Christmas Eve at Joe and Nancy's tonight.
They gave everyone one of these Christmas Tree ornaments
commemorating over 50 years of Mattsons gathering
each Christmas Eve.
Sometimes it pays off to be just down to the wire
with publishing a Christmas Greeting Blog.

The Shop is not decorated this year but next year it will have a big wreath
 on the double doors and a sign that says Santa's Workshop above them!

Our friend, Forrest, Santa's Elf making a doll house for his kids!
It turned out very well.  Lucky kiddies.

Merry Christmas To All And To All A Good Night!

With Love, Bonnie & Jim
