My Favorite...

I LOVE our Family Christmas Party. It's the ONLY time of the year that all of my siblings & spouses and my parents are together with NO kids. This year David and Gay were the amazing hosts and we had a great time as usual.

I Sure Do LOVE my FAMILY!!!

My awesome Parents!

I'm a GREAT Aunt...again!

I know this is old news, but I wanted to still post on it. Carly had her little 'Gracilyn' on December 19th. She weighed 6lbs 9oz and was 20 inches long. She is the first Great-grand daughter on our side, so you can imagine how spoiled she is going to be! I still can't believe that my sister is a doubt she will be an awesome one!!!

Another Update on my Dad...

I need to apologize for not updating my blog earlier about my dad. There just hasn't been much to update! Like I said in a prior post, his surgery went well. He went back down to Tucson this past Wednesday and had his Radiation Plaque removed. They just did it under local anesthetic and he returned home to the ranch later that day. I got to see him that afternoon and he looked pretty rough. Since they had to move a muscle to get the Plaque in there, he is seeing double vision out of that eye and will be for some time. I think his biggest challenges are still ahead of him with getting use to only have full usage of one eye. We appreciate everyone's thoughts and prayers and ask for continued prayers that he will be able to adjust to this quickly. I sure do love my daddy!!!

Nativity 2010...

Any of you that know my mom knows that she has a hundred Christmas traditions!! One tradition I am truly grateful for is the reinactment of the Christmas Story. I love how excited the kids are to get all dressed up, then as soon as the story starts being read from the Bible they all settle down and get reverent. The spirit is always so strong!!

Nolan (Joseph), Brock (Donkey), Amelia (Mary), and Taelee (Baby Jesus)

Our kids all dressed up...except Paul but he got to hold the star.

Update on my Dad...

Just wanted to give a quick update on my dad...

My sister called me about 9:00 this morning saying that they had just talked to Dr. Joffey and that the surgery went well. The Dr. anticipates that he will be in some pain. He has a follow up tomorrow(Saturday) morning with Dr. Joffey and if all is still well they will be able to head home.

Due to the radiation he will have to stay away from people as much as possible so my mom plans on keeping him at their home out at the ranch until his surgery next week.

On behalf of the Tenney Family...we want to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers for our Dad. Our family truly has felt them all!!
