  1. What Dogs Do After Santa Leaves

    December 25, 2009 by myeye

    We are having a very lazy Christmas Day.  For the most part the dogs are napping — with an occasional frap.  Holmes is fascinated with the mirrored closet doors.  When he’s admiring himself, he doesn’t try to lick the camera lens.  I used a little posterization for this shot to compensate for mirror distortion.

  2. Christmas Eve

    We had a lovely evening.  The food was grand, the company was even better, and it seemed that everyone received gifts he/she liked.  Adrienne’s gifts included games of which I had never heard — I am SO out of touch.

    I forgot to take photos of the carnage as the presents were opened.  I was too busy saying oooh and aaah, and there are no photos of us eating because — we were all too busy eating.  I promise everything was so very good.  There is nothing like a laid back evening with family — nothing.

    *  Yes, Kim, we did add some Hatch green chile to the salsa.  Our tastebuds must be hardened by our regular chile diet!  However, everyone commented favorably about the great flavor — must be the garden fresh ingredients.  Thank you again for sending it down to me.
