Christmas trip to Mississippi 2011

Made a quick to see the grand-darlings the weekend before Christmas. Everyone getting big and we had a great time. It was also Emma's 2nd Birthday.

I brought some little sun-catchers for the kids to make for me and their other grandmothers and they jumped right in and got busy

Aunt Lisie and Emma

Nana and Grand-girls

We spent Christmas weekend at home, sick. Weather was cold and gray and rainy. Some friends from our bible study class came and ate lunch. Quiet but pleasent.

Garden stuff

not too much going on in the garden right now but last weekend, I got all the tomato plants pulled out. 4 big bags of debris. They never bounced back after a wind storm we had a couple months ago. So I put in 2 row of Collard greens and 1 row of brussel sprouts. And now I have babies:
Zinnia are really loving this cooler weather and are doing better than they did all summer. They never got thick enough to chock all the grass out, but I have been able to cut several big bunches every few days. I'm going to just let them keep on going. They will bloom until Christmas if the weather stays mild.
Mums are everywhere right now of course and I love them. I picked these 2 huge plants up at a local nursery for 75% off-about $4 each. Love the colors:

The Bird Story

We had a wonderful day in the Rocky Mountain National Park. We decided to have a picnic lunch while we were there. You see these signs all over the park:
but what do you do when the wildlife is brave enough to help themselves?
after checking out all our goodies, he zeroed in on my expensive Havarti with dill cheese
even pecked on the plastic bag after I put it up

Off the beaten path

Hubby bought a map book that shows all the little back roads. Here's a few pictures from the area around a little town called Alma,
