We were happy to have our younger son and his wife home for a few days. They live in Seattle and that’s a long way away! While they were here, we had our family Christmas with them, including a big dinner and opening presents. My Dad and my sister Margaret came down for the afternoon, so Dad could watch the kids open presents. While he was here, we took a few pictures.

And they all went next door to visit Great-Ma (DH’s Mom).
This week, DH’s sister and her husband are coming for a few days to visit DH’s mom. We still have a few events to plan and I have a mountain of gifts to wrap. Also some crafting I want to do…just for fun. And we are planning to host a dinner for a group of eight who bought our “dinner and Christmas house tour” at the library auction last year. Due to my Mom’s passing away last December, they graciously allowed us to put it off until this Christmas. I’ve put the menu down on Wednesday, though our date isn’t tied down for sure. So you may see that menu again in another week or so.
