It's getting late on Christmas eve. We've just come home from a neighborhood potluck and program at the Fawn Brook Inn. It was a refreshing way to spend an evening of waiting: our Phoenix son and family are headed our way and still have about three hours drive time before they get here. It's a 15 hour drive and they got kind of a late start, so we all have bets on when they will arrive. It's going to be a real weather-shock for them because right now it's 9 degrees outside and windy blasts are blowing our foot of snow all over. I would bet our horses are standing in the trees on the mountain, shielded from the wind and watching over their landscape in the bright moonlight - maybe checking Santa's progress.
Our other son is on his way home from a party at his grandma's house and both girls and their families will be here tomorrow. It's truly a Hallmark Christmas. We are so fortunate to be able to have all the kids and grandkids at the Lodge for Christmas this year.
Merry Christmas and blessings to all!
