It is New Year's Eve and we are in Kansas with snow all around. Dean and I are spending the holidays with his family.
For Christmas, we spend 5 days with his daughter, Stephanie, and her family in LaClede, Missouri. We were snowed in for 3 days. Our grandsons had a great time with all their new toys and we had fun watching them.
This is a picture of Stephanie, husband Lorin, and two sons Landon and Lane.

We are spending this week with Dean's brother, Tom, his wife Barbara, and Dean's mother on the pig farm outside of Emporia, KS. It is so cold that Chica and I have only walked about 15 minutes outside a couple of times. We have the big family gathering with other relatives on Saturday and then we head to Oklahoma for a short visit to see my step-mother, Doloris, and my brother Stan. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate and we will have clear highways. We should be back in Prescott a week from today.

This is Tom's farmhouse with snow all around.

Since my last blog we have bought a motorhome - 1999 Blounder - previously owned by our friends, Greg and Sally. We have taken one short trip to Yuma to get solar installed and see our friends, Chuck and Jan. We are looking forward to our first major trip in January to the "Q" and other happenings in SW Arizona.

Happy New Year to everyone and here's hoping that 2010 will be the best year ever.
