Merry Christmas!

Hi y'all :) 

We have had much beautiful weather here - some frosty mornings, but ALWAYS into the 60's in the daytime - and more often than not into the 70's...can't beat it!

We had a marvelous Thanksgiving...and yesterday were invited to our friends, Walker & Evelyn Lane for a repeat of Thanksgiving dinner!  Walker got an electric turkey fryer he wanted to try out, so Evelyn pulled out all the stops and made potatoes, yams, ham, cranberry sauce, stuffing, and a wonderful million dollar cake - I took a green bean casserole (told ya it eas a repeat!) and enjoyed their company as well as Ernie & Barb Richardson...we were stuffed to the max!

Thursday evening about 15 of us from the park when caroling through the park - we had a great time and several people came up to me the past couple days saying how much they enjoyed it.  We will be caroling again either on Wed or Thurs night this week.  Fun fun fun!  Nice to go Caroling when you don't have to wear boots and mittens!!!

Friday evening we went to San Antonio - we've been waiting to pay for the boat tour until the Christmas lights were lit...and it was time :)  We went into town, found a great parking place for $4...and walked down to the riverwalk.  We walked through the shops at LaVillita, then on down...had a wonderful dinner at Texas Republic (I had queso and fantastic Chicken Tortilla Soup - David had Enchilada's and shared my queso), and when it was just getting dark (about 5:45) we got on our boat.  40 minutes of fantastic history and gorgeous christmas displays!  Well worth the $14.25 price for the two of us :)

We did manage to take the camera, but I don't have the pics downloaded yet! 

Thanks for the prayers for Dawn's safety in Afghanistan - please continue to remember her in your prayers.

Thanks to all for some great memories - and David, as always thanks for being the love of my life!
