It seems ev­ery­one had a busy hol­i­day sea­son with com­pany or be­ing away. The Ferguson fam­ily had their an­nual fam­ily gath­er­ing Christ­mas Eve and their im­me­di­ate fam­ily Christ­mas Day. Their New Year’s was just fam­ily.

The Mueller’ s had all the fam­ily home for Christ­mas ex­cept Maddy who is in Aus­tralia for the next sev­eral months with her work and Don­ald and Sheri had a quiet New Year’s.

Mike and Judy Bor­wick left be­fore Christ­mas to go to Ross­land to Holly’ s where they en­joyed Holly and cousin Meaghan do­ing the cook­ing. Their weather was much warmer than here so they did some ski­ing and hik­ing. Holly came back with them for a few days as she w as at­tend­ing a wed­ding for a girl­friend from Three Hills.

Donna Wil­ton had Jor­dan and his lady friend Mikayle here for a week which she en­joyed. Mikayle lives in Van­cou­ver and Jor­dan lives and works in Kelowna. Colleen was home of course and Box­ing Day they were all at Ca land Deb­bie Werner’ s in the Hand Hills. Sis­ter Linda and hubby Gary from Cal­gary were there too and their son Ross and wife Karly from Van­cou­ver so, it was a lot of la ughs I’m sure. For New Year’s, Donna and Colleen were in Cal­gary at Chris and Karen’s so a busy time for all.

John and Wanda Mo ar were home for Christ­mas but miss ed hav­ing Te anna home as she and Kirsty Bell were hol­i­day in gin Am­s­ter­dam and Hol­land. Dur­ing the hol­i­days, Wand a was in Swift Cur­rent to spend New Year’s with her mother. All the univer­sity and col­lege stu­dents are back to the grind.

The Bell’s were in Strath more with Kathy’s folks for Christ­mas and on the 28th were in Gle­ichen at her br other’s. For New Year’s they were in Cal­gary to see Rob and Steven and fam­i­lies.

My Christ­mas was busy with Roberta, grand daugh­ter from Le th bridge, and friend Marc from near St. Paul, com­ing on De­cem­ber 23, grand daugh­ter Tr­ish and Adam Pi­geon and girls Eva, Her a, Gemma and Lex a came on t he 24th from St . Paul and Christ­mas Eve grand daugh­ter Meaghan West and sons Jack and Cooper as well as my son Rick and his s ons Matt and Jay­den. Some of the Beiseker and Air­drie folks were back Christ­mas day for a short visit and Lau­rie and Ken from La mont were here for a short visit Box­ing Day. Dur­ing the week, Mar­jorie Carter f rom Ed­mon­ton and her daugh­ters Danielle, Ch erie and Katisha from Red Deer, as well as her brother Don from Cal­gary stopped for a short visit.

They had been to Hanna to visit mother Be a Carter in hos­pi­tal. I had a few days rest and on the 28 th, grand­son Chad Ke­ichinger, Cather­ine and daugh­ter Cassie and friend Cosette from Wey­burn, Sk., came as well as Matt and Jay­den. We rang my big bell in the back yard at mid­night which has been a tra­di­tion in the Cur­rie fam­ily since 1950.

Allin all, a great hol­i­day time with late nights, card games and fun. A love ly way to start a ne w year.

Have a good week and the weather is still go­ing to be a tem­per­a­men­tal thing. Dress warm
