Christmas Eve, 2016

Well, it's been a busy day. It's now 4 o'clock and I'm just getting a start on my blog. It was a little cool this morning at 61° so, instead of taking the boat to Magnolia's  as Mark planned, we jumped in the car with Wayne and Sue and went for breakfast. The omelettes were great ... Sue had quiche which she said was very good. 

Back at home, Wayne went Christmas shopping while Sue stayed with her dogs; Mark and I began the cooking. 


Robbie and BZ were very interested in Mark carving the turkey! I cooked the potatoes and then made dressing and gravy. It will help a lot tomorrow not to have those three things to do.

Diane and Kris arrived at Southern Palms RV at 1:30ish. The office was closed, so they had to find their own site. By the time we arrived 10 minutes later, they looked a little harried. 😂 
I think in this picture Kris was looking for the "for sale" sign. 😱

Mark helped him get the water and sewer hooked up and gave him what we think are the finer points. There's lots to remember and lots to learn, but I think they are really going to enjoy RVing. Their rig is in lovely condition with plenty of space. 

That's better. The jacks are down, the slides are out and the air conditioning is running! Next, it's TV hookup. 

Wayne and Sue offered to cook Christmas Eve dinner for us. Originally, we were going to eat in their rig but, with Diane and Kris nearby, we have decided to set up a dining table in the Sunroom. (The dining room table is already laid for Christmas dinner tomorrow!)

After a fantastic steak dinner, we all watched "the long long trailer" with Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. It was a 1954 production, and was hilarious. Originally, Paula and Jeremy bought it for us and we have played it several times. At 9:30, everyone headed for home to rest up for tomorrow's Christmas festivities. 

Merry Christmas 🎁!
