After checking with the office Tom spent part of today giving the Stinger "B" a much needed and deserved bath. After all she brought us out of the frozen north to the sun and warmth of Arizona. (When I say frozen north I am not kidding back in Escanaba it has been below zero.) She now looks a lot better with the salt and road grime gone. I did some chores inside and took down the Christmas Decorations. We will be moving on Thursday and it just made sense to pack them away for the year. Though I will leave the Nativity Scene on the mirror until the Epiphany, when the Church celebrates the arrival of Three Kings, on January 6, 2018. When we celebrated the Christmas Holidays in our house the decorations and the tree did not come down until after this weekend.

Later we spent time on the Messenger Video Chat watching our daughter's three children open Christmas Gifts. Her oldest daughter, Charlotte, spent Christmas with her father so they waited until she came home to celebrate. Nate is 2 and Adelaide is 1 which means they really did not realize it was not the actual day.

This morning started with us watching our daughter's children open their gifts from Santa. Charlotte understands that it is not actually Christmas morning but she still believes that Santa would make a special trip so they could celebrate when she came home.
Though we did not get to see our son and daughter-in-law's children open gifts Christmas Morning, and there is a part of us that is grateful about that as it would have been before 6:00am. We have been getting pictures of them enjoying their various gifts. Though, we did get to watch them open their pajamas and quickly put them on Christmas Eve.
Today we planned to make a quick trip over to Tombstone. I wanted to do some shopping for a couple of things for the inside of the Stinger "B" and I was pretty sure I would find what I wanted there. (I will share my finds as soon as we get them in place.) Plus, it is just fun to take a walk up and down the street.

After leaving Tombstone we headed over to Sierra Vista to pick up a few groceries at Fry's and Walmart. Plus, I wanted to make a stop at Hobby Lobby to check out if they had any good deals on wrapping paper for next year. They still had some left that I liked and at 60% off one good size roll fits under the bed.
We stopped at Chipotle Mexican Grill for dinner and then headed back home. So ends are time in this area for 2017.
We enjoyed our day and we hope you did the same.
Thank you for stopping by. If you would like to leave a comment we would enjoy hearing from you.
