Way cool! We go to Nuevo Progreso every year, usually in January or February. Didn't know there was a party for the kids on Christmas. We have watched the kids play at the school there, no doubt they appreciate your party.

We live 40 miles through the worst traffic Seattle has to offer. A round trip might take three hours per day. We have a dog, a very needy dog. Normally we head south for the winter.

Of course we said yes. Then off the phone began to ponder exactly what we could do. It hit me. "We will take the motor home over and hook it up to their house and stay there as long as this takes. That way we have our home but are only steps from theirs, on call. So here we are shuffling kids to day school, cooking, cleaning, shopping, cooking, and attending soccer matches and gymnastic classes and chemotherapy sessions what ever it takes.

Our daughters tree stands beside the China Cabinet in Ohio.

Although this is a challenge we have not laughed this often or as hard for a long time. Mostly at ourselves. This may be the best Christmas ever.
Blessings to you and your family. Wishing you the best outcome!

We will be having Christmas at home with the kids. My dad past away this last November so this one will be a little less cheerful than others but I'm still grateful to have our family with us.

njs42: Our prayers are with you.

As I read your post I was overwhelmed with the thought: Now there are two people that know how to handle adversity. Bless you.

I'll be working the ER both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
Just another day saving lives . . .

With the family out-of-state, I usually volunteer to work the holidays so some one with family can actually get to spend a holiday with them.

Beginning to seem a lot like Christmas

Staying home. Here in the Houston TX area, our typical Christmas weather arrived today, rain and 75 degrees. But tomorrow it is supposed to cool down and be clear, high 69 degrees and low of 39 degrees. Warming back up on Christmas day. Looks like a good day to play golf. Merry Christmas and may all of your Christmas's be dry.

Home with the family cooking up a "World famous "Jack Bells" Griller..........The first time I went in to buy one....asking questions.... he asked, "have you ever ate one"? I said ...no, his reply was "Son, this is going to be some of the finest eating you ever will have" He was RIGHT! I cook a couple a year, all his meats are just out of this world! They ship...... Bell's Meat & Poultry

The griller sounds delicious. The bacon bomb also sounds good.

As we are full timers we will find a nice snowy spot to stop at and have some Hot dogs and baked beans with some yams (we like the hot dogs and beans) But then I have to run out on the 28th to preform my first wedding.
