Merry Christmas!

We had a wonderful Christmas!  And a bonus, totally unexpected white Christmas.  The weather predictions said snow flurries.  I think the “flurries” ended at about three or four inches.  We all loved it!DSC_4900 DSC_4902 DSC_4903 DSC_4904 DSC_4905 DSC_4907 DSC_4908

Traditional Christmas Eve at Deedie and Bruce’s house.  Oh, except for the fact there was not a fifth wheel in the driveway at their house.  A few nights before it caught fire and burned up.  They were really lucky as this happened in the middle of the night and Deedie just happened to wake up and see the flames shooting out.  The fire department thinks it started in the electric box.  So glad it did not lick the house and catch it on fire!

Christmas Day we did not have the kids but it was a great day.  Molly, Raylan, Sarah, John, and Lauren; Cynthia; Ross and I; Kathleen, Mike, Zachary, and Zane.  Great food – again! – and wonderful visiting.
