Had a wonderful Christmas.  Lots of family and food.  Neat gifts too and got to hold newest great granddaughter.  She is a month old and so cute.  Took 4 generation picture and many others.  Kids had a hey day opening their gifts. Adults had a great time too.  We had some rough weather in the morning but the sky turned blue and sunshine and it was really nice the rest of the day.

We are having a spell of pretty good weather.  It is actually in the 30's.  After many days of way below zero wind chills and cold temperatures, we can enjoy some sunshine.  Although the sun doesn't make it any warmer, at least it melts some of the snow pack.  The roads got a real blast of snow yesterday and the snow stuck wherever the sun melted what was left on the road.  It made for dangerous travel for many.

Christmas Brunch

I have been invited to a nearby town for a Christmas Brunch Saturday morning.  I am very excited about going as will be seeing a good friend and also a daughter there.  I sure hope it doesn't snow.  The back blacktops are not the best.  Actually the highway is just getting fairly decent.  I am looking forward to going as I know it will be a lot of fun.

Bitter Cold

We have bitterly cold weather here.  But we are very blessed in that we do not have freezing rain as some states are enduring.  We also don't have snow but I am sure it is on it's way next week.  The sun is out but it doesn't do any good as far as warming things up.  The North wind takes care of that. I heard there are hundreds of people in the hospitals all over with frostbite.  You just can't stay outside very long.  It's so had to breathe too for those with COPD.

Thanksgiving Dinner

I had a wonderful Thanksgiving this year.  There was so much delicious food.  We played some really fun games and had so many laughs.  Of course, then it was time to bring out the cameras and take the pictures of all the families.  They always do a funny one too.  I never know what to do in that one. A granddaughter wanted a picture of her two grandmothers kissing her so that was different.  A good time was had by everyone.
