Christmas at the Essers

Connie and Garry hosted an open house for the Kopczynski's on Sunday.  We were all grateful for the good weather that enabled the Spokane relatives to travel to Moscow.  Connie and Garry recently remodeled their living space and it proved a perfect place to sit, visit, and eat!
The hardwood floors are new, but the couch is old - it came from our family home after Mom died.  Connie and Garry buy a live tree every year from the St. Mary's School Fundraiser and decorate it with hand-made ornaments and gifts from students and extended family.   I loved visiting with Karlee.   She told me about her dream to have her own classroom by this time next year.  She also fell in love with her boyfriend, John's, family in Missouri, riding horses of all things. 

John and Garry catching up on fishing stories!

Julia is happy to be home and warm!

Colin loved playing Grandma's old player piano
Sitting in front of the new bay window and gas fireplace = Cozy and priceless!

This is our group picture - all 19 of us!  Thank you, Connie & Garry
