December Fun

 Here's December (so far) in picture mode...

Walking for my Mama in the Arthritis Jingle Bell Walk/Run, we are Oma's Angels.

Yahoo, we did it!  Unfortunately, without my angel friends from last year.  
Way too many surgeries going on!

DJ directed me to youtube to find out how to make these scarfs...  
Redskins vs Cowboys.  Oh, the things I do for my family/friends!

Spike, our elf, has kept us a little busy following him around.

Shopping in historic Ellicott City with DJ, this was our view from one of the windows in the antique shop.

Fun at St. Nick Night, making crafts.

Great sledding hill at the house for our first snow of the season.

Aww, our first ornament together, first one on the tree.

I finally made my Mom's German hazelnut cookies, I thought they turned out pretty good!

Nathan's "C" for Christmas, singing with the scouts at a nursing home.

Our annual visit to the National Christmas tree in DC.

The lake house tree up and ready for presents!

Tomorrow is Christmas Eve and for the first time in I don't know how many years, I finished wrapping everything last week and can relax and make Santa his favourite cookies when he comes to the house - iced sugar cookies!
