Christmas Day started out beautiful but cold.
The trees at the park across the street were covered with hoar frost or, as some people call it, rime ice. We took the dogs out for a walk and so that I could take some pictures. I’ve never seen anything quite as gorgeous as these white trees against the beautiful blue sky.
My nephew Joe has just accepted a new job in the suburbs of Denver. They, however, weren’t going to be in their new house until the Monday after Christmas so we (actually Amanda and Evan) invited Joe, Kim, Max, Ali and Chris up for Christmas dinner. Who wants to spend Christmas day in a hotel??
Dinner was scheduled for 1:00 p.m. Unfortunately, someone didn’t think to bring the oil (we were frying the turkey) into the house to keep it from freezing. This was the solution to thaw it out so we could get to cooking. We finally ate about 3:00 p.m. and it was great food shared with family. All in all a very nice day.
