Christmas Eve

Karin had the morning free and came down to work with Diane and I helping us get done by noon. There was plenty to do and never enough time to do it. They brought us down lunch, which was left overs from the Christmas party the day before but by eating while working we were able to pull out of there by 11:45 am. Karin was going with Rhoda and I to pick up the new round pen so I took her first to her car for a few items then to the truck. The truck was only covered by a half inch of ice and of course the doors are frozen shut. We were able to get one door open, tried to start the truck and the battery was dead. The hood was so covered with thick ice we could not get it up without dumping 5 buckets of hot water over it and using a screw driver to chip ice off. Finally we got the battery charging then drove down to the house to get the address and phone number of the place we were heading. I called the number given to explain we were running a bit late but only got the answering machine so left the message we would probably be there by 2:30 pm instead of 2:00 pm. I decided to message them also, turned on the computer to find a message from them asking if we had been there already and picked up the round pen. Someone drove up, loaded up the round pen and left the money in their house. Thank goodness we got that message before heading out.
That gave us the afternoon for other things like work on Mark's aquaponic stuff in the basement. Below Rhoda, Ben and Mark are putting together the stand for the plants.
Once that was up the top tanks were installed. I'll get pictures of that later. Taunya came over with Jace and of course that meant pictures. Jace had just as much fun with the dogs as Israel did when he was over.

We decided to go to Red Robin for dinner after calling and finding out they had no wait tonight. Anna and Braelyn met us there. After dinner it was Jack and Addyson's turn to open presents.

The kids have all left for the apartment, the house is quiet and I am more than ready for bed.
