It appears that we were good little boys and girls this year since we didn't get a lump of coal and we did get a lot of presents. This is the before picture early in the morning.
Last night after Mass we drove through a couple of neighborhoods to see the Christmas lights and displays. One house in particular had a beautiful display and the owners had a sign up inviting people to share some free hot chocolate and toys with them. We hadn't worn our coats and it was chilly so we just stopped and wished them a Merry Christmas. We both agreed that this was a great idea. Wish we would have thought of it. It is nice to see a display of the Christmas spirit like that.
The park was sponsoring a Christmas dinner today with each couple bringing a dish. Cousin Sharon & Al, along with fellow campers Steve & Judy joined us for the dinner. The park provided ham and potatoes to go with the potluck and the Rec Center was full of happy campers. There was an excess of deserts this year and fewer warm dishes, but there was more than enough food for everyone to fill up and roll out of there.
Sharon & Al went back to their RV site and Steve & Judy stopped by our RV and visited until 10pm. They are an interesting couple and we had a lot to chat about. Since this is their first trip out to the Southwest as snowbirds they intend to bounce around and check out different areas before they decide where to stay next year. Sounds like a great idea to me.
Now to catch up on some rest and relaxation in the next few days.
