After our Christmas morning at home and a quick trip to Grandma & Grandpa England's to open some presents, we loaded up and headed down to the ranch. Sherry waited for us to get there to open her presents.
She was pretty excited about her new iPad. She said, "Now you kids can't buy me anything else until I die! I priced those and know how much they cost!"
Then the tears started to flow when she opened the book that Darin and Christy put together for her. It was a book of all the notes and comments from the blog about Pat. There were also pictures and lots of fun memories from the week of Pat's funeral. It is an awesome book and something the whole family is going to love to have.
Of course the day wouldn't have been complete without a fabulous Christmas dinner of prime rib, potatoes and Darin's out-of-this-world rolls to finish out the day. The kids were thrilled to hang out with the Nielson cousins if only for a day and a half.
And a trip to the ranch is also never complete without a puzzle! Thanks to Emerson for helping me finish it up---all in one day.
