We spent Christmas and New Years at home in Kansas City. Last year we donated our tree to charity. Karen kept her collectable ornaments that includes many hanging Santa Claus figures. She still has not decided to give them up before we hit the road.
Although Karen did decorate a small tree! It’s a stick with a broken bulb hanging from it. I lost the photo somewhere.
We got a big dose of Christmas spirit by visiting the Hall of Waters in Excelsior Springs. The facility was built in 1937 as a place to bottle and distribute the healing, medicinal mineral waters of Excelsior Springs. It now serves as our City Hall. Per their website, the city was founded in 1880 on a site where 20 springs were discovered. There are four distinct varieties of water that gives Excelsior Springs the distinction of having the world’s greatest group of mineral waters. The springs include two of the world’s six known iron-manganese springs. We sure are going to miss our wonderful water once we hit the road!
Lined along the walls of the building during the Christmas season are decorated trees. Local businesses and organizations decorate their tree with various themes.
Karen and I both hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. I’ve had a fun time reading about where each of the bloggers I follow spent their holidays. And thank you to my sister Lisa for hosting the family over at her house! That was very special.
Next week I should be posting about the basic fifth wheel floor plans Karen and I have been able to narrow down to during our search. Our local RV show is next week! It’s like a holiday for me.
