Christmas Day

Where Are We Today

 (click on pic to enlarge)

Pilot Knob RV Resort at Felicity California is where you find us today, Christmas Day. We were up early, 6:30 a.m. MST, so we could call all our family back home before they out and about. Two families out of six were up, the rest were in bed yet.

Sun Rise

We wait and watched the sun come up on this beautiful morning, clear blue skies with a little chill in the air at 49* F. Within two hours we had managed to reach everyone back home and wish them all a Merry Christmas.
Making sure that we had an early breakfast, because of the early afternoon Christmas dinner, finished the dishes and then outside to enjoy the day. As our neighbors came out we would wish each other a Merry Christmas and chat about our connections back home and our enjoyment of the grand weather we were experiencing today.

As time approached for dinner, it was time to get spiffed up for our Christmas gathering at the club house. There would be 10 of us including Pat's sister Gayle and her husband John.
The park put on the dinner of turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, dressing, green bean salad, roll, sweet potatoes,  cranberry sauce, and apple or pumpkin pie for dessert, all for $10.00 per plate. It was delicious!

Dinner over and it was time for Happy Hour, so back to our place where there ended up with 14 of us, all from Ontario and B.C. As 5:00 p.m. approached it was time for us break up this party and everyone headed home.
We had one more connection to make back home. That was to my sister Liz's place, where she and B.I.L. Bruce , hold Christmas dinner for my parents and my other sister Carol and B.I.L. Brian. If we were at home, we would have been there also.
We were trying to do a "Hangouts" video call, but had some technical difficulties, so between using the computer and the phone, we did manage to wish each other a Merry Christmas.

 The rest of the evening was casually watching TV and of course, writing this post and no more eating today, were stuffed.
Hope you had as great a day as we did, spending time with family and friends. Thanks for following along, until the next time, take care and be safe.
