|Spent the week of Christmas at Lake Pleasant about 60 miles from Buckeye. Really had fun Christmas eve going to Mass and then to dinner with Michaela, Melissa, Nik, Dallas & Savannah. Reminded us of the days when Mike, Melissa and Michaela were the children at the dinner table having either a Roy Rogers or a Shirley Temple. After dinner, Michaela snapped a picture of Santa and his reindeer flying by, so we all hurried home so Santa could make his stops in Buckeye. Had Christmas dinner at Melissa's. She's a great cook and belongs on Chopped. She likes to try new things and think outside the box when it comes to cooking. Melissa, Nik and the kids came up to see us on the 26th. We had a great time hiking, grilling hot dogs and making smores. It was a lot of fun! Jack, Theresa, Mike, Trey and Xander arrived on the 27th, so we had a second Christmas on the 28th at Melissa's. It was a busy and fun-packed week!
