Saturday Mumblings, On Christmas Morning.


My bride and I were up early and had a nice cup of coffee, it was like an old fashioned Christmas Morning like when the kid's were young and just about every year you had snow on the ground, from the kitchen table you could look out back with the yard lights on and see everything covered in a clean white snow cover.

My son Andy and his girlfriend Samantha got up and we enjoyed the morning and about 09:30AM Adam arrived and since he was the star of the show he started to open present's, his big gift was an xbox360, we have one here that he plays with his Dad, but he asked Santa to bring another so he could play at his house too. He was thrilled that his request was honored.



The Xbox, a Call to Duty, Black Ops game, and an external hard drive for the Xbox, what a haul.

When the presents were opened he wanted Grandpa to show him the pictures I took in PA of the Santa Parade and the CP  Rail Holiday Train.


Adam & Grandpa, some serious computer stuff here.

Then it was Rigg's and Sadie's turn for some fun, they put their Christmas outfit's on, and Mom had them do there tricks for us.


Two butts on the floor you must sit and wait for the treat.


Then Sadie first they get the UP command, Look at the impatient look on Rigg's face.


                       Now it's Rigg's turn.


C'mon Adam how about some tug, I was good doing my tricks.

After lunch I took Adam home and Donna was already starting to cook up the sauce and meat for the Lasagna for tonight's dinner, I will wait to post this until it comes out of the oven later this afternoon so I can post a picture.

My son Andy & his girlfriend Samantha left right after I did to go to Clearwater OK to visit with some of Samantha's relatives, They also took her two kid's Chris & Nicole and also Sadie, so it will just be Mom & I and Rigg's tonight, sounds cozy doesn't it. I house to ourselves for a few nights.

  8. Can you mail some of that Lasagna out here to Arizona? I promise to mail back some of this warmer air that we have here! Glad you had such a Merry Christmas.

  9. The doggies were so cute in their Christmas outfits - so well-behaved too.

    My (Italian) girlfriend called and said they also had Lasagna. Darn, I should have been born Italian - I love Italian food.

  10. Doesn't it feel good to be back "home" especially during this time of the year.

  11. Those dogs are so cute. I don't know if we will ever get that far with Rusty. He seems to be 100% emergy. Adam looks very happy with his gift. Stay safe.

  12. Those outfits are just toooo much! Riggs looks very soldierly and serious in his. What a great holiday for Adam, and to be rewarded with a great toy for being such a good boy all year.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
