The stockings are hung by the chimney with care:

Well, not by the chimney because we don't have one but they are hung. Nobody fills them but they are hung anyway.

Our grandson, his wife and one of our great grandchildren are coming out from Spokane to spend the night. They hope to get out on a plane in the AM at 6. Bob will take them to the airport at 4:30. They have been trying since Wednesday. If you are reading my daughter Nikki's blog - Life With Boys - He is Thing 2. Actually Joel. they should be here soon or we will be in bed. At least I will.

It has snowed most all day. Sometimes hard, sometimes not. We must go to the store in the morning to get a few things. We were given a gift card to Yokes and I think this is a good time to use it. One thing I want is paper plates. I don't want to be doing dishes off and on all day.

Bob started shoveling roofs today. The horse shelter shed and part of our garage. Its tough for even a guy in good shape at 70. I worry about him although he seems to be doing it OK. He does come in and sit once in a while. He will need to do the barn soon. Sure don't want anything to fall like it did last winter. We use the neighbors place because he is in Wyoming and last winter the loafing shed fell the night they were going to shovel in the next day. It was frustrating. It slides off our metal house roof and off the main part of the barn but the sides need shoveling at the barn.

Am already to celebrate tomorrow. I thought Coreen, our 17 year old granddaughter was coming out today but she called me and her mother had things for her to do. I have enough fudge for us all to gain 10 pounds. But we will have fun. I do have veggies to cut up yet. I probably need to go do that so I don't get rushed in the morning.

Merry Christmas to alllllllllllllllllllllllllllll. For my new friends I have met thru blogging and those I have known before and kids who read this - to all of you have a wonderful holiday. I may not get here to write tomorrow. Or maybe I will.
