|It's been so cold our beautiful wreath has stopped|
dropping needles!! Think they're frozen. haha.
15 degrees this am with a high of 37! Brrrrr...
Friday the 13th was my 64th Birthday!!! How did that happen?! Luckily most of the time I don't feel like I should be 64 so I consider that a blessing. I heard from all my sons along with daughter in law Cheryl who called trying to beat the crowd.Haha. She didn't, as Russell had called first. Heard from 3 of the 4 grandsons that were able to call. Seth is at MCT school, so he couldn't call if he wanted to. Adam forgot, but I talked with him the day before. So many shoutouts on FB and on my phone. :) Happy Day!
Ken offered to take me to breakfast and/or lunch but i was happy to stay home. We had plans to go to Karen's for dinner. We headed over late afternoon and had a wonderful time. Her grandson, Niko is my Birthday Buddy. He turned 9! He's such a cutie and gives the best hugs :) I've got another buddy..Haylee Madsen, she turned 17 and is just a doll!

We probably spent too much time by her large propane fire pit, but that's ok we certainly enjoyed.
Saturday morning we picked up Karen at 0915 and headed to Fallon about an hour away from here. We were headed to Just Country Friends an antique shop we enjoy. Spent a couple of hours there and she spent a lot of $$. I spent $5.00 on a old red sauce pan and Ken spent $45.00 on a cast iron kettle for the wood stove. After that we headed for Stockman's Casino for a nice lunch. After that we headed home as we had a parade to attend later.
Our little town holds a Parade of Lights in December. This was the 3rd annual and what a turn out! They had 51 entries which were pretty amazing. It was certainly cold and in my mind I thanked my sister for my Uggs she bought me a few years back!! We headed over to Karen's mom's house for a bit before heading home.
|Miss Izzie, Karen's mom...💜|

cold it was! 💗

Sunday morning we got a call from Adam saying he wanted to come over. He worked at the pizza parlor from 1000 to 1600 then he was driving over. I told him his Papa had a dr appointment Monday, he was welcome to run around with us if he wanted. He got here about 2000 and of course being a boy, he was starving! Luckily Ken had bar b qued some awesome chicken and I made mashed potatoes so he had a hearty meal. It was a pretty early night for us all. In the end he decided he was just going to head for home in the am. We always say this kid has the gypsy in him...he likes driving and going if he's got a few days off. 😀
Today we said goodbye to him as we left first. The Dr. appointment went well. Dr. Foster is so awesome! He wants Ken to get a CAT Scan in April and then come back. He's still shaking his head to figure out why Ken had the issues he did. I got my hug before I left. :)
We did a bunch of running around in Carson City and then had a late lunch/dinner at Betsy's Big Kitchen. We lucked out and got Lisa once again. turned out we were talking about how great she is and it turns out we were sitting right next to her sister and Lisa's husband! They enjoyed hearing us talk so good about her. :)
We headed home and I wrapped a few presents. We've decided to head for CA and to visit Ken's mom tomorrow. Her birthday is Wednesday but it's supposed to be snowing over the summit! It'll be a one day turnaround as next week we'll be over for a few days because it's Christmas.
Have a good night!
