Some of our favorite ornaments
Diablo "himself" on the tree
In memory of our dearest Hercule
We are all tired as we sit down to dinner. The opening of the presents lasted some hours
I had made some stuffed dates
They were not bad:)
After dinner we celebrated David's birthday, more fun!
It feels like this was as long time ago.....not even a week.

Em's deft fingers placing marzipan filling on dough in our kitchen on Christmas day for her world famous oh-so-yummy 10hr sweet bread.
Then she rolls and closes the thin 26 inch or so rectangles so we can't see the filling now!
Braiding, btw, she is fast!
And attaching the 2 ends to form the "couronne"
And voila! You can't believe the sweet smell...As you can guess it is a thing of the past by now...sigh....
Just posting these pics today, sorry for the delay. I am home with a cold, not bad, luckily:) Will post more tomorrow.

Last picture taken before Thanksgiving...very frustrated...haven't stepped in my studio since but I am wondering when I will do so since I am so busy before Christmas.
Who knows where I am going with this, I certainly do not: all chopped up, no unity....bla...bla...bla...(I am interested in critiques)
BTW I am very excited these days because I am going to take an online class from very talented DJPettitt titled "Online Photoshop Class". I strongly encourage you to check it out! And of course go check DJ's blog.
Beautiful "mold" growing on apples slices....no, I did not make an apple tarte
On our kitchen floor, a group of exhausted ants dragging away a piece of bacon hoping we would not notice...
PS: I seem to be hearing some "disgusting....yuck!"...chuckling away...

The master of the house...
Oh, baby! Finally I was not short any more!....If only for a few hours!
Back at home more pictures before I throw away those cruel shoes!
Oh, so sweet, no?
Ted, David and our very own Marilyn.....Emily!
David and Franswazz, the latter looking like birds have been flying in and out of her hair. If so I did not notice! BTW, very natural pose for me.....:(
These are pictures taken Saturday December 15 during and after the MZA Christmas party at Los Poblanos Inn
I am still laughing about these shoes, they were a hit! I called them "killer" shoes, both because you can actually kill someone with these and they can kill your feet!
Here are a few pictures that I am throwing together, as I have picked them from my stash, not necessarily in sequence: too much time!
