Merry Christmas!

This will probably be my last blog before Christmas so I wanted to wish everyone who reads my blog a "Merry Christmas!!!".

I also wanted to add one photo for the day (because a blog posting just doesn't feel complete without a photo).  I was looking out our side window to check on the conditions of the driveway and I noticed a large flock of turkeys (Is a group of turkeys considered a flock?  A herd?  A school?  Does anybody know?).  I have been seeing this group of turkeys way back at the edge of the field but couldn't see how many there were.  I count almost two dozen in the photo!  "Back in the day" one would have made a nice Christmas dinner... Luckily for them, we are having quiche instead (my family likes to do a big Christmas brunch and then just nibble on cheese and crackers and sweets for the rest of the day).

Speaking of my family... I have to give them a call when I am done blogging.  We are trying to figure out if the roads are going to be OK for them to travel out here.  This is my first year hosting our Christmas gathering and I will be sad if it gets cancelled.  Charlie has already assured me that if they don't come this way that we will drive to them (he's a professional you know -- still scared me half to death last night driving to the grocery store ).  In either case, we are praying for safe travels.  

I would love to hear from any of my readers -- are you traveling this Christmas?  Are you going to see all your loved ones?  Oh, and what's for Christmas dinner?

By the way -- my Mom really likes her stitch markers. Thanks again for the swap. : )
