Fiesta Navidad

Christmas began today with walk in the morning sun.  Finding our neighbor Fran on top of his roof cleaning his chimney was a bonus.   Yes, for real - you can't make up that sort of story.   Apparently Santa couldn't make it down his Chimney, hence the sweeping. And, if you know Fran, with his shoulder length white hair emerging from his hooded coat, dimpled cheeks and jolly laugh, it was like seeing Santa himself on a rooftop when he bellowed "Merry Christmas"to us both.

While much of our family, including those in Colorado, Montana, Pennsylvania and even those in  North Carolina and England are enjoying snow, it is a green Christmas here in CT.  We opened a few gifts and enjoyed coffee and cake using our new Fiesta dinnerware. The plate features pound cake from Kerry and Brandon, Cranberry bread from Gene and Kathy and Chocolate covered marshmallows from Mark and Jen.  Feliz Navidad!
