They took the motor home up and stayed until Sunday morning. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, I was getting packages ready by gently placing the few gifts we were giving this year in those wonderful, colorful gift bags! I'm not a wrapper....I don't like wrapping, so the gift bags are the greatest thing for me.
I also cleaned house and made twice baked potatoes for Sunday lunch. Our nephew, Patrick and his wife Kristen are in town, so they came along with Russell's mama and Uncle Hugh. It is always an honor when Uncle Hugh comes because he doesn't eat just anybody's food! He's just a little eccentric but we love him!
Here are Patrick, Matt and Tommy waiting for lunch to be served. Those are some hungry boys!
Since Jack was getting all the attention, Mikey, the hyper dog, decided he would get a lot more attention if he tried being a lap dog, so he jumped up in Kristen's lap and went right to sleep. Well he went to sleep right after this picture was taken, but for him to be that still in someone's lap is not like him at all!
He may have had the mistaken idea that he was going to get a plate!
Jack sitting in Tommy's lap watching expectantly for someone to come to the door. Any excuse to bark.
Matt reluctantly letting me take his picture by the Christmas tree. I guess when you get to be 22, you aren't so eager to be under the tree.
Tommy and Matt. It is really hard to get a picture of the two of them with both sets of eyes open!
We sent Tommy and Claudia's presents home with Tommy and Matt will open his tonight or tomorrow before he drives down to Orlando where the 3 of them will fly to Minnesota to see their mother and their Minnesota family. They are going to freeze!!!
It was a good weekend and oh, yes, it's cold here! Well, I mean cold for us southerners!
