A Good Visit

We have been having a great visit in Minnesota. The weather has been challenging, snow or cold or wind or all three! We've been keeping warm. After a great graduation for my sister, who now has her Bachelor's Degree, we have had a little more down time. We took Cassie shopping on Wednesday and had fun. I went shopping with Elise and Owen on Thursday and had a great time finishing up my shopping. We watched Mike bowl on Thursday night and all headed out for pizza. Friday morning, Roger and I wrapped all the presents and got everything ready to go. I helped Elise and Cassie decorate the tree. It is fun and cute. We had dinner with Paul. Saturday, Roger and I did nothing. We watched TV and hung out with Gwen, Jerry and Patsy. We had dinner with Roger's oldest friend, Jim (he's not the oldest, but they have been friends since third grade). This morning I am doing laundry and getting ready to head to Minot tomorrow for Christmas. I'm cooking dinner for Trish, Gwen and Jerry, Roger 1 and anyone else who stops by. I love to cook for a large group...ham and scalloped potatoes...yum.

Tomorrow morning we'll head to Minot. We've had below zero temperatures and probably will continue to be cold, but we adjust and have a good time. Hopefully, I'll find time to update again sometime soon. I keep forgetting to take pictures. I have so much fun I hate to stop everything for a picture. I have the great memories which are plenty for me.

Please get here. Your mother is working me to the bone! We actually bought a tree Saturday. I am shopping Monday because it's as close as I can get to last minute.
Have a safe trip and see your Monday night.

Sounds like you are having a good visit!
We are off to visit Grandma tomorrow and take her some home-baked cookies.
Seems like the only thing she really enjoys these days is eating...........
We'll talk to you Christmas Day.

I'm so happy that you are having a great time! Relax some for me - the store is working me overtime!

Enjoy the cold weather too..... just a toe out the door for me and a jump in the snowbank for Jarrod!
