A week ago, I was giddy with the anticipation of the arrival of family. One week later, I only have my memories of our time together.
Christmas Day brought gifts, food, and more family together. The house hummed with the chatter from the family members who live far and near.
We awoke to frozen fog the next morning. It was the closest thing to snow for our California girls. Then we were off to visit Silver Dollar City, an amusement park with five million lights. Temperatures were just right for roller coasters. Yes, even I went on several of them. I don’t enjoy being terrified as much as others in our party.
The rest of the days were filled with horseback riding, hanging out with cousins, playing cards, and football.
Our time was short, but we made the most of it. These memories are now preserved forever.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. Happy New Year!
