A wonderful Christmas is nearly over!

Things are nearly back to normal.

Jill and Eric are home safe, after a snowstorm slowed down their flight and threatened to keep them in the cities overnight.

We are home – the snowstorm stopped soon enough so that we didn’t have to worry about roads for US going home.

Joy and family went to Ken’s family’s Christmas today and had a great time there.

Niece Cookie and daughter Binni are home after a hectic day of snow and ice across the state – she was in the western part of the state for Christmas with some of her family. They took almost 11 hours for a trip that is normally only about 7 hours.

Candy and Wayne took care of our chickens, so they hadn’t traveled any farther than the 9 miles between houses and back.

We had Christmas dinner here today for C&W and us. Norm and Wayne played their usual game of cribbage, which Norm won, for once.

We also received 2 or 3 or 4 inches of snow with very little wind!

So, now that things ARE nearly back to normal, here are some pictures for you to enjoy.

It's the best Christmas, ever!

Glad you had such a wonderful time and made it home in one piece! We didn't get the snow that you did- just an inch or so, but now we are engolfed in fog. Talk soon.
