Christmas Eve in Memphis

Yesterday Kate and I drove up to Memphis to spend Christmas with our daughter and her family. We came in late in the afternoon and just about an hour before going out to dinner. Following that we returned home where we watched The Grinch that Stole Christmas and a portion of Disney’s version of A Christmas Carol. It was a nice evening

Today has been leisurely for Kate and me. Although we both woke up around 5:00, we went back to sleep, and I didn’t get up until almost 7:30. Kate remained in bed an hour or so longer

Jesse worked on the preparation of a cheesecake for our dessert tomorrow and a shrimp salad she was preparing for a drop-in at her neighbor’s across the street. We all went to lunch at the old train station there. It was a delightful ride over and back with a lunch that was quite good.
