Hi Terri,
What a nice thread!

We're flying out in the morning. We'll fly from California to San Antonio, Texas. We'll be seeing all of our kids, grandsons and grand-dogs.
Heather and Eric are coming from New York City.
Hillary, Steve and David (plus Copper) live near SA, and they are hosting the family for Christmas.
Tom will drive in from Houston, Tx.
Kayla and Kyle already flew in from Denver, Colorado.
Meghan, Tyler and Ryan are driving from Little Rock, Arkansas with Crixus. They are picking up their new puppy, Shelley, on the way.

We'll be attending a party on Dec. 30, which my former students are hosting so that they can visit with me. There will be about 30 of them, and I can't wait to see them.

We'll attend our friends New Year's Eve party. Most of the guests are either military folks or Celtic musicians. The musicians sit around and play music all evening, and a bagpiper pipes in the new year. We eat and drink a lot at that party every year, including real Irish coffee. I can't wait to see my friends again!

Happy Holidays to all!!
Have a happy and pain-free New Year!
Hugs and Love,
Marla
