Happy Holidays!

 Christmas came and went in a flash this year. My Christmas Cactus performed beautifully. 
 I made Jeff a shadow box with his Dad's things for Christmas. 
 We drove to Boise again on Christmas Eve. This year the party was at the Baldwin's. It was so fun to get together with the Boise crowd. All of the kids are growing up. 

 We did a little photo booth fun. 

 We did a lot of picture taking. Selfies, groupies and just plain old pictures. 

 Ella got ahold of my phone. Ava does not have many teeth in her mouth. 

 We got a lot of snow this Christmas. Jeff got a vacuum for Christmas. Lucky man he is. 
 I got all excited about my dead clam. I thought it had a huge pearl in it but it was not. Dang!

 Jeff and I snuck away for a little St George time. It is so peaceful there. We had fun with friends. 
 It was pretty cold in St George but not as cold as it was back in Rexburg. 

 New Years was pretty low key. Good food with good friends is all that we needed. 

 On New Years Day we drove down to St George and visited everyone along the way. Jeff did some health care. 

 Ice on my palm trees. 
 Crazy cloud formations and snow around the pool made it all other worldly. 

 No matter what the weather Jeff gets in the hot tub and swimming pool. It was a good holiday season. Now for 2015.

Happy Birthday Dad!

For Dad's birthday Beth and I flew to California. We had a fun time as always. It is fun to see Dad and Barb waiting for us at the bottom of the escalator. 

We had a delicious dinner cooked by Dad and a yummy chocolate cake. 

The doggy and I slept on our respective sofas. Dad does his crossword puzzles every day without fail. 
Barb took Beth and I to do a little shopping and lunch in Murphys. 
The dog is high energy so we do a lot of walking in California. It was a great visit.

Some little trips south

The neighborhood in St George is changing rapidly. They are building houses in the circle at warp speed. Five houses going in at once. 
 A stormy day ended with a beautiful rainbow. 
 I don't imagine we will see many rainbows to the northwest of our house. It was fun to see. 
 Pat, Jen and Jake came down to visit while Jake played baseball games. It was a tough weekend for Jeff. He fell out of the pick up and broke a couple of ribs. Poor guy. 

 We made a fast one day trip down on Thanksgiving day. It was a much needed rest. We did some mini Christmas decorating with a nativity and a little tree. 
 Jeff heated the pool and spent some quality time in it.
