It is amazing how many people took family photo's this year and gave them out as Christmas presents. My fridge is covered with photos, which I love. I hate getting a store-bought Christmas card from someone with no note or picture or something that makes it special. It seems a waist of stamps. Even a generic news letter is better than just a signature. Just sayin.
Jesse, Toby, and I put up the entire north wall on the barn yesterday. We are talking sixty feet of metal sheeting. It was a bit chilly outside too. Jesse and I were worn out. Toby was too, but he was not admitting it. He was hoping to work some more today after church, but Jesse and I had to bake pies and such. It was even colder today, and we really did not want to be barn building. Baking pies was warm and wonderful. We will take the pies to Toby's sisters tomorrow over in Electra, TX. They make a wonderful dinner - beef tenderloin. Jesse and I like to bring some finger food and pies. We will play a dirty santa game and there will be an ongoing game of poker. It is usually a good time.
Mom is in Red River with my older brother and his family. She will have Christmas dinner with old friends, the Tweeds and the Woerndles. I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and your travel time is safe.
