While we missed everyone in CA and NV, we had a really nice time here in North Carolina. We celebrated Christmas Eve with Amy and Michael at their new house and then at Michael's aunt and uncle's house. That was really nice.
Today, Christmas day, we cooked a turkey dinner and invited a friend from the apartment complex to join us. He didn't have any family here in town so we asked him to join us for Christmas dinner and that was a lot of fun for all of us. The turkey was medium rare after 4 1/2 hours so we ate MUCH later than planned but it did taste good once we started eating...I wonder if we were just half starved by then ;-)
Here are our Chirstmas pictures for 2009.
