Thanks to Grandfather and Cora for the lovely crib set, and thanks to "Mimi" for the beautiful crib. I set it up yesterday and it looks really nice and cozy. We'll be doing the rest of the room when my mom gets back from Atlanta this coming weekend. I think we have the beginnings of a really lovely nursery.

Happy Christmas! We'll be in New Mexico this year - our last Christmas as a family of 2. I am off for a week and a half, and I have no idea what to do with myself. Maybe it's time to set up a nursery of some kind. Hmm.
Haven't been doing a lot of fun touristy stuff lately. We did go to a talk at the Albuquerque Museum on Sunday to hear about the Italian immigrant community here in town. It was alright, though not quite as formal a lecture as I was expecting - more the reminiscences of a mature gentleman whose grandfathers both came over from Tuscany in the early 1900s.
Mostly we've been eating a lot, celebrating early Christmas with my mom before she heads back to Houston to see my brother.

Forgot to post some pictures of Thanksgiving. Had a lovely time up at Dad's new cabin in Glorieta. On Turkey Day, it was pretty warm - about 60 degrees at the high. Overnight, however, we got some snow. Actually, we got a heluva lot of snow. I think we got about a foot by the time we left. Getting out of Glorieta was its own adventure, but I don't really want to spend a lot of time with that.
Dad prepared a fabulous bird. We convinced him to buy an "all natural" number, something not injected with god-knows-what, not raised in a small cage, etc. It was absolutely the best bird I've ever eaten.
We went for a nice walk down dad's street the next day in the snow. My mom, who is from Buffalo, NY and therefore no stranger to the white stuff, exclaimed that she had never seen snow like that before. It was beautiful powder - would have made for some great skiing.
