We didn't box anything up on Boxing Day, but we did plate up a bunch of cookies to take with us to Whidbey Island.
We made the trip across the sound to spend some time with Tom's brother Dave, his wife Vicki, sister Jan, and Dave and Vicki's daughter Julie, her husband Dave, and their kids Sara and Brian.
Whidbey Island got Christmas snow too, and while the snow was gone from the beach by Tuesday, it still lingered around the lagoon.
The California Reeders had decided to come north for Christmas and spend it at the island cabin. The snow was an extra special gift.
We had a good visit with all of the bunch, and most of us went out to lunch together in Langley. After lunch we walked over to the Bud and Bernice Reeder memorial benches to pose for photos.
Here are the three siblings.
And here are the rest of the bunch, minus Brian, and me, since I am behind the camera.
That was Tuesday. Since then we have kept busy at home, going through Christmas gifts, putting away a few things, and dealing with technology issues.
We had our hard drive scrubbed before Christmas, and then Comcast sent us an updated modem. All of that meant lost programs and devices that needed to restore communication with each other. On top of that, I lost my credit card just before Christmas, and the new one finally arrived in the mail today.
As of right now, I think we have everything working, iTunes restored, Carbonite backup reconnected with the computer, and after typing in lots of email address, I think my email address book is once again complete. I have changed my credit card info on all accounts where it was the method of payment. Tad, our tech guy, stopped by to clean up a few other things. Whew!
Now, since the weather is nasty, I think I'll have to dust off my stationary bike out in the garage and do some indoor exercising.
At least I can read my book that way. I won't find time otherwise. :-)
