....and a good time was had by all

Our family weekend Yule gathering was simple, enjoyable and peaceful. We ate, we laughed, we shared, and a good time was had by all.  It actually did not snow over the weekend so no worries about the kids driving down the NY State Thruway in bad weather.

Here are a few pictures.  Short post today, gotta go get in line at the post office...errggh!!  And of course it is snowing again....double errggh!!!

and enjoy every idle hour. "
