The Christmas Celebrations begin!

For some people Christmas parties begin almost immediately after Thanksgiving.  My first celebration was Wednesday morning 7 days before Christmas.  I received a bonus from my work! That is always a blessing. I was able to make the final payment on my original house loan! PIF!  :^)

Wednesday evening, Dale, his brother, the dogs and I headed down to my home town, Hutchinson.  We went out for supper when once again we got there a little bit early/just in time!  About twice a year we go to a Chinese buffet on the South side of town.  I've never seen anyone there that I know.  Tonight, I ran into a member from one of my old bowling teams.  Joyce and I had a short time to catch up. 

On the way home, we stopped by my Aunt and Uncles.  I know that Aunt Katie is not well enough to bake Christmas cookies. So I took a plate full of cookies with to leave with them. Aunt Katie always loves to see the dogs.  She gets a kick out of the doggies giving her kisses.

by invitation: Duchess kisses Katie
 Duchess started barking as soon as she saw Bill and Katie's house.  She's been here before and she knows how much love she gets from Katie. She came straight in and found Katie who invited her up for kisses.

 Misty Blue wasn't so sure about meeting Katie.  A few times throughout the evening she snuck up behind Katie and gave her little puppy kisses by the ear.  It takes Misty meeting someone a few times before she totally warms up to them.

 Part way through the evening, Misty found Grandpa Dale to make sure that she had not been left behind. She gave him puppy kisses and a hug then ran off to play some more. (Not before trying to eat a couple of decorations off from the tree.)

No visit with relatives is complete without a picture.  Out of nowhere Aunt Katie said, "Smile you're on Candid Camera!" Nothing candid about this camera.
