Christmas Eve

We are enjoying our first day of the Christmas holiday at home. The snow that came over the weekend has brought us the holiday spirit, including a little "South Beach" flavor thanks to Gene and Kathy Fiese. In the midst of the weekend storm a "way cool" Santa and two tiny flamingos (flasher and flicker, flamingos with antlers) landed in the lawn just off the deck.

Today we trekked to the garden, and dug through 8" of snow to harvest Brussels sprouts and leeks for our Christmas Eve dinner. Stay tuned for a December Face of Produce!
The temperatures are rising and the snow quickly melting, but we might just sneak in a white Christmas.
