On Christmas day the weather was absolutely beautiful, so Maxey and I worked in the yard together. It was a great day! That evening Dawn and Gage came over for supper. Gage requested chicken and dumplings; we all ate until we were about to burst. Then we drove around Carrollton enjoying everyone's Christmas lights.
The day after Christmas Kit, Ashley and Foster came to town. What a wonderful family! We SO ENJOYED them! They got to stay until Sunday afternoon. Maile and Jeremy got back from their visit in Amarillo Saturday night, so we all got to be together all day Sunday! It was terrific! We all had breakfast together, played all morning with Foster, ate a huge lunch of chicken-fried steak, then exchanged gifts in the afternoon just before Kit, Ashley and Foster had to go home.
The weather was so nice that Foster got to spend a lot of time playing outside. I had acquired a little push car for him. He loved it! And I had gotten a teepee with tunnels which I set up in the living room. We had so much fun! Our neighbors had loaned us the Fisher Price Nativity Set which I set up on the hearth of the fireplace. Foster and Precious played and played with it. I don't think it ever dawned on him that it was strange that his playmate was a little short and very hairy. They really, really enjoyed each other--as you can see by the photos:
I'm enjoying every minute of life! I spend a lot of time working on sewing crafts and handiwork. Maxey and I are in both the Sanctuary and LiveWire Choirs at our church and enjoy them both very much. We spend a lot of time working in our yard. And now, we spend A LOT OF TIME playing with our puppy, Precious! As often as we can, we go camping and fishing. Life is good!!
