Sunset on Pensacola Beach

Let's See If This Works

ALL RIGHT!   I did get a picture up.  But I have over 1000 on my IPad and it will only let me upload about 30% of them.  I am so confused!
So it is January 8, 2017 and may I actually say it is COLD here.  It was 27 degrees this morning and the banana plants have had it.   They will shoot up in the spring.  I had actually gave up on my blogs because nothing would really work and I was so frustrated with the whole set up.  
We have had a wonderful holiday season from Thanksgiving to New years.

So this is what I am thinking.  I have so many pictures throughout the year that I am not going to chronologically.   I will upload a picture and explain.  

Mom and Dad........Our neighbors had a day long picnic/party at Navarre Beach for the whole neighborhood.   Great food and friends.  So fun.   Thanks Cheryl and Lester!

Kip and John.........They moved into Nicole and Lamont's house after the air force moved Lamont to Tampa.  I was so sad to loose them but love Kip and John!  We have had dinners together and went to the Trolley Christmas Festival in Pensacola together also.  They LOVE their dogs!

Stuffed Pumpkins........Mom and I made these stuffed decorative pumpkins for everyone (the women) at Thanksgiving.  They were so easy to sew up and stuff.  I think they were appreciated by all my cousins.

Cousins........We had many cousins and cousins for Thanksgiving.  Our tradition is to eat at Hemingway's on Wednesday night and then everyone spent the day eating turkey on Thanksgiving day.  States represented were Oregon, Texas, Georgia, Minnesota, Florida, and Indiana.  I love my family!!!

Disney Castle.......This was such a treat for me.  We were at Disney World January, 2016 and Christmas decorations were still up.   I have never been there during Christmas time and I was in Disney heaven!  Amazingly beautiful....

Blue Angels.......How often do I get to see them?  All the time!   They fly over our house and when I am driving down 98 to Walmart it is not unusual to see them practicing.  When they come home Sunday evenings after shows throughout the country - they always fly down the length of the beach to say hello.  Blue Angels are loved in Pensacola!

Disney Vacation Club ......... Best decision I made!   We have now had 4 visits to Disney through the DVC and if I was not a member, it would of been priced approx. $500 at night.  We have been there 13 nights total.   Do the math.

 Kacey and her travels.........Stopped to see Tony, our financial advisor in Carmel, Indiana on the way to see Ronnie.  Kacey was welcomed to the meeting.  After all, she spends enough of the money for her medical bills.

Pool........Love the pool.  I love the pool.   Just love the pool.   Enough said.

Bill and Sue..........Sometimes neighbors hardly speak but in our neighborhood, we all know each other and sometimes party together.   Bill is the neighborhood king.   He knows all!  And in all seriousness, he has helped us out so many times that we can not thank him enough.   Love you two!!!

Bubba Watson ........... famous golfer and loves Pensacola.  He is here a lot and puts money into different businesses like the baseball park and opened an ice cream parlor on Paxafox street.  (A bit pricey though.)

C Pap machine........Yes I now have one.  I wasn't thrilled but it is great controlling an AFIB heart.  But after the first night, my gosh!!!!   I noticed a big difference.  Not tired during the day, no more snoring, and I have never gotten up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom since I have been using it.  (6 months)   I have woken up with the tube wrapped around my neck a few times.   I think it is trying to kill me.

AC-130 Gunship.........This picture does not do justice to the incredible gunship model that Dad made for Lamont.   He worked months on this and it now sits in Lamont's office.  It is beautiful.

My beach.......yes, I do think of it as my beach.   I think that is how everyone feels that lives here.

Me...........I think this is Cheeseburger in Paradise in Destin.

Dave and I........In case you don't know who this is - he is my big brother Dave.  He will be moving here in 7 months.   Retirement is great!   I have his first 4 months planned out with activities. other brother.  He and I went to Disney in September and he had a blast.   Stayed at the Polynesian so he is going to get spoiled quickly.   Ron had not been to Disney since before Epcot was built.  He is SO lucky to have me for a sister.  He-He

Well,  this was a good start to pictures from 2016.  It was a great year and I am expecting the same in 2017.  We are off now to exchange 2 Christmas gifts.   We waited for NO CROWDS.   Then Olive Garden.   Take care and keep warm!
