Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: 2016 Week 52

First photo is me, in the grocery store monitor. Next is a metal bench and luggage carts outside the DFW airport. Last photo isn’t really so odd, but was fun. I saw these carolers outside the grocery store. They were taking donations for the Salvation Army. They also had their cute dog dressed up for the occasion, and were asking people passing by to join in their singing. I did for a minute on the song Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. (I forgot to put this photo on my Christmas post, and wanted to just add it here.) 🙂

There were a couple of writing challenges for the month of December that were suggested to me by a blogging friend. Her blog is called “Zombie Flamingoes”, and can be found here: https://zombieflamingoes.com/2016/12/01/christmas-writing-prompt-1-last-christmas/

They looked fun and interesting to do, so I’ll follow the writing prompts, and hope you enjoy reading.

Last Christmas, 2015, we spent an early Christmas with our daughter, son-in-law, and grand-daughter, here in town. It was a fun evening, with food, and gift exchange. We didn’t watch any TV on this night, or play any games. We gave our grand-daughter a princess dress, like the one from the movie “Frozen”. She loved it, and had to put it on right away. Then she sang us the ‘let it go’ song:)

A few days later, we flew out of state to spend Christmas with our other daughter, son-in-law, and grandson. We had a fun few days with them. Our visits never seem to last long enough, though. While there, we went to the mall, and out to eat at a fabulous smokey wing place, walked around in the downtown area to have an ice cream at Sparky’s. Christmas morning we had our gift exchange. We all received new P.J.s pants. Mine was leopard print! We spent time during the visit, by playing scrabble, watching kid movies, eating snacks, and coloring. We had a good time.

Now, this is the bad part. We had to cut our visit short by a couple of days. Back home a blizzard was forecasted, so we needed to get home. We didn’t know how bad it would be, our neighbor was caring for our cats, and the house needed looking after in the bad weather. Sure enough, we did get stuck in the Dallas/Ft.Worth airport. All planes were grounded because of the blizzard and it would be at least a couple of days before we could fly out of there. We decided to just rent a car and drive the rest of the way home. It was horrible! Creeping along the whiteout highways, at night, was scary. We finally did make it home, though. We won’t forget this Christmas!
