Merry Christmas

Good morning and Merry Christmas. We opened our Christmas presents yesterday and had our traditional Christmas eve quiche for dinner. Today we woke up to snow so now we have a very white Christmas. We are going to start cooking the Turkey soon and just stay in and stay warm today. Hope all of you have a nice Christmas.

John & Mike are both here

Mike on left and John on right

Good morning everyone. Our sons John & Mike are both here for the holidays. John got in yesterday about noon after driving up from Florida. Mike got in the day before yesterday from Fort Leonard Wood, Mo after I picked him up. John & Mike haven't seen each other in 7 years but they have talked on the phone several times. Mike is in the Army and John in the Navy. John took a much needed nap yesterday afternoon and after a dinner of Lasagna they went out together and played pool until late. I was asleep when they got in last night but It's really nice to see them together. I'm really enjoying them.

Getting ready for Christmas

Our sons John and Mike are both coming home for Christmas this year. My wife Vicki decorated the house and has things all ready for them. Mike comes home this Friday from Fort Leonard Wood, Mo, and John will be driving up starting Friday morning from Mayport Naval Base in Florida and should be here Saturday. We're really looking forward to having them both for Christmas. This will be the first Christmas they have spent together in 7 years.
