A small, family farm in Wisconsin

The Day After Christmas

I hope everyone had a nice day with family and friends. As usual we ate too much, Connor got a belly ache (food plus excitement), and we had a good time visiting and laughing at things only our family finds funny. There were new phones aplenty and we had dueling beeps going on for a while. The girls called their boyfriends, because they missed them. We watched A Christmas Story for the gazillionth time and we all knew every word of dialogue.

Most of my grands have grown up enough that they want to give us a little gift, and the things they chose were so thoughtful and special. Nikki and Ken gave me a new bread machine because my old one recently bit the dust. Sorry about that whole lack of fresh bread thing Santa. I hope you enjoyed the roasted garlic dip and chips instead ūüôā

Lee gave me a digital photo frame and I’m excited to begin using it. I have to figure it out first of course. More techno challenges for me, but I’ll get it. I always do.

One of the best gifts I got was from my brother and sister-in-law, who sent me several of my favorite things.  Could they be any more thoughtful?

Meredith couldn’t find her photo ornament on the tree and neither could I, even though I knew it was there somewhere. This morning I did find it. If it was a snake….., so I took a picture of it and phoned it to her. She’s happy to know that she really is loved.

Aubrey, Josh and Carys¬†weren’t able to make it.¬† They spent the day with Josh’s family.¬† Aubrey sent this picture of Carys.¬† Have you ever seen a more beautiful smile?

The weather wasn’t the best, but all made it safely here and home again.

Charlie’s present was a big hit.¬† It’s a roundish green rubber thing with an opening.¬† It’s called Monster Mouth I think.¬† Stuff it with biscuits and let him at it.¬† It takes him quite¬†a while to get all of the biscuit bits out of there so I highly recommend it for a doggy diversion.
