Christmas 2017: Family time

Matt, Jennifer, Katie and Daniel, our kids from Nebraska, were here at Christmas time. I had a few pictures that I wanted to Blog about. Mostly, I just wanted to get the photos out there and not hidden in some picture file.

The guys played some golf since the days were nice.

We put together a jigsaw puzzle. I’m in my jammies. Matt and Jennifer worked on it too but I was a bit fanatical.

Katie was learning to knit using large needles and giant yarn. She also did a lot of studying and enjoyed our back patio peace and quiet.

The oranges and grapefruits were ready to pick and were delicious. Daniel is holding an example orange. Our trees outdid themselves this year.

This is us. Matthew, me, Katie, Jennifer and Daniel. Dave was there taking the photo. We were getting ready to meet with the McKee family for pizza and a visit. Our kids and Bill’s kids had never met. Bill and Dave are first cousins.

Jennifer wasn’t in the photo since she was using the camera. Pictured left to right: Dave, Matthew Brinkman (our son), Bruce McKee, his daughter Hannah, Wendy (Bruce’s wife), Sydney (Bruce and Wendy’s second daughter), myself, Chele McKee, Katie Brinkman, Bill McKee (father of Bruce and Chele), and Daniel Brinkman.

We had beautiful weather, not very Christmas-like but we got some decorations up and enjoyed their festive-ness. It would have been an even better Christmas if our son Ross could have been with us.
