We had a nice, but short, trip home for Christmas.
The weather was nasty, so we were not able to fly. We were hampered a bit by Robert's work schedule, so we drove to Mom's house Saturday night late.
Our get together was at Trudi and Eddie's house for a Christmas Breakfast and then the "Chinese Christmas" present exchange. We had a good time - just a few people "stole" gifts from each other. After some after-game bargaining, I think everyone left with the right gift.
Here are some photos that highlight the event:
Me and Denise -
Duane and I - something was funny - not sure what!
There was a pile-on for Keith and his family...
Then we asked the kids to sit for a photo-op, but Robert decided he needed to squash me!
All the Grandkids (except the man-cub, of course...boo-hooo)
Eddie, Trudi and Eddie II
And the heads of the family - Mom and Frank!
After we left Eddie and Trudi's house, we went to visit Granny and Cordy for a short while. They're doing fine - went out for a nice meal. Good to see them, but we had to head back to Pittsboro to have Robert back for work!!
