It's Christmas Eve!

We woke up to snow this morning - about an inch! So, we're having a white Christmas in Kansas this year. I gotta say, though, I sure don't miss this stuff! :)

Randy doesn't miss having to scrape windshields, either.

Once everyone got up and moving, we went to Cracker Barrel for brunch. As always, it was good food. Doesn't it look yummy? This is our 62nd CB since we starting full-timing. Randy's making progress on his goal of eating at all of the CBs in the USA!

After breakfast we took a ride over to Owl's Nest Campground which is just a few miles west of Ft. Riley. This is the campground I think we'll be staying at when we visit the kids again in May. It's not much, less than 50 sites just off the highway and next to a storage compound. We're also going to check out one of the state parks which is just up the road. I don't really care where we stay, I just want to be with Kev & Sara.

This afternoon was spent lounging as has become the norm while we're, just reading, cross stitching, and playing on the computer. Hey! That sounds like the norm when we're home, too! :)

Randy & I went to the Christmas Eve service that was held at one of the chapels here on base. It was okay. The chaplain did a nice message, but it's hard not being in a familiar church on special occasions. I kinda miss that. But, I got to celebrate the birth of my Savior, Jesus, and that's why I went!

I hope everyone is enjoying this day. Go to sleep soon - Santa's coming!!

Until the next time . . .
