Merry Christmas Eve

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!


  1. I'm glad you think he's only three hours money's on 6:00 am. They'll have to sleep at some point.

  2. Deejo and crew pulled in at 11:38- still Christmas Eve!

  3. Damn. I really wanted to cool Pez prize, too. Why did he have to drive straight through the year I was betting on him needing a nap?


I had to turn verification back on. Ten "spams" an hour is making me crazy...
