In the spirit of the season, Kevin and Joy invited us to go with them to view the Motor Speedway annual Christmas light display last week. The photos do not do justice to the many displays. It is a driving tour that lasts once you begin around an hour. The most delay is the line going in until you pass the Boy Scout food offerings as a fund raiser. We just gave a donation.
Anyway above are some of the photos.
Our neighbor across has a very pretty display and should take first prize. Think last year he took second.
Each year I get out the Christmas plate that grandsons Ryan and Michael gave us in 2000.

Tonight we were invited to Celebrate Joy and Kevin's 41st anniversary along with their friends Nellis and JR at Vino's Italian restaurant in the Cannery Casino. Everyone got something different and there were no complaints on the service or the food.John enjoyed his eggplant and I my salmon. Mother used to make him eggplant which he always enjoyed. So into conversation that I forgot to take a photo of group. It was an enjoyable evening and thank you for including us.Sorry I did not take a photo.
Darwin & Pat invited us over along with Bill and Lorraine for dinner. Darwin had prepared a whole chicken and baked potatoes on his Traeger Grill and Pat fixed dressing. I took a salad and Lorraine brought cottage cheese, peaches and pumpkin dessert roll. It was a fun evening. Thank you.

We rode with Joy and Kevin to the Bagel Cafe for lunch. Denise and Phil joined us. Our first visit this year. On the way out had to stop at the bakery and get a piece of coconut cake and some bagels with craisin cream cheese for later. Definitely not on our diet. We then went with Joy and Kevin to the Bellagio to see their Christmas display. Absolutely beautiful. Thank you Kevin and Joy for chauffeuring us..you are the best.

Once again we were invited over to Pat and Darwin's for homemade chicken noodle soup. I took fruit salad and Texas toast along with remains of coconut cake. Soup was delicious..nothing like homemade soup. Had lots of laughs and good conversation. Thank you.
