"People from a planet without flowers
would think we must be mad with joy the whole time
to have such things about us."

The Beans are on their way.

Guess who's coming up to see Noni and Papa?
Our wonderful grandchildren... and their Mommy.
They're on their way. They will be here for a few days.
We don't have snow. I wish we did. Still, it's beautiful. Very cold!
We are going to play in the town park and bake cookies. I bought a cookie press so we can make Spritz cookies and decorate them. The boys will get to go find chicken eggs and talk to the goats... and play with Carl and Cutter.... and sleep in sleeping bags under the Christmas tree.
Daddy has to work. We will miss him so much. Wish he could be here too.
Got to go and wrap some gifts.
Merry Christmas to all...

(p.s. The owl left yesterday morning and hasn't come back. Guess he's on to better feeding grounds.)

So glad the little guys and their Mom are coming for the holidays. I bet you and The Prospecter can hardly wait. Cutter and Carl may never be the same,lol. Have a wonderful time and enjoy every minute.

If that owl shows up under my eaves, I will shout, "Gloria, in Excelsis Deo!" Followed by the strains of the theme from Twilight Zone... :)

Merry Christmas!
