Oh my, I can't believe I haven't blogged since Christmas. We have been on a whirlwind since Christmas eve, when our daughter and family spent the afternoon and evening with us. After our wonderful steak and shrimp dinner with all the 'fixins', we exchanged our Christmas gifts.
My grandson couldn't wait for me to open the gift he picked out for me!!!
Not the best photo, but I did promise I'd wear my new 'Toy Story' hat wherever I went.
Our granddaughter proudly displayed her gift from us!!
The next morning brought fond farewells to daughter, SIL and grands.
We were off to our son's home near Minneapolis.
We took delight in saying good-by to the snow!!!
The afternoon of Christmas day was spent with our other set of grands and their parents.
This little grand was so proud to give me a gift she made at school. It is a clay jewelry holder. I can't wait until I get home to use it!!!
This little one received the same gift as her cousin. They do share a love of tea parties and dolls. So I thought this gift would be perfect for the both of them.
Experiencing one last Midwest sunrise, we began our travels southwest.
With knee surgery just three months behind me, we had to take many more breaks than we normally do. We stopped every two hours to give me time to take a five minute walk.
Two nights, and three days later we arrived at Lake Havasu, Arizona. After the cold of Wisconsin, the temperatures felt like those balmy first days of spring.
I am getting settled in and getting everything in its place.

And now its off to a friend's condo to cheer for those Green Bay Packers as they play San Francisco in the frozen tundra.
We are blessed to be able to travel to warmer climates in our retirement.
|GO PACK GO!!!!|
And that's the way it is...........................
