Lunch on Saturday

Since we didn't get together with the Skallas on Thanksgiving and since Hil would be going back to school on Sunday, we got together at our house for lunch. Maybe they will learn NOT to make faces at Grandma's camera!

Courtney and Amos hosted dinner for the Sherman family and invited us. Dan was the turkey cook. Nancy and her sister shared carving honors. Everyone contributed things. The dinner and company were great. And I even got a couple chances to hold Mara!

5th/6th Grade Basketball

The next season has officially started. Calvin's team had their first game of the year at Ogden. They had been having only 5 boys at practice. One of those was sick today and they had picked up two more players that were just starting. They did pretty well for having players that didn't know plays. And they improved as the game went along.

A Week without a Blog!

There is no excuse. I have my computer back and as of today have pictures put on from my camera. I don't have any new pictures though. We have had dreary days and the trees are mostly bare. Tuesday I had to take my recovery disks over to Best buy to get my computer going again, after having a virus removed. They got back to work on it and I shopped. Christmas shopping is about 1/2 done! I have been hearing of lots of viruses and have had notices pop up that this or that has been blocked by my new virus scan. I don't have my Family Tree Maker reloaded yet. I put on pictures and card maker today. I don't put on too many things at once, because sometimes they cause something else not to work correctly. I need a computer geek. The card maker showed something didn't download, but it seems to work. If I have to uninstall and reinstall I won't be surprised. Grandma Phoebe is doing well.

Festival of Lights

Christmas is coming! The Auxiliary set up decorated trees and wreaths for the bidding in the Hospital Lobby yesterday. Various hospital departments did the decorating. They held a Pre-Christmas open house today. Bidding has started. The lists by each item are for the bids. I worked in the gift shop yesterday and it must have gotten me in the Christmas spirit. I have officially started Christmas shopping. I now have 2 1/2 presents ready to go. Well, the 1/2 is a pair of sweats for Mom, that she will get early. I need to get them tried on and washed and shortened. They are size medium, have POCKETS, (that is what she prefers and hard to fine, K-Mart had them.) and regular flat bottoms that can be shortened easily.

Grandma Phoebe got the pressure checked in her eyes today. All is well, no change in drops. It was a nice day to get out.

Mara was our first trick or treater. Sadie would make noise at her and she would make noise back. By the time it was Jill's turn to hold her she was starting to get tired of it all. Sadie was a zookeeper and went trick or treating for the first time. (They had always had trunk and treat at the church parking lot in CR. after their evening mass.) We lost count, but probably gave out around 200 treats. I'm sure our next door neighbor has a count though had her light out before we ran out of candy. Teresa had us all over for supper and a good time was had by all. (Mara could be a Ram Fan in this outfit after she had the warm ladybug part off.)
