Merry Christmas

It is almost 10pm on Christmas Eve and everyone is gone. We had a wonderful dinner with Lonn, LoraLee, Katie and Nat. Our friends Robyn and Claire also joined us. We enjoyed beef filet Mignon roast, garlic mashed potatoes, fruit salad and a wonderful salad made by Robyn. Dessert by LoraLee was pumpkin pie and chocolate/cherry cake--YUM! It was a very enjoyable evening eating, drinking, eating some more and visiting.

When LoraLee and Lonn moved into their new home recently, LoraLee mentioned that she would like a bench and coat rack for the new mud room. Michael built her both as her Christmas gift--the project turned out very nicely! I received great new books, a quilting pattern and a gift certificate to the quilt store in Billings all of which I love. The kids gave Michael a new vest and a new tool carrier--he is delighted! Christmas Eve with family is the best!

Some of the winter scenes from our walk this morning.

Today was my Daddy's birthday, he would have been 81 years old. He has been gone 7 years and we miss him greatly. I too miss my side of the family during Christmas--we are very close and until I married Michael 15 years ago, I had never been away from home on Christmas but once. But, marriage is a compromise and I understand that Michael enjoys being here in Montana as I enjoy being in Arkansas so we alternate years. It works.
Merry Christmas to all our friends and family!
