On Christmast evening we went to Dallas’ Auntie Gail’s house in Mt. Prospect for dinner and a gift exchange. She made beef tenderloin that had to be some of the best I’ve ever eaten. I even took seconds, and I rarely even eat steak.

Later on the $10 grab bag/gift exchange got pretty crazy but Dallas and I were able to team up to get the gift we wanted. It was a set of Japanese bowls that we suspected that Doug & Naoko brought. Luckily we were right. I think next year there’s going to be a rule in place because our strategy was copied by others and then the game got repetitive and, I guess, unfair.

Oh, and there was a little football game on. The Packers lost, but I’m glad it wasn’t a total blow out. I was afraid of what was going to happen to me in a house full of Bears fans. Luckily, they were pretty merciful. Except for Chris, who is like 9 years old and full of all kinds of trash talk.

    Hi Rachelle,

    I was looking something up on the internet and put my name in. There are never any Glennas anywhere so I was surprised to find there are more out there than just me. As I started to puruse the pics I found a picture of me and your website. I enjoyed looking at it; It did take an hour to download however, so I didn’t get to read much, just little captions here and there. I understand you do web pages. I’ve been wanteing to do sales on the internet for a while, but haven’t come up with anything yet. When I do I might need your services as a web page designer. Maybe down the road I can get some prices from you. I’ll keep you posted as to my progress. Glenna
