Barb, Mama, and I flew from frigid Indianapolis into the sunshine of Gainesville, Florida last Friday, where we rented a minivan and met Maria and her daughter Seanna (who got out of school mid-day to see us) in Alachua at a charming restaurant called The Conestoga.
Just wanted to let you know, in case you miss me or something, that I'll be gone for a long weekend in Florida's gator country.
While I loved ALL of our Christmas celebrations, my favorite one was our last one...when all four of our children and their families were all able to be here together this past Saturday.
I finished wrapping gifts on Christmas Eve. With 11 grandbabies to buy for (plus a few others as well), it made for quite a big job but I got 'er dun just in time!
A wonderful Thanksgiving Day...28 of us gathered at my sister Barb and brother-in-law John's house for a day of family and feasting.
