Thursday afternoon Stan and I went shopping in El Dorado.
Saturday morning in that blizzard Myron and Sally Ammeter of Grand Island, Neb., and Angela, Chad, and Mitchell Bunger arrived. Steve and Melody Magette of Dodge City later joined the group to spend the night. Stan joined us for supper.
We had our Christmas that evening. Chad, Angela, and Mitchell went back home late evening. Such a day. Roads were not good and I couldn't see the church when they all arrived.
Sunday morning church services were canceled. The morning was spent scooping snow. Ty and Marcie Frederickson and Giles came to spend the morning. Stan came after breakfast.
Dinner guests were Stan, Myron, Sally, Steve, and Melody. Afternoon visitors were John Boese, Dylan and Eric. Myron and Sally left late afternoon to go spend the night at Sally's mom's. The Magettes left for Dodge City.

When we got back home Mary Sue and Mike Mayfield had arrived from Lexington, Va., to spend the night. Kathryn Ireland of Newton had come while we were gone. Stan joined the group for supper.
Mike and Mary Sue left for Manhattan Christmas morning to visit Mike's sister and family.
