The day before Christmas (Bob's birthday), we headed over to Costco to shop for each other for Christmas. We chose books by Ken Follett, Tom Clancy, and a book about Texas trivia so we can learn about our new home. We also bought stocking stuffers: Clementine tangerines, apples, and chocolates. At Wild Birds Unlimited Bob bought me a beautiful pair of cardinal earrings. We also bought bird seed for the local doves, cardinals and sparrows. In New Braunfels, we picked up two Party Suns of rolls from Theis Bakery for the RV park luncheon.
On Christmas Day, we slept in, relaxed, then headed over to the RV Park Rec Hall at 12:40 p.m. for Christmas supper. Carefree RV Resorts, our park's parent company, provided turkey, ham, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy for our meal. The rest of us (about 110 people) brought potluck items to round out the meal. With that many people, we were assured many holiday favorites: green bean casserole, steamed squash, deviled eggs, macaroni salad, pistachio pudding, rolls and butter, scalloped potatoes, veggie tray, coleslaw, green salads, pecan pie, pumpkin pie, cream pies, chocolates, fancy cookies, brownies and cake. We had a great meal.
I was on the clean-up crew. Bob, Fran, some other people and I cleared the tables. Then after a problem with a lack of hot water was solved, Helen and I were able to do the dishes.
Upon completion of clean-up chores, Bob and I went to see "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty." Both of us enjoyed the movie. The first part of the movie required keeping alert as to what was real and what was imagined in Walter Mitty's life. The movie picked up when Walter decided to LIVE his life rather than imagining things happening to him. I loved the scenes in Greenland and Iceland.
Bob went to the Med Clinic earlier in the week. They prescribed antibiotics and some other medicine to try to knock out his cough. We'll see if they help.
From reading many friend's blogs, it sounds like your Christmases were filled with friends, fun, faith and food. Merry Christmas to you.
