We had a wonderful time and once again Christmas was shared by all of us being together.
We were met with a roaring fire in the fireplace. Just perfect to take the chill off. Kurt was kind enough to light the fire every night we were there.
He even went out and bought a tree and decorations which he had set up in the corner of the man cave.
For someone who did not enjoy reading when he was younger (not like his mom in that respect), he sure changed as he got older. Now I can honestly say he is more like me than he would like to be. Just look at all these books.
Floor to ceiling bookcases surround much of the room. The shelves also contain little trinkets he has picked up on his travels. The bookcases were one of the first things he did in his basement.
Here is a picture of the proud house owner.
Like me he Kurt does not enjoy having his picture taken.
Harvey relaxing after the long 9 hour drive to get to our destination.
This is our youngest son Kris. He always enjoys getting his picture taken and was very happy to be somewhere different.
Notice the phone in his hand. He just needed to check an email he got from work.
The last visitor to Kurt's place was Kris' cat, Ray. After the long trip and hiding behind the tree for a few hours........
he just had to go exploring.
The one thing you might not know about Raymond is that he is an extremely large cat. He weighs in at 26 lbs. None of us can understand this as he really does not eat a great amount. In fact Kurt watched and said he only eats about as much as my cat Shania does. Hmmm, wonder if he is sneaking food at home.
We are home now, things are put away and I have caught up on laundry. I have started a new knitting project (after finishing a couple of projects I had set aside). All is right with the world.
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
