Happy New Year !!
We had a GREAT Christmas. All the girls and their husbands/significant others were here; and the two GRANDDAUGHTERS too! Alana and Tracey are still here (return to Hawaii on the 8th) and Jessie and Alana have been having a ball playing with each other. Nice.
Susan and Tracey are enjoying a mini-vacation at the condo in Bradenton, Florida right now. Apparently the cold wave that hit us a few days ago is also being felt in Bradenton, although it did get up to 70 degrees today. They tell us that they've been having a good time, and they love the place, so hopefully they can get a chance to visit in the summer sometime.
It is snowing (yippee!) and Alana just ran out to the deck to make a snow angel, snowball and just have fun. For a kid from Hawaii it's a real treat !
Dale takes off for Bradenton on the 16th and I go down on the 20th. I really SHOULD stay home and try to catch up on "stuff" but I'm going to lie on the beach instead ;-)
