2011 - Goodbye

The last few weeks have been full of holiday activities.   Christmas concerts, baking dozens and dozens of delicious holiday cookies, purchasing gifts, sending gifts, watching Christmas specials on tv, setting up all the Christmas decorations and more.
The day before Christmas we went to the beach with our friends from down the street and took 275 pictures of each of our families.   It was a day in the low 70's and perfectly blue skies and the most beautiful colors of blues in the gulf.  We had so much fun together.
Most of the pictures were taken by me and Lamont.  Doesn't Mom look great after her eye surgery?
So we brought kites and flew them.....went for walks on the beach.   So fun!
Christmas Eve brought dinner at Flounders, church, and then home to the reading of the Night Before Christmas by Dad.    Christmas day was wonderful with a big, 20 pound turkey to gooble up.  Ron left Monday morning - he had to work on Tuesday.  Well, somebody has to make money!
Tuesday night we went to the Ice Flyers hockey game in Pensacola.   We lost.   But it was teacher's night and teachers got in for a discounted fee and a free cap. 

In a week, my friend Kathy Cox is coming to visit!  Yea!!!!  Then Sandy and I are going to Disney World in February.  Time to start taking down the Christmas decorations.  Matter of fact, Dad did the outside today.  This warm weather is going to drop 10 degrees in a couple of days but you can't compare that to January in Northwest Indiana.  January and February can be a snowy time off of Lake Michigan.  I just got a text from Dave that he has just arrived home from his flight.
Hope everyone has a fun and safe New Years Eve tomorrow night.
