Christmas Season 2018 with Marnie and Friends!

Awesome parties and food!

Our Retirement In Idaho

Such a super time with family and friends. And all at the beautiful Marnie’s Pond in Marsing, ID. Thank you Marnie, for hosting these events. And thank you to everyone who attended the events – The Cookie Swap and the Christmas Day Dinner. And to come – the New Years Day Celebration! So many parties and so little time. Marsing and the Snake River with Lizard Butte in the background, is beautiful!
The cookie swap was a great and full fullfilling event. Here are some of the cookies.

Awesome Thanksgiving Dinner at Marnie’s

Super great Thanksgiving dinner at Marnie’s!

Our Retirement In Idaho

And the weather was great! Great to have dinner with Robin, Marnie, Erick, Chris, Anna, Myra and Lola – pictured here. Great to have a “pot-luck” type dinner. Marnie made the turkey and stuffing from Acme Bakeshop Sourdough. Erick made the fresh caught salmon dip and deer jerky. Robin and I made the dried corn, mashed potatoes, cranberry and brought the wines. Anna made superb pecan pie and pumpkin pie with whipped cream. Oh yum, it was delicious! Thanks to everyone. Here is what we had. Enjoy! We did. (Left-Click any of these photos to them enlarged.)
