Congratulations to Shennie on her new car. Hers is red and my two are blue and white!! (hence the title!) Jessica and I got to talk to David for about 20 minutes yesterday (11/27). He had the day off so he sounded well and rested. He told us a little bit more about the Camp and the happenings - some interesting stuff...nothing to share on the blog, though. He was hoping to move into more permanent living quarters soon since the brigrade they are replacing has all left. Once he is moved in, I am sure he will feel more settled and comfortable. One thing he did mention was that it was actually getting "cold" there at night...~40 degrees Farenheit. During the day the temps are around 70. I guess that is better than arriving there in the heat of the summer when temps can reach 130 degrees!
Well - I have officially started my Christmas shopping and I am sure that Walmart and Kohl's appreciate that! We are actually trying to keep gift giving reasonable this year. The kids all drew names (except for DA). The dad and I still get to buy for everyone!! See what happens when you put the kids in charge!
DA - I will be putting a box together this week and getting it mailed out. Some will be Christmas, the rest just "stuff". You can open it whenver you want. I will wrap the Christmas stuff so you can save that for the 25th, and open the rest when you get the box.
Jennie and I went to the Clay Aiken concert at the Fox last night. It was very good. He has quite a voice range and had some nice new arrangements for some Christmas songs. My only recommendation as he continues in his career is that he develop "stage presence". Last night, he just stood and sang. I'm sure that wil come with time and experience.
Gotta run - timer is going off indicating that dinner is ready!!
Love you & KYHD,
