"Christmas"

I had a nifty idea - "Let's have Christmas together before I leave." So, Jill, David, Miranda and I had "Christmas" on Labor Day. We opened presents and made our traditional Christmas Breakfast with little smokies, scrambled eggs and cinnamon rolls. We even had hot spiced cider (there's no egg-nog to be found in September). We also had a mini "Cheese Fest" - a spread of special cheeses and crackers. (This was a tradition Jill and David started, that I think I will continue). We ended the day by watching The Nativity Story movie.
It was super fun! Check out the pics.

I put this up on the front door to make the neighbors curious.

This was our big pile of presents underneath my tiny tree.


This is Miranda with her Crocs Cell Phone Holder and Jill with one of her pepper pots.

Here is David with a picture of me.

Here is Gadget. She was not amused by the camera.
