My 17 Days Of  Christmas 

Day 2 - December 28th

Went shopping with the girls yesterday.  We went to a very nice outdoor Mall .  Little known to  me their destination was the Apple Store where they bought a new phone for me.  My old phone’s battery was dying and didn’t have much storage.  So they thought was time for me to have an update. 

We had steaks, baked potatoes and corn for dinner at the table out by the pool.  And later in the evening DD and her family arrived.  They didn’t have their hotel available until the next day so spent the night in DS#4’s living room.  They said the drive had been terribel with heavy traffic  and were very happy to finally get here.  

Meanwhile there are still three  more that will arrive today sometime. DDIL#1, DS#5 and DS#6 and their families.  It’ll be a day to great the new arrivals and just hang out here visiting

Good morning!
Wow on that iPhone surprise. Your children are not only generous but so very thoughtful. So cute, your little guy in the pool. Judging from his expression, I wonder if the water isn't c-c-c-cold.

That is a cool outdoor area with the pool! Is it covered? Your dinner last night sounded wonderfully delicious!! Hoping by now the rest of your family arrived and all are enjoying being together!

What a great surprise with the upgrade on the IPhone!!!!

Well, well well, the phone is a good surprise. They do age out, and WE DO add too much and eat up storage. Glad you got the update.
Love the entry and the pictures of family time.
SWEET,
Sherry & jack
