Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah!

Merry Christmas and Happy Chanukah!

Hope you all had a Merry Christmas, or are still enjoying Chanukah!

We hung out at John and Carol's house on Christmas Eve, then just stayed home Christmas Day. The following are pictures from John and Carol's house.
 Jack is always a blur.
 There are no great pictures of everyone together (at least on my phone), so this picture, I choose Lillie!
 Everyone is busy opening presents.
 Before dinner and presents we did a white elephant gift exchange. This year the gift was socks. There were some pretty good socks to choose from, but I will admit, the Ostergard family is not too fond of stealing other's gifts. LOL!
Cat fingertip. Whoa. Lots of fun had by all. After dinner we attended the 7:30 pm church service. Christmas Eve Service is always quite a service. Christmas started a little later this year at our house. Why? Teenagers and beyond are the kids these days. Maren and I woke up around 9:30am and had to wait to open presents until the kids woke up at 11:00am. For the record, I'm good with the late start, while the 5:00am starts were magical and exciting, sleep is good too!
Chanukah began on the 24th. We do have the menorah my grandfather gave us. Happy Chanukah!
Costco golf balls in this blog? Sure, they are the hottest thing in the golf world. Costco is offering a tour quality golf ball for $30.00 for a double dozen. This is crazy cheap. Two dozen Titleist tour golf balls would be $100.00. Anyhow, Costco's website crashed and these balls sold out in 10 minutes online, and really never made it to stores. But not everyone knows just what a deal these balls are. In fact, I found a brand new unopened double dozen at a second hand sports store this morning for only $10.99. I could sell them right now for $65.00 on eBay, but I will keep these for summer time!

See you tomorrow.
