We take the trek ALL THE WAY ACROSS PHOENIX, to Surprise to see Elaine and Jim at their house. It is a very nice floor plan and just the right size. It is on an acreage almost next to Jim's folks, and they both enjoy being there and in Arizona vs. Kansas. We enjoy a great dinner, laughs and Steve goes for a ride in the RTV. Jim gave him the ride of his life!
We took a scenic drive to the town of Grove and ate the best Mexican food in several years at La Casita in the historic downtown. YUM!!!
We go to the Christmas Eve evening candle light service in the Ballroom here at Monte Vista, get to sing Carols, and have cookies and cider after. Lots of nice people decided not to leave for Christmas, so there is a full house.
We are also participating in the Christmas Dinner today, so plan on eating lots of good pot-luck food!!!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!!
