Christmas Visits

Riverton, Utah High 48 Low 39

It is a lot warmer than usual for this time of year. It is raining now and is supposed to rain all day and again tomorrow.

We went to the cannery and canned some things for Christmas presents and Cindy got a picture of me in the clothes they have you wear while canning.
We spent the day yesterday visiting and being visited. In the morning we went to see Cindy’s mom and to deliver her birthday present and Christmas present. Cindy had a variety of quilt for her to choose from. This picture is the one she chose.
After we got home, my two sons and daughter-in-law came to visit us. They each got to choose which quilt they wanted. Nick and his wife Susie are visiting from Michigan. We had a long visit with them.

Nick is the youngest in my family.

Ted is starting a poutaine business with a portable cook shack that travels to different events. He said he has many different versions of poutains. We tried some of them at Andrea’s wedding and they are very good. The only other time we have had them was in Montreal. He says he is doing well enough at it that he is going to open a restaurant in Salt Lake selling them to supplement his food wagon. He is also talking about quitting his day job.

We have a ceramic dog that Penny now ignores, but Ted moved it around, and got Penny barking at it. It was funny to watch. Usually she doesn't make much noise except when she wants to play.

My older son and daughter-in-law and two grandkids, Sage and Micah, came to visit from Boise. Don and Bridget got to choose a quilt for their family. This must be quilt year. 
Sage, my 13 year old granddaughter had seen pictures of Penny from our blog. She gave us a pencil picture she had drawn of Penny for Christmas. We think she did a good job of drawing Penny. She told me she should have put more hair in front of her eyes, but I told her Penny needed to have the hair cut from her eyes, but wouldn't let us do it. They couldn't believe how small Penny actual is. Sage and Micah had fun play with her, and of course Alyssia always plays with her.

Alyssia always like to play with Penny.
It was good to see family at this time of year.

We hope you and yours are having a good Christmas season this year.

Thanks for visiting.
