Christmas 2018

Christmas 2018 has been wonderful.  Everyone was here and free of school and work for several days in a row.  The weather has been brisk and rainy, but it has been fun having all of our grandkids around us.  Marty & Hailey and the boys made the two day drive from Missouri to be in St. George for the Holiday break.  Angie has just finished her NNP schooling and is enjoying some free time finally.  Eric is getting ready to move back up to Provo to attend UVU.  Sheri & Pete are doing their thing with their little clan in tow everyday.  Becca & Steve are preparing for the arrival of their first child. Grandpa Quaife came up from Long Beach to be with us.   Deb and I are suffering with minor yet nagging musculoskeletal issues that have hampered our usual activities (biceps tendonitis, herniated disc). Hopefully those things will resolve in the near future. Last evening we had an "adults only" Christmas Party.  We began by attending a temple session at the St. George Temple.  It was a small session and it was so nice to have all of our children around us in the Celestial Room. Dinner and games at home finished off the evening in a fun warm manner.
