel, the heart of our family!
Jeff, Teddy and Lois's third child standing behind Grampa Golden.

I think, by the looks of it Grampa Golden won the game.

When we were kids he ALWAYS won the game!Checkers and Scrabble.! He would NEVER let us win. When we heard his whistling, THEN we knew that we were skunked.And we were sore losers too!

Justin and Jeff have always been the best of friends. All the cousins get along and are best friends!
Rachel, the oldest grandchild taking Grampa home in her smart little car.
Jordan is Gracey's little grand kid and Grampa's third great grandchild..
Good night Dad Golden and sweet dreams. Mom Golden will be home in a couple of hours!
How did THIS trouble maker get in here twice and what HAS he been up to anyway?!!
Chase, Gracey's oldest grandchild and Grampa Golden's oldest great grandchild.

Well I am tired!

Tomorrow Rachel and I are taking Dad Golden to the hospital for his operation, so I had better go to bed!

Thank you for all your prayers and for all your future prayers for my dad....Love Terry

Dear Terry,
it's Thursday morning in Norway and I'm lifting Dad Golden up in front of the Lord's throne.
I greet him with Numbers 6:24
24The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:

25The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:

26The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace
Fom Felisol

PS The pictures from Christmas were wonderful. What a thriving, happy family, I sure would like to be a fly on the wall in that lively party. Dad Golden shooting pool, the boys and the cat, and best of all Terry and Gary, partners in crime. Bet you have had a wonderful childhood.
