The Big Loser

No - I am not the big loser in any weight loss contest. I am the big loser when it comes to family games. I have been beat big time at Scrabble by Chad. I had no idea he was the KING of Scrabble. Then last night I was beat like a drum by Diana and Greg at Canasta. I did not know that my sister was the QUEEN of Canasta. I had a hard time facing the fact that I was a big-time loser at some games. I know that I should have just been thrilled with all the great family time that we have been having with family games. I guess one of my New Year's Goal can be to learn to lose gracefully. I wish this losing would transfer to weight loss. There is where I would like to be the BIG LOSER.

Christmas 2009

The Christmas season is behind us. Almost all signs of the Christmas season are tucked away in the attic and closet, but the memories linger on. Without being too. lengthy, I will list some of the highlights of the season.
  • The anticipation of Chad making it home for Christmas in the snowstorm that hit Oklahoma is near the top. A three-hour trip became a 8 1/2 hour trip.
  • Diana and Keelie both in the hospital emergency room on Christmas Day.
  • Twelve hours of Christmas games with the Rick, Greg, Chad, and Jenna. I bet we were one of the few families that NEVER turned a TV on - on Christmas Day. We listened to the Range Christmas music on the radio.
  • An "unlikely" angel.
  • My families "presence."
  • Good food.
  • Christmas outtings and events.
  • Greg killing a wild hog.

Signs of a Holly Jolly Christmas!

I finally finished my six weeks of Technology with Marilyn trainings. I can now do other things with my nights other than reading computer manuals and studying. So the first thing I thought I would do is catch up on some of my blogging. I have not added pictures in a while so I will share a few of my favorites.

The ice sculptures at the Gaylord with the grandchildren.

The ice sculpture nativity scenes.
