Well, it's back to school and back to reality. The break flew by.

We had a great Christmas. It all started with the annual Santa shopping trip. We took it the Monday before Christmas. We did let the boys talk us into going to Bass Pro. Tuesday was a day of drs. appointments. I got a check up on my MRSA. Everything looked great. We also got the lovely bactroban to put in our noses twice daily. Doesn't that sound like fun? The entire family has to do this. It is supposed to make us not pass the infection around. It had better!!!! Christmas Eve was spent with my family. Mom cooked a big ham and all of the fixings. Christmas morning was spent with wrapping paper everywhere and presents galore. The next day, my step daughter Morgan flew in from South Carolina. It was a pleasent surprise that we were to work everything out for her to come in such a short time. We went to Darin's sisters home and had Christmas with that side. We then went and met with my dad's brothers on Saturday. Whew!!! No wonder we are tired.

Morgan was here until New Year's Eve. We tried to treasure every precious minute. She has grown into such a wonderful young lady. She has a good head on her shoulders and is as beautiful on the inside as out.

New Year's Day is my dad's birthday, so we went back down there for a birthday party. The kids enjoyed playing with their cousins and I think no blood was shed from the two oldest boys!!! We spent a few more days at Mom's with the guys hunting and fishing and Mom and I enjoying the time together.

Now it's back to reality. Mom had to only say a few times that she enjoys retirement, especially after Christmas break!!!!
