Christmas Day was fairly quiet during the day. That night we went to our friend Diana's home for dinner. She had invited quite a few people over for a buffet potluck dinner and a night of "Battle of the Sexes". The food was so good. Lots of wonderful crab legs, sauteed shrimp, tri-tip, and other yummy things. It was so nice to be included in the celebration of others and have a nice change to what we have done for the last several years.
Tom and Maddy celebrated Christmas Day in Wichita. They were able to get leave on the 27th and flew into Seattle. They got up early Sunday morning to travel here and spend our family Christmas together. We had some breakfast and then did our gift opening.
Tuesday was spent working on wedding planning of sorts. Bill and Chris needed to get their wedding attire. We went to Men's Wearhouse and found that it is a lot more complicated process than one would think. None of the items that they needed were in stock there and they were having some difficulty finding which stores to order things from. Chris' wasn't so hard but getting things for Bill were much more difficult. Hopefully it will all work out eventually. Now we have to start looking for some cowboy boots for them.
Early Wednesday morning (New Years Eve), they left to go back to Kirkland to spend the next few days with Maddy's parents. It was a very nice visit. Looking forward to seeing them again in June when we have their wedding.
