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.
Lee and Wendy. Robert took these pictures for us.
Lee, Wendy and Missy
Amy and Lee
Amy and Mom
Michael and Amy
Martha Stewart has nothing on Amy!
Michael in his Carolina snuggie. He told his cousins that he too had a snuggie and they sort of laughed but I bet he'll like it a lot because there house is freezing!!!!
Amy, Carol and Leah (Carol's daughter in law).
More of the group. There were 18 of us in all. It was really nice.
Christmas socks from Sue. My sister is known far and wide for her great choice in decorator socks :-) Amy got some too and was so excited that Aunt Suzy didn't let her down :-) By the way Sue, she was really pleased with the colors too. Michael even wore his Argyle Chirstmas socks to lunch at Carol and Rocks!
Lee and his autographed cap. John and Sharen (and Brandon and Emily) got Lee this World Series Championship cap and then had CC Sebathia autograph it. He's a pitcher and won the ALCS MVP in 2009. And, in case you thought I was blind or something, I did tell Lee that he looks a lot like a convict in this picture!
Isn't this the greatest hat for NC? It will keep his ears warm and he'll be ready to play Daniel Boone or whoever roamed the hills of NC!
Missy and Mom. Missy really wanted to be in the action!
In fact, here she is looking for a present!
And of course she found a treat!
And this was our Christmas in pictures. I hope you can see that we had a great time.
I'll blog again after the first of the year unless there's news sooner!!!
Love to all,
Lee, Wendy and Missy
