Quick Christmas Wrap-up

Click for Rockwall, Texas Forecast

We had a wonderful time in the Dallas area.  Of course we had a couple of chores to tend to.  In Weatherford, we made appointments to see our primary physician and to prevent damage to our furniture, went to our storage place to change out the “Damp-Rid”.  Weatherford is really growing.  No real estate slowdown here.

It was great to spend some time with the family.  Once again, we stayed at Marc’s (our oldest) house.

And, once again, Nola and Barry opened their house for Christmas festivities.  We had been looking forward to this visit for some time.  Some of our favorite treats were present, the fabulous Merkts cheese spreads and the greasy, salty Mrs. Fisher’s potato chips.  The Merkts has been really hard to find in recent years, but thankfully a few flavors are available at some Walmarts.  The Fisher’s Potato Chips (still made with all those transfats) are only available in Rockford, Illinois and online.


All four girls; Ayden, Gracie, Maddi and Katie started out by checking their stocking contents.


Things were just beginning.  It seemed like the stream of loot just kept coming.  Just to give you an idea, here is Maddi STANDING in front of her pile.


It was fun to be around for Katie’s first Christmas.


When you catch up with us on the road, we may greet you with Rick’s new doormat. (Click on photo for close-up, it is a really good likeness.)


It was a wonderful visit.  The weather turned a little cold and nudged us to head back south quickly.
