To all the folks that read our blog, we want to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a terrific year  for 2013.

The following picture is a sunrise shot that I took in 2008.  It is still a very good depiction of what our backyard looks like this year.  Glad to say we will soon be away from all this and where it is warm and sunny.

Anderson Day

The annual Anderson get together for Christmas was held today and we had a very good crowd of 33 people.  Twelve of these were teenagers or younger including two babies.  It was a very nice group that had a good time and plenty to eat.

This first picture is part of the group watching the Viking football game before dinner.

The next two pictures are of the layout of food and the start of the crowd to fill their plates.

The next two pictures are of niece Lynda and her husband, Herb and Pat's brother, Jerry. The second one is Jerry from the front.

The next picture is an after dinner shot of niece, Deb, and her husband, Jim (a/k/a J.B.), Pat's sister, Joanne, Pat, and sister-in-law, Elva, having coffee.

It was a good day!

Just a Day

It's hard to believe that yesterday our yard was green and the streets were dry.  Today is a different story. 

The birds were having a hard time finding food in the feeders as the feeders were full of snow.  I went out with the broom and cleaned them off but it's only been a couple hours and they're covered again.

I don't think we'll be using our gazebo any time soon either.

It's a good day to watch football.  I hope the Vikings win too!
