Two christmas nuts!




We went over to Aaron and Olivia's house and Meradeth opened up her presents. This balerina dress was one of them. Then they both got in a picture and this was the result. I couldn't stop laughing.

Flowers from Joe

Joe brought me these flowers today because he said I need some cheering up after my dentist appointment the other day. You just cannot tell how beautiful they are in this picture.

Mera at Najoqui falls



This is our favorite water fall which is about 35 min. away from us. When it rains good it starts to flow good. Mera loved standing right under it.

A little bit of Iowa...in TN

Our backyard...we got about an inch of snow. It's noon now, and the snow has disappeared! :)

New Office

This is my new office! Note the my lovely work station area and the polka dot furniture I picked out for the lobby. The view of the van and the men in striped jump suits across the street is the inmate work crew waiting to get back into the jail for dinner. The jail is the big white building you see. When Eric is working and he arrests someone, he pulls his car into that garage door and takes the prisoner into the jail.
