It is Christmas morning here in San Antonio. We went to a lovely Christmas Eve service last night and the two of us are spending a quiet but contented Christmas together. We hope your Christmas Day and New Year are all you hoped for and more.
I am putting our Christmas newsletter here for all our friends who have emails. One reason I'm doing this is that I'm late getting cards/newsletters sent out this year and another reason is that because I'm late color copies of the newsletter would have been $2 each. I've made black and white copies for our snail mail friends but the photos that mostly make up the newsletter are much better in color.

|This is our wonderful grandson, Travis! He was nine the last time we spent any time with him and is now 22. Today is the official day of his sister's death which made our reunion even more special.|
|We only had a few hours but talked and talked and were all so happy to be together again at last! We plan many more meetings in the future.|
|We had seven pies for six people at Thanksgiving dinner. The one with the M on it is mine since no one else likes mince pie. I managed to get it home on the train and still have a few pieces in the freezer.|
|Did I get a photo of my sister or her husband? No. But we get several of their darling little bird, Bandit.|
|EEEEEK! I didn't buy it.|
|The lobby at the Gaylord Hotel.|
|This is made of ice!|
|We had never been to an ice sculpture show before and were surprised at the colored ice.|
|Ice slide. We didn't do this.|
|Karen, Galen, Fred, and Kathy.|
|Everyone gets one of these warm blue coats to wear in the sculpture area.|
|Double-yolked eggs - fresh from the farm.|
|We took this photo of a walking stick on our tire for our grandnephew.|
