I've been gone far too long...in recompense here's a Lorrie Moore story I just read in the New Yorker yesterday while returning Christmas gifts.
Since I've blown right past the holidays, here are some pictures from our Christmas to keep the voyeurs occupied:
Our first turkey: cooked, stuffed and designed by JM. It tasted fantastic.
Our first tree--small, but what a great nook, eh? And let me tell you, it always looks like a lot of presents when you have a tree this size!
Since we now have a fireplace that has the right kind of hooks, the tradition about stockings suddenly makes a lot of sense.
Here's hoping your holidays have been as fun and festive as they can be, without leading to death or dismemberment to you or your loved ones.
