Bri is getting married . . .

Memories of Bri

December 23, 2011. From my Journal

So far this morning we have had enough chaos for the year. I woke up to the odor of cooking. Knew it had to be Peter. Came down and Hope was sleeping on Carol s mattress and Peter had the Santa hat on and a white quilt batting beard that he had just made --- and was busy cooking eggs. ALYESKA gives free passes today if you are dressed like Santa.

Peter is using the Santa hat he made at least 15 years ago. He also found my quilt batting and elastic in the drawers in his room that I would not have found without a month's notice.

Hope gets up and decides to finish the rest of her sleep in my bed. Bri phoned at 7 am and said " Hope, I want to ask you a really big favor." Hope awoke suddenly from a deep sleep and thought she said, "Hope, I have a really cute Christmas outfit for you." Hope replied "Thank you so much, Bri" wondering why on earth she  was calling at 7am. Bri wondered why Hope was thanking her for asking for a really big favor.

Bri continued that she left her car off Dowling last night and needed a ride to go pick it up right away. Hope took her to find her car but Bri was unsure exactly where it was and did not have her remote starter to turn on the lights of the car so she could spot it. Evidently they rode around for quite a while before she remembered where she left it. Hope said she had a smile on her face the whole time. So Bri.

Soon Ethan came by for Peter. He sat at the counter and I had fun talking to him, then Heidi and Brian came by and they all left with Santa outfits for the ski slopes.

Pretty soon Bri and Graham left with Hope in Bri s car in their Santa Outfits. Charles, jet lagged, hung around for "boss" Scott Woodland" to finish the Snow White Cleaner employee parties and drive down to ALYESKA. He also needed to borrow some of Scott s equipment. I got to listen to a few patent attorney calls, too. 

Then Hope calls to say their car broke down and they were sitting on the highway all in Santa outfits so they could get the free ski pass. Charles said he and Scott could pick them up in the truck soon. But Scott was late. Terry drove down and tried to charge the battery. They got as far as Potter Mailboxes with Terry's charge. Scott arrived at the house and then they left and picked them up. Whew . . So 3 kids at ALYESKA, 2 dressed as Santa.

A stranger, dressed as Santa, walked up to Charles and gave him the free ticket he just earned for dressing as Santa. Charles had not attempted an outfit.  Evidently they all thought the conditions were superb, thanks to the new snow.
