christmas with the cousins (holiday party #14)

Christmas was really different this year. We didn't spend Christmas with the Herr's this year - more on that tragic story later.

I puttered around home during the day, eating Grandma's cranberry salad and popcorn and basically being a lazy ass.

I left home around 4:00 to meet Dad at the farm. We drove to Logansport to hang out with cousin Chuck and his family. It was great fun (and lots of food - ham, yum). There was some Euchre playing, looking at old photographs and story-telling. I got to see the Little Mommy Gotta Go in action - ick!

We spent the night - I slept like a rock star in the spare bedroom. I slept very well, I didn't realize how on edge I was.

The next morning we went to Bullshippers Cafe, connected to the stockyard. It the kind of place that I can imagine meeting a nice farmer and watiressing for the rest of my working years. It was a lovely morning.

Sleepin good and having a place where you can imagine good things is a blessing.
Sorry about the accident and the sorrow it brings to all - Jerry let me know.
Also read about you incident being robbed. You should be pissed off. Really pissed off. And you know what - it is okay.

I'll bet that as skinny as you must be your 'edge' must pretty hard to stay on.

Well I just read your robbery blog. Now I'm mad and want to do something for you. I'm so fleet of foot (wink) I wish I'd been there to chase them down.
I am so thankful that you are unhurt. Be careful. We mustn't be missing you... because we would.
