... we arrived at the Rodney's parents' house Monday before supper. The weather was cold, 17 degrees, but not yet wet or icy - something that would change in less than 12 hours. We met the new addition to the family, Jenny, a chocolate lab puppy who needed a little TLC from the Guthries who newly arrived. Will trussed her up in a basket. Fortunately, she is very easy going, loves attention and had no problems with being treated like a rag doll.
Tuesday the weather turned into icy rain. My car was a bit confused with the severe change in weather from the balmy 75-degree weather we had left in Pensacola two days earlier - it now had icicles dripping from it.
Cousin Katie and her son Drew, were already in town from Arizona. We had a great time getting to know Drew, who is a real cutie. We think he looks like Uncle Jim. Speaking of Uncle Jim, he was attacked by an unruly group of boys yesterday. I think he has fully recovered by now.
Tuesday evening Grandpa Paul arrive home with a surprise: He had won a Wii game console at work! What a great Christmas gift for everyone!
I quickly installed it and in the past two days the entire family has bowled, played tennis, played baseball, boxed and more. Will was especially thrilled and quickly beat everyone at bowling with his strikes. Here's the proof that EVERYONE (even the tough-nut-to-crack Aunt Brenda!) was having fun...
Even Drew started getting in on the action...
Merry Christmas, everyone!
