Christmas 2020

Well, it’s been a year, for sure. But we’re still thankful for our blessings. We didn’t do most of our normal Christmas celebratory activities this year for obvious reasons. But we did put together this short video to commemorate the holiday.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!

Christmas 2018

KC Plaza – Christmas 2018

We had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed celebrating the season. We decided to put up a cat-proof tree this year… a real tree with nothing “breaky” on it. The smell of the real tree permeated the house – something we’ve not enjoyed for years – so at least there was an olfactory silver lining to our visually unimpressive decoration.

New Year’s Eve in Kansas City – Afternoon Snow!

Kansas City Plaza from the Intercontinental Hotel – Christmas 2018

We had some time to kill on New Year’s Eve in Kansas City. We drove from the Plaza to downtown and back. Along the way, around the Brookside neighborhood, we encountered a brief but magical snow shower. The temperature was about 40 degrees and the snowflakes were wet and huge!

Happy 2019 and hope you enjoy!
