Christmas Eve 2018

My grandson came for a sleepover on Sunday morning.  We had a great time, stopped at Barr Lake, cleaned the house, watched “The Grinch” about a thousand times.  On Monday (Christmas Eve), my son and daughter-in-law came early in the afternoon and we went to Barr Lake (their first time there).  Michelle, the park administrator, made arrangements for us to use the Eagle Express golf cart so we could get to the Eagles more easily in the cold.  That was a huge blessing!  It wasn’t so bad for the first hour or so, but when the wind started whipping around it got really cold really fast.  We went out to the Gazebo and saw some Eagle Feeding Frenzy before it got too bitter cold.

We came home, ate dinner (sans the tomato soup that Keaton and I made that morning because it was not so good…).  We had filets, scallops, green beans and parmesan orzo.  After dinner, we opened presents.  Then the kids had to leave because Keaton needed to get to bed and get a good sleep before Santa came!

Keaton always asks me if my days with him are good from 1 to 10.  This was definitely a “10” day.
