WINTER WONDERLAND

I hope everyone has had a special time with family or friends this Christmas!
We have enjoyed a most beautiful White Christmas (the first in several years!).
There is still alot of snow on the ground.



Here are some of our pictures I'd like to share with you......
On Christmas Eve, our daughter Jami fixed an assortment of appetizers. In addition to some of the usual ones we have each year, she also served these delicious stuffed plum tomatoes, and Bacon-wrapped Stuffed Jalepenos. They were so good! I will be posting the recipes on my Recipe Blog shortly.

Appetizers and

We usually have brunch on Christmas day
instead of lunch,
but this year decided to have
Hungarian 'Christmas Soup'
served with Sourdough bread and
European butter, along with a
Fruit and Spinach Salad.

Bill made the soup,
which contains primarily
Kolbasi, Sauerkraut, & Mushrooms.
It was very good!
I think our relatives in Slovakia
would've been proud of him!

....then on Christmas morning.

Our living room on Christmas morning,
after the gifts had been opened,
and the mountain of wrapping paper, bags
and boxes had been removed.


Chocolate Torte, anyone?
This is actually the cross tie wall
outside our back porch door.


Below is the door at the opposite end
of the back porch.
& the walkway leading to
garage apartment.

Jami had to put on my old snow boots
to walk around outside.
6"-8" of snow
with some ice underneath.

Here's her car in the driveway.

I'm hoping the roads aren't too icy tomorrow,
but it has been a lovely Christmas weekend!!
Hope it was for you, too!
