The Christmas season has come and gone. We went from snow flurries the day after Christmas to a 70 degree day for New Years. We only had Cindy with us for Christmas, but we were joined by Mart (Durelle's brother) and Ann for New Years Eve. The entre for Christmas was a standing rib with a broccoli casserole. New Years saw us with baked ham and an old family recipe for potato salad complete with the original bowl.
The first picture shows Baxter opening a present. The second is our magnolia tree in a snow flurry. The third shows that a trace of the snow survived for a few hours in cool spots. Finally, the story behind Baxter's being curled up under a side table is that fireworks are legal here. He was as nervous as Michael Vick addressing an ASPCA convention. The celebrations ended shortly after midnight New Years, but he had a few hours while he really wanted to be somewhere else.
We wish you all the best possible 2011.
