I spent Christmas in Kansas City with my son and his wife. Two of Ann's sisters and their families and her mom were there also. I thoroughly enjoyed being with all of them. Ann's mother and I are just a year apart in age and have been together quite a few times over the years. She is a great lady and fun to be around. It was great to see the nieces and nephews - all grown up now. Day after Christmas, Bill and I went to see "Saving Mr. Banks" - it is one great movie!
The picture of the train above is a very old one made by Hallmark to put Christmas cards in. It belonged to one of Ann's relatives and still collapses to go into the original package. She doesn't put it out every year since it is naturally getting a little brittle and the tabs deteriorating. However, isn't it a cool thing to have? I bet it is worth much more than the original price!
