Merry Christmas 2010!

Merry Christmas!

We had a wonderful family afternoon and evening at our house yesterday for Christmas Eve. Our two grand-daughters were the center of much of the attention – Christmas really is for kids! Dinner included a 6 lb boneless turkey breast – 2 hours at 325 degrees – delish! and a Niman Ranch ham – along with a bunch of side dishes brought by family members including root vegetables, Brussels sprouts, and Julie’s Petite Potatoes. Family, great food, and sharing – it doesn’t get any better than that!

For fun this morning, I used Scout from Big Huge Labs to create a poster of my “best” photos on Flickr. Scout uses Flickr’s “interestingness” results to rank the photos.
