Lukas and Annika are with us this weekend as they have come for their annual “Festivus: For the Best of Us and the Rest of Us.” (I wrote about this in Jesus Creed.) Last year it had grown to over 200 people and who knows how many will show up this year.
We will also celebrate Christmas with them while they are here, since we won’t see them until after Christmas. Luke couldn’t wait to open his Nintendo Wii — so he spent the evening playing golf, tennis, etc. on this new contraption. I’m not much for games, and when it comes to golf I prefer the real thing … which gets me to wondering why it is that we live up here in the cold when my buddy, Kermit, lives in Phoenix and can play all year long.
