'Tis the season to be busy

No time for blogging the past few days. Have been getting ready for a big family Christmas, 17-pound turkey and all. Shopping is done, presents are wrapped and under the tree, excitement building, thinking about having everyone home together. Our Boston son is coming today, any time now, but the Colorado contingent had to cancel out. One son sat on a plane in Denver for hours before they canceled his flight. His car in the parking lot was buried in snow and 5000 people were stranded at the airport, according to the news. He called me as he left the plane and cleverly rented a car, drove home and slept in his own bed instead of at the airport. In the meantime our Durango son and his wife had their flight canceled, too, which was supposed to connect in Denver today. The airlines were rescheduling flights for Christmas Eve, which would have given the kids about 36 hours at home before they had to return on the 26th. Not going to happen. So the Durango couple will go skiing as a consolation prize (I'm sure they feel bad about that) and the Denver son will no doubt go to my sister's in Boulder for Christmas dinner. In the meantime my daughter here has planned a mini-reunion tomorrow for her cousins and my other sister's family, because her brothers would all be home at the same time. We'll have a great time seeing them all, but wish our boys could have come, too. Happy holidays to all. I'll be doing more cooking than blogging over the next few days.

Nice to know that you are, as well, an accomplished culinary artist. I trust you and Bob's first lovenest with that spacious kitchen became a blessing for your children. Good foods, great times at the din-din table, and now you have that same opportunity to share with that little special artist in your life.

Merry Christmas to Nita's family.

Guess Who?
