We Had a Merry Christmas

Yuma, Arizona        High 56 Low 43

It was cold today and we got what, for here, was quite a bit of rain.

Yesterday the Park put on another dinner but we decided to have our own get together with some of our neighbors.

There were supposed to be 8 people but one couple had to go to Phoenix to get our friend Sharon an emergency gall bladder removal. The hospital here told here that the only doctor that could do the surgery wasn't available until some time in February but her pain got so bad that they drove to the Mayo clinic in Phoenix where they determined that it was bad enough that she couldn't wait for the operation. Hopefully all is going well with her. They are back in Yuma, but she hasn't accepted visitors yet.

Our get together started at 4:00 with appetizers after which we sat around visiting until almost 6:00 when we had dinner.

There was lots of food and everyone got to take home leftovers.

We stayed visiting until after 9:00 So it was a long visit. Also during the evening another couple came to visit.

We held the dinner at our house because we have the most room.

I have another picture of the grand-kids reading the night before Christmas while covered with a embroidered quilt with the story of The Night Before Christmas, which Cindy made several years ago.

Thanks for visiting.

    Hoping Sharon is feeling better soon.
