There and back again

We had such a great time last weekend visiting with my mom's family at the "Bogart Brunch" in Columbus. My wonderful grandfather hosted all of us at the Ohio State University Faculty Club. They were having a Santa brunch and after we stuffed ourselves with amazing food - we were showered with gifts, including some Santa cookies larger than our heads.
The trip was tiring, but worth it. And now we are back here in the promised land where it will be in the upper 60's tomorrow, so to celebrate the kids and I spent some fun time at the Gardens this morning.
Looks like we won't be sending out Christmas cards. Instead we'll aim for Happy New Year cards. How does that sound? Maybe I can get them to you before Valentine's ...............

The Perpetual Twenty - Nine

You may have guessed - or received a reply email from me - that the reason I am not posting is that our camera is once again out of commission. I dropped it. Again. Surprise, surprise.

But no fixing it this time, no sirree. Guess what I'm getting for my birthday? And have no fear, my friends, after I receive this gift I will once again post with diligence.

In less than a half hour I will be the eternal 29.

If my life is half this good 29 years from today as it is right now, I will be one very happy person.

Thanks for the memories.

Oh Christmas Tree

Every year we hike through the Christmas tree farm in search of the perfect tree. This year it was slim pickins. With the drought, etc. there were very few of our favorite variety available, but we found one that we loved and brought it home and made it our own.
Here are a couple of pictures of our adventures. Hope your holidays are merry and bright!

It's St. Nicholas Day. Did he fill your shoes with candy?
