Christmas 2010

We've been getting our Holiday on in the US!  Lots of good food and fun and visiting with family and friends.  Christmas dinner was a standing rib roast and among other yummy side dishes some phenomenal stuffing.

Stateside

We made it out of Paris on Friday December 17 before the snow chaos hit, we were very lucky.  We did have a 3 1/2 hour mechanical delay, oh well.  Carrie picked us up at Dulles and we spent the night at her house and had a great visit.  The next morning we went to see the model trains at Colvin Run Mill where Mitchell and David were setting up.  Then it was on around to Kensington and of course, lunch at Continental Pizza!  There is sewer construction on Grannie's street and a little bit of snow. Lots of excitement.

On Sunday Z and GG drove up from Wilmington, NC and we had a nice visit.  On Monday night we all met Shana for dinner.

Winter

Alex and his challah
We had snow in Paris last week, 5 inches, and the city came to a halt (except for the metro).  Alex has been enjoying the Winter Carnival in our town, riding the train, driving the cars, and the trampoline.  He also made challah at Sunday Funday which was pretty good.

December


It's been very cold here and we've had snow flurries, but nothing compared to England and Germany.  Our town is getting ready for Noël with lights and a winter carnival. We made latkes for Hanukkah and tried to make a potato nik.
