A good Christmas day...

This was a very quiet Christmas. The first since all three of our kiddos left the nest!

Josh and Jess had planned to drive up from Texas right after Christmas, but had to change their plans, so we had a good visit over the phone instead.

Jordan spent the night and today with us. If we're really blessed he may spend the night tonight. He's lots of fun to have around!

Micah and Adam drove through the snow storm about 90 miles from Fergus Falls and are staying with Adam's dad a couple of miles down the road. They came over this afternoon and all five of us piled into the pickup, Bob put it in 4WD and we headed for Bemidji, about 60 miles away, to enjoy the Super Buffet (Chinese food) for our Christmas dinner. It was delicious and we had so much fun visiting. Then they were off to go and visit Adam's mom and step-dad. We'll see them again in the morning before they head home.

I did a lot of baking so I could send goodies home with them. I made fudge, kringla and Christmas cookies and also a German chocolate cake for us after I've given away all the goodies. =0) I should have skipped the cake, because WE don't need it. Oh well!

We're also watching a lot of movies-Christmas and otherwise. Hope you all had a blessed Christmas!




  1. Yum! Merry Christmas!
    What movies did you watch?

  2. Sounds like it was a really nice Christmas. When the kids grow up and move away, we take what we can get, right?

    Merry Christmas.


  3. LOL! Thanks ladies! We watched "While You Were Asleep", "Santa Clause 3", "It's a Wonderful Life" and "Elf" over a period of time. Love those movies!

    Yes, we enjoyed every moment with the kids!
