Laura came to visit December 10th through the 15th and it wasn't long enough! What a wonderful time we had. Laura is from Texas and she wanted to see snow. Even the weather co-operated and we had two white days before she left. We went to see the wolves, all of the beautiful lights in Coeur d'Alene, saw the Festival of Trees at the Davenport Hotel in Spokane, and enjoyed the beauty of the restored hotel. We all went to the movies and saw Blindsided, if you haven't seen it, it is fabulous. We were so fortunate that the eagles are here at the lake this time of year. It is amazing seeing them overhead and then swooping down and scooping up a fish. Laura saw kids ice skating on a lake and was thrilled! She couldn't imagine that men ice fish. She was quite taken with our beautiful area, no surprise. I am still recuperating so we weren't able to do a lot of walking touristy things, but we gave her the famous "Jim Tour" of Coeur d'Alene and area in the car. She and I had a wonderful time watching Christmas movies late into the night . We miss you Laura!

This is from Mary:
Glad Laura's visit went so well and that the two of you (You & Jim) are feeling so much better! You both look fabulous!! 100% better than last year when you visited here! I'm guessing the Good Lord has it in mind to improve your condition one way or the other!!
