Merry Christmas and Back In Branson

We arrived in Branson Friday to a temp of 69 and humid. What a difference from Minnesota and wind chills of–35.

On our way back to Missouri we stopped in Albert Lee MN, Mike was pumping gas and I was going to drive, so I got out of the passenger seat and went to get in the drivers side. Well as soon as closed the door the cat (Stormy or better known as devil kitty) hit the door locks. Luckily Mike had a spare key in his wallet. All ended well, the cat is living happily in Albert Lee. Hopefully she finds a good family (only kidding she is here with us).

We had a busy few day back home. Tuesday was our granddaughter Amanda's 19th birthday party. She did the cooking and made us a delicious meal of mushroom cream sauce over tortellini, and a white chocolate cheese cake. Everything was oh so good.

Before going to my dads on Wed. we spent time visiting with friends and exchanging gifts with my girlfriends. I will miss them.

Christmas Eve we spent with the family at my dad’s house. There was 18 of us and it was a great time. More food then we could eat. I think we spent most of time home eating.

Christmas day was very busy. We started the morning at Mike’s sister Donna’s and brother-in-law Leroy’s house. His sister Dyanne was also there. His niece Debbie and her friend Katie also came.

Then we went to our daughter Teresa’s house for breakfast and to open presents. DSC_0048

Our grandkids, Ryan 18, Matt 14, Lizzy 16 and Amanda 19. We are so proud and love these 4 kids so much. They are all great kids.

After Teresa’s we went to our son Rich’s, to visit him and his wife Marion and our Grand dog Louie. DSC_0057

This was our last stop before taking off for Branson. It is so hard saying goodbye to the family, always a sad time for me.

What a wonderful Christmas, we were able to spent time with our family and friends on this special holiday.

Happy New Year To All..
