Christmas in Kentucky
And finally a few pics from our Kentucky Christmas. Something about it seemed extra magical this year....maybe the snow, maybe the quiet, maybe my sudden love for bird watching and the birds who obliged ...maybe the fireplace, the golden glow of all the indoor photos...probably all of it combined.
(The treasure our little junior deep forest explorers discovered....it's now a prized possession on top Hudson's bookshelf. "No, Hudson, you may not sleep with the deer skull tonight. Why? 'Cause mommy says")
Now that us grandkids are grown up we've started to establishing some new family Christmas traditions. Andrea channels her former Starbucks barista self and brews up amazing coffee. Danielle brings some fabulous homemade desserts and breads. Mom does the turkey or ham. And the rest of us work together in the kitchen trying out new veggie recipes. It's pretty much awesome.
We do a lot of impromptu harmonizing...yep, we're geeks like that.
And we laugh and play with the great-grandchildren, enjoying the blessings of four generations under one roof.
More later : )
