1984 Catherine's Letter -Nov.26
Dear Mother & Dad,
Hi! Just a quick note to let you know we survived Thanksgiving! Had quite a good dinner considering we cooked it ourselves and we ate on our best china -- the royal violet of course which made it extra special. Wendy enjoyed drinking water out of our fancy glasses too. She made a toast everytime she took a drink.
Friday she and Gerry went to see the arrival of Santa Claus in Colfax. It turned out to be a very young looking Mrs. Santa. Wendy is beginning to have her doubts anyway! She told me later that she thought the real Santa was probably busy at the North Pole until Christmas and that all these other Santas were just dressed up to look like him.
Gerry ended up having Friday and Saturday off so it made an extra long weekend for him and Wendy. They closed Jones T&I up for the weekend. I am looking forward to two long weekends - a four day weekend over Christmas and three days at New Years so that will be nice.
We are hoping to go to Spokane soon to do some Christmas shopping. Wendy has money she got for her birthday she wants to spend at Toys-r-us.
We talked to Roberta on Thanksgiving. She always keeps us informed on all the family news.
We got out our Christmas decorations yesterday and put a few things around the house to put us in the spirit. This house is so dreary that it helps cheer it up!
Time to go downtown.
Love, Catherine, Gerry & Wendy
