Vacation and Baking

We have been in Florida for family vacation and Christmas with our daughter and her family.  Then we spent a week of relaxation in Bradenton.  Bought a car!  And now I am getting ready for more Christmas with our Daam family tonight and Davis family on Christmas day.
Will, Erin, Elise and Irelyn.
 Me, Jack and Jaclyn.

 Grampy/Dad could not pass up setting up an appointment for the girls to get their hair, makeup and nails done.  Awwww!

 There was even time to catch lunch with a friend!  I am so glad that worked out Nancy!

 The first week in the Disney area the weather was perfect.  The 2nd week while we were at Bradenton it rained for four days.  Here is a moment with a break in the clouds on Ana Maria Island to catch the sunset and grab some shells.  It was gorgeous. 

This is my new Toyota Solara!  Well, new to me!  2001, 16,100 miles!  14,500 when we bought it last week.  LOVE it.

Here is the Davis tradition of making Julekage.  Julekage is Swedish Christmas Bread.  Sooooo yummy!

The caramels need to be cut and wrapped.
I also made Ruskies!

Have a Merry Christmas!
