Monday - Merry Christmas!

Last night I was very tired, but for some reason I just couldn't fall asleep.  I was still awake at 1:00 AM - ridiculous!  

By 8:30 we were on our way to Jamie's, another Christmas tradition, to see what Santa Claus had brought for Bria and Cali.  Dane's parents and his brother were also there.  Bria was very busy assembling one of the 3 very involved Lego kits she had gotten as a gift.  Cali, using the microphone that Lanie and Bob had gotten her for Christmas, acted as a DJ asking questions from a book she had gotten that had multiple choice answers.  It was a lot of fun and her dynamic personality made it a riot!

Bria and Cali's new Christmas outfits!

We left around 10:15 and drove to Lanie's to see what Samantha and Katelyn received from Santa.  We did call before we headed that direction because yesterday Samantha was not feeling very well and felt worse as the day progressed.  Lanie had called this morning and said both she and Samantha were up a lot of the night because Sam had a bad ear ache.  So, after another phone call with Lanie, she said we were welcome to come by and we said we would only stay a short time.  

We enjoyed seeing the girls gifts and then we had a light lunch while there.  Bob and Samantha left at 12:30 to go to Urgent Care to try to get  her an antibiotic so both she and Lanie could have a good night's sleep.  We played one game of UNO with Lanie and Katelyn - it is Katelyn's favorite game!

Ken and I were back home by 1:45 and decided to take naps.  After about 45 minutes we were up and starting doing last minute packing and preparations for tomorrow morning's early departure to Florida.  I cleaned out the refrigerator and scoured the bathroom while Ken loaded things in the car.  It is supposed to be bitter cold tonight, so we are a bit limited in what we can load and have in the car overnight!  

Ken got a call from Ernie and they had a nice chat.  Looking forward to being in the same campground with them for the winter in Florida!

Donna, who lives downstairs, invited us to meet 2 of her friends, one who lives in Venice, FL, and Marie who is moving back to Florida on Thursday.  We had a nice visit.  Back upstairs to do a few more things before sitting down to watch the Steeler's game - go Team!  Donna and her friend brought back the folding chairs they have borrowed from us and then sat and visited for about an hour or so.  We will probably meet up with them when we are in Florida!

I worked on this blog and downloaded photos while watching Jeopardy and then some of the Eagles game.  No food at the Hosler house, so we had cereal for dinner.  That was good, because we have had plenty to eat the last several days!

We plan to be on the road between 2 and 3 AM so we can get around Baltimore and DC before rush hour traffic!  It is supposed to get in the mid teens tonight, so I am ready to return to the warm weather, but we have had the most wonderful time while in PA the last 10 days.  There is nothing like family!!!

PS:  Samantha got medicine for an ear infection and their visit at Urgent Care required a rather short wait time!  Hallelujah!
