Well.....the 4 Frisco Blackfords got to experience the first WHITE CHRISTMAS Dallas has seen since 1926! Before that Dallas had Snow on Christmas only in 1871 and 1849. Unbelievable!!!
Relatives were hosted, turkeys were roasted, dressing was consumed, libations swilled and copious amounts of wrapping paper were torn as gifts were exchanged.
The big ticket items:
To Me from Stacey-An iPhone (my conversion to the Dark Side is almost complete)
To Kate from Santa - a new Gateway tablet laptop. EVERYONE---Please email her at email@example.com
To Stacey from Robert - new pair of Dynastar Exclusive Carve Skis and an iPhone too!!!
To Preston - a Transformers helmet, a play toy shotgun, a Nerf sword, & a Tony Romo jersey
In Lonoke........the big shocker. Kate received a Remington model 700 SPS Youth .243 rifle with scope for deer hunting!!!!! My jaw hit the floor!!!!
We spolied each other for sure. Best of all, we were able to have a perfect 2pm Eucharist family service as it snowed to celebrate the birth of Christ.
2009 will be remembered for time with family and the Christmas Season.
Happy New Year to all!!!!
