A look back at the past few days which had us and Lizzie/Darren and boys in St. Louis and Katie/Charlie and boys in New York.
I'm doing this ever since I realized how important it is to keep a record of things we want to remember and a blog helps with this. Some photos I have had over the years are gone as computers crashed and were replaced. I now use various means of saving picures beyond the hard drive, but still, you never know.
Christmas sort of began on December 16 with a visit from my sister who came over from Kansas. She brought the boys their gift..."A Rum Pum Pum Pum"..a drum set. A beautiful drum set, yet loud. Actually she knew we'd be ok with it because our grandfather was a professional drummer back in the 20's and 30's, playing in a band which headlined at various legal and illegal places during prohibition. He was a contemporary and acquaintance of Gene Krupa, probably one of the more famous drummers of that era. So we have some family sentimentality about drumming.
A couple days later a number of faculty homes held open houses for seminary women to come and see the different ways people decorate for Christmas.
