Merry Christmas

Riverton, Utah High 34 Low 18

I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

My daughters are on opposite ends of the table.

Yesterday I went to breakfast with two of my daughters, my son in law, four grandchildren and my second youngest son. It was good to see the Californian's again. My daughter and Son in Law said they were freezing, but it was good that they came to spend Christmas here instead of in their swimming pool in California. I wasn't expecting Ted, but he came also.

My son in law Ken is closest to the photographer.

This is my son Ted. He's quite the ham. Sorry about the quality of the photo, but is the best one I got.

This morning we got woke up early by two excited children. They just had to see what Santa had left for them. Devon got a football, a new basketball, and a basketball standard to go with it. He acted happy to be able to practice at home instead of at the neighbors. Allyssia got some Eyore slipper that we got for here in Skagway when we were there. Cindy got a ruby heart neckless with matching ear-rings that she wasn't expecting. There were also lots more presents for everyone.

She was already wearing her slippers.

After that, we went to Cindy's Mom's in Orem for Christmas breakfast. There were lots more grand kids and their parents. Cindy's Mom seemed to be in good spirits today. We talked to Cindy's son in Phoenix and I talked to my son in Savannah.

My Mother in law seemed to be in good health. She soon will be 85.

We got to see two other grand-sons. The little four year old really likes to show off for the camera.

Here I am in my new sweater.
It was a good day being able to see everyone and visiting with all of them. This time of year should be about family and not just about the gifts.

Thanks for visiting.


  1. Definitely a Merry Christmas when it's spent with family. But now that Christmas is over (or almost over) you need to get out of that snow.
