Christmas dinner doesn’t go as planned

    Hope you all had a great Christmas. We had one sick, so my second son couldn’t come, and my son-in-law had to stay home with their cat who had an infected tooth; she had to be on antibiotics, so he had to stay home to take care of her. We had 20, and a nice day. It did get foggy towards late afternoon so my granddaughter and family from northern Illinois left early, and so did my daughter. She had been here since Wed. afternoon so was anxious to get back home to see her hubby and the sick cat. My son from Missouri stayed till Sunday and then left around noon. He called that he had gotten home around 3:15, and when almost home ran into icing, and then snow which had covered the ground just as he got home. Some stayed and visited for a while but we made it an early evening.
