December 2008

Here in the Northeast, December brought two early storms, back-to-back. The first, a 10" storm in our area, also brought an ice storm to areas just north and west of us. The second, a 9" storm left this beautiful scene just down the road.
Auntie Raine held her anual Family Christmas party during the second storm and so here are David and Mark, brothers happy to be together. Mark works overseas and so we get to see him when we get to see him.
My little landscape trees don't mind the snow ... and they had their little twinkle lights to keep them warm.
At Helen's house there are four new Pekingnese puppies. One week old in this shot, their eyes were still closed and they were squeaking like mice or mewling like kittens.
Happy Birthday David!
Blow out those candles, if you can, 'old man'.
The Chief had a birthday too and now it's official -- only four more years 'til retirement -- for he and I!
A new digital camera and a smiling face.
The cat who thought the tree was just for him. Silly boy.
Girl cousins on Christmas day. Jamie, Jazmine, Emily and Amy.
Lights but no ornaments. Yet.

And so, it's been a busy month of many events to prepare for, get to and enjoy. We have.
I do so hope your December held good things for all of you.
Merry Christmas!
