Christmas dinner was wonderful as always. Lou held back and did just a 12 pound turkey. We ate 0.8 lbs for dinner, so have a few leftovers leftover.
A photo journalist looks at our Christmas dinner:
Our special guests were Dana Scully and Fox Mulder. They took time off from the X-Files to join us (thanks to the Holmes family)
Thinking of family and friends on Christmas morning. Hope you all have a wonderful Holiday.
Almost! It seemed like Christmas today as I was decorating the tree as it was snowing outside. Lou continued unpacking his train stuff and shoveling snow.
We are having a mini potluck tonight with our neighbors – at our house which is nice. We don't have to go out!
The mailman had to hike through the snow to deliver today:
All ready for the neighbors to arrive … I am sure Stitch and Natasha will be excited to have company!
I will try to get some photos of the tree in daylight. We went with a nautical / lobster / Maine Woods theme.
It was an easy drive home yesterday and we were unpacking the car before noon. All is well at the House – just going to take a few days to adjust to having snow on the ground and freezing outside!
There was quite a bit of snow at our hotel in Freeport … (that's the new truck – more room and more comfortable for long drives than the Jeep)
No snow during the drive to Northport, just evidence of the earlier storm:
Still snow on the ground but a lot less than in Freeport:
Our bald eagles are still here. A very large one stopped by – this is just a quick shot with the iPhone. Have to unpack the camera gear.
Okay … gotta get outta the warm bed and take the dogs out in the snow!!!
Almost! We have a short drive tomorrow to Northport and we will be ready to hunker down for the winter.
The drive North has been good, a short spurt of rain but mostly sunshine.
Here is Stitch, watching tv in the hotel room:
