Christmas With Family

Life is good—I use that phrase frequently and today it was so true, life is good.  We were privileged to celebrate Christmas tonight with Nat, Lonn and LoraLee, Katie and Michael, and Laci and John.  Nat suggested we have Christmas at his house—a very good idea to keep him from being out on the roads at night—and he also suggested he provide the meal.  I called one of our local restaurants—yes, they would cater and we ordered up a prime rib with all the fixings. 

Michael, Lonn, Katie and Michael played several games of cribbage while we waited for John and Laci to arrive from Great Falls.  After their arrival, Michael and Lonn went to get the food.  Oh, my goodness—why haven’t we done this before—the food was spectacular!!  And very reasonably priced!! 

After dinner we opened presents before bringing out the desserts then heading off to our respective homes.  It was a wonderful evening spent with our family—we are blessed in so many ways!

This morning was gloomy but warmer than it has been in days.

By mid-afternoon, much of the snow was gone, melted away.  Tonight on the way into town we spotted this herd of elk hanging out with the local cow herd.


I went to yoga this morning and we enjoyed a little Christmas party afterwards.  I was gifted with chokecherry liqueur, a bottle of wine and some homemade body scrub—I have sweet yoga friends!!  Today was probably my last day of yoga until spring, I will miss it and my friends immensely!!

Yea Hoo!!  We ordered an amplifier and antenna system from the 3G Store—it arrived today and guess what—I can use my cellphone inside our house now!!!!  I have contacted Millenicom and am waiting for them to activate our aircard—then we just might be able to use that aircard here at the house as well as in the motorhome—wouldn’t that be great!!!  Goodbye land line!!

I took photos tonight but was using Katie’s camera—will have to get those photos sent to me.

It was a busy but special day—life is good!!
