We hope everyone enjoyed the first leg of this holiday season marathon. We traveled to Illinois, like we do most years, spreading our time there between our families. We also had a 90th birthday celebration for my (Kerry’s) mom who will turn 90 later in December. The plan is to stay around Ely for most of December and enjoy the balance of the holidays at home.
We missed the Christmas/Holiday parade in Ely again. They always have it Thanksgiving weekend so we have only attended one in our 21 years up in Ely. The word is it was a nice event: a fraction of the extravaganza we have on the 4th of July which everyone needs to see at least one time in their life.
Many of the winter activities will start soon. Ice fishing, dog sled treks, snowmobiling and skiing and among a few.
Watch for our snail mail holiday letter over the next couple of weeks. I will also post it on the web site under the monthly newsletters tab.
We do plan on attending the same sport shows this upcoming Spring:
- Schaumburg, IL
- Tinly Park, IL
- Eau Claire, WI
- Minneapolis, MN
I will post the exact dates in future newsletters and on our Facebook page.
