All I Want for Christmas is my Kitchen Done

And it's getting close, but work continues today, and it looks like we will still be banished from the kitchen this evening for Christmas Eve dinner. Since we traditionally order Chinese food for the evening, it won't be too bad, though it looks like paper plates and plastic cups, too!

Libby found a lovely recording for Barber's Christmas arrangements for orchestra which we will be listening to today. We will also put on a Cello Christmas, A Yorkshire Christmas, and a few others. Catch Libby at 5, 6 and 10 pm Masses around town (email me for locations). Otherwise, we'll be here, with a roaring fire and the smell of whatever-they-did-in-the-kitchen-today. And Peking Duck.

Also...I have not mailed any Christmas cards yet. I am usually late, but never this late. Here's the Christmas photo...note the Mona Lisa smiles on everyone's face. I dunno. I took 200 photos, and this was the best. Really.

Have a Merry Christmas, everyone!!

Fantastic shot! I love how you always manage a snowfall picture.

Merry Christmas, Derhams!

Last year my Christmas cards didn't make it out until Ash Wednesday!

This year they should make it out by Epiphany....
