Just a quick note. Blair is shopping the sales on-line, while Ted and Jason are watching a movie. I’m getting my packing done for Arkansas, but I thought I would stop long enough to post a few pics from the weekend.
Jason and Blair got here around 6:30 Christmas afternoon. We ate a big dinner, then opened gifts. Santa was very good to everyone, but the best part was just being with family. We chatted with Blake online on a video Skype call Christmas morning, then called him again when Jason and Blair arrived. So great that technology allows us to see him through 7300 miles of cyperspace!
Saturday has been a very relaxed day. Blair and I have read and napped and shopped online – all out on the sun porch. It has been cold enough that we have had the fire going all day. So nice! Ted and Jason have watched football, grilled, and just done some male bonding. Jason and Blair brought their two dogs AND Blair’s mom and dad’s dog (they were going out of town for two weeks and needed dogsitters). So we’ve had FIVE dogs – more dogs than people! Bear and Bayla (their Bernese Mountain Dog) have had a wonderful time playing – they are both big and play rough. Right now they are both dog-tired (pardon the pun) and sound asleep.
We will leave for Arkansas Sunday, sometime after Jason and Blair leave to return to Atlanta. We’ll drive until we’re tired, then try and find a pet-friendly hotel. If we can’t find one, I guess we will continue to drive until we get there! It’s a 13-hour trip!
I hope all of you had a wonderful, safe Christmas. Will post something during the week we are in Arkansas – just don’t exactly know when. God bless.
P.S. It’s amazing how much I have missed sitting down everyday to blog. I keep thinking, “What am I forgetting to do!” Weird!
