Christmas Week Part Two

The second half of the week was a bit slower, just trying to keep busy while pleasing the masses.
Wednesday evening, while Nate was at work, we went to dinner at Apple Bees for dinner. Thursday morning we awoke to cold temps and awaited the snow that was to come. I spent the first part of the day learning to make moms pie crust and apple pie. While Steve was at work, Nathaniel and Grandpa Larry worked on the nova so Nate could have working heat. We continued our yearly tradition of spending Christmas Eve with the Thomas family. Always fun...a good spread of food and a game. We were all glad that Steve was the one driving in the Texas blizzard. Nate awoke us at 8 am for presents (I am sure it has been a long time since Larry had got up this early on Christmas morning). The family came over in the afternoon.

Saturday, we went after Christmas shopping while Nate was at work. Pizza and bowling in the evening. Steve whooped all of us. Sunday was relaxation, Sherlock Holmes and one fantastic steak at Salt Grass. I believe that Larry was probably ready to go home to get some R&R.
