ornament on the tree. After opening gifts, we all came home to Dan and Karen's house. Later
we walked around viewing the Christmas displays.
After a good night's sleep, we had a nice breakfast and opened some more presents. After lunch, we played with some of the gifts. We will later go back to my house, where Dan will do some
household chores for me.
This week, I will be busy with gatherings of friends in the park where I live. It is good to be
kept busy. Next month I look forward to visiting with my sisters in Florida.
Love to all. Grandma Gronseth

We are headed to Mom's for Christmas Eve dinner - those in the know don't need to guess - pork roll. We are planning on the Alvin & the Chipminks movie for the early afternoon. After dinner we will open a few presents and drive around and look at lights then take Mom back to our place overnight. Then Christmas morning we'll be opening the rest of the presents at our house. Hopefully there will be time in there to post something. Maybe I'll get a guest blogger behind the keyboard and have Mom post a few words.
If this works I may think I'm a genius. Well, I'm no genius, but you may go ahead and think so, just to humor me. The boys just love the snow and we do too. Especially when we can walk a few feet stand in the sun and just observe. Our church puts on the ritz at Christmas time. They truck in snow and fill up a small retention basin with snow for sledding, snowball fights, a fort and just to stand in for a moment until you remember why it is you left the cold country in the first place. There were hay rides and bouncy things too. The boys probably would have stayed all day if we had let them.

We got ahead of ourselves and did some of the red before the silver. If we do it again, we'll do the whole stalk in silver then the branches with red and run the red onto the stalk.
The main thing is having fun and that we did!

Had I thought of it earlier I could have a good shot of him consentrating on the task.

After eating and playing some games, we went to the pool only to find it was closed for repairs - it was supposed to be closed starting Monday. We ended up playing pool instead. A first for the boys! Going to need some practise I can tell you that! But they weren't the only ones in need of practise!!

This is another time consumer - or hobby. Finished this drawing in pen & ink and once I make a few copies I hope to hand color them with color pencil and see how that looks. The bell has that light green-blue patina that I think would give me headaches trying to get right.

Erik petted the stingrays and wasn't afraid to pick up an urchin (we learned that they aren't supposed to taken out of the pool like the starfish)
Jakob made a new friend in line for Shipwreck Rapids. she and her mom walked with us over to the sky ride and Jakob went with them in one gondola while we went in the next one.

We won a large prize on the ring toss atop a two liter bottle, so I guess what we'll HAVE to try again...(It's a giant stingray, btw)
So, the kids are off for fall break. They'll both have friends overnight on Thursday. That aught to be interesting! I'll post back up when we get back.
