I had a whole post written, and when I saved it, it disappeared!  These shots are of just a few activities during the holidays that caused me to take a Xanga break!  Hope and pray that the New Year draws us all closer to our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ!

God bless your day!


About Petty Bunch

The Petty Bunch is what we have called our family since Bill and I (Janina) began our family back in the early 1980s. We have gone down many roads together - homeschooling our kiddoes, enjoying the freedom of entrepreneurship many years, working at "real jobs" other years. Through it all, we have been loved with God's everlasting love, and have found that underneath are His everlasting arms! We are blessed to have been married for over 36 years, and have 3 incredible adult children, a wonderful daughter-in-law, an amazing son-in-law, and SEVEN grandchildren: four precious granddaughters, three handsome grandsons - so far. We are empty nesters, still enjoy the life of an entrepreneur and the freedom it gives us to continue enjoying our kids and now, their kids!

    Great pics. I like the ones of my baby girl, and also the ones of my daughter.
    I think this is the first time I’ve commented on your site. New Record!

    B in for Al here.  I sure enjoyed looking at all the pictures, even the ones I took. ha  I wish I could have seen Pam while she was here.  Adam said he was so happy to see her.  I asked if what he did on New Year’s Eve and he said he popped fireworks and had lots of Hugs.  I told her that was good and he said, “Did you know that Hugs are in plastic bottles and you drink them?”  I told him no, I did not know that. ha  I was hugging him in my lap while he was telling me all this stuff.  I don’t know if it was the two days back home before they came over here but Adam was rotton as an old egg all weekend.  Mean as a snake.  Marty told him to go get Allen for dinner so he walked in the bedroom, turned off the TV and told him Dad wants you.  Naturally Al went ballistic!  Sunday afternoon he spit on Allen, which brought Marty’s blood to a boil.  He just enjoys tormenting his brother.

    Well, did Nate’s team win?!?

  5. I would just like to say, that the Swems don’t think Pam’s blonde because….SHE’S NOT!! She has a couple of blonde highlights around her face, but the rest of her hair is most definitely light brown. Katie is blonde. Amanda is blonde. Pamela is not blonde. 🙂 (For the record, niether am I—and mine’s even quite a bit lighter than hers!)
