Merry Christmas 2009

Your’e never too old for Christmas, right?

My mother may be 80 but she loves stuffed animals especially those that make noise and move. She has most of her Christmas stuffed animals on display in her bedroom suite. These photos are of just some of the decorations and stuffed animals in her bedroom. She has more on display in the hallway outside her bedroom.

You are never too old for Christmas, right?

Feliz Navidad de la Isla

I am heading out to a hotel near the airport for the night so I don’t have to deal with the hassle of snowy, icy streets in the morning. I have an early AM flight and do not want to chance missing it.

Merry Christmas and have a very safe New Year!

Turn up your volume, this woman has a great voice.

A stressful Chistmas Eve but all turned out good

I do not think that I ever had such stressful Christmas Eve in all of my life. Tara and Kelly came over about noon and Kelly shoveled a walk way in my driveway so I could get to their vehicle. We drove about 20 miles to Beavercreek  on  pretty horrendous streets. We saw several trucks and SUVs sideways on the side of the highway or street and one truck in a huge ditch. It took probably three times longer than normal to drive to Cindy and Randy’s house for their early Christmas Eve dinner. It was well worth it though because the prime rib was great not as awesome as last year but really great. The grilled bacon wrapped asparagus was absolutely fabulous.

The temperature got up to about 36 so the precipitation was pretty much rain for an hour or so. The drive home was much better until we got close to home and off of the main roads. Kelly had to put the vehicle back into 4 wheel drive. The low tonight is supposed to be below freezing so there will be a nice sheet of ice on the streets tomorrow.

San Jose del Cabo – Feliz Navidad

Several years ago I spent the week before Christmas in San Jose del Cabo at Worldmark’s Coral Baja Resort. I only took a few photos before my very first digital camera died. San Jose del Cabo is nothing like its sister city Cabo San Lucas. San Jose has a true zocola and small town feel.


This photo is at the “Trailer Park” next door to Coral Baja.
