December 2009

We had a lot of things going for us in December. There were several birthdays and of course Christmas. Dick and I decided to spend a week at our Lake Home for the Christmas holiday.

My sister-in-law, Bev Wolfe, had her birthday on December 18. Dick and I went to Minneapolis to celebrate her birthday with her. Here is Bev with her birthday cake.

A couple of days before Christmas, we began to get snow, a lot of snow. By Sunday after Christmas, we had received about 16 inches of wet heavy snow. The picture shows the snow after the first day.

On Christmas Day, our eldest son, Rick, and his family drove from Wisconsin to our Lake Home to spend the day with us. Here is Raisa and Brenden, two of our Wisconsin grandchildren in front of the Christmas tree.

On the evening of Christmas Day, Kathy, Mary Lease, and Raisa helped me put a puzzle together. They worked on it until about 2:00 a.m.
