Three Beautiful Things 12/27/14: Birthday Dinner, Zags Win!, Home Safely

1.  It was a great birthday, not really celebrated so much as quietly acknowledged, with a bunch of Facebook messages and a scrumptious dinner featuring Christy cooking us a delicious minestrone soup.  Paul, Carol, Cosette, Christy, Mom, and I gathered around Mom's kitchen table for an excellent family/birthday time together.

2.  Before dinner, we watched the Zags take a few body blows from the BYU Cougars and assert themselves late in the game to come away with a 87-80 victory.   The victory helped our dinner and time together be even more enjoyable.

3.  At 2:13 a.m. of the early hours of 12/28, I received a welcome text message from Carol that she and Paul were back home in Kellogg after a late night trip to Spokane to pick up Molly and Kai at the airport.  They made it safely on I-90 which had been closed earlier in the day and over the Fourth of July Pass where many accidents had occurred.  We are in the midst of a significant snow dump and I'm very happy that everyone is home safely.
